We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Asked for fireside seating for two and enjoyed that. Our waiter, (Tim or Tom), was very knowledgeable about the menu, wine list etc. A great explanation about menu items is good for sales and adds class to an establishment, in my opinion. Our waiter was passionate about many things, especially his 40 Acre farm. tell him we know of a blueberry farm here in the U.P. for sale.

What a great little place. Traveling for work in Green Bay, I was looking for something local, but was really in the mood for seafood. They did not disappoint. The almond crusted ono was fabulous. They also use fruit and vegetable from local, sustainable farms, which was an added bonus. It was snowing outside and we were seated right next to the cozy fireplace. I can't wait to go back to Green Bay so I can eat there again.

Hinterland Brewery Hit High Note
Excellent food with fresh, well-made beer.
Inventive menu that never fails to satisfy.
Staff was attentive but not intrusive.
We will be back again!

Cutting edge cuisine in GB
My wife and I had an amazing dinner here on Friday, 3/22/13. We loved the decor, which is somewhat industrial, and lucked out with a table in front of the wood-burning fireplace.
Service was prompt and attentive and also quite friendly and relaxed.
We chose to share a number of appetizers, rather than go for full entrees. This is definitely the best way to enjoy their diverse selection of dishes. We especially enjoyed the Navarino Farms Elk meatballs, which were served in a hearty mushroom sauce with fresh pea shoots atop. Also, to die for was the Pork Belly, served on a bed of cheddar grits.
We shared 5 appetizers, and only had room for 1 dessert. $100 pre-tip, for an incredible meal and drinks - as good as any in bigger cities.

Hinterland came highly recommended from several of my clients. My husband and I were celebrating our five year wedding anniversary, so I booked our reservation online. I noted in the reservation it was our anniversary. When we got there we were greeted kindly and said we had a seat next to the beautiful wood burning fireplace. From the hand mulled old fashions and great wine list to the appetizers and entrees we were blown away. To top it off we got a complimentary dessert. So amazing. The knowledge our server had on the food was great. I would go back there again for a special event. I didn't want our experience to end.

We ate in the lounge, it was very loud. The table we sat at did not have an overhead light, it was dark, I had to use my brightest flashlight app to read the menu. The food and service was wonderful. Went for our son's twenty third birthday, he and his girl friend also enjoyed the meals.
Nice find, we will return.

Perfect anniversary spot
This place looks so unassuming from the outside, but once inside the ambiance is something special. Everyone was so pleasant and it had great music playing. My wife and I were seated next to the fireplace which was perfect since it was a cold, rainy evening. The server ensured that we never felt rushed to make a decision, yet we never had empty glasses. She did a great job. The menu changes daily, but it was updated on the website as well (don't you hate it when the website menu is different than when you arrive?). The cherry wheat beer and Cosmo martini were both great. The food was exceptionala and savory. I rated the noise as moderate because the tables are pretty close together so you can easily hear the conversation next to you.

Awesome Food - Especially Steak!
When I walked into this restaurant - I did not have great expectations. But after ordering - cheese plate, pot stickers, salad and their rib eye and potato cake - I quickly changed my mind... All of the food was really very good - probaly the best steak I have had in a long long time. I travel a lot and will absolutely give this as a recommendation to those I know will go to this area and will likely return here when I have to come back to the Green Bay area...

East Coast Diner
Visiting Green Bay for the weekend from the East Coast, we had one of the best dining experiences in quite some time. First our server was most welcoming, giving us a complete run down of the menu. After delving into the unique fried Brussels sprouts, we when on to the delightful Wisconsin cheese & meat plate. I also had very unique twist on the Midwestern wedge salad of bibb lettuce, a nice lead into the best part of our meal. I must say our main course, a Wisconsin grass feed ribeye was truly outstanding. It was one of the best steaks I've had in several years. It easily beats cuts I've had at other top rated steak joints across the US. Will also say it prices are quite reasonable for the quality of the food and service provided.
5/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a very late reservation, and were pleasantly surprised! Our waitress was amazing, attentive, polite, and sweet when it was clear we were her last table. She never made us feel rushed. I should also mention she was pregnant and probably ready to put her feet up, but it never showed in her demeanor towards us. Food was awesome as well.
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
The entire experience was excatly what I expected it to to...WONDERFUL!

