“Best Bloody Mary's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

When an establishment has a sign out claiming "The Best Bloody Marys" it can get your hopes up if you like them to begin with. This establishment certainly does not disappoint. In addition to being waited on by the owner himself, they have an excellent little patio overlooking Big Lake, just outside of town. They also have wonderful horseshoe courts, volleyball area and plenty of good old Wisconsin hospitality. The Bloody Marys were stacked high with "groceries" seventeen items piled up on top. Most places try to displace as much drink as possible with the garnishes, but not here! This drink was like having a great buffet of pickled and spicy items like pepper jack cheese, brussel sprout, asparagus spear, pickle wedge, olives, both black and green, jalapenos, large carrot stick, an entire beef stick, green bean, onion, mushroom, and about five more things I'm just not remembering right now. Our whole family was extremely happy with the place and the service was exemplary.

“Roadside spot delivers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Sankey's serves on of the best Bloody Mary's I have ever had. It comes with an assortment of vegetables that nearly qualify as an appetizer. The Reuben on marbled rye was outstanding. This place is one of two must stop restaurants in Three Lakes. Don't miss it!

“Just okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

The service was great, but the food was just okay. Very pricey for sandwiches. The place is just a tavern with a side room with a few pub tables. They seem to cater to the snowmobiling crowd. It was extremely cold in the place. They must assume that everyone is going to keep their winter gear on while dining.

I would not recommend this place to anyone.

“Consistantly the best food in the northwoods.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

I'm glad Sankeys is finally listed on Trip Advisor. As stated in the title, this is by far, the most consistantly good restaurant in the northwoods. There are so many good sandwiches, it is hard to pick, but I always have to order the cranberry steak wrap at least once while I am up there. The regular steak wrap is also delicious. Randy takes pride in the quality of his meats. One time,the chicken wings were 'smaller' than he usually had and he was disappointed with the supplier and ended up giving us them for free. He cares about his place and customers. The sweet potato fries are the best I've had anywhere.
There is a bar that faces the lake with hummingbird feeders. Very pretty view. You can sit outside if the weather is nice.
If you want to get 'railed' and get a free tshirt...all you have to do is have a pint of 13 beers on tap.

Sankey's is known for their fabulous bloody mary's. The drink itself is the best mix I've ever had, but the drink is also accompanied by 15 ingredients which has the 'regulars' but also includes pickled asparagus and bean spears, beet, mini corn, pearl onion, pepper jack cheese, sausage stick...anyways- when we order the bloody mary's we usually don't have room for the sandwich and only order fried cheese curds or chicken wings to split as the drink is like a salad!

Sankey's is just South of town and well worth the drive.
