If you don't enjoy yourself and laugh the whole time you are there, then you just aren't fun! This place is great! Make sure you find the car under the bar! 😂. Great fun place to hang out and have a beer...

This is like East coast West Virginia hills junk yard meets West coast grunge!! The bar is the most eclectic mixture of structures you could image. But that is essence of what makes the bar the best experience on Madeline Island and a must see...More

A unique stop to grab a drink. I don't think I have ever been to a bar like it. A must see if you are on the island.

Stop in to check it out after hearing about this place from many people. It's a hoot. Loved reading all of the different signs while having a couple of drinks. Very low key.

Stopped at Toms Burned down Cafe while on vacation. Fun venue with a hodge-podge rundown theme. When we stopped on a Saturday afternoon they had live music. My only complaint is that the current layout doesn't allow for much seating. I ordered a Bloody Mary....More
