Rookery Pub Fine Dining

Cable Natural History Museum

Dinner Lecture

Thursday, December 11

Black Robes and the Medicine Wheel: 
Religion & Clash of Cultures in Early Wisconsin History
(Adult Naturalist Program)


David Saetre, campus minister for Northland College, will explore the engagement of European Christians with indigenous Native communities from the early fur trade through the mid-19th century treaties. From the missionary efforts of the Jesuits, to the later engagements of Franciscans and Protestants, that history informs our own efforts to understand and appreciate diverse worldviews and the way communities succeed or fail to learn from one another. 


Meet at 5:30 PM at the Rookery for the presentation. Stay afterwards for optional dinner and conversation. Register in advance by calling the Cable Natural History Museum at 715-798-3890. $5 member/$10 non-member.



New Year's Surf & Turf Feast
"I'm ba-ack!"

Time to Book For New Year's Eve 


The Rookery's signature five course feast has become an annual New Year's Eve tradition for many. If you've joined us in the past we hope to welcome you back this year. If you haven't, this would be a great year to start.


Because once again the Rookery will be flying in fresh (meaning still live!) Maine lobster. And once again those tasty crustaceans not only will be a featured component of our surf and turf main course. They'll also serve the leading role in our special housemade lobster bisque, the incredible mouthwatering delight many guests tell us is what brings them back year after year.


Plus, for the second consecutive year Madeline Island guitar virtuoso Ric Gillman will be performing at the Rookery this New Year's Eve. Why would you wanna be anywhere else? Call now for preferred seating times!
