Start with a cocktail
Step inside and take in the ambiance—Northwoods charm abounds throughout Vilas County’s supper clubs, with log-cabin décor that includes everything from vintage beer signs to trophy fish on the walls. Supper clubs can be busy, so order a drink while you wait for your table or your takeout. But what to sip? Consider the classic Northwoods staple: a Brandy Old Fashioned (sweet or sour, it’s your choice), a popular drink at Eagle Waters Resort in Eagle River. If you’re at Pitlik’s Sand Beach Resort (also in Eagle River), consider their Ultimate Bloody Mary.
What’s on the menu?
One thing you’re sure to find at a Vilas County supper club is heaping portions of delicious dishes, so be sure to bring your appetite. Of course, you’ll find classics like the Friday fish fry (enjoy cod, walleye and perch at Eagle Waters Resort and haddock, bluegill and walleye at Pitlik’s) and prime rib pretty much anywhere you go. But you’ll also find lots of other options, including steaks, shrimp, ribs, sandwiches, burgers, pizza and even meatloaf. Oh, and don’t forget a trip to the salad bar.
Save room for dessert
Sure, it might be challenging after a filling supper club meal, but try to make room for dessert, because you’ll find local favorites like chocolate lava cake, tiramisu, or caramel-covered cheesecake. Yum!
