“Good Food in Lovely Setting”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

This is a truly wonderful, old Northwoods establishment. The restaurant is tucked into a woodsy location and one expects Bambi to appear at any moment. It's that sweet. Our dinner was well prepared (we ordered a fish entrée and a beef entrée) and our server was outstanding. They take reservations though the restaurant was not at all crowded when we were there mid-week. We will definitely return.

“Bad”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

Bad service. Bad management. Just bad. The owner may be the rudest person this side if NYC. There are choices one can make. Customer service and respect ought to be a priority if one is expected to choose a particular restaurant. It is lacking here.

“Rude owner”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

The rudest owner/hostess ever. Despite many empty tables they refused service for 90 minutes because their kitchen was not managed properly. Very inflexible and could care less about customer service.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

This place was crowded but I'm not sure why. The food was OK but I wouldn't encourage anyone to go, neither of us were blown away by our meals. The atmosphere was lovely. The server was...aloof...venturing close to unfriendly.

“Best Cocunut Shrimp”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

I have never had such good Bruschetta and coconut shrimp! The prime rib had excellent flavor though there was a mismatch on what was a medium temperature and/or well done. Service was fabulous, overall we loved the Blue Heron.
