We have stayed in the flowage area for probably 40+ years. Although there are not a lot of restaurants in the Mercer area, I would rather eat hot dogs at home than go to this restaurant! We went to this restaurant with our family in July 2016 for dinner. Although there were only 2 other tables being used it took... More

My brother invited us all up for a weekend reunion. He reserved 4 rooms at the Cranberry inn because he felt it was the nicer of the places in the area, and he was correct! We had a really nice big room that was newly remodeled. Heat worked water was hot and the TV worked! Bed was comfortable and there... More

Had heard a lot of positive things about this place, did not live up to what I heard. Nice looking restaurant, we were seated quickly. Service was quite slow, took a long time to get our appetizers which were good, Bog Shrimp. The soups were good too, especially the onion. Biggest problem came with the entree, I ordered the haddock... More

very quaint northwoods restaurant. nice bar area with TV. decent amount of seating in restaurant area so we got seated right away. pretty complete menu. kids menu wasn't printed, but some options available. i think they may have been understaffed as we waited a long time (35-40 minues) for our meal. family of five, no alcohol was $83 before tip.....

Stopped in several time over the span of a long weekend at a cottage in the area. Initial visit was to purchase freshly baked bread to make sandwiches after a long ride to the destination. Enjoyed the Friday fish fry which had options of bluegill or haddock. We all enjoyed the bluegill fish fry and agreed it was one of... More

We were recently on a family vacation traveling through Mercer & found this restaurant on TripAdvisor. Beautiful atmosphere and the food was good, but the service seemed very disorganized & slow. I would recommend the veggie kabobs as a side. Really an interesting sauce!

While the building is gorgeous, the food continues to leave something to be desired. For the prices being charged, there are much better options in the area.

What a surprise to find a restaurant like this in a small community. I have ate here several times and each time they take extra care to make sure that my meal is made to met my food allergies while still making a delicious meal. I will go here every time I go up north.
