We decided to meet friends on a Saturday evening. There was a special for the evening of coconut walleye. I have to say it is some of the best fish I have had in a very long time. But the restaurant needs to be commended on the service offered as well. There was a mix up with my order, and... More

We've had several dinners here and have been awed more and more each time! On our past visit we learned that all of the dressings and sauces are created from scratch! It was evident in each dish. From homemade Caesar dressing to Alfredo sauce that was out of this world to a teriyaki salmon - each dish was mouth watering!... More

We stayed at the Aberdeen cabins. We checked in on Friday but didn't visited this gem until Saturday for lunch. Larry the owner greeted us and took us to our table. He was very hospitable and informative. We asked for a really margarita and Larry suggested that Blake was the expert in that area and he told the truth. They... More

We enjoy being a place that you want to re-visit again and again as our goal is to provide a real "experience" for our guests to cherish. We look forward to your next Northwoods adventure and thank you for sharing... More

My son and I stopped in for dinner while driving back home after a day of downhill skiing in the U.P., and enjoyed our meals very much. My son had the "world famous fish fry" that's served every day of the week. He got 2 sizable hunks of fish that he said were as good as any fish fry he's... More

Have been to the restaurant a few times and thoroughly enjoyed each dish we had. The prime rib is large and delicious, I also like the cheese potion. My favorite though is "the shrimp boat" special! In fact heading there tomorrow with friends to show them how great it is! Keep up the great work Aberdeen!

We used to be regular customers of Aberdeen Restaurant and Bar when it was under the previous owner and needless to say, were less than impressed. Thru the years, we kind of gave up on the place until our Christmas vacation and boy are we glad we gave it another shot! Larry the owner (not the owner that we previously... More
