By far the best place we tried in Kohler. Cozy up to warm fire before dinner. Small selection of excellently prepared foods. All come with a broth or cream based soup and a house or seasonal salad. I had a lentil soup with sausage that warmed me from head to toe! Duck for dinner had a crispy crust with moist... More

Food is always excellent! It's fresh and local and always dependable. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The setting in the woods is very romantic--our first date was at River Wildlife and we also became engaged there!

While staying at the American Club, my husband and I decided to try River Wildlife so we made reservations and purchased the Wildlife passes to allow us entry to River Wildlife Lodge. Once we parked and discovered we had to walk down a path to the lodge we were instantly smiling, the little walk put us in the moment of... More

We were on a segway tour of Kohler (great way to see the area) and stopped in here. Didn't eat but the lodge is very beautiful. Had a talk about the wildlife in the area. Mr. Kohler saw the lodge in Montana and liked it so much it had it moved (piece by piece) to his property. Guess all you... More

Located just outside of Kohler, Wisconsin, this is a wonderfully rustic and cozy establishment. We made lunch reservations for 1PM (as they close for lunch at 2PM). Almost every table has its own unique environment. The smoothing smell of the large hearth wood fireplace wafted gently through the air. Lunch offerings were plentiful and all appeared unique. I had the... More

..and yet just minutes from the American Club! After a great hike we stepped into this cozy cabin and shared a few cold ones and a perfect lunch. Memorable little details like fresh herbs and fragrant berries adorn the plates. Hearty homemade soups. Simply unforgettable, we are looking forward to returning for dinner some day.

I invited some friends and family to join me at River Wildlife for lunch on a Friday. All but one had been there before, but not for many years. We were greeted warmly by the staff and shown to a table that looked out at the bird feeder. We were given plenty of time to look over the menu which... More

Held a business lunch here last week. Incredible from start to finish. Fresh ingredients, full of flavor and well put together dishes. Service was second to none and the hot apple cider after coming in from the snow was perfect. Absolute top class dining. We will be back.