Hinterland - A great place to dine
I had not been to Hinterland for a few years, but the atmoshpere was comfortable and easy to sit back and enjoy the company of friends and enjoy an excellent meal in a casual setting. Service was excellent and the food was fantastic. My wife told me on our way out, why don't we go here more often. She really enjoyed her night out and allowed her to finally relax at a restaurant rather than deal with all the hustle of the world.

The food was great. The staff was very friendly. Overall a great environment.

Best in town by Far!
We love this restaurant! Best chef in town. Food is fresh, fun, and exciting. We go here for our most special occasions. Wait staff is engaging and fun. Beer is excellent. I recommend this restaurant to everyone. This last visit I had left my sunglasses on the table and our waiter caught us in the parking lot to return them. I LOVE THIS PLACE!
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fabulous as always!
We alternate between "mom and dad" night, bringing the family and bringing groups of friends. Hinterland never fails to deliver in a big way. Our corporate partners mention Hinterland when they are planning to travel to Green Bay for business. Thank you!

We discovered this restaurant on our way to Door County several years ago and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food.
We returned several times and have never been disappointed.

Delicious Food -
We chose Hinterland as the restuarant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was delicious with the ginger calamari being truly outstanding. For main courses we had the sockeye salmon and the Elk tenderloin and both of them were great! The only negative to our dining experience was the loud background noise that disrupted the dining Room. A bachelorette party arrived and spent quite a bit of time in the area adjacent to the dining room. They were exceedingly loud there and the noise continued but was diminished once they all gathered and were moved upstairs.

We happened to be in GB during restaurant week, which was great. We got to taste a lot more than we would have normally. The food and drink was all wonderful! We didn't have their beer at the restaurant, because they had such great specialty drinks. However, we did have the beer at another bar and it was very good!
We will be back the next time we visit GB!
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I had a lovely meal at Hinterland during Restaurant Week. Our server was pleasant and helpful, the food was delicious, and my chocolate martini was yummy. To be honest, we don't frequent this establishment often because it is a bit out of our price range. However, we had a gift card and the special $30 meal for Restaurant Week made it affordable for us and I'm so glad! I would definitely come back for a special occasion anytime.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Thanks booked reservations during restaurant week, we had a great meal.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great find in GB
Limited options in GB, but this one is a winner. Excellent chef providing a fusion of high end dishes with Midwestern touches...like duck hearts and goat cheese Kurds. Excellent and fun foods with world class micro-brews.

Great place to celebrate!
We had a wonderful time celebrating a 40th birthday. There were 11 ladies and everything from the reservation to the birthday treat at the end were wonderful. The food, as usual, was spectacular. Thank you Hinterland for making it a special evening.

Amazing food, year after year
When my sister first moved to Green Bay over 10 years ago, we found ourselves at Hinterland Brewery for the first time. Anticipating the ambience and food that relates in our minds to the idea of a brewery, we were amazed to be treated to an amazing, sophisticated, flawlessly prepared gourmet meal, on a par with meals we have had in Chicago and New York City. ongoing visits never fail to please. Last Saturday was no exception. From the amazing pizza we shared, to the Pork Belly and grits appetizer, perfect beet salad and perfectly cooked Pork porterhouse, Hinterland is gourmet, without being "fussy". You never have to give cooking preferences or seasoning instructions. It comes out perfect each time. Keep it up, we love you!

Great eats in Green Bay!
We were in town as part of a two-week road trip and decided to stop here for dinner. Boy, are we glad we did! The food was amazing, and we're foodies that are pretty hard to impress. :-)
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time to Hinterland. Was a little put off by the prices for your average night out (however it was my birthday so that was fine). We did have to walk through the Taste of Green Bay gauntlet before arriving for dinner so we weren't starving. We ended up getting all starters. The brussel sprouts were amazing! Then we had the cheese tray which was also amazing. I had the fried green tomatoes, amazing, and my partner had the shrimp and grits, also amazing.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place!
The food is Amazing! Tim our server was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. We had a wonderful very relaxing time. This is my favorite place. I have never been disappointed.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great experience
The menu is consistently updated, but the signature flavors are always present. Nice, upscale location to celebrate a special occasion or have a romantic dinner. Wait staff is engaging and informative. Cherry wheat beer is delicious as well.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
in from Chicago- a great find
We received an uninspiring list of recommendations for dinner from the hotel we were staying at but after doing a little research, found Hinterland. The decor was lovely and the food and drinks were exceptional. The downside I would say was the service. Our waiter was very pleasant but could not remember to bring us any follow up items (an extra napkin or some more bread). That being said, if back in Green Bay, I would happily eat there again.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server Tim (?)
He was so knowledgeable and informational it made our dining experience even more enjoyable. Food and service were beyond compare to anything I have experience recently. It was a family get together and we stayed to chat over coffee until nearly 10:30 and never felt like Tim was determining when our evening was over. And I loved being able to give $8.00 to the kitchen for a drink on a beautiful meal well cooked and presented.
Not some place one can afford regularly but will certainly remain the top of my list for special occasions.
My family and I thank you and your staff for a wonderful evening.

