One of our local go-to places for burgers, pizza, and, on Fridays, excellent fish platters! (The walleye is tops but I like the spicy Cajun catfish). Pleasant atmosphere and decor. Very lively crowd (noisy but happy noise), great for kids. Friendly staff. Full bar with several WI beers on tap. We go here for burgers - my fav is the... More

Will never return for Sunday Prime Rib. Ordered 2 prime rib meals both medium. Waitress came to table with one meal and an extra plate. It took forever to get 2nd meal. Then, we needed the extra plate for all the fat! Waitress aware we were very dissatisfied.

We have been there several times over the years. Its always hopping and open year round. At this time their specials are, Fish Fry on Friday, Brisket on Saturday, Prime Rib on Sundays & Ribs on Wednesday. It is a busy place and they do not take reservations so there can be a wait time. It is loud & packed... More

We decided we wanted pizza and wanted to try something local. After reading the reviews for the WheelHouse we decided to try it. We didn't get to the restaurant until after 7:00 pm - we figured it wouldn't be too busy by then. Wrong - it was packed! The good news - these folks know how to run a restaurant... More

The WheelHouse is a very popular restaurant with various events many summer weekends. Their pizza is very good. Other menu items, however, are a bit more ordinary. Many summer weekends it's hard to even find a parking space near the restaurant. While the Wheel house does have good pizza, it's a restaurant I wouldn't travel more than a few miles... More

We have gone here three times. Once for the pizza buffet (by accident, we just happened to find the place and it was on that night). Pizza was ok, it's actually better on buffet night - which is hard to believe! We also went for a Friday Fish fry - but they don't have one! they do not fry fish... More

I usually try and hit this place at least 3 or 4 times during the summer after mountain biking at Hartman Creek. Great outdoor patio and Central Waters beers on tap. The last couple times I've been here (Fridays both times) I ordered something different. Once I had the roast beef sandwich and the other the pan fried walleye. Both... More

This was our second visit. Ate there last year around same time. Don't think we will go back. Spacious restaurant, friendly and attentive servers. Very noisey. Fish fry Friday, all fish are pan fried, potatoes are broasted. 14.95 for fish fry. Pizza, sandwiches, burgers and pasta offered. Other night specials offered. Across the parking lot is SHOPS ICE CREAM PARLOR.
