We had dinner here recently and it was good. The service was excellent. I found the menu somewhat limited and very ordinary. I ordered the special, which was a ribeye smothered in a mushroom sauce. It was quite good. The cauliflower soup was okay. Others in our party had walleye, which was decent and chicken which was okay. Prices are... More

We had a wonderful dinner with a large assortment of choices. Steaks, ribs, grilled shrimp (huge) and haddock and fried chicken. the soups are wonderful, the wings are wonderful. I would pass on the crab cakes but of course I am from Boston so a little tough to compare. GREAT drink selection, desserts, and appetizers

Stopped in for Friday Fishfry. The dining area is small, 10-12 tables around the perimeter of the bar. The bar was packed when we walked in and I was surprised that we were able to get a table right away. The Fishfry was good and reasonably priced. Homemade clam chowder was also good. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly.

We have been going here for years and have never been disappointed. Sue's specials are awesome. I personally like the salmon and my husband likes the duck w/raspberry sauce, as it''s partially de-boned. The ribs are the best in the area. And let's not forget Ted's Old Fashion's the best in the northwoods/ Love this place all year round.

Fantastic as always! My favorite restaurant in the Northwoods. Garlic or bourbon tenderloin never fails. Ahi Tuna is a rare treat.

I was surprised in many ways. 1-I found it not easy to find, 2- we got a table ( it is small and no reservations, 3- the prices (food and beverage) were higher than most local eateries of similar size and fare. The service was good and friendly and the food prepared and delivered hot. We had the local tradition... More

Shady Sue's reminded me of the supper clubs of the past. The food was excellent, hot and some of the specials were rather creative. We waited to go to dinner around 7pm on a Sunday evening but heard this place gets really busy on Friday and Saturday night. I had the fried chicken which was tender and juicy. My husband... More

While the food wasn't bad the gravy was not home made, I detest canned gravy. The Cole slaw was served in a plastic cup. The other reviews I read made this sound a bit posh, but it was just OK country cooking. And the dessert was definitely not large enough to share with a friend. I was disappointed.

We have been here other times for prime rib & grilled shrimp & have loved our meals, so thought we'd try their Friday fish fry. All three of us had the 3 pc Haddock & agreed there are many other options in this area that we much prefer for a fish fry. If we return we would possibly try the... More
