Not sure where to begin! Jeff and Joy were better hosts than we could have ever imagined. Right from the beginning, they were accommodating and just wanted our day to be perfect for us. Any questions that we had throughout the year and a half engagement were answered in a days’ time. They dealt with my panic of weather worry and every other issue that came to my mind, very calmly and always had a solution/answer. There weren’t many “no’s” to our requests, as they just kept reiterating that they can accommodate and it was our day. Joy was practically a wedding planner and amazing at what she does. From helping us choose the vendors and color linens, to helping us solve a BIG issue 2 days before the wedding with our flowers. The service the night of the wedding was spot on and they knew how to keep the night flowing. At the end of the night, the staff helped (did most of it) clean up our decorations and such, so it made for an easy and quick departure. We couldn’t have asked for a better vendor and location for our wedding. We would recommend them to anyone wanting their wedding in the north woods.Sent on 08/13/2019

Couldn't have asked for a better venue!
We could not have had a better experience at the Whitetail for our reception venue. Jeff and Joy are true professionals and made everything so easy for us! They were incredibly organized and very responsive. Our buffet style food was delicious and we heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests. Our out of town guests loved the up north feel of the venue as well as the large beautiful bar and amazing staff. We would recommend this venue to absolutely everyone. Thank you so much Jeff and Joy!Sent on 05/20/2019

The Whitetail Inn was an incredible place to have our wedding reception. They went above and beyond our expectations to make our day absolutely perfect.

Truly there is no restaurant/venue that can even compare to the remarkable attentiveness, constant care and professionalism that Jeff and Joy Sievert did for our wedding. They made our wedding (from first meeting to clean up) an enjoyable experience. Never once did we feel stressed, worried or nervous about the venue and all they offered.Sent on 03/09/2018
The Whitetail Inn is an absolutely stunning building, but with even more beautiful people that work for it. The owners, Jeff and Joy Sievert, are true professionals and care about every detail as much as we did. They went above and beyond for us. From helping us pick out the delicious food (we did chicken and prime rib carving station) to helping us figure out our beverage costs, to scheduling our outside vendors, etc. everything went off without a hitch. The servers, bartenders and staff are absolutely remarkable. They are all experienced, professional and made the evening run incredibly smooth.
All in all, we don’t have a single complaint to say about the Whitetail Inn. I have professional experience in the restaurant industry, and I can honestly say that the Whitetail Inn is the absolute best for helping anyone with their wedding. No one does it better.
Thank you again Jeff and Joy and the entire Whitetail Inn staff for making our wedding the best day of our lives.

One of the best venues in the Northwoods. Joy was amazing and thought of so many things that we would have never thought of. Food was unbelievable. We had so many of our guests comment on how great the food was. Very professional. Thank you for everything you did to make the day special.Sent on 12/30/2017

The Whitetail Inn was perfect from the first day we called them to see if the date was available.Sent on 11/05/2017
Jeff and Joy not only had the date available, but were as excited for the event and the special day as we were. The planning was flawless and they were very open to our ideas and they brought superb suggestions along the way. We were in such a comfortable place knowing that they were taking care of our reception. Their special accommodations for our band and decoration vendor exceeds anything we have witnessed before.
Now let’s talk about the day- WOW!!
They exceeded our expectations in every way.
From the morning during set up, Joy had everything perfect and Jeff was so relaxed for the execution of the event. When we arrived after the ceremony most of our 175 guests were there and the Whitetail Inn staff was spot on taking care of our family and friends. Our family and friends could not say enough about the food and service that the Whitetail Inn offered.
It was truly a PERFECT AND UNBELIEVABLE evening that we could have only dreamed of.
As they say, “funny thing about dreams, sometimes you get to live them out”. Jeff and Joy at the Whitetail Inn made that happen.
We could not have been happier.
We highly recommend the Whitetail Inn for your special occasion. Please do not hesitate to call them, you will not be disappointed.
THANK YOU SO MUCH JEFF AND JOY AT THE WHITETAIL INN.

