Rustic building and good food make for a fun afternoon/evening. Very casual and great for a quick stop.

We visited this bar on a snowmobiling trip, The floor was so slanted, you could barely walk! (and that was before any cocktail!) It has been a while, so maybe if has improved, but that is my memory of that place!

Not impressed. Very limited beer selection. Rustic interior...like a small, dark pioneer cabin. Overheard uncomfortable remarks about lesbians, Hispanics, and African Americans.

This should be historic. Rustic but with good bar food and apps. Very reasonable drinks and friendly atmosphere. Worth a stop

The Howling Dog is a must stop for anyone venturing into Wisconsin's Northwoods! The pizza is really great! If you're in town on Sunday, be sure to stop in for breakfast! The owners are on-sight most of the time, and it's a fun place to meet with friends.
