Mon-Sun: 7:30 am–9 pm Happy Hour: 3–6 pm Daily
We've tailored our menu to include a little something for everyone, but our main focus is on presenting food that is wholesome, well-prepared, and, most importantly, delicious. We're not trying to reinvent the wheel here; we just want to take fresh local fish, meat, fruits and vegetables and put them together in ways that will please not only your palate but also your soul.
We also offer a daily Happy Hour from 3-6 pm with appetizer and drink specials and we are proud to showcase the talents of local musicians.
Begin with crowd-pleasing starters like our crispy, golden fried coconut-crusted walleye fingers or tender steak bites served with cajun dipping sauce. Our juicy 1/2 pound all-natural beef burgers are biggest and best in the area, don't miss the Poutine Burger for an authentic taste of the Northwoods.
Stop in for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or one of our famous Bloody Marys anytime. We can host private events from weddings to parties.
