I loved this restaurant. I wish someone would publish a cookbook of all the german dishes from the old stag. I have many german cookbooks but never one matched the home flavors of the german favorites offered at the old Stag. The recipes have to...More

Old Stag has closed and did not reopen this summer. I believe that owners moved away with no plans to return. The closing has left a gap in restaurants between Eagle River and Three Lakes.

We were spending the weekend in Eagle River in July with unseasonably cold rainy weather. We were unable to go out on the boat, horseback ride, go-kart, mini golf - too cold and wet. The only thing we could do that we planned was go...More

We have tried all the resturants in Three Lakes and Eagle River and the Old Stag has by far and away the best food at reasonable prices. The only concern is you need to like German foods to really appreciate how good it is as...More
