Northwoods Saloon in Crete, Illinois was opened on February 2nd, 1998 with one mission in mind.  To recreate, as best as we could, the feel, the heart, the hospitality and many of the comfort foods like those of our youth at Grandma's table Up North  in  Three Lakes, Wisconsin. 

In 24 years of business we are proud to say we are the

original family that started it all.

During the past year we have made a shift in our

business model into what one might call a Rustic Sports Bar.

As always, we have maintained  the highest priority of

quality foods and service.


Our guiding principal is rooted in Grandpas words many years ago.

”If you are honest, follow the golden rule, and always do your best then everything else will sort out fine”

You can expect nothing less  from all of us in our little “Wisconsin Lodge”.

We'll do our best to make your visit pleasant and memorable.

 Welcome to Northwoods Saloon!
