The Silver Birch harkens back to the traditional supper clubs of my youth, seldom seen in more modern establishments.
Sit at the bar for a cocktail while you wait for a table and enjoy the view of the lake.
We arrived on a Saturday night at 7 (no reservations made) and waited just 30 minutes for a table. Our hostess, a very flamboyant woman dressed in a red hat and jacket, led us to our table. The interior of the dining room was covered with knotty pine and tasteful decorations. Several groups were seated and we heard at least 3 happy birthday songs provided by the staff.
Our meal included one of the most interesting and tasty side salads I have ever seen. Lots of assorted veggies with a deviled egg and green onion topped with a blue-cheese dressing - very tasty! We both opted for the French onion soup that was very good and had the cheese at the bottom of the bowl rather than floating on top. Interesting!
My wife had a chicken Alfredo and I had the ribs. Both were very good. The ribs had a sauce that was a bit sour, for my taste but still was good.
If you are in the Tomahawk area stop by and give this place a try.
You will not be disappointed.
