A charming place except for the large oaf of a bartender, whose personality suits him well to be a prison guard but not a server in the hospitality business. Three of us were in for drinks and dinner. The bartender neglected to put in our food order, but that's forgivable. Service went downhill from there. One of our entrees never... More

Very nice high end menu but has limited seating. Food is awesome but you need to be there at opening which is 5PM or you will wait a while for a table. From last count, I think there's only eleven tables so get there early, the food is great.

Great place! Happy to see the new management is doing a great job. Garlic stuffed tenderloin was awesome! Melt in your mouth, mustard cognac sauce on the side was great. Tomato soup was great. I ate at the bar, the bartender forgot I was ordering a meal. Once I got my order in, the service was very good. He was... More

The place was pretty busy. It is Saturday night though. I felt bad for the staff..... 1 bartender & 1 server. 😞 Definitely understaffed. It showed on their faces and in the hast we experienced. (Forgotten drinks) The portions were decent & the drinks were good.

There are not a plethora of dinning establishments in the Land O Lakes area....the Bear Trap has been around awhile. We have dined here before, and were somewhat disappointed this past weekend. I ordered the King Salmon which arrived at room temperature,drowning in a thick tasteless white sauce. The fish itself was very very tiny. The twice baked potato was... More

It doesn't get much better than this place for dining within 30 miles of Land O' Lakes, WI. Make reservations or you may not get a seat anywhere but the bar! Despite most entrees costing $23-$30 each, this place is very popular for good reason. Their mashed sweet potatoes with caramel sauce are to-die-for. A family of four (no young... More

The Beartrap has been a iconic place to enjoy good food, drink and conversation with everyone. The new owners have continued the tradition of keeping the legacy here. The food continues to be very good, service excellent and overall atmosphere great. The restaurant is a little pricey for restaurants in the Northwoods. If price does not matter you will enjoy...
