Description: Blue Heron is a casual fine dining restaurant that caters to all walks of life. Whether you are up here for business, a laborer, a family, a couple of friends who want to have a drink, or a couple looking for a romantic dinner, you are all welcome to join us at the Blue Heron. We provide great service and delicious quality food for a reasonable price. From burgers and pizzas to steaks, seafood and pasta, we try to accommodate all tastes. We have a nice cozy atmosphere and free WiFi to boot.

This restaurant is located on the grounds on the Wild Eagle Resort on the shores of Duck Lake in Eagle River's famous Chain of Lakes. Many of the patrons are guests at this beautiful resort. Unfortunately, the restaurant itself is not on the lake, and the view is primarily of the resort'a sports area. There's a full service bar here that's on the small side, as is the restaurant itself, which holds about 15 tables. The menu is reasonably diverse with some choices like calamari, glazed salmon and scallops, a bit scarce in the Northwoods. They have an interesting northern pike fish fry on Friday's. The food here is excellent. Our wine pours were quite generous. Our server, Gail, was both friendly and efficient. This is a spot off the beaten track that's well worth a visit if you are looking for something a bit different than a burger and fries.

Thank you for your review! It is unfortunate that we are not on the lake, but we hope our atmosphere and great food and service make up for the lack of views. In the winter, we have a nice toasty fire that is great to take the chill off. In the summer months we have periodic events to make us a more entertaining destination to make it worth your while. We host painting classes, Karaoke on Tuesday nights during our prime summer weeks, and an occasional special event, like comedy club, themed parties and we even have an Elvis impersonator coming the end of August. Thanks again, and we hope to see you soon.

A very warm and cozy and comfortable restaurant. Our server was Scott who was friendly and truly understands how to provide great customer service. We ordered the Chicken Alfredo with fresh mushrooms that was probably the bestI have ever tasted. We also ordered the Heron (on Scott's recommendation) and it was Awesome. We had our after dinner coffee by the fire, I recommend the Kringle coffee. We ordered our dessert to go...the Blueberry Cobbler cheesecake...WOW it was good!

We will be back!

Fun history of being a boys camp years ago. The restaurant is the old "chow hall" and gives you a comfortable feeling. The picky steak eaters were truly impressed. Each steak was yummy and done perfectly. The Walleye almost appeared to be pan fried and was done perfectly. Scallops were done perfectly and were for the lighter appetite. Sides were great and we were all so happy that we chose this pearl of Eagle River!!! The server was a giggle and spot on for service...can't remember herr name but he had long black hair. She is awesome!

Fairly quiet weeknight, our group of four enjoyed everything in this Northwoods restaurant. We'll definitely go back.
