"This is such a fun trip on the chain. Dressing up like a pirate is so much fun. The Steves are such great hosts, you will never find anything else this fun in Eagle River. Love, love love them pirates!"

"Our family visits the Minocqua/Eagle River area every summer and we always make sure Pirates Hideaway is one of our stops. This year was as enjoyable as ever. It was a nice, relaxing tour of the chain of lakes. We will definitely return again next summer!"

"Where do I even start! My girlfriends and I were in town for my bachelorette party, and this bar was at the top of my list of places to visit when we were visiting Eagle River for the weekend. The staff was so nice, and they had a band playing. We got there at about 10:45 PM, and they closed at 11:00 PM - but ended up staying open and taking song requests until midnight! Make this a place to stop for a drink or two if you're visiting Eagle River!'
