It's not a trip to Northern Wisconsin if we don't visit Smiley's!! The owners are always there, and they are so friendly. They always engage their customers and make you feel right at home. It reminds me of Cheers in that way, except they don't necessarily know your name (nor would I expect them to lol). The Bloody Marys are so delicious at Smiley's, with lots of garnish. They often have a seasonal drink. Last fall we got a pumpkin pie beverage that was incredible. The food is typical bar food, but done well. They have lots of fried stuff to choose from, and that's never a bad thing! I could (and have) spend many hours at Smiley's. Everything about this bar is inviting and it is the perfect "up north" bar.
They oughta call it Frowny's. One star for being open. My dog really liked the Philly Cheese Steak. There were cute bees outside.
