Will's Northwoods Inn

Escape to the great outdoors Wisconsin-style with your Leinenkugel, Point or Sprecher and shoot the breeze under the watchful eye of the giant moose that stands sentry. Friends meet at picnic tables, tunes float out from the jukebox (Phish and fowl with "Free Bird" represented) and the occasional neighborhood Labrador mingles with the regulars.

As a born-and-bred Wisconsinite, I can say that Will's Northwoods has the home-y feel of a Wisconsin bar, without the overt trappings of a dive bar. Mostly when I want a slice of home, I have to go to a corner dive where the beer selections are kind of sad and the ceiling tiles still stained from the days of smoking indoors. The best part about Will's is the Packers games. The bar is packed with fans just like every Sunday back home, and you can watch the game at several places indoors as well as on the outdoor patio on the big screen.
