Twelve Pines is another place we are "frequent fliers" has just changed ownership & we went there for the first time on our last trip north. We met the new owner, who was very friendly. Our meal of broasted chicken was top shelf. It is Ron's favorite place to go for GREAT broasted chicken. It is a family restaurant with a nice northwoodsy bar on one side. In the summer there is a nice outside patio where they also serve meals.

The Musky Fest 2006 ...
it was a big hit in Chicago!!

Roger and I, together with our friends Bob & Ellie, drove to this unique Bar/Restaurant for the first time. Actually, it was within 5-min. driving distance from our home address. Funny, we never heard about it until I discovered your great website!

To our surprise, it was packed... both rooms, and the street with tents and a rock'n roll band kept everybody jumping! We checked out the friendly atmosphere and inviting interior... the good-feel of the Northwoods could be felt everywhere, and that in the 'Windy City'!

Unfortunately, it was so crowded, we couldn't stay for dinner, but we'll go back to try it out again on a not so popular event date!
