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.
