Breakfast

Enjoy a quality meal at Friendship House Family Restaurant, a family-owned restaurant that’s been serving up tasty meals since 2006. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served all day every day, and the expansive menu offers everything from skillets to omelets to stuffed French toast for breakfast lovers.

Another family-owned hotspot, R&T’s Dinky Diner serves up made-from-scratch breakfast and lunch seven days a week (they’re open until 8pm serving fish fry on Fridays) and is a popular spot thanks to its hearty portions.

Lunch

Find deli specialties and much more at CT’s Deli in the heart of downtown.  If you’re eating in or grabbing a bite to go, you can order hot and cold sandwiches—the brisket is a must-try—as well as paninis and salads. CT’s is also a full-service deli where you can pick up deli meats, cheeses, oils, and snacks.

Crimson Curry Café is a popular stop for coffee, tea and other coffee drinks, but they also offer a tasty lunch menu that includes Thai and Indian specials like tikka masala and naan wraps, as well as classics like grilled cheese, Reubens and salads.

Happy hour

Raise a glass at Catalyst Wine in downtown Rhinelander. This cute wine bar has a great atmosphere and offers wines by the glass or bottle, as well as charcuterie plates, bruschetta, fondue (cheese and chocolate options) and more.

Beer lovers should stop by the tap room at Rhinelander Brewing Company to try one of the historic brewery’s Northwoods-themed ales and lagers or Rhinelander Café & Pub’s taproom, which features 24 beers on tap, including craft beers from Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota.

Dinner

For the full Northwoods supper club experience, head to the Fireside Supper Club, just west of downtown Rhinelander on the shores of Townline Lake. You’ll enjoy delicious steaks, seafood and ribs in an intimate, cabin-like setting, and the Fireside also offers supper club staples like its Friday fish fry and Saturday prime rib. Save some room after dinner for a true supper club favorite—the Fireside has a delicious selection of ice cream drinks.

Add a little spice to your dinner at Casa Mexicana, which has been serving locals and visitors in Rhinelander for more than 20 years. Located on Lincoln Avenue on the east side of Rhinelander, Casa Mexicana serves up favorites like street tacos, chimichangas, burritos and enchiladas. (Don’t forget to try one of their house margaritas!)
