Eddie B's was ok - they just recently (summer of 2016) raised their prices - the food is ok at best but not worth what they are charging. They run specials that come in several different ways - hit and miss for me which was the common opinion of the group as well. Nice restaurant and concept - they just... More

My husband and I ate dinner at the White Spruce with friends. We all picked different things to eat and all were pleased with our choices. My panfried walleye was great, along with the rice pilaf, salad and veggies. The White Spruce has a wide array of choices on the menu and a full bar. Service was good and our... More

The White Spruce is located in the oldest building in Eagle River, which makes dining there a historical event in itself! Eddie B, the owner is the nicest fellow, who always is ready with a hug and a smile. We've gotten to know the same servers and bar tenders over the years, and they remember us too! The menu is...

Service was very good and the place is a nice northwoods supper club. We got there rather late about 8:30 and were seated almost right away. Food was good, but I was expecting better for an up north fish fry. My cod platter was pretty good. My husband had the fishermans platter-light on the perch and bluegill-heavy on smelt.

We had a drink at the bar and the bartender wasn't that great-we thought his attitude was a little arrogant. We wanted ribs and were told they were out from the weekend and this was on Tuesday. Nothing else really caught our interest in the menu and it was pricey so we had a drink and left. It's like a... More

Have seen this place but our first visit this time was a great surprise. Nice menu for sure and very good food. Our waitress was so nice and efficient. My husband is a prime rib freak but not so much for" smoked" meat but really enjoyed the" lightly" smoking on his meat. I must say that they DO make a... More

I grew up in Eagle River and the White Spruce has been around since I was a kid -- so of course I had to check it out when I was back in my old hometown, visiting! There have been a couple of owners since my childhood and the menu has greatly expanded from what I remembered -- but the... More

Can't say one negative thing about this north woods restaurant. From the moment we were seated to the time we left everything was outstanding. Friendly staff, excellent food, reasonable prices and the best darn grasshopper I've had in more than 30 years to top it all off. Beautiful rustic atmosphere with additional outdoor seating overlooking the water. All good!
