The smelt were ok. Some were very fishy tasting. The smelt and fries got cold fast. The bartenders were very friendly.

Stopped in on Friday night without reservations. Asked the hostess for a table and she told us it would be a 30 minute wait, give or take. We were seated within that time frame. The service we received was great. Our food was tasty and served hot. This is one of our local favorites!

This is a must for typical Wisconsin atmosphere. Quality food and large portions. They take reservations even for the fish fry. Huge selection of ice cream drinks will keep you coming back. Really nice people.

I went there with my friend's family. It was hard to get a table as they do not have many and it was the fourth of July weekend. The hostess was able to take our -pre-orders for food since my friend has two little ones. The food was typically of a bar. They items looked better on the menu than... More

We were greeted when we walked in the door and seated. We were very hungry so it was nice to get in, I had a pan fried Walleye which was very tasty. My husbands burger was very flavorful. The bar was very happy to make an ice cream drink for dessert. I ordered a Pink Squirrel we loved it and... More

My husband and I LOVE this place. We enjoy the bar, the food, and the staff! Everything is so inexpensive and they have specials every night they are open. I wish, the only thing, is that they were open Monday's and Tuesday's also...since I crave their chicken!

My husband took me to the Old Cedar Inn for my birthday last fall. Upon walking in, it appears to be nothing more than a bar until the hostess takes you beyond and into a dining room. While the staff is dressed extremely casually, and the atmosphere matches the attire, the food choices are a scale up from what I... More

Recently our community band stopped in for pizza and beer after our last concert of the year. We were able to get a few tables in the dining room but it was pretty crowded. The staff was very good at bringing out pizzas frequently. They were just frozen pizzas, nothing special but a good variety. They do have Franziskaner Weiss... More

My wife and I visited this pub for the first time for supper on a Thursday afternoon. Outside of the Pub looked simple and old, which the bar matched. The dining area had a newer feel with a large picture window to the parking lot. The bar was very busy at 530pm with my wife and I the first to... More
