Had lunch here a couple times & they have a really good cold wild rice salad. Sandwiches are interesting & delicious as well, not your run of the mill grilled chicken or burger place. Sit outside when the weather is nice & enjoy the lake.

This restaurant has been on our list of places we needed to eat at. We have spoken with many people and they had a lot of positive things to say about it. It's a little on the expensive side. The quality of the food, the flavoring, and the presentation was excellent. I ordered a steak salad. The meat quality was... More

Stopped by this joint for a lunch while in town getting a bicycle repair. Had a wonderful lunch on the patio overlooking the river. A BLTG which adds the wonderful touch of a goat cheese to cherry smoked bacon. I'll be back!

The quality of the food is second to none, worth the stop, and a bit of a surprise. The lunch time sandwiches we had were first rate but priced at the top end of what one would expect or possibly a bit over the top. I ordered the Walleye Sandwich on Focaccia bread which came with hand cut fries and... More

Many of the entrees looked delicious, but we weren't up for a full meal and had salads, etc. and the kids meals (full disclosure - I ended up eating a couple of my son's chicken tenders and they were AWESOME) and a nice glass of wine. Our waitress gave a small loaf of bread to the kids to feed to... More

We went for lunch at this restaurant with adults and kids. I may have overlooked it, but I didn't realize until we arrived that the restaurant is attached or at least directly next door to the lumberjack show. This would have helped our decision initially had we known because we planned to go to the show after lunch and weren't... More

Called in here as we decided not to eat at our accommodation restaurant. We had noticed that most good restaurants in the Hayward area are similalry priced. The place is very 'log cabin' and quite rustic, very charming feel. Quickly shown to a riverside table and given a menu, water was brought to our table while we made our decisions.... More

We asked the couple at the motel where they recommended for dinner and they directed us here: thank you folks at Riverview Motel!! Open air bar; lights, log cabin, ice-cream shop, dining on a deck next to the Namakagon River(the Lake Hayward Part) and fantastic food. WE had been riding bike all day and were a little tired so we... More
