The Thirsty Whale offers a first handview of the local water ski shows or other boaters cruising by. No matter if you arrive by land or by lake you can try a tasty char-grilled burger or enjoy a Friday Fish Fry on the porch. Stop in on Friday or Saturday night and dance the night away at Minocqua's top night spot.
was very dissapointed! they had a chef from florida the 2007 season. he was excellent. we returned the 2008 season the food was terrible. we inquired why the food was not the same? the answer was that they had let him go. what a waste. he was the best they had. inquiring around town the gossip was their sous cook was jealous of him and caused him to leave. what a shame because this season was the pits. they should of let the sous cook go. to the owner we will not be back to your restaurant next season. don't waste your money. they are overpriced and not quality. if anyone knowes where chef rik is write this site. he is quality. and you will not be sorry where ever he is at. the man can cook.
We were just at the Thirsty Whale on Sat. November 8th, 2008....and had a BLAST! Annette and Ryan were absolutely wonderful.....not to mention Ryan is VERY easy on the eyes (and I told him that as well). He made us some fun shots and totally entertained us! Be warned Ryan, Doris is coming back in a year!! THANKS from the Lodi Chix!
Stopped by with my kids while snowmobiling. It is a bar and restaurant, and yet I was yelled at rudely by the bartender for bringing my 12 and 13 year old boys in out of the cold. There are plenty of places up north that are family friendly - this is not one of them. If you wish to be yelled at in front of your kids at by some redneck loser tending bar, this is where you want to go.
My friends and I spend a week in Minocqua every summer and look forward to spending time at the Thirsty Whale. We love the atmoshphere and of course the bartenders Ryan and Steve!!!! This year we even celebrated our girlfriend's bachelorette party there! The bands are always awesome and Deanne runs a great business, we think she's just great ! See you next year!
It took them over an hour to sit us, when we finally sit down we learn they were out of the special (the reason we came.) Our waitress was kind but we felt rushed the whole time. The food was average and over priced for the quality. Needless to say we are not returning.
