“Outstanding food and service”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Whenever I'm in the Northwoods Golden Pines is always on our dinner list. Thursday is German night. The dishes are wonderful. The steaks are always done right and the staff is great! Great place for special occasions or just a good dinner.

“Germany in the Northwoods”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We visited the Golden Pines restaurant in St. Germain to sample their Thursday night German specialties. I had a pork shank with spaetzel and red cabbage, while my wife went with the beef rouladen. Both were excellent and the portions were quite generous. Dinners were all inclusive and included soup or salad, main entrée and choice of 2 sides for about $15. Arriving early at 5:30, we had no trouble being seated, but 30' later, after innumerable cars had turned into the parking lot from Hwy 70, prior reservations were needed to get in. Looks like reservations would be wise to have during prime time The reputation of Golden Pines has evidently spread far and wide, especially German night. We heard the gentleman at the next table tell his waitress he had driven in from Tomah just to experience it. Service was very prompt and friendly. Our waitress even found a matching thigh bone from a discarded pork shank in the kitchen to match mine, so each of our two dogs could share at least part of our meal when we got home. Our husky Lucy, whose picture is my Avatar to the upper left of this review, is proud to give Golden Pines "5 Woofs."

“German night on Thursdays”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

When visiting for a week, we make a point of going to Golden Pines for the Thursday evening German special. Love the pork schnitzel, red cabbage and spaetzel. Dinners include bread/cheese spread, salad/soup. 15 dollars for these entrees seemed very reasonable.

We arrived early - before 5- and had very prompt service. The atmosphere is "log cabin" charming.

“WOW”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This place is crowded on the weekends so make a reservation.
It is crowded because it is good. I was with 10 other people who ordered a variety of different things and all of us were in love with out dinner. I had the almond crusted chicken and it was unbelievably good.
The atmosphere is great too fits in beautifully in the Northwoods of St German Wi.

When in the North Woods, you must try a supper club. This place was wonderful. Food was good, atmosphere was nice and service was great.
