We used to go to the Gateway Inn when it was in business years ago. We really missed the great Prime Rib and other food after it burned down. It took us a while to figure out that the Back 40 is in the same place after the fire. Too bad it took us a while because the food we just tried was really good. We really enjoyed everything we got. I suggest the owners spend a little money and advertise on at least radio. People should know about this place for a good meal.

We eat here frequently, and Chef Riley continues to create wonderful meals. His Chili is sweet and spicy, French Onion soup is fantastic. Cheese curds are made with smoked cheese. Fish Fry is the best in the area. The shrimp are hard to beat/ with his hand cut fries seasoned to perfection. Drinks are great, and the beer is ice ice cold Nice drive. Stop in, the casual dining area is a relaxed bar atmosphere, but, the food isn't.

Nothing fancy here but we enjoyed the burgers, haystack onions, cheese curds and ribs. It was a nice place to stop while out for a Sunday drive. One item that was exceptional was the bloody Mary- one of the better ones I have had. It had just olive and pickle for the garnish but the taste was excellent. The service was slow and the wait person wasn't knowledgeable about the menu and didn't offer to find out answers. She was friendly. Overall, it was a good experience. We look forward to returning.
