Food was very good, French onion soup best I’ve ever had. Steak was perfect
Just a nice easy dinner, but live band Ike Arumba was great. Food was outstanding m service great, drinks quick and good, yet they were packed! Great job Joe, Robin, Mel! And Macy. More...
Really good food.
Great food and drinks great place to eat
True Wisconsin club with lots of personality, history, and good food. Would drive this way again just to stop there!
Can't be beat! And they have great live music every weekend!
We love this great find. Live music every weekend and the food is perfection. Melanie is the sweetest owner and she is always there. If you truly enjoy actual fine dining, this place is not the typical Wisconsin supper club, you won't be disappointed. More...
I love classic's "The Mob" was great last nite as always
Favorite place with good food and waitresses
always an awesome dining experience
Have been vacationing at Shawano Lake my whole life but had not been to Classics until this month. As a vegetarian, I don’t eat out as much as I’d like to. I loved the hummus & pita appetizer and found the spinach salad with raspberry & poppy seeds to be fresh & delicious. Although the bar was crowded, we didn’t wait long for a dining table for four on a Friday night. I am so happy to discover this gem on the North Shore. Need to add that the service was outstanding! Very attentive to everyone’s needs/wishes. A+++ More...
Great Happy. Everyone friendly
Classics is awesome from the atmosphere, food, beverages, servers and music! This place is great come for an awesome meal and stay for the live music!
Our favorite place! Good food always! Best service.
Excellent food & cozy atmosphere. Friendly people.
Food and service was excellent. Emily (our server) was wonderful. We will request her as our server next time. When we visit the area again we will definitely eat there again.
Great food, really good old fashioned, good place overall!
Love this place. Great food, friendly staff and great live music.
First timers tonight, and we'll be back! Great cocktails that we've never seen served so quickly. Outstanding food. Steaks, seafood and all the fixings were outstanding.
If you like the 50s, 60s, and 70s, you will love this place.
We love the place they treat us well and they have very good food and drinks. Mel , Mle are great people
Food, cocktails, & service were great
We went out last Friday night. Because of the holiday weekend most places were busy and Classics was packed. Despite the huge crowd,the hostess went out of her way to make sure we were taken care of while we waited!! The food and drinks were awesome but I was so impressed that the staff treats everyone like they are special!! Can’t wait to go back!! More...
Pasquinell Anita Samuelson
love the place.. the music the food the people everything abt it is awesome
Always great food and good music.
Great owners, great food, great staff, and if you enjoy live music i believe every fri and sat there is a live band
This place is super cool, great classic rock decor and memorabilia and the food looked delicious!
What a fun experience! And a great meal too. We will be going back!
Best food I've ever had and the bands are always amazing. If you haven't been to classics it's a must for sure!!!!
This place is everything you want from a Wisconsin supper club! We went at happy hour (4-6) and enjoyed the $2 old fashions, of which they had a great variety. We were going to eat in the bar, but glad we didn't- there is a fancy dining room in back with white linen tablecloths - you'd never expect that from the bar! We both got fish & chips, but I substituted fries for my chips. The potato chips were homemade, as well as the fries ( both great) and the fish was the best fish fry we've had yet ( and we've had a lot of fish fries). It was more than we could eat, but they offer an even bigger version with soup & salad! We really enjoyed it and we will definitely be going back! More...
Great drinks, great food, great staff!
fabulous food and wonderful people!
Cold beer and the service was top knotch.
Some of the best food in Shawano county!!
Shawano is so lucky to have Classics. The cocktails are great, the bartenders are friendly, and the music is always good. It’s as good as any “big city bar” and it certainly has a whole lotta soul. An evening spent at Classics is always one well spent. More...
Great place to meet friends
great place to eat, dance, drink great atmosphere great service. the owner Robin she is such a wonderful person she always puts her customers first and they're always right.
Love this place! Atmosphere is a little sketchy at first glance. But then you put it all together with old school music decor to include a record lined hall that takes you to the dinning room. Bartenders are always nice and very efficient at keeping drinks going. The menus is just not a typical Wisconsin supper club. Ahi tuna appetizer was hands down the best appetizer I ever had. The specials are always innovative and exciting. They have bands on the weekends ranging from blues to rock. I give it 5 stars because there isn’t 6! More...
Food is excellent and the manager is wonderful lady. Service is second to none. Very good.
