“excellent food and a beautiful decor”
Reviewed 8 September 2010

We dined around 9pm on a Sat. with 2 kids. The staff was friendly and efficient. The salads were very fresh and the beef barley soup was delicious. My husband ordered prime rib that was 2 inches thick and done a perfect medium rare. I had broiled scallops, some of the largest I've seen and well seasoned. Our 12 year old had BBQ ribs, a little chewy but with a good sauce. The 4 yr old liked them too. All the massive dark wooden booths and bar gave the feel of dining in a bygone era. We had a wonderful dining experience. It was our first time there, but it certainly won't be our last.

“Always good!”
Reviewed 22 August 2007

As a family tradition, we always kick off our Northwoods vacation with lunch at the Polecat & Lace. This year did not disappoint. We had lunch there on Saturday, August 11, 2007. Our party consisted of 4 adults, no children.

This place hasn't changed in the over 20 years that we've vacationed in the Minocqua area (and that's not a bad thing!). We started our lunch off with beer (in the bottle - they don't have beer on tap). Two in our party had "The Ultimate" - a fried boneless chicken breast on an English muffin, topped with cheese, tomato and Hollandaise sauce, one had the Chili Mac, and one had their burger. All the sandwiches come with fries, cole slaw and a pickle.

Everything was very tasty and fresh & hot. Service was prompt and friendly. We will be back again next year!

Thank Maseca
