Theresa, owner and bar tender, is very friendly and timely with orders. The pizza is absolutely delicious. Have been here many times. The atmosphere is pretty typical as far a bars go, but clean, neat and orderly.

If your on Hwy 51 you dont have a excuse to stop. We love this place so much, our whole family does. Have a bite to eat, or at least a adult beverage (responsibly) the knotty pine is so inviting and the burgers are so yummy.

Rustic has a long history and is a perfect place to bring the family for lunch or dinner. The bar is lively and the food is good.

Have eaten at the Rustic for years while on vacation in Manitowish Waters. Homey atmosphere, friendly staff, good food. Don't worry about how you are dressed, just go and enjoy

Teresa, the owner, was great behind the bar. Always making sure you were doing k. Pizza was thick w cheese and meat. Sorry that she is going to sell but she can't get steady help.

Great pizza. Waitress was nice but was the only one working the dining room. Bartendress not very friendly. No welcome from her at all. We seated ourselves and got our own menus. The pizza was great though so we will come back.

We stopped here after a long drive, and my friend recommended the pizza. I ordered the veggie pizza, and it was delicious. It had lots of vegetables and thin crust, and was a great handmade pizza. The portions were huge, and I ordered a 12 inch, and should have ordered a 10, and would still have some to take home.

This is a great little spot to stop at for a drink and a snack. I had the haystack onions and they were good. There is a small game room in the back and the bartender was very attentive. I'd definitely go back here if I was traveling through, very clean!

We arrived for lunch opened at one. The bartender was also waitress, poor thing was working so hard lots of people felt bad for her. Need more staff. We had two burgers, one soda, haystack onion rings as appetizer they were burned. They charged us extra for fries and were never told that. My husband had the blue cheese burger... More