Drinks and food was excellent. Get alot of food for the great price. We ate Fettuccine Alfredo, and Perch Plate.
Awesome food and atmosphere with excellent service
The food is amazing and the staff is wonderful as well! I recommend trying the brisket sandwich and homemade fries! The best sandwich I’ve ever had. Absolutely delicious! Will definitely be going back again. More...

A great place we have been frequenting the last 12 yrs.Super place to meet family and friends.
Great food and drink...lots of history here. 1950s Packers hang out.
Where you can get great food, drinks and entertainment all in the same place!
Good food. Sometimes a wait for food
Great staff excellent muddled old fashions
Friendly employees make you feel right at home in the very casual old style rock and roll atmosphere with DVD music of the classic rockers, sometimes live music, always great drinks, and really good food at affordable prices. Love this place!
It was very nice
They have great specials, make strong drinks, and the management works hard to make people happy. They always have music either live or playing on TVs throughout the bar and there is no jukebox, so you don't have to worry about someone elses questionable selections. Their French Fries are hand cut thick, browned just right and are a must eat. The clam chowder is outstanding, it has the taste of the ocean and is filled with clams. The burger special is a great patty with real cheddar cheese. Give this place a shot! More...
Very good food and live bands every weekend lovely and friendly people
Great food, great service, kid friendly, kid and senior menu.
Mary Jane Sanchez
Fell in love with this place the moment I walked in.
My favorite place to eat in Schawano. Very good food. Love the videos of bands playing in the bar area.
The programmed Animation
Great place to eat and enjoy live music on Fridays. It's a sit down though so dinner may take an hour or so making it food for a dinner date or business dinner so you can have time to talk. Owners are active with the business and customers. It's a very nice and friendly place to hang out. More...
I love this place, one of my favorite places to eat!
Very romantic and cute
Joe Du Chesne
Best supper club food around the lake, along with live music every weekend!!

The most fun in Shawano county!
Blake And Joanne Jones
Drinks are good the beer is cold and they have great food.
Always great food. There on St Patrick's Day - Best corned beef, cabbage, and potatoes I've ever had!
This little placed tucked away on the north side of Shawano Lake is a rare find. Eclectic art paying homage to rock and roll everywhere you look. If you want to watch sports, this is NOT where you want to go. However, if you want excellent food worthy of any "foodie's" journals, you've cone across nirvana. In addition to fanatic chef creations you can treat yourself to a handcrafted Wisconsin Old Fashion or any of their other feats of mixology. More...
Went for fish and old fashioned on Friday. Good food, good drinks, GREAT PRICE!
Best old fashion ever and the atmosphere is excellent too
I had the pleasure of tagging along with the Bobby Blues Tortured Soul Band to Classic's in Shawano on (7/28/18)... Classic's ~What a treat!! Sooooo sooo friendly ~ the food rocks.... Prime rib sammiches to die for! Thank you! If you ever get a chance to stop in, scope out their kickass dance floor, completely made of album covers...Thank you, Classic's! U rock \m/ Kirsten More...
Very good food.

Clark Vander Heiden
Great steaks and good drinks
Lisa M Steevens
Great staff... awesome food... great atmosphere... and the cocktails... so good!!!! Would go back for sure!!!
Fabulous restaurant with awesome decor. The best home made old fashioneds. Prime rib is delicious
Great food and drinks! We were there Saturday night and they had a really good band playing too!!
Menu has many healthy choices that you don't typically find on Shawano Lake. They have a great happy hour throughout the year. Nice atmosphere, live music can be a hit or miss. You can eat at the bar or be seated in a much quieter area. On a busy night the regulars get the VIP treatment whereas newcomers have to wait for much longer to be served. More...
Cool people who love music and make some tasty food! I love performing here!
I love everything they serve! Especially seafood and the wine � pairings.
Food was excellent
It is an incredible deal and excellent food and drink!
Great food, friendly staff, excellent service.
French onion soup, spinach salad with hot bacon vinaigrette dressing, and a steak is one of the best meals God created, and you can get that here. 10/10
Great menu, drinks and service with a cool vibe. We had several choices and recommendations, but we were so impressed, an out of town all ladies motorcycle group, that we went back two nights in a row...and were not disappointed!!
