I've been going here for twenty years or more. The service isn't consistently good but the food is. The steaks, chicken and pizzas are very good and priced similarly to local supper clubs. We really enjoy the pizza deal on Tuesdays which is a discounted priced family-size pizza with a pitcher of beer or root beer. Add the salad bar... More

It's a friendly country inn/roadhouse sort of place. After a day of mud, dust, and sand on the ATV trails it was just the right place to relax and revisit the trail experiences. I had the prime rib and it was as good or better than I've had at more expensive places. Super tender and flavorful. My wife said the... More

Family has land in northern Wisconsin near the Nimrod. I've been here every time we head up north. Never realized the history of this place. Established in the late 1800's actually shocked me. The food here is wonderful! High quality product. The salad bar reminds me of times past where places cared about their customers. Multiple fish options for the... More

The prime rib was absolutely delicious and the local seem to like their salad bar… But do not get the pork chops..... Do not order a brandy old-fashioned or Martina... and the pizza was average

We won't go there in the future, the food is inadequate now, but it used to be good - we are tired of the unfriendly waitresses. I think they should at least pretend to try to be nice. Bartenders are mostly nice.

Recommended by the locals & right on the ATV snowmobile trail. Full salad bar. I had the tenderloin steak and twice baked potato that melted in your mouth. Friendly attentive staff. This will always be one of our dinner destinations.

This restaurant in the tiny town of Athelstane is an unexpected surprise. A bar and restaurant is family friendly. It sometimes takes a while to be seated so be prepared to wait. They have a fabulous steak. You pay for it but it is worth the price. Delicious.
