Had dinner here while visiting Bayfield. We had the Lake Superior Whitefish—one broiled, one fried. Both were very good. Also got the fish livers, but they were just so-so. I probably would not get them again. The atmosphere is particularly fun with a lot of...More

Visiting Bayfield the 4th weekend of October, it was surprisingly difficult to find a restaurant open for dinner! Luckily we found Greunke's the first night. Not a lot of variety on their menu. The Club Wrap was no-frills (I didn't get chips or anything served...More

During the Bayfield Apple Festival, we stopped in at Greunke's for a late afternoon lunch. We had the Wild Rice Chicken Soup which according to my husband was the Best Soup he has had in his 50 year lifetime. The atmosphere is captivating and cozy.

I ordered the meatloaf. I like onions but not to that extent. The only tase that came through was onion.My husband had whitefish and was disappointed with the mushy texture. We had to ask for our waitress several times, even to get the bill.

Four of us had breakfast on Labor day. Immediate seating and service from server. Very good eggs benedict. Others enjoyed their food just don't remember what they choose. Terrific memorabilia all over the walls.

Small facility but lots of charm. Food was decent and the service was more than adequate. Lots of interesting "stuff" throughout the restaurant with heavy emphasis on Coke memorabilia. The menu lists past guests of interest some of which were more than noteworthy.