Always good vibes. Drinks. Food
Great happy hour deal: $2.00 Old Fashion's.
Amazing all the way around!!!
Neat bar and resident with a cool music theme.
Julie Van Dyck
Great food, music related atmosphere
As always, the best!
Call ahead for reservations for quicker seating, but the Food is always taste buds tantalizing, mouth watering good, weekends with Live music and great atmosphere with alcoholic beverages and great service
Live music friday and Saturday
Grate entertainment here.
Great place! decent prices, the local band was playing some great folk/country covers. Pool table and a good laid back crowd.
Good food, good drinks, good times.
Always great food. Try the cheese and toast appetizer. Eat at the bar if you don't want to wait!
An all ladies motorcycle group from various Wisconsin counties were provided several dining recommendations for the Shawano area, and we tried 3 others before arriving at Classics on a Monday night in mid July. We were so impressed by the food, service and adult beverages that we received at Classics that went back with another group Tuesday night...and were not disappointed!! Between us we sampled every appetizer (ahi tuna with a house slaw was my fave!) along with steak (cooked to a medium rare perfection), salmon, a tasty chicken & pasta dish, and a slow cooked brisket sandwich worthy of a 100 mile trip. While all the food and bevs were flowing, we were happily entertained by the large screen TVs playing an Eric Clapton concert followed by Fleetwood Mac! The second night's entertainment was live - a local with a terrible singing voice and a slightly less annoying organ - not for everyone, but enjoyable in a vacationy way!Looking forward to another visit during snowmobile season and hoping that their spinach & raspberry salad with homemade dressing, a couple of "true" old fashions, and a mound of that fabulous slaw await! More...
Food and service were awesome! Defininety recommend
One of the restraunts that will never lose its class charm history and feel. Fantastic food prepared to perfection. Great staff. Amazing drinks! Super atmosphere in general. Like wine do ya? Go to a wine pairing dinner and feast like a king or queen. Can't speak more highly of Classic's More...
My wife and I bought a place in the Shawano area three years ago. Classic's quickly became our weekend evening "go to" place. We haven't been to all the area restaurants as of yet but of those we have visited Classic's seems to be the "fine dining" establishment in the area. There is a quiet dining area for that romantic/date night type evening while the main bar is often bustling with activity.Probably my wifes favorite part of Classic's are the local bands/musicians brought in every Friday & Saturday night starting around 8:30 - 9:00. Very rarely is there a cover charge and they bring in different genres of music every weekend. We so enjoy getting away from the kids for a few hours to listen to excellent musicians from Northeast Wisconsin. Classic's is locally owned and operated. The staff are always cheery and take the time to say hello. It's obvious they take great pride in customer service. Classic's is probably one of the more expensive dining options for the area but it's certainly not out of line. We more often go for the drinks & music but on those visits where we've had dinner we've never had a bad meal. Our experiences have ranged from steaks, Friday fish & just a plain old burger. While the music is what my wife most enjoys I'm somewhat partial to the happy hour (4p - 6p), $2 hand muddled old fashioneds. Such a deal. There's been many an afternoon where casual conversation has been struck up with complete strangers.If you are staying at one of the local campgrounds or are in the area looking for that place to go, Classic's is most definitely worthy of checking out. More...
Great Food, Great Folks, Great Atmosphere, Great Music. Worth the trip
The beef medallions were super delicious. Great atmosphere! Great martinis!
They have a great menu and a great bar menu.Your dinner also comes with a free drink, and you have to try their old fashions, one of the best around.
I think it's best Restaurant on the lake. Great food and entertainment. Very friendly. I love them all. And of course great spirits.
My first time there tonight!!! Fantastic drinks, Fantastic Food...Be back VERY soon!!
Consistently delicious food and drinks! I've been a customer for several years, it's my go-to place for a great meal and entertainment. Ginny, Berry Lake
The food was great and the service was fantastic. We brought 3 little ones with us and they spilled twice...... ugh! Not just our waitress but another and the hostess graciously took care of us. When we're back in this neighborhood we won't forget that. We'd definitely come back and we recommend you try it. More...
Every time I come here I try to order something new on the menu, and I am NEVER disappointed! I am absolutely obsessed with their bacon wrapped scallops covered in cherry sauce.
The food was outstanding! Very nice place for dinner or just to stop in for a drink.
