New ownership/management is ruining this Northwoods gem. This place was truly the flagship spot for a prime rib dinner. The prime rib is still the best but you'll surely pay for it. Dinner used to include potato, choice of salad, rolls, and a relish tray that was quite good. Dinner rolls have been replaced by some stale slices of french... More

The Pub & Prime is like going back to the 50's or 60's. Retro décor, bar, fixtures. We like it, but with a change a management/ownership, the future is questionable. The food has always been excellent with excellent prompt service. The Tiki Bar is a great place to have a drink while waiting for friends & family to show up.... More

If you are looking for a steak or prime rib, then this place will work. There was a generic cod on the fish fry, but not a lot else on the menu

This restaurant has been around for a long timre. The quality has always been excellent. I highly recommend the barbeque ribs and the apple vinagrette dressing. The barbeque on the ribs was homemade and very good. The place was packed which indicates an exceptional place to eat!

We've been coming to P&Prime for many years. We're part-time summer residents so we planned our last trip to include a Thurs. & Friday so we could have our last great prime rib of this year. We knew they were having staff issues and weren't open that often but it could be overlooked. So, on Thursday we drove over and... More

We visited Sat/Sun night Labor Day weekend and got 2 very different experiences. Saturday night, we arrived and were told the wait would be over and hour. When asked if we wanted to cancel, I explained we had been waiting 3 years to come back and enjoy the prime rib and weren't going to let an hour deter us from... More

Pub N' Prime has become somewhat of an annual trip for us. We live in Texas, but the prime rib here is the best we have experienced any where. If you like to dine early, get a table before 4:30pm and get a few dollars off your tab! Love to spend time on the deck during good weather enjoying a... More

Formally having a good reputation, like a bottle of fine wine uncorked and left in the sun, this restaurant has soured with time. Upon entrance, you are promptly notified that they are and have been "severely" understaffed. Although there are empty tables available, expect to wait an inordinate period of time for seating. While both the inside and outside bar... More
