Parking in back of restaurant. Ordered Terry's steak sandwich, husband ordered Walleye, clam chowder and scallops appetizer. Very clean. Western decor. Bathrooms clean & cute "water pump" faucets. Scallops had a peppery kick, very good - lasted about 60 seconds! Walleye was delicious, thick flaky fish with light breading. Terry's sandwich had nice slices of juicy mushrooms and savory onions. Steak was cooked just right, medium rare. The baked beans and cole slaw with Walleye were ok. Splurged on blackberry pie. Don't even ask me how good that was! Very good meal glad we found this place. One bad thing, my feet barely touched the rung on the tall barstool seats!
Finding a good place to eat up north is a tricky business sometimes, expecially since service can vary so much from one to another. When we gave up on Gateway in Crivitz last year, we looked for alternate places to try. Going a little farther past Crivitz to Wausaukee, we found Newingham's. My wife's uncle (uncle-in-law??) recommended this place as one of his favorite dining establishments in the north woods of Wisconsin and the UP. The front of the building is rather plain and unimpressive. Once inside, you see how huge it is, with two separate areas. The main entrance leads you into the bar area, with multiple pool tables and some side seating of tall tables with bar stools. The restaurant is farther back. It's a spacious room with a fireplace and plenty of American West decor, featuring horses, saddles, and riding gear displayed. There's a definite cowboy theme throughout the restaurant. With this being Friday, the fish fry is always our first choice up north. And Newingham's didn't disappoint. I ordered the walleye. My wife got the seafood platter, which consisted of cod, perch, walleye and breaded shrimp. My walleye was delicious. Likewise, my wife loved her selection too. And the service is fast. Newingham's breading is very thin but flavorful. I honestly hate going to places where the fish fry seems to be more breading than fish. This is not the case with Newingham's. Their breading is pretty unique but excellent. We also got some fries and some red potatoes to share. My kids had chicken strips, which were good too. We took a picture by the cowboy wood carving in the front of the restaurant ont he way out. I know we'll be coming back here in August when we do our 2nd trip to the UP.
My family has been coming here for a long time. Previously known as Rollo's, it's been a good stop for Wausaukee visitors for decades. I hope to stop again in August when we're back in the vicinity. Food is normally good and they carry a micro or two from Black Husky Brewery (i.e. micro brew) out of Pembine, WI. Good support of the local micro brews! Keep it up!

You want up north? You got it. I'm more or less in love with this place. Cheap drinks ($4 for a Makers Mark and Coke? This could get messy.) and awesome, friendly service. Janine makes one hell of a bowl of chili, which is good because she suuuuuuuucks at bar dice! They have a mini golf game similar to Golden Tee except better because Golden Tee is awful. Our group of 10 had a great time, partied with some friendly locals and probably kept half of Wausaukee up all night. If I'm ever fortunate enough to find myself back in Wausaukee, I'll definitely be killing it at The Chippewa again.
Only one word describes this bar perfectly: Dive. My wife and I walked in thinking dinner, sat down for two minutes, then got up and walked out. The cigarette smoke was thick enough to cut with a knife. (Yes it's against the law to smoke in bars now, but the folks at this bar don't care too much about the law). If the cigarette smoke wasn't enough to drive us out, the looks we got from the line of old farts at the bar would have done it. It's a dive, but then some people like that sort of thing.
