When ever we come North and stay in the area, the TTT&E is in our plans. Great food, with a lot to choose from. The Ribs and smoked pork chops are outstanding and the fish on Fridays is mouth watering. Great beer selection and Bloody Mary too. Oh... and breakfasts are top notch as well. Going there this weekend at... More

If you order nothing else, you have to get the smoked beef barley soup. It's AMAZING! In addition, they carry local Northwoods sodas which are incredible. This place is definitely worth a drive off the main drag.

I had the fish sandwich and could not eat it all. It was whitefish that was more crusted that breaded but the fish was about dinner... More

We were looking for a different place other than pizza or fast food. And we were surprised to find this hidden treasure. The fried fish dinner was light and crispy and homemade coleslaw. The waitstaff were friendly and very accommodating. We will be back!

This was recommended to us by our hotel during our annual snowmobiling trip. It was great food, not high end by any means, but not a single person out of 8 people disliked their meal. I would 10/10 recommend to people looking for a casual, great place to eat.
