This place is a hidden northwoods gem! If you are in the Cable area you simply must give it a try. We’ve eaten here many times over the years and have never been anything less than thrilled with our meal. Beautiful decor, excellent food, a nice wine list, great service, and the best greeter anywhere (Arwen the Black Lab) all make for a memorable experience!

This is a fine North Woods dining experience, but with the time it takes to get your food the experience is over and gone south! The Pork Loin was terrific! The Root vegetable rissoto was a mess, uncooked butter and no vegetables F-. The waitress was upbeat and nice but the overall experience was a big let down. The grade was a solid "D" for don't.

This is one of my all time favorite places, plus it's in the middle of the Wisconsin north woods. Excellent wine list, fabulous food and attentive wait staff. This would be a winner even in a large city.

Fabulous place...with a lovely wine list. Food a little pricey but also delicious. The musician they had for New Year's Eve was a nice compliment to the entire evening.

We went for a birthday celebration. Food was out of the ordinary, so unexpected for a Pub:)
Desserts were wonderful, we had the Key Lime pie, so good.
If you are looking to have a dining experience to remember, eat at the Rookery!

We've been to the Rookery numerous times over the last decade and typically, it is the best dining room in the region. This trip, the one blemish on the evening was that the special Copper River Sockeye salmon was overcooked. It is pretty rare to have poorly cooked fish in the Northwoods as so much of it is served, so we attributed the mishap to 'anyone can have a bad day' syndrome. The high points of the meal were Arwen, the Lab mascot, and the great personal service provided by Becky. Owner Bill was okay, too. We'll be back.
