If you are hungry.. order one of their burgers. I personally ordered a chicken sandwich. I don't remember the name but it had onion rings, beacon, lettuce, tomato, chipotle sauce. The chicken was grilled. OMG! I definitely didn't eat dinner! YUMMIE! My hubby had a burger, loaded as well. It was big enough to feed us both! Priced very well,... More

I've been here a couple different times and had the walleye dinner. Five big fillets, fries, slaw, rye bread, and tartar....everything is excellent. Cold beer and friendly fast service too.

Cliff and Sarah make the best baby walleye in the entire Northwoods! The burgers, sandwiches, and soups are all great--you can't go wrong. A bowl of any of Sarah's soups with fruit and garlic bread is a wonderful lunch. The cod sandwich is awesome--get it with American cheese melted on the bun like I do! They are very particular about... More

The Honey Bear's fish fry is great, the place is quaint and tables are limited. I've found that going at 7:30 is the best time on a Friday Fish Fry, the place has cleared out and the servings are most generous... my favorite... walleye is superb!

Great fish fry on Friday. It's a bit crowded but that's because so many people like this place. We called ahead for reservations and that helped.

service a bit slow, but worth waiting for. A small eating area, very noisy and hard to hear during conversation. Usually don't offer a second cup of coffee or a re-order on drinks unless it's from the bar.

The Honey Bear has the best Friday fish fry - go early or be prepared to wait - either way it's worth it. This place has been around for ever it seems - the food is always great. It's located on Hwy 70 West of Eagle River towards St Germain.

Portions are often very generous! We like that they offer some really good low-carb entrees. The soups are all homemade and yummy! The best Bloody Mary in Vilas County, Wisconsin, and maybe the whole state!

Definitely need to make this stop if checking out the local establishments. We were visiting for the weekend. We ordered up the best Bloody Marys ever!! Bartender and locals were very friendly and made us feel at home.
