St. Germain Brewing Company 

Good times are on tap at this establishment that serves a full flight of fresh and delicious offerings in St. Germain. Conveniently located right in town, the brewery delivers American and Bavarian classics, including traditional German sausages, zesty pizza and savory burgers. The brewery develops its beers right on site and expansion plans are in the works. The house beers are fresh and inventive. The selection rotates, but you’ll find some great options like the ”St. G Pinecone Porter,” and the “Found Lake IPA.”

Mar-Li’s Bar

North of St. Germain, you’ll find a historic restaurant that delivers great food, cocktails, and plenty of Northwoods hospitality. You have a lot of delicious and reasonable dining options at Mar-Li’s, including a wonderful fish fry, delicious broasted chicken, savory BBQ ribs and tender ribeye steak. The bar and dining area can accommodate large groups and they welcome families and groups of friends. On warm days you may want to enjoy a meal outside – there’s a pleasant outdoor dining area.

Fibber’s Restaurant & Bar

Perched on the scenic north shore of Big St. Germain Lake, Fibber’s is a classic Northwoods dining destination that’s worth seeking out. Enjoy a cold beverage or a light meal at the beautiful bar or enjoy a relaxing meal – the restaurant serves a great Friday night fish fry, prime rib, seafood and more. You may not want to leave this welcoming lakeside spot and you don’t have to: the property is also a resort, and the owner, Rob Manthei, is an accomplished and professional fishing guide. It’s no fib: you’ll want to visit this classic establishment when you’re in St. Germain!

The Timber’s Bar & Grill

Tucked into the forest on Little St. Germain lake, this nostalgic restaurant is the kind of establishment that delivers the full Northwoods dining experience. Built a century ago as the taproom and recreation hall for Elbert’s Resort, Timbers delivers plenty of old-school character, as well as favorites like pizza, burgers, cheese curds, and more. While there’s parking for your car, some diners choose to arrive other ways. The restaurant is right off the bike trail and in the summer and fall, some patrons arrive by boat – the restaurant is located on West Bay (at Elbert’s Resort). In the winter, it’s a snowmobile hotspot, pit-stop #3 on the Bo-Boen Snowmobile Club’s trail system.

Pitlik’s Sand Beach Resort & Restaurant

Located on the Sugar Camp Chain of five lakes, this historic property dates to 1928 and it serves delicious food with a big side of Northwoods beauty. The expansive resort boasts 1,500 feet of shoreline and its comfortable cabins make any stay memorable. Everyone is welcome to dinner at the rustic main lodge restaurant and taproom and it’s the perfect place to relax with a good meal. Savor a Friday night “shore lunch” fish fry, or enjoy one of the platters – the only question: do you go for Joe’s Amazing BBQ ribs or “Sunday Fried Chicken?” Whatever you order will be great. Just be sure to save room for an ice cream drink!
