We enjoy a good tenderloin or prime rib when we dine out: Shady Sue's is by far the best! We travel and hour and a half round trip just to eat there! Be sure to make reservations as they do get very busy. My husband is a rather large guy, so for him to leave a restaurant full is quite amazing. Great salads and soups, potatoes cooked to perfection, and a bartender who REALLY knows what he is doing! The best apple martini I've ever had!

On a tip from Sheraton Madison desk clerk, stopped here on way north for dinner pan-fried walleye. Nice sized portion, lightly pan-fried, fairly priced. Ordered the twice-baked potato (a rare item in a restaurant). Their drink menu has Golden Cadillacs and Pink Squirrels...I used to make those many years ago. Blast from the past. Locals place. Friendly, quick service. Would return.

My husband's family has been frequenting this restaurant-then known as South 17-since the 1940s. It is a typical supper club set-up: horseshoe bar surrounded by about eight tables. In the summer you can dine in the Sugar Shack, a screened in gazebo a few steps from the restaurant. The chef is the owner, so you can count on excellent pan-fried walleye, steaks and shrimp every time. Once in a while Sue has coconut shrimp on the specials board and it is great! When she has "fresh-never frozen" salmon I always order that-some of the best I've had. Ted at the bar is justifiably famous for his generous Old Fashioneds--the wine list isn't bad, either. If you are looking for good food and cocktails in a supper-club-from-days-gone-by atmosphere, head to Shady Sue's.

Wonderful small restaurant. Bartender knows how to make a good drink. But the real treat...

Roasted garlic filled tenderloin steak with twice baked potatoes. Wonderful meal in an excellent north woods restaurant.
