The atmosphere is so serene you will feel like you are in the middle of a forest with a personal chef - the service is spot-on, quick, but they leave you alone if you want to hang around after your meal, sit by the fire or just talk. The inside is rustic, clean, and the tables are far enough apart... More

On a recent girls' spa getaway to Kohler, we took the recommendation of another friend to try River Wildlife, and it was fabulous. The quaint log lodge (and the friendly staff) provided a wonderful atmosphere for a delicious lunch. In fact, we enjoyed the ambiance and food so much that we went back on our second day, too. From the... More

My wife and I came up to Kohler for a quick get away from Chicago. We have been here several times and decided to try River Wildlife. The shuttle took us from the American Club to this rustic cabin in the woods. Walking in you are surrounded by the cozy feeling of a winter retreat. The staff greet you like... More

By far the best place we tried in Kohler. Cozy up to warm fire before dinner. Small selection of excellently prepared foods. All come with a broth or cream based soup and a house or seasonal salad. I had a lentil soup with sausage that warmed me from head to toe! Duck for dinner had a crispy crust with moist... More

Food is always excellent! It's fresh and local and always dependable. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The setting in the woods is very romantic--our first date was at River Wildlife and we also became engaged there!

While staying at the American Club, my husband and I decided to try River Wildlife so we made reservations and purchased the Wildlife passes to allow us entry to River Wildlife Lodge.

We were on a segway tour of Kohler (great way to see the area) and stopped in here. Didn't eat but the lodge is very beautiful. Had a talk about the wildlife in the area. Mr. Kohler saw the lodge in Montana and liked it so much it had it moved (piece by piece) to his property. Guess all you... More
