Food is excellent. Our favorite casual restaurant. Can't beat their fresh and delicious home made food, fast and friendly service. We've been eating here for the past 7 years, always delicious and cooked to perfection. The "Roost" is a north woods treasure.

We visit the Rustic Roost regularly for Breakfast meetings. The staff is friendly and helpful and the food is good standard American Cafe fair. We enjoy the comfortable atmosphere and warm greeting of the folks at the Rustic.

Stopped for breakfast on a snowmobile trip drop upper up. Excellent breakfast experience, everything tasted great. Ask so the large warm cinnamon roll was a nice touch. We will stop again.

Stopped for Breakfast this Sunday. The place is very clean. Service was very friendly and efficient. We had their specials the strawberry waffle and Chicken Fried Steak and eggs. The waffle was great and large amount of strawberries. The Chicken Fried steak and eggs is a big breakfast. It was also very good.

Looked like a great local restaurant with a woodsy décor and it was. We enjoyed our lunch there: the food was really good. The service was great. And the prices were reasonable.

I admit; the rest of us had a cod platter with two huge pieces of cod, fries, sauerkraut and a dinner roll at 11:00 a.m. The service was quick and... More
