“Classic Friday Night Fish Fry”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

Perfect northwoods evening! A fish fry at Chanticleer Inn, with a beautiful view of sunset over the lake. I opted for the perch, with potato pancakes, and was not disappointed. Hot, crispy, delicious meal. There was a wait, which is to be expected for any fish fry up North, but it was definitely worth it. Great food, lovely setting, and pretty interior. Thumbs up!

“Not as good as it use to be”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

The Chanticleer has a large selection of items on the menu all of which we have tried are very good. It has a very warm feeling atmosphere inside and great view being on the water.
The food is excellent quality and a lot more upscale than what you normally find in the north woods. Its is a little pricey it is also higher quality cuisine.
One item they did away with was the nice little salad bar that use to come with the evening meals.
It had great marinated muscles and other items that made meals much nicer and special.
However it still ranks as one of the top 5 places to go for a nice meal in Eagle River.

“Pleasant dining in Eagle River”
Reviewed 8 September 2012 via mobile

Dined at Chanticleer with friends. Had the Friday fish fry with broiled cod. The fish was nicely moist, tender, and flavorful. My friend had the pan fried perch a said it was delightful. Service was good and the staff was friendly. I would recommend Chanticleer to others.

“Beautiful view overlooking the river”
Reviewed 15 August 2012

We were given a very nice table overlooking the river. The service was prompt. However, the tenderloin that I ordered medium, was served on a steaming hot metal plate and continue to cook the meat and it ended up being very well done. I told the waiter about it and asked him to relay this to the kitchen. I opted to keep it because my friends were halfway through their meals. I was not offered any type of discount on this rather expensive, overdone dish ($23). My friends walleye had many bones. This restaurant was just ok and I doubt that I would return. Unfortunate because of the beautiful view.

“Having a Dining Table overlooking the Water at the Chanticlear Restaurant, Priceless”
Reviewed 10 August 2012

The Chanticlear Inn and Restaurant is just east of Eagle River, Wisconsin and is a wonderful dinning experience overlooking the channel in the Eagle River Chain of Lakes. We have never been dissapointed with the service or the outstanding food. If you are near Eagle River, Wisconsin, The Chanticleer Restaurant is worth the drive to experience one of the North Woods finest restaurants.
