The service was outstanding as well as the food. Very friendly staff, the room was a little noisy but there was a group that was hosting a birthday party which couldn't be helped. Overall it was a great experience and I will defiantly go back.

Valentine's day! Food was great and great expanded menu. The staff was very nice too and they were filling up fast. We both had the prime rib 1 medium, and 1 medium rare, both done just the way we wanted them. And the items on the salad bar were nice and fresh.

The service was not the greatest but the restaurant was very busy on Saturday night. Service was slow but food was brought made well and hot. Very little checking to see how things were. There was a loud and obnoxious table near the back but that happens. All in all a good meal in a nice place. We will be back.

Not at all what we expected. Expecting a finer dining experience, but it seemed to mix that with a sports bar. Get that there was a Packer game going on, but this place should probably pick one theme or another and stock with it. Food was NOT well prepared, and seemed old.

Excellent food, friendly staff and great location with lake view. Ordered dry rub ribs that were cooked perfectly. Also had a pretzel w/ cheese dip special that night not on the menu. Pretzel was made perfectly, not too hard or chewy like many restaurants do. The only negative I would say is $6 for the garlic bread was high for the size you get. Good taste though. Will be back.

Mom had the salmon dish and said it was very good. I ordered the AUCE ribs. They brought out a half rack. They were OK. They asked several times if I wanted more but I declined. They could have offered to give me the half rack price but hey, I ordered AUCE so no big deal. My wife ordered a salad and a cup of tomato basil soup. The salad was fine but she took two tastes of the soup and said it tasted more like spaghetti sauce than soup and she didn't eat it. The waitress cleared the table but left the soup. You think she would have asked if there was a problem with it, instead they just left it there. We had another drink and talked some more and the bowl of soup was still on the table when we left.

Very average dinner. Parking was an issue due to a benefit that was going on in their hall. Normally parking would be fine. We were the only people in the dining room, so we anticipated quick service. Not the case. My drink arrived, but there was lipstick on the rim and I wasn't wearing lipstick. I showed the waitress. She brought a new drink, but didn't apologize or really even say anything about it. I ordered the walleye special with caramelized onions and cheddar cheese. It was just ok, I wasn't expecting it to be just sliced cheese slapped on and melted on top. My husband ordered a side of fries with his fish tacos. The brought him a tiny appetizer plate with about a dozen fries, hardly worth the "upgrade". The amount of fish on his tacos was not worth it either. It was just a strange dinner. The place has so much potential, but just never lives up to it. We won't be back.

From the minute we stepped in the door to a cheerful greeting, sanitizer at entrance, seating outside with a beautiful view of the lake, along with excellent service and food, our evening was most enjoyable. Add on a treat from Mueller's for our birthday friend and generous dessert servings for all of us, the evening was complete. We will be returning soon and recommend Mueller's to others.

We were the only one's there. Our waitress was nice and attentive. Bartenders had no idea how to make basic drinks like a Martini and a brandy old fashioned. Food was only ok - appetizers good. Ambience is run down and dated. Sad - it's a prime location on Big Cedar. Needs big time management change and some investment. My french onion soup was sent back immediately - tasted exactly like very moldy bread.

We arrived on a Friday night at 7:15 and the parking lot was mostly empty. Went inside, the bar was deserted and only about 6 tables filled. That seemed like a bad sign. Waitress was slow but friendly. Food was kind of slow coming but the blackened cod was very good as well as the potato pancakes. My son had the steak bites appetizer and they were very good as well. This sounds cheap but my biggest problem was the price of my son's soda. He had 2 tap rootbeers in a smallish 10oz or so mug and we were charged $4 a piece for them. That seemed a bit out of line for just a soda. Overall we had a good experience and enjoyed the food. I would recommend it for a quiet dinner.

Food was very average. French onion soup disappointed, was ‘ground up’ and too much sage, prime rib wasn’t a great piece of meat(more fat than should be) preparation was ok, Service average too. Prices were not out of line.

Fish fry was not good at all. One plate came out cold, and when we brought it to their attention, they took it back and heated it up in a microwave instead of making a new plate of using a pan. One of us ordered the jumbo shrimp for $22 and it was nowhere near jumbo. 6 medium sized shrimp and a side of frozen beans/corn, with potatoes. Way over priced, poor food, below average experience. Bummer as we were really looking forward to it.

We were very disappointed in the overall appearance of Mueller's Linden Inn. Ambiance is a large part in the restaurant experience. I know someone who works at Mueller's Linden Inn, and this person was always posting such great things about the restaurant so naturally we wanted to give it a try. This was our 50th Wedding Anniversary Dinner, and we brought our Granddaughter along with us so it was a special occasion. While the food was good, the waiter was great, the restaurant itself was in very poor condition. The interior was very depressing, old and terribly out of date.

Very nice place to dine. It was quiet on Tuesday night and it was a very nice table next to the fire place. It was quite chilly outside and there was a light snow falling so I was happy to be cozy and warm in the company of two good friends having a nice dinner

Went on a Saturday night for prime rib. The prime rib wad good however they use what appeared to be canned mushrooms and a canned or frozen vegetable blend. Overall dinner was good but the side dishes could be improved whit using fresh ingredients.

We so wished this would have been good, as the location is fun near Big Cedar Lake...very up north like atmosphere. Unfortunately, our experience was not good...bordering on terrible. From the start we were not welcomed or made to feel at home in the bar area. The food was sub par (tasted like food service food rewarmed) and our wait service person did not have much of a personality or attentiveness. She was very timid and seemed to have very little experience. When we voiced our concern over our food, she didn't say a word or send a manager...just gave us our bill. We will not be returning, nor recommend this place to our friends/family. From the lack of customers in the restaurant, it appears others have found to have the same bad experience.
