Story
Introduction

I’m simply a 6 foot tall blond who’s not afraid to get a little dirty, I managed to marry an utterly non-hunting musician, an incredibly supportive man who lets me tromp around the woods by myself and go kill big things. He loves to cook which is handy since I DETEST cooking – I kill it, he grills it. It works rather well.

I love to hunt, fish, hike, kayak, and so much more. I own an 1800 pound Percheron named Champ and live for all things outdoors. Everything that’s happened in my life has molded me and made me a better person.

On top of being a published outdoor writer, I’m a professional wedding and portrait photographer (www.zylkaphotography.com) and work a regular 40 hour work week in human resources for the largest Health Care Organization in the Midwest.

Very good, the sandwich was creative, the Mac and cheese was runny but still tasty. I'd definitely come back and try some of the other sandwiches.

Excellent pizza, we had the Fun Guy and the Wild "Pie" and they were amazing! Kindred was an incredible server, the ambiance was great and I highly recommend it!

Pretty unimpressed with the food. Everything was very bland, except the hashbrown casserole which just tasted weird period. Originally the "Blackened Haddock" caught my eye but I just couldn't bring myself to pay $17 for HADDOCK! Instead I had the $17 Fisherman's Platter, the pan fried walleye was good but the deep fried bluegill and deep fried perch was extremely disappointing. They tasted exactly the same: like a flour batter. No seasoning at all. Our waitress was very busy but that's no excuse for poor service. She never volunteered what the soup of the day was, I had to ask what it was when she asked "soup or salad?". I also had to ask "what are my choices?" When she asked "what kind of potato would you like?" She brought my soup and we then waited almost 40 minutes before we were brought our entrees! Pretty disappointed overall.

This is the second time (and the last) we ordered from here. The first time I got very sick. This time we received the wrong order. When we called they offered us 10% off our next order. The food was very bland, and when my husband began eating we found HAIR in the meal. We just threw it all away and re-ordered our dinner from another Chinese restaurant - a very expensive lesson learned. I would definitely NOT recommend this place.

Had a lovely time at the Fireside Campground. Their website does not do it justice. The whole place was very clean, they delivered the firewood right to your site if needed. Ice, snacks, coffee (and filters) etc available in their little onsite store. And if needed, Walmart is only 10 minutes away in Richland Center. The sites were very spacious. I do wish we would've had two picnic tables instead of only one in our group site. But I'm sure if we'd requested it they would've brought one over. The restrooms and shower facilities were extremely clean and they provided a dish washing station which was absolutely awesome for us tent campers! WiFi was available and they had a huge indoor rec area with Foosball, Pool and dart boards. The second night we thought we were in for a sleepless night as there was someone playing music very loud on the other side of the campground. At 11:00pm the owners went over and made sure they turned it down. I'd highly recommend staying here.
