This has consistently been one of my favorite places in the Northwoods. The beer cheese soup is a must and so is the beef and brie. Cannot say better things about MBC!

The food was really good. My Rueben had the best corned beef ( no fatty clumps). Truffle fries were amazing. Different sauces for different foods, quite the experience. Definitely going back.

We aren't big beer fans, so we can for the food. Not only did we find some great food, but also found some very enjoyable beer to go with it. Friendly staff, reasonable prices.

Nestled in the heart of Northern Wisconsin’s lake country, the Minocqua Brewing Company is housed in an historic landmark building located on the island city’s north shore. Built in 1927 as a Masonic Temple, the building was transformed into a micro brewery and restaurant seventy years later. The brewery houses a seven and a half barrel system producing seven kinds of ales and lagers. The bar features a fine selection of wines, and cocktails, along with the skillfully crafted signature beer selections. The brewery's restaurant offers an interesting assortment of appetizers, sandwiches, soups, and salads with a gourmet twist.
