Order yourself a brandy old-fashioned, and indulge in some Wisconsin nostalgia. The White Stag Inn has been serving steaks, chops and some fish for decades, grilled over a charcoal fire. The options are relatively limited, but it's all good. I can't say it is the best steak I've ever had. The White Stag is not a New York steakhouse, with... More

If you are looking for a true Wisconsin Supper Club experience, this is the place for you. From the well made drinks to the delicious steaks, chops, seafood, etc., all cooked over charcoal (out where you can see the process) you can't go wrong at the White Stag. The menu offerings are simple, but delicious. Homemade salad dressings, homemade sauce... More

I love supper clubs!! This one had a great Brandy Old Fashioned. The food was good as well. They do not have Ranch dressing. The menu was very limited and there was only one potato choice. The hilarious thing about this restaurant is about every 3 minutes a staff member wheels a cart full of clanking dishes right through the... More

Just what a supper club should be! Wedge of lettuce with the 3 dressings mixed covered in blue cheese crumbles ! Yum. Killer steaks cooked in the dinning room and a great old fashioned ! Nothing fancy just old time supper club done right !!!

I grew up in this area and my family and friends ate at the White Stag frequently. I was delighted to see, when I recently visited from out of state, that this place has not changed either its menu or its decor in fifty years. Dependable, flame-grilled steaks, chicken or chops, baked potato and iceberg lettuce wedges -- just as... More

We have been here many times and most recently last weekend after a 5 year hiatus (we just haven't been in the area). We were part of a group of 12 and arrived around 5:30. We got our name in and were able to be seated shortly after getting our round of drinks--this is much faster than we expected, especially... More

The people behind the bar seemed way too busy to be bothered with any of the customers; it didn't look that busy. The servers dismissive attitude seemed to indicate that we were an inconvenience to her. The food was mediocre for any price. The way we were greeted really set the tone for the night. Crappy service is the kiss... More

This place has long-time great reputation. My first visit; hubby has been here before. Entrance has few steps for mobility-limited folks. (can't remember any). ... Good service; drinks were served promptly; lettuce wedge salad was a surprise; but we loved their house dressing of "spicy french"; there were 2 other adventurous house dressings too. I ordered the smoked pork chops;... More

Drive several miles into the woods and you'll find the White Stag Inn. Located some miles north of Rhinelander, it's a most unlikely location to find such a fine restaurant. The interior brings back the "supper club" ambiance and the menu confirms it. Steaks, chicken and all done on a grill visible from your table. Busy with summer tourists, but... More

I've been driving by this place for 40 years and never stopped. Well the timing was right and we stopped in. What a treat! Good drinks ( crabby bartender see photo), good food and lots of it. Priced right. Will definitely stop again.
