Trying to motivate my family to go anywhere for dinner on vacation before 8 or 9 PM is a constant hassle. No one can motivate. Usually this has no bearing on your choice for meals/food but in a small Wisconsin town like Elkhart Lake, your...More

We ordered takeout from here one evening to take back to The Osthoff. The food was good, but there were several items listed on the menu that were not available.

The bartender was very friendly. The place looks really cool inside. We sat in the swings for a minute. The food was average. It was very expensive for what you get. We would stop for a drink again, but definitely not for food.

Good food but plan on eating at the bar, only three tables. I will go back when it's just me and a couple friends

The food here is always amazing!! Although the everything on the menu is extremely delicious and made in-house, I would highly recommend trying the daily special as Emily can whip up some really interesting and flavorful sandwiches/salads/pastas, etc. An absolute staple though is the cornbread!

From the moment you pull up to The Brown Baer, you know you're about to have an experience. Currently the Christmas tree out front is decorated with PBR cans and the roof top porch is adorned with various tappers. The inside is an absolute collection...More

First... the menu posted on TripAdvisor is totally bogus. The bartender told me it would cost a lot of money to have it removed. Seriously? I am trying to post a phot of the REAL menu. For bar food, the selection is well above average,...More
