Several years ago, my wife and I enjoyed an excellent meal at Wild Rice. On a recent road trip from eastern Ontario to Alberta, we took a route well out of way to return in hopes that it would be just as good. It was. The restaurant occupies a sleek, stark building that is perfectly at home in its north... More

We loved our meal at Wild Rice restaurant last night. Excellent food and service in a very beautiful place. I had buffalo ( first time), my partner had Alaskan halibut, and others had lamb and a specially prepared vegetarian plate. All four were top notch. Waiter suggested ideal wine pairings for each that were just right. Salads were excellent. What's... More

Was here on a Thursday night after making reservations and then a six hour drive. It was listed on a top ten Brandy Old Fashioned site so had to go check it out. First off they make a outstanding BOF. They have a house mix and then the standard mix. Both are muddled and both are top shelf but the... More

We had a fabulous time at Wild Rice restaurant recently. It is one of the highlights of our annual trip to Bayfield. The food was fabulous, Nick recommended a great wine, and we had a perfected situated table. The only dark cloud in this sunny experience was that service slipped just a bit this time. When we asked if there... More

Who would ever believe that the road through the woods (Old San Road) leads to the beautiful Wild Rice restaurant. Although the menu is limited and can be pricey (some entrees up to $60), the setting and ambiance is unique. If you do not want a full meal, patrons are welcomed in the bar and can order a selection of... More

We spent the week following the 4th in Bayfield. For dinners, Wild Rice was our best experience. We had been there with a large group of friends maybe ten plus years earlier. Glad we returned. Service was super attentive and friendly. Food was great for all four of us. Nice wine list. Expensive, like you would expect. The layout and... More
