This is a must stop at least once when we are visiting the Northwoods. Usually go there twice, once for the Sunday special, grilled prime rib sandwich. It is so tender and flavorful, always exceeds my expectations. The pizza is another must stop. Looking forward to our next visit (hope the grilled prime rib sandwich is still the Sunday special!!!)

Friends invited us to join them at Knockers for something called a "Pasta Toss"...we arrived at about 5:45 on a Sunday night. The place was already crowded, but the minute we opened the door, the overpowering strong smell (or STENCH, as I prefer to say) of Garlic hit us. Neither my wife nor I like garlic in ANY form, and...

Prime rib sandwich on sunday night is great. Pizza is best in area. Good choices of beer and Shelly makes all the desserts.

We took the recommendation of our Whispering Pine Lodge host Jeff and ordered some pizzas to go back to the lodge. Everyone enjoyed!

I've avoided this place because I thought it was like Hooters. Nothing could be further than the truth! It's a cute little pub with separate eating areas. The pizza was the best I've had in a long time! The service is a bit slow but that's because one person does everything. I've eaten here at dinner and it was excellent!... More

I've been here several times over the last couple of years. It's really been hit or miss with the food. Also with the service. I guess I just depends on who's behind the bar and who's making the pizza. Last time I was in the pizza was good and the service so-so. This place isn't my first place on my... More

I stopped into Knockers, not only because the name made me chuckle, but I wasn't feeling too hungry, so a pizza was all I wanted. I ended up being pleasantly surprised. The pizza was delicious, if a little large for me (I can't eat a 14 inch pizza solo!). The bar staff were friendly & welcoming, as were the locals.... More

Nothing fancy here, just good food with a nice bar to boot. They can accommodate large parties easily. They have daily specials. I recommend the pizza! Probably the best pizza in the Northwoods. Only drawback is they charge for soda refills. Don't let that hold you back, the food is good and reasonably priced.

We would never have found Knockers but for our daughter and son-in-law, who live in Rhinelander and are regular patrons. Located in a newer multi-store buildind, it nonetheless captures the ambience of a supper club and sports bar all in one. That is intended as a compliment and not a criticism. We were there on Labor Day early evening to... More

I have enjoyed their pizza since I tried them years ago when they were a hidden bar near Sugar Camp. The cornmeal crust and thick sauce is just like my own. They can get busy and struggle to keep up but they are friendly and appreciate your business.
