We had a great time down there, the place is right on the lake. You can watch people launch boats in a really super tight boat ramp. That’s a lot of fun if the people aren’t good with trailers. We watched the water skiing teams practice. We had a couple drinks and it started to rain so we hung out a little bit longer and had some food and it was all good. Also it’s within walking distance of downtown Minocqua which is a great place to walk around and check out.

Blackened fish alone would bring be back. Add the unique setting, easy access, great menu variety and friendly service you can’t go wrong.

We were driving through on our way up north and we stopped for a late dinner after 8pm. We were still sat right away and the waitress was quick! It was a good pub menu, we ordered cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches, and coconut shrimp. Fries were great even though they cost extra! I bet the restaurant is even more fun in the summer because of the water front!
