We have been here a few times and are never disappointed. The rooms are clean and while not fancy, nice and reasonably priced. The owners run a tight ship and make sure that you can park your trailer easily. Dinner is the best around- salad bar and rolls included. The Prime Rib is not to be missed, go for the... More

Liked the pulled pork sandwich and fries and burger my hubby had. Salad bar was basic, but fresh and delicious. Server was friendly and service was good especially since the dining room was pretty full.

This establishment is off the beaten path like so many Upper... More

Some friends and I stopped by here for a quick bite to eat when we were out on our sleds and it was a very nice place. It was very common but very typical of the Northwoods. We had a great time and if we are going that way again, we would certainly visit and eat again.

Recently while taking an anniversary vacation; fall foliage and waterfall tour, my husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Root Cellar for three nights. Right away we were impressed with the "homey" atmosphere. The room was VERY clean and updated. While I had been wishing for a bathtub to enjoy a long soak after our long day... More
