I went there with my friend's family. It was hard to get a table as they do not have many and it was the fourth of July weekend. The hostess was able to take our -pre-orders for food since my friend has two little ones. The food was typically of a bar. They items looked better on the menu than... More

We were greeted when we walked in the door and seated. We were very hungry so it was nice to get in, I had a pan fried Walleye which was very tasty. My husbands burger was very flavorful. The bar was very happy to make an ice cream drink for dessert. I ordered a Pink Squirrel we loved it and... More

My husband and I LOVE this place. We enjoy the bar, the food, and the staff! Everything is so inexpensive and they have specials every night they are open. I wish, the only thing, is that they were open Monday's and Tuesday's also...since I crave their chicken!

My husband took me to the Old Cedar Inn for my birthday last fall. Upon walking in, it appears to be nothing more than a bar until the hostess takes you beyond and into a dining room. While the staff is dressed extremely casually, and the atmosphere matches the attire, the food choices are a scale up from what I... More

Recently our community band stopped in for pizza and beer after our last concert of the year. We were able to get a few tables in the dining room but it was pretty crowded. The staff was very good at bringing out pizzas frequently. They were just frozen pizzas, nothing special but a good variety. They do have Franziskaner Weiss... More

My wife and I visited this pub for the first time for supper on a Thursday afternoon. Outside of the Pub looked simple and old, which the bar matched. The dining area had a newer feel with a large picture window to the parking lot. The bar was very busy at 530pm with my wife and I the first to... More

My husband and I have been to the Old Cedar Inn three times over the past five months and have never been disappointed. The people working at the restaurant are friendly and very helpful. My husband wanted to surprise me with having fresh flowers at our table for Valentine's Day. He took the flowers to the restaurant the day before.... More

I waited at my table for 20 minutes before being acknowledged by the waitress. She walked by multiple times and even sat down at another table to chat with other customers. When she finally came over, she was very short with us. Food was excellent!!!

The minute my wife and I entered we were greeted by several folks with a great big smile and a loud hello! A friendly place to visit and meet up with friends or make new friends. The bar area is small but welcoming including complimentary salty snacks. Prices are reasonable and selection of beers and liquors are good. There are... More

Friday Fish Fry was pretty good but the ambiance, service and setting was very, very lacking. There were 2 waitresses for the entire place who complained to each other about it being too busy. Not very nice to hear. The restaurant is very small. Tables are close. We sat basically ON TOP of the cash register and the waitress kept... More
