I met a dear friend from high school here, and we had a chance to remember old times while dining at Three Coins. I was on a special diet--Whole30, and so I could not have certain foods (dairy, gluten, legumes, etc). The server and chef worked with me to find a meal I could enjoy and not have to "cheat"....

We have reviewed this restaurant in previous summer but must do so again because this year the fresh scallops wrapped in bacon was one of the best meals I have had ANYWHERE! Who would have thought it in a restaurant located in a lake resort in northern Wisconsin!! Kudos to the chef!

We had heard this place was above average and a real gem, boy were we disappointed. The place is old, dated and dirty. We had made reservations for 5:30pm on a Friday night and arrived early. We were very surprised that there was only one customer at the bar and two tables occupied in the dining room. Needless to say,... More

Dear R440Richards, I am sorry to learn that you were disappointed with your experience at our restaurant. There is no excuse for slow and apparently forgetful service, and I am not sure why it happened, especially if it was not busy. Good service and cleanliness, as well as good food are always priorities. Please do consider coming again. Sincerely, Kari... More

We love this place. Delicious food with an adorable setting. We love the weekend breakfast buffet. If you are looking for a bit nicer dining in the Northwoods atmosphere, this is the way to go.

We have been going to this restaurant for about 6 years, several times each summer. Until last year we would be sure to plan a Loooong time for dinner, as service was awful but the food was worth the wait. As of last summer, the service has improved greatly and the food continues to be amazing, if not better. They... More

What a great supper club!!! This gem is hidden away and it's part of Holiday Acres Resort, but open to the public. When we got to the resturant we spent a couple minutes exploring the main office and looking around the grounds. All the staff we talked to were extremely friendly and welcoming. I was so impressed with the resort... More

A few years back this place always has awesome food. We went back this year to this restaurant and surprised that their food are just ok... it missing some bold flavor, a bit bland. They must be have a different chef or something

The restaurant and bar are the highlight of the property. The dining room is so old it's back in style. The menu has some traditional options alongside something new to try. Menu items are truly chief inspired, I've like most everything I've had. However this writer must warn against the Friday night fish fry buffet. At $15.95 it's way way... More

We've had mixed experiences here this year as there has been a turnover in staff and a new chef. On this occasion , we were very pleased with our experience .
