My husband and I visited at 5pm on a Friday specifically because we'd heard the fish fry was good. The place was half full already, but we were seated right away. Quintessential supper club, from the menu to the decor. Loved the Northwoods feel! Service was pretty good. Unfortunately though, neither of us was impressed with the food. The fish... More

We enjoyed Mothers Day dinner at the Al Gen. Excellent food and great service as always. A must stop place in Rhinelander. Great Friday fish fry and great Sunday chicken special.

This was our first visit to Al Gens Dinner Club in Rhinelander. Ron Faiola's Wisconsin Supper Club book brought us in. We were warmly greeted at the bar by Deb as she mixed Old Fashioneds for us and told us some of the history of the Al Gen Dinner club. Deb took great care us as we enjoyed some great... More

We go often for the Sunday night all you can eat chicken. It's a great price and a not so crowded night to dine out. Family style sides - lots of food! We will be going back to try the fish fry.

This is the quintessential Wisconsin supper club. Rustic interior mixing stone and native wood, comfortable seating in a large dining room. Friendly servers give you plenty of time to peruse their extensive menu and offer advice on your dining choices. The food was terrific, the drinks substantial, the price reasonable. The locals seem to dine there and that says a... More

We have had the pleasure of dining at Al-Gen a total of 5 times throughout the fall and Christmas/New Years season 2016. We love the Friday night fish fry and the Sunday chicken dinner. The restaurant is always festively decorated for the season. It was absolutely lit up for the Christmas season, quite magical indeed. Drinks are always good and... More

We went to the Friday night fish fry with the kids. We did expect a wait and timed it right so we were in the second seating after opening. Sat at the bar and had one drink before we were sat. Excellent old fashioneds. Kids ordered from kids menu, which was your typical and they liked their food. Fish was... More

This place is outstanding - food is great and plenty of it. Service is unbeatable and the décor is really interesting. We could not have had such good homemade food with all the accompanying dishes anywhere else. The homemade bread was excellent.
