The food is amazing. The purple cabbage salad and bread before the meal are unbelievable. Take the Salad home at the end of your meal and they'll also give you more bread. Steal chunks are my favorite. You can split any plate for $10 extra....More

Great service, fun and different atmosphere. Have the cheese bread and salads. Food is average and most dishes are large enough to share.

A fun place with funky decor. We've eaten at various Northwoods restaurants for over 50 years. They have upgraded their steaks (and prices). Quality much improved, and rumor has it they'll add a tomahawk rib eye this winter. Regulars go for the two salads, red...More

Love everything from the peanuts where you throw the shells on the floor, to the cheese bread (have to stop myself from eating more than two pieces) to the salads, to the cheese butter on the potato, to whatever the main dish is! A little...More
