We stopped here for drinks before heading out to dinner that evening at Blu, a high end restaurant nearby. I ordered wine and my husband perused the craft beers which were written on the wall over the bar. The menu seemed ordinary, nothing special jumped...More

Bring a jacket. Very cold inside with a very old air condition blowing directly on tables. Would have prefer sitting outside as it would have been warmer but the outside tables weren’t open on the particular day we went (not sure why as it was...More

All of it was good. The fried cheese curd was amazing. The cheese plate with the horseradish cheese and amazing smoked cheddar. Oh the smoked trout was delicious! ❤️

My expectations were low, but the food here was really good. The service was ok, but I had a very large party, so I can't blame the waitress for having a lot of customers. They don't take cash, but they have an ATM nearby.

Ordered perch sandwich and rueben - both terrific. They make their own mustard - which can be purchased on site. Very tasty sweet dijon type. Also ordered tater tots. Service and food both excellent.

We had dinner at Art's which clearly very popular with the locals as it was the only restaurant we went too that was really busy (it was off-season). The staff was very friendly and was making sure that everyone knew that they didn't take credit...More
