“Very good, but expensive”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

I think it is safe to say they have the best steaks. (I do like the Ranch's toppings a bit better). Also they had a delicious piece of bacon for an appetizer when I last visited. I never had anything quite like it. Schnitzel a la Holstien is my favorite dish on the menu. The wine list is very up-to-date.

But it's expensive. Be prepared to spend 15-20 per entree.

“One of my Northwoods favorites...great food, genuine people”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

I've had the distinct pleasure of frequenting the Chippewa Inn for nearly a decade. I highly recommend the restaurant if you need a great piece of Northwoods Americana.

The bartender/owner Tom makes a mean Southern Comfort Old Fashioned...stop at 2, you won't remember your third.

Tom's son Eric is the chef, is highly trained, and makes some wonderful sauces (Try the Jager Schnitzel). The steaks are delicious and well prepared too.

The ambience is great...sit there and listen to the banter of a crowd of Minnesotans, Wisconsinites and a highly entertaining contingent from Illinois. A melting-pot of the midwest. Enjoy the food, drink and people after a day on the course or lake...you can't go wrong.

“Interesting place, but does not deserve such high ratings.”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

The biggest disappointment was the food. When charging $13 or more for 3 medium-sized scallops to add to an entree, please do not bring butter-FLAVORED oil. Everything was overpriced. The potato pancakes were exceptional, though. My wife liked the crab cakes - they were "traditional" and batter-y as opposed to the "modern" flaky kinds that I've only had. The booze was expensive for Wisconsin, too. The waitress was kind, but hard of hearing, and not patient. When asked which dressings were made in house(which seems to be none of them) she only repeated all 7 or so again. The calamari had a dense, chicken-strip-like batter, and the escargot did not taste fresh(and drowned in pesto). The steak was HIGHLY recommended by our server(she wouldn't eat one anywhere else), but it was tough. Maybe this place is cool with locals, but tourists should save their money for other higher rated places. Yikes!
