Good food and service as a good place to take a break from fishing or cooking your own meals in the northwoods at the "End of the Road"

We stopped in with some dads and sons after a high adventure camp. Nice selection of microbrews, all pretty good. We had burgers/sandwiches. The walleye sandwish was great. Sandwich plates with fries were about $10 each. Nine of us had a bill of around $200, whcih included some brews. Waitstaff tried hard, but the kitchen had a difficult time keeping up with the Saturday 'crowd'. We were without one order of fries for about 45 minutes which detracted from the experience. Half the place is more like a pub, with the other half having more of a restaurant feel. I'd go back again in a heartbeat.

Little brew tap with some decent food and interesting brewed concoctions. My wife loves the Blueberry beer , especially with the fresh blueberries added.

Great food, atmosphere, beer and service. Really unique menu with everything from burgers to hummus and naan. Loved everything about it and can't wait to go back!

Went for dinner and they had an all you can eat Walleye special. The fish was great and surprisingly not too greasy. When I asked for something less starchy as a side, the waitress quickly offered to ditch the potatoes and double the vegetables.

They brew their own beer and generally have a half a dozen brews to select from. I tried the blueberry ale and it was very nice.

Overall - a great value, great brew pub food.
