This place has been closed for quite some time now. Previous Chef, Wes, owns The Brick in Lake Tomahawk.

Even The Dinner Table--which briefly replaced Rusty Putter--is gone. It's a golf course location and the golf course recently closed and declared bankruptcy. The place is empty as of July 2013.

Since taking over the Rusty Putter, Steven Wheeler (chef/owner) seems to have put every ounce of energy into creating delicious food in the Northwoods. We have dined at the restaurant and also used Steven for catering services for our wedding June 2011. This man is...More
