On a recent girls' spa getaway to Kohler, we took the recommendation of another friend to try River Wildlife, and it was fabulous. The quaint log lodge (and the friendly staff) provided a wonderful atmosphere for a delicious lunch. In fact, we enjoyed the ambiance and food so much that we went back on our second day, too. From the... More

My wife and I came up to Kohler for a quick get away from Chicago. We have been here several times and decided to try River Wildlife. The shuttle took us from the American Club to this rustic cabin in the woods. Walking in you are surrounded by the cozy feeling of a winter retreat. The staff greet you like... More

By far the best place we tried in Kohler. Cozy up to warm fire before dinner. Small selection of excellently prepared foods. All come with a broth or cream based soup and a house or seasonal salad. I had a lentil soup with sausage that warmed me from head to toe! Duck for dinner had a crispy crust with moist... More

Food is always excellent! It's fresh and local and always dependable. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The setting in the woods is very romantic--our first date was at River Wildlife and we also became engaged there!

While staying at the American Club, my husband and I decided to try River Wildlife so we made reservations and purchased the Wildlife passes to allow us entry to River Wildlife Lodge. Once we parked and discovered we had to walk down a path to the lodge we were instantly smiling, the little walk put us in the moment of... More

We were on a segway tour of Kohler (great way to see the area) and stopped in here. Didn't eat but the lodge is very beautiful. Had a talk about the wildlife in the area. Mr. Kohler saw the lodge in Montana and liked it so much it had it moved (piece by piece) to his property. Guess all you... More

Located just outside of Kohler, Wisconsin, this is a wonderfully rustic and cozy establishment. We made lunch reservations for 1PM (as they close for lunch at 2PM). Almost every table has its own unique environment. The smoothing smell of the large hearth wood fireplace wafted gently through the air. Lunch offerings were plentiful and all appeared unique. I had the... More
