Drove up from the Chicago area to visit with family... My sister suggested we go to Kimball Inn for her birthday and what a great surprise. 10 of us ate everything from fried shrimp, flat iron steak, pasta, salmon, broiled shrimp, even a burger. Everything was excellent, portions were HUGE and the service was great. We arrived early, about 5:30ish... More

Finally a quality supper club in the Hurley/Ironwood area. Specials change daily and they all look so good it's hard to know what to choose. Portions are plentiful. You shouldn't leave hungry. Service was great.

Found this little gem by happenstance, and I will definitely make it a point to eat here again if I'm in the area. I had Cordon Chicken, and it was delicious. The restaurant is small, and we waited about 15 minutes, but it was well worth it.

Our Hotel recommend this place since we were new to the area. The place looks rustic on the outside but is fabulous on the inside. The Food and Service was one of the best there is. We will surely be going back.

About once or twice a year I travel to Hurley, and my favorite restaurant to eat at when visiting is the Kimball Inn, this time 2 in my party had the broiled garlic shrimp, huge portions probably close to a pound of my guess size 15/20 shrimp. Nicely cooked. The sides are all wonderful, with my favorite being the very... More

Great food and drinks. Varied menu and daily specials. Known for their smoked meats but great steaks, and Italian cuisine.

Stopped here the first night of road trip from MI to MT. Great whitefish dinner - seemed a bit overpriced. We will stop here again.

This place is a gem in the woods of Northern Wisconsin. The portions are big too! Their specials are to die for. We had the Friday fish fry with fresh, fresh lake Perch. Battered lightly to perfection. You get 3, yes 3 pork chops 1 inch thick, or their cut off the bone brandy/maple ham is unreal. You can not... More

The beef brisket was so delicious. Garlic mashed potatoes the best ever. Great drinks and very friendly service. House salad was the best.
