Located next to the Hillside Motel, this restaurant and lounge has a laid back retro atmosphere, good food, good staff and a place to unwind after a day on the River or whatever activity you endured during the ay.

It is what it is, a local eatery. Nothing fancy. I went on a Friday night. Locals were drinking in the bar (some rather loud convos). The dining area was full of people ( lots of senior citizens!) so I sat in the bar area...More

Welcome retreat after a long day of driving in very hot weather. Waitress experienced. She set a big pitcher of iced water on the table and right away I knew the meal would be enjoyable.

Food and service pretty good and prices reasonable. Obviously local drunks like it as bc a hangout. Management obviously does not care about the loud obnoxious behavior. Probably one on the drunks. Parking pretty limited.

Bar/restaurant is obviously a local hangout. Restaurant serves good, inexpensive food. Walleye previously frozen, which made it less tasty than expected. Service was good. Do not order wine - stick to beer or call drinks.
