Have lived in Minocqua for over 30 years. Polecat used to have great food. However, it’s really gone downhill... the food isn’t half as good as it used to be!! Potato pancakes were obviously from Sysco Foods, as was the chicken kiev. The portions were...More

We arrived in Minocqua at dinner time on a Friday night in Wisconsin. Anyone from WI, or is a frequent visitor, will know that resort towns have lots of supper clubs and lots and lots of bars. I immediately went to TripAdvisor to find a...More

This restaurant is very classic. The staff is kindness. I ordered the tender steak about $25.it's okay. 本当にローカルで昔ながらのお店と言う感じがするお店でした。店員さんたちは皆親切で接しやすかったです。 テンダーロインステーキ約$25とビール2杯ハウスワイン一杯で税込$42でしま。 ハウスワインはたくさん注いでくれて大満足でした!

Happened in on our downtown walk in Minocqua, what a pleasant surprise. Typical pricing for the area. Good portions and flavors are on point. You can "feel the love" in the food. These are people that care.

This little gem hidden right downtown Minocqua provides a relaxing tasty experience. The service was excellent. The menu had a good variety. Prices on rhe high side, but this was expected for being right downtown. "Old time" supper club feel. I would go back.

Great old fashioned, maybe one of the best. Really good French Onion soup, yummy cheese curds and try the Philly Cheese Steak sandwich. Friendly service in a charming place.

Every trip to Minocqua, I go here for their White House open-face sandwich. It's indescribably good as is everything else. Their menu is broad with items that are their own specialties, and usual selections that you would expect. The atmosphere is rustic but classy. Love...More
