Been going here for 45 years. Yes current family members not to friendly and yes decor is tired but the quality of the meat is still the best and keeps us coming back. We have always loved the lettuce wedge because of the homemade dressings and generous helping of blue cheese which is extra. No skimping. We also love the... More

Have heard about this restaurant for years. Very disappointing.Love the "old school" vibe, but the food does not meet up with all the rave reviews we had heard. Food was over the top salty. Save your cash.

Food quality is just o.k. It is a little pricey and the employees are friendlier to each other than the are to their customers.

Our meal was ok. Chicken tasted heavy brine or maybe old. The beef Ambrochette was delicious, tender but small and pricey. Salad is served as quartered heads of lettuce with homemade salad dressing three unique types. Baked potato was good. They changed the recipe of potatoes topping from garlic, green onion, chive, sour cream and cottage cheese blend to something... More

Yes this place is a Northwoods tradition for over 60 years run by the same folks. Yes, when you go there you know that the salad consists of a head of lettuce and nothing else, so I'm not going to gripe about that.. Here is what is right with it: plenty of parking; plenty of room....3 rooms to be exact;... More

My wife and I are always looking for good date night spots when we visit our lake house in Northern Wisconsin. We've found some reliable places and we were hoping to add the White Stag Inn to that list. Unfortunately that won't be happening. The whole experience was a letdown. From the way the hostess simply pointed to what table... More

You don't go here for the ambiance or fine dining. This is good basic supper-club style dining (read, they want you to have a drink at the bar before being seated) with great waitstaff service but slow food service (in our case). There is a fairly limited menu - steak, pork chops, cod, shrimp, etc., and each comes with a... More

We stopped to have a good Supper Club dinner. We sat at the bar to have an Old Fashion, they were not good. It was too sweet and bittery; we came to the conclusion that they made there own mix. We finished the drinks and dat down. The menu is short- all the food is char-broiled. It consisted of steaks,... More
