Our Top 5 Favorite Restaurants in Minocqua

Minocqua, Wisconsin is nicknamed the "Island City" because it's almost completely surrounded by water. This feature, coupled with majestic views of wildlife and the iconic northern pine trees, offers an unbeatable ambiance to the dining experience at almost every restaurant in town!

While we haven't been to every restaurant in town (a shame, we know), we have been to a handful that seemed to go above and beyond in quality of food, friendly service and overall atmosphere. Take a look at the restaurants listed below then start planning your trip to dine in the Northwoods! Our resort is ideally situated close enough to enjoy local dishes daily but far enough to bypass the hustle and bustle of Minocqua's downtown night scene. Call 715-588-1962 today to secure a cabin or a room at our plush bed & breakfast.
