They have a tremendous lodge that is iconic northwoods. It could be a museum for the last 100+ years of Lakeland culture. Food is great and the building is spectacular. Highly recommend it!

Dining room is lovely with lots of antiques to keep your eyes busy while waiting for food. Also, incredible views of spider lake. Chris in the kitchen does a great job of both breakfast and the prime rib I went back to get.

Voss’s has been in business since the Cubs won the World Series(1908) and it retains its traditions and the ambience of fine dining. Not many places can claim proprietors who turned in John Dillinger to the Feds, not that that particular version of “we’re from the Government and we’re here to help” worked out any better than later versions (Dillinger...

The Voss Birchwood is very old, very nicely decorated with an excellent view. Their menu is varied and delicious. Their "Library Lounge" is a perfect place to relax in style while having a before dinner cocktail. Dining here is a true experience that shouldn't be missed.

Now really, where can you get a supper club menu like this perched on a glorious lake? We had fish, shellfish, chicken and a burger (for our daughter) and they were all great. We were there with dear friends, and although our server had difficulty speaking English, he did a reasonable job. We understand the owners like to bring in... More

This old restaurant and resort offer a romantic dining room with antique dishes and an ambience that is "up north" relaxed, yet special. Every bite of food was delicious. Server had some communication issues but overall loved this historic resort dinner club.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We are always appreciative of guests who enjoy our "old world ambience" and food. My grandparents started the resort in 1908 and we try to represent the era of the true old Wisconsin summer resort. Thank you! More

Went with a group for Sunday AM breakfast.... our table had a variety of entrees and all were excellent... Friendly staff, very nice waitress from Lithiwania did a great job... Restaurant and Lodge decorations are really unique and fun to imagine the days of their origin... Personnel there had a little problem understanding how the bills for each couple could... More

Voss' Birchwood Lodge is a fine dining experience that harks back to early 20th century accommodations. We had the occasion to boat over there two Sundays in a row for breakfasts. Wait staff generally is from eastern Europe, and although they speak English well enough, they don't always understand the importance of keeping the coffee cup filled. The food is... More

This restaurant's ambiance had probably not changed in decades, it is comfortable in a lovely old fashioned way. The food was very good, as was the service. The setting on the lake was lovely at sunset.
