Aurora Borealis Restaurant was founded by childhood friends and Manitowish Waters natives Kevin Theisen and Joel Schroeter in the summer of 2011. Located in the former site of Pine Barron Restaurant, Aurora Borealis is dedicated to bringing handmade contemporary American cuisine to Northern Wisconsin. The restaurant’s name was inspired by the Northern Lights Bar, the original resident of the building in the 1950’s. Our twist on an old name reflects our goal to produce unique contemporary cuisine while remaining true to the history and traditions of the area. Our menu changes seasonally and features top quality beef, duck, and lamb as well as fresh fish and shellfish. The kitchen prides itself in hand-making everything on the menu from stocks and sauces to pasta and desserts from scratch, the way it should be done. We work tirelessly to bring you the freshest, most delicious food the area has to offer.
To accompany our amazing food, we have a handpicked selection of fine wines for everyone from the casual wine drinker to the seasoned wine enthusiast. We also feature a selection of rotating craft beers as well as unique spirits and specialty cocktails. To complete the bar experience, we have a specially designed bar menu that is served from 5pm to 10:30 pm nightly that is sure to surprise and impress.
Please come visit us at Aurora Borealis Restaurant in downtown Manitowish Waters for a dining experience that may change what you think about Northwoods cuisine.
