I have been stopping at Little Bohemia for years now. I am very impressed with their steaks and prime rib which is featured on Saturday nights. They serve a fun and unique small appetizer tray before your meal. Unusual spreads with crackers, bread, veggies, etc. Staff is attentive. It is a must see if you haven't been there since Public...

If you eat at one place in Vilas county, eat at little bohemia. The place has a great feel and a well earned reputation ad a famous retreat for 1930's gangsters.

Someone please train waitstaff on the finer points of good boundaries, versus the trendy gallup up and interrupt that happens so often lately. Place had two other tables, so I know the young lady wasn't rushed and nervous. If she had been more respectful of the guests and our need to visit, the lackluster, greasy, overpriced pasta may have been... More

Food was GREAT - I had the Duck it's was delish! This time service was much better, actually very good, vs. our last visit (food was good that time too). This time they had some kidney bean salad on the relish tray - OMG!!!! I could have made a meal out of that, the rolls and the chicken noodle soup.

We spend our time in the bar. Nice big stone gas fireplace was going which was cozy. We got a menu for dinner and it was fairly limited in choices. I ended up just getting the french onion soup and an order of garlic bread. Everyone agreed that the food was just okay. Not bad, but nothing special. Prices kind... More

We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food at Little Bohemia, and it was very pretty, with the lake and the amazing pines around it. The restaurant brought us right back to the history it was meant to preserve. The hostess and waitress were pleasant, sandwiches were very good. We got there right at 11 which was a good thing as...

Well-known restaurant made famous by Al Capone. The bullet holes in the wall and some windows are still prominent. Rustic, picturesque setting. Good food, with a broad menu. Incredible ice cream drinks that must rank as some of the largest you'll ever see...and they're tasty!

My husband and I have not eaten dinner here since 2005. We have had multiple appetizers at the bar over the years that I've been very average and so we were reluctant to try dinner, but this time we thought why not let's give it a shot, we were disappointed but not surprised. Besides the fact that I our server... More
