The South Shore is located large older cream brick building right on the main drag. They were brewing the day I was there, so I could smell it before I could see it.

When you enter you see the tanks to your right (behind glass), a secondary bar to your left, the hostess station in front of you and the dining room on your far right.

The dining room has very high ceilings and a 2nd level balcony over the right hand portion. This is nonsmoking.

Unfortunately, they still allow smoking in the bar (at least until next July when the whole state goes smoke free). I hate to see brewpubs allow smoking as it kills your ability to really taste and smell their beers.

It is decorated in kind of a old school Northwood’s saloon motif. There is green paint, green carpeting, green table tops & green chair seat covers. There is also a lot of oak, large mirrors and outdoor stuff on the wall (snow shoes, fishing nets, prints, etc.).

Service started very slow, but once they finally got to me, they were quick and friendly.

Food was good with a pretty wide-ranging menu. I can recommend the beer cheese soup made with their brown ale. Prices may seem a tad high for the area, but the quality was good and the place was crowded, so I guess everyone thought it was fair.

Only 6 beers on tap 4 regulars (cream ale, Brown ale, a stout and a honey pilsner) seasonals included a German hefe and a pale ale. My cream ale was pretty bland even given the style.

I went out of my way for a visit; I really can't recommends that you do the same. However in your in the area, perhaps doing the waterfall tour at Hurley or visiting the Apostle Islands off Bay Field it is well worth a stop.
