This place is great. Their barbecue is excellent. Oak wood smoked brisket, pulled pork, ribs, and the best prime rib in the Northwoods in my opinion. The prime rib is smoked, but you don't get an overwhelming smoke flavor, it is just excellent slow roasted prime rib. I have been searching for a great prime rib in the Northwoods and this is finally it. I have going here since they first opened in Minocqua. Now that they moved, they have a lot more tables. I have had barbecue many places including a quite a few places in the south and this is as good as the best down there. It is so good that when I had visitors in the middle of winter during a snowstorm, I drove the 70 minutes round trip to pick up ribs and brisket for my guests. There were travel warnings that night while I was making the trip, but I would not go anywhere else for ribs Shaun the pit master is very particular about his food. It will not leave the counter until it meets his standards. I can't recommend this place enough. Oh and he finally has unsweetened Iced Tea for us northerners who can't have the sugar.
Delicious food!! Every year this place is a must to stop! New this year were their Bayou Fries...yum! Lots of food for a great price!
This is the best smoked pulled pork ever. Sandwich comes with 2 sides - be sure to try the baked beans (best I have ever had) and potato salad. It's a friendly casual place. In nice weather you can sit outside by the water. Can't wait to visit area again, we'll eat there many more times.

Little Creek has great coffee and fantastic coffee shop entrees, quiches, and pastries. They have a great little space to work in, with free wifi, and the drinks are top notch. Great place to get a cup of coffee and more in the North Woods!
The coffee is okay. The oatmeal is pretty good, and so are the pastries. I like this place the best of the three coffee shops in the Minocqua area. It's expensive but no more than is typical for the area. No free wifi though- at least not on the day I brought my computer a couple weeks ago.
Very nice place! Super cozy seating areas and I'm a sucker for places with a fireplace! Coffee was really good! I had a Mocha Frappe two days in a row and those tend to be hit or miss at coffee houses but this was perfect both times! Great selection of flavored syrups available as well. I've always really enjoyed Horhey's but now I definitely have another place to get my drinks!!

Good clean bar fare and more. We had ribs and chicken - ribs were a little dry but chicken was amazing. Tables next to us ordered pizza and it looked really good.
Stopped in for dinner on a Sunday; not busy so seated quickly. Server took our order within 10 minutes of arrival, but waited 20-25 minutes for our food. Hubby had the chicken dinner special and I had a grilled chicken sandwich. Food was only OK. There is an outdoor deck for al fresco dining. Probably wouldn't stop here again.
This is a fun spot to drink and watch sports, but I cannot recommend eating here. The steak sandwich was tough and inedible. The shaved beef sandwich with au jus was better, but just OK. Sides were forgettable. The broasted chicken was not available the night we were there.