April Andrews Heller
I may be partial since we were the band last night, but the wait staff and patrons are awesome! My first time there (even tho I live on Bonduel), I will certainly be coming back!
Our first time & it was very good. Friendly service & the food was tasty .
My favorite restaurant, wish I could be there more often..Live in Port Washington...
great food and great service! Definitely will be back again!
Michelle Hedtke Virtues
Greatest old fashions!! Greatest food!! Friendly family owned supper club with lots of history & a music lover's paradise.
Wonderful place! Friendly folks, excellent service, and the food is INCREDIBLE! Steaks, burgers, both fantastic. But the Pan Seared Tuna...that was my favorite. I'll definitely be coming back, and bringing friends. More...
My wife and I had dinner here last night and I was quite impressed. Her perch was among the best she's had and I really enjoyed the blackened walleye. Oh, did I mention $3 old fashioneds?! Wow. Service was excellent and the bar looked like fun, too. I will definitely return when back in the area. More...
My absolute favorite place.
Fantastic food and bartenders are awesome great service
Tom and Jeanine Sachs
Love this place. Great prices on food and drinks. Bartenders are very good.
Brady's Septic Service
Had the pleasure of attending this month's Wine Pairing Dinner with a friend of mine. We have never experienced such delicious food and wine! We were amazed the entire time! Shawano is truly blessed to have a restaurant of such superior quality. Chef Nikki is an artist! The food, along with the wine that it was paired with, was absolutely outstanding!! I always recommend Classics, but will also now be telling everyone about the Wine Pairing Dinners. Thank you so much to the ladies at Classics! ---Andriea More...
HERMAN the GERMAN
It's called classics for a reason. Has a great towny old school vibe. Not the typical trendy millenial skinny jeans hipster type hangout in bigger towns. Great drinks and atmosphere. Food is good also. More...
Fantastic food!! Wonderful service! I will be back with more friends.
Anne Gear Sulskis
One of our favorite places to eat, have drinks, visit with friends and listen to great local music!
Melissa Minsky Lance
My husband and I stopped in for dinner. It was our 25th anniversary. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. When we told them we were there for our anniversary, they came out with a gift for us. We will definitely be back! More...
I always have the best service here. They have the best drinks in the area, nowhere else do I get such tasty martinis. The food is fabulous too.
Always my favorite place for music and drinks. Can't wait to be back soon!!
Judy Ruff Kesler
Classic's has great food! No one should miss going to one of the wine dinners.
This place knocks it out of the park on food, beverages and music. Love love love. Musicians - this is the best place to play. Sweet people, in-house system and sound guy, great comp including some food and drinks...All around a perfect stop on tour, or just make the trip. We drive up from Iowa just to play Classics sometimes! More...
THE BEST sauteed grilled shrimp I've ever tasted. Excellent fresh as can be salads. Good BBQ ribs. Wonderful service. Outstanding bartender. Tuesday night pianoman, Fred, will take you on a rock-and-roll trip down Memory Lane. Classic's is definitely at the top of Shawano Lake's dining experiences. More...
This place continues to impress. Consistent and great food. The bar staff hustles all night to make drinks so great job John and Mel. Authentic old fashioneds and mojitos. Good people and good music. I have no complaints. Just don't come here expecting quiet with the rock and roll theme. More...
Love this Place! Great Food and friendly staff! Five Stars*****
Linda Lepow Strommen
Everything on the menu is delicious and the presentation is lovely. The musical atmosphere is suitable to all tastes. Bartenders Mel and John are awesome, Chef Nicky is a creative pro and Robin, the owner is soooo nice.
Cindy Price LiVigni
Staff is great. Friendly, and swift. Atmosphere is great as well! Can't ever go wrong with live music! The owners are all fantastic women.
My all time favorite restaurant in Shawano! Great food, great music and great people!
Grayling D. Pingel
Excellent food! Live music and friendly fun people!
Called ahead to see if they had crab legs. It isn't normally on their menu, but they were on special for New Years a week ago. Melanie said she would check and see And call us back. She returned the call so we figured we would give this place a try since our favorite place in Shawano burnt down. My wife had the king crab legs and said they were awesome. I had the ribs. The full rack is a big order. The staff was great. You can eat either in the bar or the dining room. The bar is old school rock and roll themed and the dining area is like a fine supper club Great experience and we will have to come back on a Saturday and try the prime rib some time. More...
