Walking into this place was like strolling into a lodge in the middle of the Northwoods. Beautiful wood and dark green motif. The staff seems to have a clue about the beer they serve, which tends to be 4 regulars and 2 seasonals. I had the beer cheese soup which was probably the best I have ever had. Itís probably not worth the trek if youíre only in Duluth, but if youíre crossing Northern Wisconsin anyway, be sure to stop.

Nice place. Food was good. Bartender claimed there were not enough varieties to do a flight.

Grabbed some lunch here on a Monday while on vacation in Ashland, WI in Spring 2011.
South Shore Brewery is part of the Deep Water Grill which they have a resturant, bar, and a brewery for drinking there and they also bottle for retail sale; the closest place to buy it is right across the street at Star Liquor. The service was the standard good service you expect. Had a standard variety of sit down food/meals as well as special seafood dishes. Got a lot more food than I was expecting for the price and it was nice to have a local store made brew instead of the major macro-brews which were only $4 a glass. Something nice to try if up north!

September 2nd, 2012. A nice place, I understand this is their third location. Good, cheffy menu with a lot to choose from. my sausage was ok, but their wild rice soup is excellent. Service was as attentive as necessary. Try a beer flight for only $5. There are not a lot of options in this area of Wisconsin, so I recommend a stop here. It is only 25 miles from White Winter winery.

Visited on Nov. 18, 2011. Awesome atmosphere - very cozy. Only had 5 beers on this day and the service was just okay, but a good experience nonetheless. I had the chicken enchiladas, which were terrific.

Excellent food and nice variety of beers on tap. The ambiance was very cozy. We were in a snug booth with its own little light. Tried the Nut Brown Ale, their signature beer, and was very pleased with it. Also gave the Coffee Mint Stout a try. It was interesting, but the mint flavor was pretty overpowering. We really enjoyed our meal and would definitely go back next time weíre in the area.

Beautiful place right downtown, nice use of wood, dark green and brown furniture, huge comfy booths for big Wisconsin bellies; 2 nice looking bars and a cool balcony....food was good, a black bean burger and outstanding waffle fries, fairly typical menu....samples on the small size, and most not that good though nothing was terrible. A worthwhile stop but I canít imagine going out of my way for it unless perhaps on the way to White Winter Winery in Iron River, or up to Bayfield.

Decent place. I wish they rotated their beers more often and had a little bit bigger selection. But they achieve what they set out to do. Food is pretty decent and prices are good. Cool building.

Is a nice setting, esp considering where you are. I really donít go for the nautical theme too much. Bar is very nice, bartender was hungover...always a good sign. Friendly place. Food is fine. Beers are above average, with some originality. The old train station location was much better..but this is a great place to visit.
