Hubby and I decided to taste the local brews after coming off the car ferry. We stopped in and we were not disappointed. The bartender was warm and friendly. We will definitely stop back in when we’re in the area.

This place, in the middle of town, has a great menu. Many great options. Some local like the fresh lake perch croissaint sandwich, which was very good. Nice beer choices and the bartender was excellent, efficient and friendly.

If you take Quay Street from the dock to 8th Street, then turn left (south) onto 8th Street, its about an 8 block walk. Or call the Pub at 920-686-1166 and ask for John -- if I am not tied up, I'd be glad to pick you up... More

SPECIAL NOTICE: WE WILL BE CLOSED ON THANKSGIVING DAY. Welcome to the Courthouse Pub. Located at the corner of Eighth and Washington Sts. across from the Courthouse, we provide fine dining in a comfortable Pub environment. The Pub offers a selection of hand-crafted appetizers, luncheon salads and sandwiches and a full dinner menu. Our menus highlight gluten-free items, as well as vegetarian entrees, and sized-right entrees -- a smaller portion at a lower price. The Courthouse Pub is also a microbrewery, brewing craft beers each month for your enjoyment. We also offer some of the finest wines in Wisconsin with a Wine Program recognized since 2002 by Wine Spectator Magazine. We believe eating out should be fun and satisfying, and we try our best every day to bring that experience to our guest. We invite you to join us at Courthouse Pub today for a one-of-a kind dining experience.
