They do a nice job on fish and steaks and salads. Pretty broad menu. Friendly atmosphere. Save room for their pies. They are delish.

We stopped in for breakfast on a Sunday morning. We were promptly shown to our booth, but our waiter basically ignored us until the hostess said something to him. My wife had Eggs Benedict and I had the Ham and Egg Scramble. Both were good but nothing special. Friends said we need to go back to the Pub for dinner... More

when we arrived inside, it looked just like a restaurant that i visit in Glenview, Illinois. Same dark walls and same lighting. They were very busy as it was a friday night, and they have their fish fry. I had the sourdough Chicken sandwhich and it was very good. I would recommend that if you are in the rhinelander area...

I could have given it a excellent but our waitress acted as if it was a bother to have to serve us. We normally go on weekdays and have one best waitress you can ever have. The breakfasts were very good though. I don't think it is asking to much for them do there job, if you don't like it... More

The options in Rhinelander are limited. We chose the Rhinelander Inn and Pub because their menu had a lot of attractive choices. Unfortunately the execution didn't live up to promise. We each ordered a fish dish. The salads were fine, but when the main courses came the fish, in both cases, was over cooked. We both had wild rice, and... More

Every time we are in Rhinelander we go to The Pub. They have great drinks and really good food. The steaks are excellent. I like trying the many different specials they have, but my husband always gets the prime rib.

Noisy, bad service, average to poor food. A place we will clearly avoid in the future. The noise level in this place was louder than a high school cafeteria on homecoming day. We tried to start our meal with calamari, but it was gooey and inedible. The waitress was terribly inattentive, and while we sat unattended, I would get our... More

Well I agree with earlier comments that the quality of the food has diminished, I still think that breakfast is pretty darn good! The grass could be of higher quality. I also stopped in recently with my sister and we had bloody Mary's, served with chasers of course , after all this is Wisconsin, and the bloody Mary's or fantastic!... More

Somehow the Pub's food has fallen down in taste and preparation. Whether a new cooks or what. We go once a month w/friends for a breakfast and last 3 times, every other breakfast had something wrong, one even had a raw egg when served in the Eggs Benedict, and this is a specialty of theirs. This is usually a pretty... More
