good chciken in Minocqua wi. area?

We're headed for the minocqua area in a few weeks and would like to know if there are any good fried chicken places around? I remember reading about a place in the arbor vitae are, but can't find the post. Any help would be much appreciated---thanks!

  1. If I were you, I'd skip Minocqua all together for eating and travel a little further to Boulder Junction and grab dinner at the Sportsman, the best food around that area, and if you are more into the supper club type of food, a bit further north to Presque Isle would be Skyview, the food is always good...

    1. We are staying in Boulder Junction. Do you mean the Outdoorsman, which I understand has new owners and a great chef or maybe the Guides Inn? I've never heard of the sportsman, but maybe it's brand new to the area. We really wanted to find a place that had great fried chicken in the area. Never been to Skyview, thanks for the rec!

        Yes, sorry, it is the Outdoorsman, I make that same mistake all the time. I've never been to the Guides Inn. I also believe that there is a really nice restaurant in Manitowish Waters as well, right on the bridge..I think it's called Michaels? Also, Bents Camp on the way to Land O Lakes is also pretty good, it's more pub fare, but all done pretty well. Wish I knew where you could get the fried chicken, but I always order fish etc..Good Luck!
