Restaurant details
Reviewed June 9, 2015

My wife had known the previous owners of Anglers for over 25 years. It was an obvious "place to go" for those that lived in the area, as well as those that make the Hayward Lakes home on weekends and during the summer. It was impossible to enter the place without seeing someone you knew, and the smiles and the jokes would begin again.
Kelsey and Jordan could not have been more perfectly suited to take over and continue many of the great traditions that you look for in a north woods pub and eatery. They are both energetic and friendly, they remember you, and they appreciate that you are stopping in. We visit Anglers all year long, with their location being perfectly placed on the super highway of excellent trails built by the locals. In the summer, the view is tremendous, and you have the easy option of eating outside on the deck.
For food, there really is only one option.....the Pizza! Our traditional favorite has been the Tackle Box, with healthy chunks ( I said chunks) of sausage, Canadian Bacon, pepperoni and ground beef on hand built thin and flaky crust. Lately, we have been mixing in the Rustica, which increases the dosage of Bell Peppers, red sauce, mushrooms and garlic to the same crust.
Some people might pull up the menu online for Anglers, and balk at the cost of the pizzas. Don't let that throw you in the least. The Anglers' pizzas are loaded, and its a constant parade of take home boxes exiting the door every night. Well worth the price. As for the beverage side of things, Jordan will serve you any beer you wish, but will also be quick to point out they have lots of Leinie photos and signed memorabilia around the place. Mixed Drinks are right in the wheelhouse of what you come to expect in the area...no scrimping.
If a person had to find a downside on any of this, it might be that its hard to get in the door on some weekends. There are several times we have pulled up, and we wished they would have expanded. On the other hand, its part of what makes Anglers what it is; our favorite area lakeside pub.

Started staying at the resort when my family would vacation in Hayward on Lac Courte Oreilles every summer back in the 60's and 70's - that was where I first learned that the price of a candy bar was going to go up from a nickle to a dime! Always a good time and great food - burgers, bbq chicken and pizzas.

Stopped in at Anglers Haven on our New Years Eve trip and loved the place instantly. Owners were super nice and it felt like we were regulars, when it was our first visit. Stopped back in a couple of more times that week and made a point to go back when we were back for another trip. Great place, great atmosphere, great people. A must stop if your in the Hayward area.

This is a lakeside resturant and bar. We usually make a yearly trip there, and sit and eat outside. Good Prices and food.

What can I say other than if you want a quality pizza with an inch thick of toppings, a few ice cold beers, and to be treated like a special guest, go to Angler's! Great food and excellent customer service. Same deal every time I go. Angler's!!!
