The best food between Antigo and Rhinelander. Not cheap, but always very good. One of only a handful of really good places to eat in Langlade and Oneida Counties. The wait can be a bit long but, once seated, service is good. The food is very good. The best northwoods fish fry. Very good steaks (perhaos a bit more rare... More

We have friends who live on Upper Post Lake near Elcho WI. A visit with them would mot be complete without a dinner at Wolffs. Dale, the bartender, mixes a great cocktail and is very welcoming. The food has been excellent every single time, no matter what we order. Everything is homemade, including the salad dressings. This time we had... More

Off HWY 45 on CTY Road K east of Elcho is a great supper club. I'm sure the locals and the summer people of this area know this place but it's with the drive for their dinners. Drove 45 minutes for a great steak dinner here on a Thursday evening, and was not disappointed. They also serve a great cocktail... More

I always make it a point to eat here when in the area. The food and service were excellent as always. The salad was better than I remember, and there were actual dinner rolls in the bread basket this time, so if anything the place has improved.

Small place with excellent food! Prime rib is the best in the area. Their Friday fish is my favorite. I've never had a bad meal there! You need to enter thru the bar which isn't the best with kids but it is a clean, family friendly place.

I love this place. The french onion soup is to die for. If they would sell it by the quart, I'd buy it. The food is always good - from shrimp to steaks to burgers. It's a very busy place. Be prepared to wait. The bar area and dining room are small. Bartender and wait staff are pleasant and know... More
