What to Eat in Rhinelander, WI

Hello again!

I’m so excited to share with you a day of eating in Rhinelander, Wisconsin! I’m going to share with you the best places for 1) Coffee 2) Lunch 3) Dinner.

First, I want to share with you the best coffee in Rhinelander (IMO): Briar House! Not only is it an adorable coffee shop, it’s also the CUTEST gift shop. I had to stop myself from buying everything in sight (especially the hiking stickers).

I ordered a frozen peppermint/vanilla coffee and even though it was 10 degrees, it was BOMB. I would highly recommend stopping in if you’re in the area!



For lunch, we stopped at Dawn’s Lakeside Restaurant for lunch. The place itself had some amazing cabin vibes.


AND THE PIZZA WAS LITERALLY TO DIE FOR. I am not exaggerating, this was some of the best pizza I’ve ever had and I KNOW PIZZA (I worked in a pizza restaurant for 5 years).


I mean, LOOK AT THAT CHEESE PULL. (all the heart eyes)


And the view was pretty great, too!


Finally, we stopped for dinner at The Al Gen Dinner Club. As you can see from the pictures, this place had the best up-north woodsy vibes.


And look how amazing their Christmas decorations were!


Great value. Great service. Great atmosphere.

Solid 10/10. 


Of course, I only had one weekend in Rhinelander, so please let me know of any other amazing places to eat that I may not have been able to visit!
