We serve 14 stone oven pizzas, salads, appetizers and a great selection of craft beers and wines in an old warehouse building.  We have seating for 100 indoors and seating for 60 outdoors weather permitting.    We are a fast casual environment.  We look forward to serving you soon.

Discover Wisconsin is Back!

Join us on January 23 at The Rivers Eatery for the big reveal of Discover Wisconsin’s new episode featuring the recreational opportunities in our area.  We don’t know the details – its a reveal after all – but we believe the show will feature the trails in our area and all the ways we enjoy them.  It is possible that pizza and beers will be on display as well.  Join us for $3 wines and some snacks.  We have been told as many as 50 people show up for these events… come on now.  Let’s show them how The Rivers Eatery celebrates!  The fun begins at 5 PM and the screening begins at 6.  We are certain the stars of the show will be in attendance because the stars are you!  Thank you to those that made this show happen including the Birkie, Cable Area Chamber, Bayfield County and others to be identified at the event.

Happy 2019!

2018 continued a 10 year trend of steady growth.  This year in particular seems to have been extra special.  Sometimes simplicity is a good thing.  We offer beer, wine, pizza, salad and some appetizers in a hundred year old building in a town of 800.  This year we added Tilly’s Pies to our business.  Pie brings a whole other type of experience – and we like it!  Tilly’s Pies exceeded our expectations and we have plans to double pie production for 2019.  Thank you for sharing your friends and family with us.  In case we haven’t said it enough it is a privilege to serve you.

A Word on the Fire

December 6th was a sad day on the corner of County Road M and Highway 63.  Several years of planning, collaboration and craftsmanship went up in flames.  What was envisioned to be an iconic establishment serving the north woods now looks like a burned out ruin and soon will be leveled for safety reasons.

What comes next has yet to be determined.  What I know and can share is that the energy and commitment that created the vision and the structure in the first place still exists.  A fire won’t stifle that.

We, like you, had visions of sitting at the bar, on the deck or on the patio celebrating the beauty of the forest lakes and streams with our friends and family.  But that was our selfish side.  It wasn’t us that put our personal lives on hold or spent a small fortune of our own money to give such a beautiful and selfless gift to this town.

Our thoughts are with the owners and the craftsman and consultants that made this a priority in their lives for the good of others this holiday season.

Winter Developments at Rivers

  • Online gift certificates.  Rivers and Tilly’s now offer online gift certificates.  You have all been very patient tracking us down over the years to buy gift certificates for friends and family.  Now you can purchase them online!  See below.
  • Coming soon!  Online Pie orders!  When we return, you will be able to order your pie online.  We’re very excited about year 2 in the pie shop.  As you have seen, we are pretty deliberate.  We want to be sure our pies are of the quality we want and our business model is sustainable before we make a lot of promises.  We are becoming quite confident in our process and consistency.  Look for variable pricing, greater convenience and a “pie it forward” board in 2019!
  • A new series of events!  You’ll need to add some new punches to your dance card this year.  We are working on a new series of events that we hope will enhance your appreciation for the beautiful world we live in.  Stay tuned.
