We stopped for lunch at Wiltse's Brew Pub and Family Restaurant on a recent excursion along the shores of Lake Huron.

The atmosphere is best described as "up north". It's an amalgamation of log cabin, diner, and breweriana that's mixed with small town charm.

Service was solid. We were seated in a booth in the main dining room. The waitress was a professional diner type (and I don't mean that in a bad way). She knew 1/2 the patrons by name and what they wanted before they sat. She told us the specials, took our orders, and brought them to us quickly.

The food menu was actually quite large. They serve breakfast early, then sandwiches and dinners afterwords. Your standard pub fare was available along with steaks, pasta, and barbeque. I had the fish sandwich which was beer battered and served with fries. One of my friends had the pulled pork served with fries and slaw, sauce on the side. I believe it was real Q, not just roasted pork in sauce.

Wiltse's served five of their own brews along with a couple from Bell's and the usual suspects. I had the Blue Ox Oatmeal Stout and my pal had the Oscoda Rare IPA. The IPA is was a little hazy, but otherwise good. The stout was solid, enough that I had a second.

We enjoyed our lunch. I probably wouldn't make a special trip just to go, but if you're heading north along Lake Huron stop in.

I'll admit, the whole event may have been elevated by the fact that I was in good spirits before I even ordered my first brew, but I'll drop in again, in the Spring, when the Salmon make their run up the Au Sable.

A hip brewpub/family restaurant near the shores of lake Huron. Atmosphere is typical of the finer "up north" establishments. Wood and dim lighting comfortably combined to make those frigid Winter evenings a bit more tolerable. The walls and ceilings lined with the regular patron's personal mugs. Which is a very cool idea if you're not worried that your buddy may be dickin' your mug when you're not around. The beer was pretty tasty given the somewhat isolated location. My choice was the creamy, roasty stout, though the amber was nearly as good. About four or five standards and a special--that was tapped out before I got there, of course. Some guest taps, standard light yellow beers and a full bar.

But for the food. A grilled Panino slathered in a herbed olive oil and filled with baked apples, walnuts, smoked cheddar and tomatoes. World class? Not really, but when dining out in the Northwoods one is accustomed to having the choice between meatloaf and fried Walleye.

On the whole, a quality experience.
