We decided we wanted pizza and wanted to try something local. After reading the reviews for the WheelHouse we decided to try it. We didn't get to the restaurant until after 7:00 pm - we figured it wouldn't be too busy by then. Wrong - it was packed! The good news - these folks know how to run a restaurant... More

The WheelHouse is a very popular restaurant with various events many summer weekends. Their pizza is very good. Other menu items, however, are a bit more ordinary. Many summer weekends it's hard to even find a parking space near the restaurant. While the Wheel house does have good pizza, it's a restaurant I wouldn't travel more than a few miles... More

We have gone here three times. Once for the pizza buffet (by accident, we just happened to find the place and it was on that night). Pizza was ok, it's actually better on buffet night - which is hard to believe! We also went for a Friday Fish fry - but they don't have one! they do not fry fish... More

I usually try and hit this place at least 3 or 4 times during the summer after mountain biking at Hartman Creek. Great outdoor patio and Central Waters beers on tap. The last couple times I've been here (Fridays both times) I ordered something different. Once I had the roast beef sandwich and the other the pan fried walleye. Both... More

This was our second visit. Ate there last year around same time. Don't think we will go back. Spacious restaurant, friendly and attentive servers. Very noisey. Fish fry Friday, all fish are pan fried, potatoes are broasted. 14.95 for fish fry. Pizza, sandwiches, burgers and pasta offered. Other night specials offered. Across the parking lot is SHOPS ICE CREAM PARLOR.

The food is of the edible variety. It is not great, or even good, but one cannot say that it is not food. Their buffalo wings, however, are not buffalo wings. They are baked, with a side of hot sauce. They tasted bland and mushy. You can get local craft beers to wash down this technically food if you desire.

We eat here regularly! All the pizza is very tasty, service is good. Only complaint is they are always busy, but wait times are not too bad. We enjoy their outdoor seating too.

You may have to wait for a table at this popular place, but the wait is well worth it! I have enjoyed every meal I have gotten here from the chicken fettuccine Alfredo to the pizza buffet! Great ambiance!
