The Sheeley House is a restored old boarding house. The ambiance is very nice in the upstairs restaurant especially when they have the lights dimmed. The lower bar features live music and has a cozy atmosphere. We cannot speak for the other food items as we always get the fish fry on Friday evenings. The entire entree is prepared well and the fish is very good without being greasy. The house brownie is made by the owner's wife and is also a favorite of ours. Occasionally they will have an inexperienced wait staff but normally the service is very good.

We chose the upstairs restaurant for dinner and was sorely disappointed. I chose the special pork roast - hideous .... over seasoned and it tasted like it was poached in the marinade instead of being roasted. The rice side dish was better - but so hot I think it was nuked. The veg consisted of undercooked carrots and an entire bunch of cold green onions (weird). My hubby's steak was seared well but totally devoid of any seasoning. The oven-roasted potatoes may have been cooked in the oven once... but had seen more time in the deep fryer. His veg were cold and undercooked too. We decided to head to the saloon downstairs ... and that's where we should have started and stayed! Great service, great atmosphere, and an excellent musician entertaining the patrons. The 3 points are mostly for the saloon .... which would have earned 5 if it was for the saloon alone. Sorry, but the restaurant dragged our rating down.

We really enjoyed our dinner here. It looks a little shabby on the outside, but inside the place is just charming. The downstairs tavern is cozy, and the upstairs dining room was nicely decorated. Our waiter was very friendly and the food was delicious. The prices were quite reasonable too. All in all this was a winner!

We had asked for a recommendation at our motel and this was in their book. Glad we went! The downtown is sort of fun, too. We were at the restaurant on Trivia Night in the bar and that looked fun but we went upstairs to the dining room and enjoyed a wonderful dinner. Were there for walleye night ... oh my! It was great! Good service, too. Our server told us it was her first order so we sort of looked at each other, but she did great. Wish we had saved room for dessert; our 'neighbor's' desserts looked fab. Give this place a try!
