A pizza/brewpub place with an up north/cabin ambiance to the place. A decent sized bar area in one room with TVs and a few other rooms with plenty of seating. Service was good and the bartender knew a bit about the beer. They had 10 on tap with samplers available. Pizza was solid but not great. Prices seemed pretty good. A nice brewpub stop if you are in the Dells.
Stopped in on a Saturday evening on the way to LaCrosse. Big parking lot was fairly full, but lots of room inside. Definitely a family hangout; lots of kids with moose horns leaving the joint. Bar itself was empty. Service was solid and friendly. 10 beer flights with 5oz pours were $14. Beers were pretty mediocre, but a couple were decent. Pizza was quite good.
not a great place. The food was over priced, but kudos to the server who gave me a discount. they had about a dozen different kinds of beer - but they were all their own house brewed, and most of them sucked. that is all.
On the road to Lake Delton in the midst of the Dells strip. BIg "up north"-y looking family restaurant. Inside lots of room and a couple of bar areas. 12 taps, all their own brews; half seasonal and half full time selections. In the summer, that led to golden ales and tangerine ales, and such. The IPA -- my personal gauge to a place -- was ok, no better. Happy to give samples, and really a happy vibe throughout the place. Food was pizzas, bar food and some additional Italian. The calzones were excellent. With kids, I will return.
Thought my last brewpub I entered in here was my last, but I was wrong. Haha, just found this one.
Yup, my family and I drove through the Wisconsin Dells and we sure did stop here. If anything, its a well lit, pretty clean establishment and we sat upstairs and got to look at the brewing vats which to me was pretty cool and I got to show my son which was still pretty cool. The service, well, for a Wednesday, it was pretty busy and ya know, we got served pretty quickly as well, nice! The selection, its their beer and a long list of appetizing looking beers. The food was good - I had a personal hamburger pizza = awesome. The value, well, as far as I know, it seemed like a good place for your dollar, but I donít know much about the economy of Wisconsin. Overall, that place was to my liking, but then again, Iím probably just a typical Northerner who liked the rustic outdoorsy look of the place, probably not the place for uppity city slickers.
The brewmaster here called the authorities on a charity homebrew event a couple years ago. Not worth anyoneís time supporting this place as long as Jaime Martin (Baertsch) still works here. http://www.wiscnews.com/baraboonewsrepublic/news/local/article_7f16d998-8d88-11e0-8384-001cc4c03286.html http://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=177485178976213&id=172852729439458
I stopped in for a visit while driving on vacation. The place is made to look like a log cabin in the north woods with wood everywhere. The bar is a huge thick slab of lumber. They had nine beers on tap. The food is typical pub fare with a concentration on pizza. I had a personal pizza which was plenty for me. Friendly service. One thing I did like is they collar wrap their growlers with shrink wrap which I thought was a neat idea. Very family friendly.
I like the ambiance with the northwoods feel. Service is usually attentive and its usually pretty busy. The beer is average, no real standouts good or bad. Itís in a resort area so prices tend to be higher than other breweries like it. Certainly worth a stop if in the area.
