If you are looking for a modern log building or shiny new place this is not for you. This is the old style bar in the woods. It has character and is rough. This is the kind of place that would be in the movie The Great Outdoors Old animal mounts and old video games decorate the place. It is...

Stopped here for their fish fry after hearing so much about it. Basic average fish fry.We didn't care for the fish or the coleslaw so I would shop around for a better meal or fish fry elsewhere. Years ago they had the best fish anywhere but time changes things and it certainly did here.

We stopped at Pope's Gresham Lodge on our way to Bayfield and we were glad we did. We enjoyed the north woods atmosphere with the bears and other mounted animals in the bar/restaurant. We each had a hamburger and were very pleased. The bun was toasted and the burger included a huge tomato slice, fresh lettuce, onion and pickle. You...
