“Wings at the Vowinkle- A Cook Forest tradition”
Review of Vowinckel Hotel - CLOSED

Vowinckel Hotel
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 22, 2009

The Vowinkle's a must if you visit Cook Forest. The local flavor & personality of the area are right here. They're known for their huge platters of Chicken wings (a meal in itself). Chicken Parmesan & spaghetti another favorite. (Don't order a steak salad thinking it will be a light fare unless you like cheese & fries on top) Lots of appetizer type foods for small kids. Drinks are cheap too.

I love the Vowinkel Hotel, and stop by every couple days when I'm home. They serve big portions of Italian-American food at low prices in a country-type setting. There's a full bar and blankets on the tables, which is somewhat strange. Regardless, their spaghetti is fantastic, so much so I can hardly bring myself to order anything else. I haven't tried them, but their chicken wings are the size of an average entire chicken.

It's located on Route 36 at the junction of Forest Road, which leads into Cook Forest. It's between Leeper and Marienville on Route 36. If that's too vague, try calling 814-927-6610 for directions.
