Most Flavorful & Creative Cuisine
in the Wisconsin Northwoods
Casual gourmet dining at its finest. The Rookery’s ever-changing menu features weekly fresh fish specials, beef & bison steak, specialty salads, housemade soups, and other creative dishes incorporating fresh seasonal ingredients from local producers. Including some of the best vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options you’ll find anywhere. Our full bar offers a great selection of regional microbrews, premium liquor, and more than three dozen fine wines.
We believe you’ll find our cuisine to be second to none in the Cable/Hayward area. In fact, many of our guests from much larger communities with dozens of great restaurants tell us we’re their favorite anywhere. In addition to our TripAdvisor #1 ranking we’re also the only local restaurant to be AAA Three Diamond Approved. Plus we’re Travel Green Wisconsin certified.
But it’s not just exceptional food that has earned the Rookery a reputation as one of the most distinctive restaurants in northern Wisconsin. The stunning oversized nature photography prints on canvas that grace the walls of the restaurant lend a unique aura of beauty and serenity to your dining experience.
And after a delectable dinner why worry about driving somewhere else to spend the night? Instead feel free to polish off that wonderful bottle of wine. Knowing you can simply walk upstairs to one of the finest guest rooms in the area.
The Rookery and Cable Nature Lodge are located just seven miles east of Cable, on County Hwy M in the heart of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
