Hands down, this was the finest meal I've had in the 5 years since I moved here. The chicken alfredo was made to order perfect. The steak was heaven on a plate. Our waitress, Melissa was awesome. We ate outdoors by the lake, there was a fire lit ...it was wonderful! Ooooo...did I mention the schaum torte? So good...

Chef Rene's continues to provide consistent food quality, year after year - this is our 10th year dining with them. The Scallops Pernod, Ribeye and Fiddlehead ferns were all outstanding. Thanks Sonja for making our first visit of 2020 a delicious one. Enjoy, we always do.

Excellent fish. I got the all you can eat fish split between fried and baked. Both were pretty good, but I preferred the fried perch. The wait staff was very friendly, and they make a good old fashioned. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Service was very good. Prime rib was definitely more medium rare than medium, but still tasty. Baked potatoes were not hot...turn up that baked potato oven drawer!! Salmon as excellent. Grasshoppers are huge...share them! Will be back.

We went to Mexican night (Tuesdays) and had a great meal. Full of flavor, and nice portion sizes, but I'm saving room for fried ice cream next time.

Excellent waitress. Ordered fish fry half broiled/half fried with potato pancakes. Had to take some home, too much to eat.
Joyce Leander via google.com - Jan 3, 2020
Nice atmosphere, good food; broiled fish was a bit overcooked but rest of dinner was very good. Staff was friendly and accommodating. One big miss is the missing baby changing stations in both the men's and women's restrooms.

Had heard about Chef Rene for some time and never got over to his setup in Timber Ridge. I know now I had made a mistake in the delay. While the facility at the Eagle River Inn fails with it's TV tray sized tables, overdone Northwoods Decor, and general dated feel, it is more than made up for with Chef's stellar menu and outstandin ... read more

Unbelievable food done perfectly! The best food I have had Anywhere in years. Rene has his act down. Cooked perfectly on all 4 different dishes we had at our table. It was my first visit but my wife and I plan on at least a couple of stops there every time we go up North. Spectacular!!
Jim Hewitt via google.com - Oct 21, 2019
The best steak we have had in a long time. Quick and attentive waiter. Price and a charge for the to-go container was the only downside we saw tonight.

Our food and service we received last night were outstanding. We started with great appetizers and finished with very tasteful meals. The Korean ribs were delicious along with everything else. We are so glad we have this great restaurant in the north woods.

Excellent service! Bread was phenomenal. My wife's stroganoff was very good. It's a specialty of the house. My veal saltimbocca was just okay. It was the nightly special. The veal was not very tender. The prosciutto overpowered the veal flavor and added too much saltiness to the dish. Very good wine list. Prices were average. We wil ... read more