The Whitetail Inn was the perfect venue for our September Northwoods wedding. Jeff and Joy went above and beyond to make sure all the details were absolutely perfect. They offered many suggestions during our planning process that were very helpful. All the bartenders and servers were also very friendly and helpful. The food was great and a good time was had by all! Make sure to reserve the guest house. It is amazing!Sent on 12/30/2017

If you are looking for the perfect wedding venue, look no further. Whether you are having your ceremony and reception at the Whitetail or just your reception, you will not be disappointed. Jeff and Joy were the most friendliest people to work with who will go that extra mile to make sure your wedding day is perfect. The entire staff at the Whitetail will make you feel like you have been friends forever and treat your guests like they are their own family. I would not have chosen any other place for our wedding!Sent on 09/11/2017

Jeff and Joy and there amazing staff were very helpful and accommodating thorough out the whole wedding process. They made us feel comfortable having a "destination" wedding here! We received nothing but compliments on the venue as well as food all night. We would recommend this venue to anyone!Sent on 08/15/2017

My husband and I chose this venue for the atmosphere, food options and quality, professionalism of the owners, Jeff and Joy. We chose the plated meal options and all of our guests raved about them! Joy will make sure she knows where you want everything, when you want it there, and how you want it to look! We had quite a few children and they also accommodated for children's meals. I wouldn't call it a downfall, but one thing that you might want to know before you book, is that they require a minimum payment of 200 meals.Sent on 08/05/2017

We chose to have our wedding reception at Whitetail because we absolutely loved the food and the beautiful venue. The waitstaff is very friendly, professional and accommodating. The owners Jeff and Joy Sievert were wonderful to work and plan with. Anytime I had a question Joy was there willing to give me her time to help me out! She really put our minds at ease with the table and room layout. Jeff as always cooked up a delicious menu for our guests. Dinner was hot and served right on time. I'm so thrilled with the whole process and how our special day turned out. We owe many thanks to Jeff and Joy for providing not only excellent food and service but providing us with a perfect wedding :). Thank you Jeff and Joy for making our special day into a spectacular one!!!!Sent on 11/28/2016

The Whitetail Inn is a 5 star experience. From the initial planning to the final venue, proprietors Jeff and Joy are top notched. Many of our guests traveled from the east coast and commented that the wedding experience was outstanding.Sent on 06/04/2016

Jeff and Joy at White Tail Inn are truly incredible to work with - we loved their calm, friendly, capable manner and felt like we were in great hands 100% of the time. They listened to and implemented our ideas (such as serving pizza at 10pm, letting us provide personalized Chex mix to guests during cocktail hour, etc). They also suggested ideas that we and our guests loved (such as different table arrangement options; where certain items should go such as guestbook, gifts, name cards, etc; centerpiece placement). We received multiple compliments during and after our event about how friendly and quick staff was - both bartenders and servers. We also received a LOT of compliments from guests about how amazing the food was! We served sun dried tomato and artichoke pasta, honey glazed salmon, and mozerella and asparagus wrapped chicken. They also provide each person with healthy sized portions. They have a great space for a dance floor located right next to the bar, so it was easy for guests to grab a drink and keep the dance floor packed. And finally, needless to say...the venue itself is GORGEOUS. It totally captures the "northwoods" or "up north" atmosphere - so many photo opts for bridal party and guests alike! Truly...it was an amazing experience. We are so grateful for Jeff and Joy and the White Tail Inn staff!Sent on 10/23/2015

We had our wedding reception at the Whitetail Inn in August of 2015. We could not have been happier with the venue and the service that Jeff and Joy (and staff) provided. Jeff and Joy were very responsive to our numerous planning e mails, and did everything to help us make our day perfect. They were very flexible and willing to meet all of our wants/needs. All of our guests that I spoke to following the wedding day loved their meals and were very impressed with the facility. We had 240 total guests and there was still plenty of space to move around during dinner. I would definitely recommend the Whitetail Inn to anyone interested in having their wedding in the Northwoods!Sent on 09/02/2015

The venue itself is just splendid and if you would like to have your guests experience the "beauty" of the northwoods in an amazing and unforgettable way this would be where you should host your event. It was especially impressive for those who were from out of state and had never been up to the northwoods before. What a great impression and very unforgettable.Sent on 07/24/2015
The owners, Jeff and Joy Sievert went out of their way to accommodate our needs and to help us in any way. They, also, wanted US to enjoy our own party. It was perfect from the venue to the food and to the staff ... everything!

Jeff and Joy were wonderful to work with! The Whitetail Inn is a beautiful place for a wedding. I have had many guests tell us how delicious the food was and how pleasant the waitstaff and bartenders were. If I had it to do all over again, I would definitely choose the Whitetail Inn.Sent on 06/22/2015