Great Food, Service eh?!
Stopped in for my brother's bachelor party. The food was outstanding. Very unique, great presentation, and tasted even better than it looked. We planned on having a few of their handcrafted beers in the bar upstairs. Unfortunately it was closed due to a wedding. Fortunately they were not super busy and were able to accommodate us and seat us early. Our service was o.k.. Not overly friendly but not rude. Smiled but sometimes felt like we were an inconvenience. I guess you don't need to try to really work for your tips when the 20% gratuity is already added. Overall the food was great and I highly recommend it.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a treat . . .
My second visit for dinner at Hinterland . . . excellent bourbon (Willett in a bar is a rare find and a treat) and whisky selections at the bar, comprehensive wine list that is truly global in selection . . . and a fantastic dinner experience. Menu changes every night, so there is always something interesting. We shared appetizers of bbq shrimp w/cheesy grits and pork belly, marlin sashimi, and carpaccio . . . and a great dinner with bison tenderloin and lobster/mushroom.
Great dessert as well . . . chocolate cake w/bacon infused caramel sauce . . . gotta have it!

I selected Hinterland for
I selected Hinterland for dinner as part of a business meeting. I wanted to have a conversation and the setting was perfect. The food was excellent especially the soup. The service was okay but not very attentive. I waited a very long time for the bill - in fact my business associate left because he didn't have time to wait.
The overall experience was positive. I would come back.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We visited as a 3 generation group of 6. The wood-burning fireplace was a plus. Except for one person at a nearby table whose voice tends to carry, the place was comfortably quiet. So many inviting menu options and none which we tried were at all disappointing. Impressive was the number of local sources for some of their fine ingredients including some meats. Highly recommended. Don't expect bargain prices, though.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the second dining experience here in two years and the food was as amazing as the first time. The ambience remained as special as the I expected and provided an awesomely romantic setting for a marriage proposal. This venue will remain a picture of happiness in my mind forever.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great as always!
My wife and I have gone to Hinterland for dinner by ourselves, with a few close friends and with bigger groups and the food has never disappointed. Will always recommend.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Staff knows their restaurant
Server was outstanding in making suggestions, not only for dining options but brew specialities also. "If you are having X for dinner then let's do Y for your appetizer". Hinterland was very busy, however, our service and food was outstanding, timing was perfect, server was attentive but not pushy. Don't forget dessert.

We had an absolutely delicious meal next to a roaring fire. Wonderful!

A great experience
We had a wonderful meal at HInterland Brewery. It is a very warm and friendly place. The menu is ever changing and exquisite. We are looking forward to when the menu includes more game meat.It is easy to get to and has ample parking. OUr wait staff were very attentive and knowledgeable. WE LOVED everything about our experience. We will definitely return and recommend. I had Walu. My husband had Mahi and our guest had Halibut. All meals were fabulous. Followed by an excellent dessert and pot of coffee.A beautiful warm fireplace nearby with a GIANT moose head overhead to guard the fire.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
The menu is a bit expensive but the food did not disappoint.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is my favorite restaurant because of the balance and interplay of all the flavors along with the quality and sourcing of the food. The ribeye was amazing!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
We celebrated my wife's birthday with another couple and had a wonderful evening. We sat by the fire and stuffed ourselves with a delicious variety of foods. We shared calamari and a cheese plate to start, then everyone had different soup, salad and quail - all wonderful. We had four different entrees; every one was perfect. We hadn't saved room for dessert, but ate it anyway, and weren't disappointed. Everything was great! We'll definitely come back for another special event.
