This is an old charming log restaurant built long ago. It has been nicely maintained and has a very cozy feeling. Very north woods. The menu has many offerings from steak to seafood to lighter entrees. We love the atmosphere but think the food, as served, could be improved. Try it though. It's a nice place.

Nice restaurant. Drinks were good but the food was mediocre. The prime rib was just ok and the food was served luke warm.

We've dined here for over 30 years. First off, see Teddy at the bar and watch him make A true north woods old fashioned. Take your time, look around, enjoy the atmosphere of this place. Relax...... Try to get a table in the bar, the best seats in the house. I recommend the surf & turf, they knock off a... More

I always have the duck here as it's the best I've ever had! The ribs are very tender and good. I have not heard anyone complain about the food. The service is great and the atmosphere is a big log lodge type. I highly recommend this place! A must!!

There aren't a great many restaurants in this north woods area open off season. Even in-season don't expect gourmet dining and high end upscale restaurants. It's the north woods. Where kids say "there's NOTHING to do here, Grandma!" with a lot of pouting. Especially off season. But for very friendly, attentive service like you lived there, and for good solid... More

We read the reviews and decided to try it and loved our dinner! We had to go early as they were totally booked for the evening. We were seated immediately and our server came immediately to take our drink order. There was cheese and crackers on our table to nibble on. Our drinks were delicious, especially my old fashioned. Next... More

On a Saturday night "on" or "off" season you'll have to wait (I guess they take reservations and for a big group I would!). The hostess said about an hour wait and 55 minutes later we were sitting down. I do enjoy those huge rock glasses with a "nice pour". I had the chicken and rack of ribs. Delicious. You... More

Golden Pines has a great Northwoods atmosphere. The entire staff was very friendly. Very nice menu with a nice verity. They offer nightly specials, and the prices are in line with other establishments in the area. There were four in our party and we each ordered something different. We all enjoyed our food, however one person ordered broiled shrimp and... More
