“Little Irish pub tucked in the heart of Waupaca. Amazingly tasty food and drinks. Classy yet laid back. This is the place I go when I want to dress up a little! Groups or date night. A little more pricy than average, but one of our favorite spots!”

Gift Shop
“Tucked on the outskirts of Waupaca and King, this is an old train station turned into a gift shop, coffee shop, and ice cream parlor. Lots of history and culture to share. Out back, you can walk next to the river under the trees and enjoy peace and quiet. Absolutely beautiful!”
