We decided to meet friends on a Saturday evening. There was a special for the evening of coconut walleye. I have to say it is some of the best fish I have had in a very long time.

We've had several dinners here and have been awed more and more each time! On our past visit we learned that all of the dressings and sauces are created from scratch! It was evident in each dish.

When I ate at Aberdeen in 2013, the magnificent view, the warm feeliing of the log lodge style structure and the magical ambiance of the double-sided fireplace and beautiful view of the Manitowish Chain of Lakes hooked me.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review for Aberdeen Restaurant & Bar! Per your question regarding our Prime Rib, yes they are hand cut as we cook an entire Prime at a time. One way we keep our pricing reasonable is to avoid putting "extras" into the price of the meal as not everyone wants them. We... More

Have been to the restaurant a few times and thoroughly enjoyed each dish we had. The prime rib is large and delicious, I also like the cheese potion. My favorite though is "the shrimp boat" special! In fact heading there tomorrow with friends to show them how great it is! Keep up the great work Aberdeen!
