This was a recommended restaurant. We were tired and wanted some American comfort food. Which the Yankee Rebel Tavern delivered. I started with a green salad, and some whitefish bites. Large portions. Served at the right temperatures. My entree was pot roast, with the usual potatoes, onions, carrots, and celery. It was tender and very tasty. My partner had a chef salad, which was very large, with many toppings. I had a glass of wine with dinner. They have a large bar, which is a nice place to wait for tables or dining companions. Our server was very professional and personable. June 1 is the beginning of the season, so the restaurant was not very busy yet. We would definitely come back to dine at this restaurant again.

We were there in early May--some staff still were still being trained but we had no issue--I liked the variety on the menu--the food was well prepared, had the pot roast)--very informal and easy going place--we liked it

Yes, it's a tavern environment. The standard "adequate" wait staff applies. I wish they would do a little more training here. Sushi...don't bother. Lettuce wrap...OK. Walleye...very good. On food alone, 4 rate...with service level 3 rate.

The Summer Walnut Salad is to die for. The mixture of Blue Cheese with Mixed Greens, Dried Cherries, Candied Walnuts and Pears is delicious and full of flavor. The Pot Roast was alright. The Pot Roast was a little too dry for my liking. My wife had the Mac and Cheese and a side Ceasar salad. She said the Mac and Cheese with smoked Gouda was really good. What I really liked was that they offered Petite Portions and Full size Portions. The Petite Portions were big enough and filling. The Service was very good and this restaurant has to be one of the biggest on the Island.
