This is an older restaurant but the service and food were great. We had to eat in their outside patio which helped keep us out of the wind. There was no inside dining because of restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 virus.

There is a sign up with a note that all to go orders will be charged a 20% service fee. Totally understandable in these times. I ate on their patio and my bill had a 20% service fee. I inquired and was told that all...orders are to go, despite the fact that they brought a check to my table and took my card to run it. It’s deceptive. I usually tip more than 20%, so it cost the server money and the business a bad review. Also...the food was good and the service was meh at best.More

The Friday Fish Fry and cheese curds were good. Fries were a bit soggy. Liked how easy it was to order and pick up.

picnic tables under a large tent. service was fair. Menu varied. Nothing was a 'i have to go back and eat that again'. atmosphere fair. very casual. Seems like they get overflow when other restaurants are booked.

This restaurant is open every night which is very convenient! In Bayfield, only a few restaurants are open during the week. Not knowing this, we scrambled to find somewhere to eat our first night there. Other than a long wait to place our orders, we...had a good experience. (It seemed like everyone was scrambling to find a place to get food so there was a long line.) The food was tasty. We had Cajun whitefish. They had seating available outside which was nice as well. They currently are not open for indoor dining.More

My Husband and I chose to eat take out from Greunke's this past weekend because not much else was open in Bayfield. We were the 4th people in line when we arrived to order, and there were probably 8-10 others already waiting for their food...outside at picnic tables. When we got our food, which took an hour and a half and was over $40 for two meals without drinks because they automatically tacked on a 20% gratuity, it was soggy and cool to the touch. It was disgusting. We ended up going back to our B&B and they served us food from their home so we didn't go to bed hungry. We do not recommend.More

Had intended on eating at couple other places but they were closed or had 45 min wait and only 1 server working. This place not much different .. 15 mi wait in outdoor to order, 20 + minute wait for food in styrofoam take out...box. Eating area pretty shabby for food consumption but folks trying to stay somewhat distant id a rather confined area. Food OK, staff very busy and working hard but environment and process of ordering, sitting around until food ready, payment process is pretty awkward. For the cost, getting meals only in takeout clamshell boxes is a negative .. BE CAREFUL with paying the bill.... They automatically add 20% to the bill as a service fee gratutity.... but still have line for paying a "tip" whenin fact there is already 20% added ito it..More

Dine in was not open but patio tables were available. Menu was very limited. The daily special, meatloaf, was good.

Due to COVID-19 they are only doing take out although they also seem to be serving people seating outside. We called for an order for takeout and were told twenty minutes. We got there only to find a long line of people waiting to put...in orders. They were very overwhelmed and after waiting 20 minutes we finally got our food. The vegitable of the days was canned carrots. The whitefish was just ok. I think everywhere in town is having problemsMore

We had an early dinner seated outdoors on the deck on the most beautiful sunny late afternoon. I was skeptical about the fried whitefish liver appetizer but loved every bite! I also had the sautéed whitefish and my husband had the fried lake trout. Everything...was delicious! Since it was our anniversary, I also had a glass of Prosecco in the cute little glass with the Gruenke’s logo - which I bought as our only souvenir from this vacation.More

They offer their fish boils "throughout the summer" is what our waiter told us, but days and times vary. It would probably best to call ahead and check availability, most likely would be a weekend offering....
