Description: Nestled in the heart of Northern Wisconsin’s lake country, the Minocqua Brewing Company is housed in an historic landmark building located on the island city’s north shore. Built in 1927 as a Masonic Temple, the building was transformed into a micro brewery and restaurant seventy years later. The brewery houses a seven and a half barrel system producing seven kinds of ales and lagers. The bar features a fine selection of wines, and cocktails, along with the skillfully crafted signature beer selections. The brewery's restaurant offers an interesting assortment of appetizers, sandwiches, soups, and salads with a gourmet twist.

This Brewery was not busy for dinner on a Wed. Night, but getting our food was very slow. There is a sign when you come inside that says "We are Not Fast Food" so true !
The service was fine & the food good. There is a rustic charm in the decor.

I have been here several times and have been disappointed only once with our meals. They are a little pricy for what it is, but the food is generally good. The craft beers they make are also pretty good. Their cheese soup is outstanding. On our most recent visit, I too was a little disappointed with the perch. For fish that is supposed to be fresh, I didn't think it was very good. Almost any fish fry in the Northwoods would be significantly better. However, this has been our only dinner that was a disappointment.

Minocqua Brewing menu seems to be mainly sandwiches. Fine for lunch, but expected more for dinner. None of the "specials" were appealing either. It was a chilly night and ordered HOT chocolate. Came out as luke warm at best. Food isn't anything to write home about--average at best. Restaurant is nice and overlooks the water. They could do so much more. Probably will not be back--go to Thirsty Whale!

We stopped at the Minocqua Brewing Company on a Sunday evening while out in our boat on Lake Minocqua. If you're on the lake, you need to cross under the Bear Skin Trail bridge and head to the bay. The restaurant will be on your right. I believe there are three or four places to tie a boat. Since we entered from the boat slip, we had to walk through the restaurant (in our swimsuits) to get to the hostess stand for seating. She then took us back outside to the garden area to be seated. Our waitress was friendly and got our drinks right away. My husband tried one of their amber beers and enjoyed it. There were five in our group, including one child. He ordered off the kids menu which included typical choices like chicken fingers, french fries, etc.

The menu isn't huge. It includes a lot of sandwiches, burgers, and appetizers--typical food that you'd find at a brew pub. Three of us had the same sandwich--the pulled pork with gouda. It was good. I ordered the sweet potato fries (costs extra) and they were pretty delicious. My husband had the fried fish and said it was good too. The food isn't exceptional, but it's decent and we appreciate having a place we can boat to. I would eat there again without hesitation.

its a different place from the rest, when you eat there you feel you are where the locals go and you can have a taste of the North. There is a great variety of beers! and the waitresses are polite and nice young girls
