Stopped in for lunch and will definitely be going back. Fish was served with cole slaw, beans, fries, bread, etc. Service was great - drinks were never empty and the staff was friendly and attentive. The desserts and pastries looked amazing but we were too full from lunch.

Now called, 'The Wild Boar'. My eyes were bigger than my stomach, already. Big mistake! *laughing* Our family of 4 ordered 4 different meals, and ALL of it was delicious! Friendly staff.

I believe this cafe is tied somewhat to the Rhinelander pub and cafe. That is a more traditional wisconsin supper club type restaurant while Ella's is better suited for a breakfast or lunch. We ate there in 2015, and it was good. A restaurant like this isn't likely to get five stars because there is nothing really unique about it.... More

Food was good, service was good. Our meal was so big we ended up taking a doggy bag home. Nice place for a weekend breakfast. I would go back again!

Good quality food. Nice portions. With coffee and tip $19.50 for 2. Only complaint is it is noisy with other dining guests. Hard to have a conversation. Easy access from hwy 51. Lots of parking. Handicap access.

I was recently at Ella's with several friends for supper and had a good meal. I had the coconut shrimp, it was tasty and reasonably priced. The only problem we had was somewhere along the line they forgot one of the guys meal but it was brought out very quickly and they didn't charge him for it which I thought... More

Our group came here for our monthly meeting. There was only one glitch that was quickly taken care of by management. Plenty of parking. It is at major intersection of 51 and 70 so convenient. Gas station/C-store adjacent for travelers. Relatatively new building and very attractive in a Northwoods way inside. Huge breakfast/lunch menu. We all had dinners that we... More