Amazing steaks! Love the music! Miss this place a ton will be visiting next time I'm in WI!
Classics hosted our Christmas Party this year and everything was wonderful! Great food, excellent service and special attention to detail! Thank you for a great night!
My wife has family in Shawano so we've bounced around on visits to local bars, but Classics has quickly become our favorite. It's an impressive establishment in general, not just for a small town, and has a great vintage feel to it. The bar speaks to the good old times of Rock and Roll, Bluegrass, Blues, and Jazz. There's some great memorabilia hanging on the walls from artist sketches, famous photos, "classic" guitars, and more. They have a nice wraparound bar, and several different sections of the place to walk around in and look at all the fun entertainment. My favorite part is the several large TVs and projection screen that have a DVD video concert playing when there isn't a live band in the restaurant itself. Everytime I've come (and taste is obviously relative), they've had a band I really enjoy playing on the videos or a live band that is doing a fantastic job. And because of the solid accoustics, it sounds like a concert regardless of which is happening.The food menu is impressive, both in variety/quality and unfortunately in price. Pretty steep for Shawano with a lot of dishes clocking in between $15-30, but from what I've had you at least get your money's worth in the taste department. My Prime Rib (14oz) was very scrumptious with a delicious seasoning on the fries, and the accompanying Chicken Dumpling soup was decent too. Overall I enjoyed my wife's food a little better, she got the $10.95 Prime Rib sandwhich special which was just about as hearty in size but easier on the wallet and even tastier when finely sliced. There were quite a few steaks and pastas on the menu that require a return visit, but overall the food is worth exploring since they have a full restaurant attached to the bar and cater to higher end fare rather than the stock pub food served by many neighbors.Service is friendly; on several visits we've had some lengthy conversations with bartenders and waitstaff and the mood is always positive. Never an excessively long wait for food or drinks, even when they've been bustling, and while the food is a little pricey the drinks are cheap. Usually $3-4 or less for a beer or mixed drink and almost always something on special. Classics is for sure worthy of its title, make it a stop on your list when traveling norte More...
Really good food!!!! The service was very good considering they were horribly understaffed. A couple of waitresses must not have shown up. This older lady served all the tables and we all felt bad for her, but she did her best. Shame on the people who didn't show up or the manager who did not put more people on the schedule. The place was packed and every worker we saw was busting their butt. Everybody in our group loved their dinner. New york strip, pork and apple filet, walleye, and prime rib. All done perfectly. Great place and we will likely be back. More...
Excellent food and entertainment! This is a great place to stop and take-in all the rock'n'roll atmosphere. The album dance floor is exceptional and the hall-of-records is a great place to see some of the older vinyl records. You won't find this anywhere!!Also, it's opened year round and makes a great stop in the winter months to soak in some warm atmosphere and friendly people!Don't pass it by on your next trip in Wisconsin ! More...
Excellent food and great Old Fashions
Chelsea Stock Gilling
Fantastic food! Great atmosphere!
Our favorite when we visit our cottage. Eat in the bar and enjoy the ambiance and great music. The ahi tuna appetizer is my favorite and hubby always gets a steaks. Always friendly staff and customers. More...
Katie Wussow Bussian
Love this restaurant! Special the creamy cesear salad. Yumm. I also like the homemade old fashions!
Love this place and its staff! Whether I've been there to watch live music and have a bite and a drink, or for a romantic, outstanding dinner for two, Classic's is always worth the drive from Green Bay. Awesome rock'n'roll decorations, too! More...
It is NOT the worst place ever! Some people don't have any taste! I love you guys!!
Awesome food great staff and live music
Classic's ahi tuna is so wonderful my mouth is watery just seeing the photo. I love everything about this place - food, atmosphere, live music, AWESOME owners and bartenders.
Good food. EXPENSIVE. But good. Great bar to go to oh Fri and sat nites for good bands.
I love Classics hand muddled old fashions. Head out to Classics for something just a little bit different and delicious. They have an incredible chef who makes the best sorbet and desserts. If you can make it out for a wine pairing at the end of the month, it will be an unforgettable night for your taste buds. Winners: salmon and couscous. Walleye specials. Make sure you finish with flourless chocolate cake when available. I hate to give away this secret gem, but it's too wonderful not to share. More...
