Editorial Review of Will's Northwoods Inn

Sure, Will's is a neighborhood bar, but there's more style and substance to this corner tavern than most. From the booths that line the wall to the cozy front bar, music that doesn't overwhelm, people that don't overcrowd and lighting that doesn't blind you, Will's is a warm place to knock a few back during the week or on the weekend (chances are on you'll find a seat on any night). Signs, stickers and random artifacts dot the walls (so much so there's not really a lot of information about what bar you're in... unless you check the door on your way in, you'd never know.) Patrons are mostly locals and post-game sports teams (think local softball leagues), and although the bartenders are a bit slower than you'd like at times, no one seems to mind. The beer is plentiful (two long lists of on-tap varieties, including local faves like Goose Island) and the time spent enjoyable. 'Nuff said.
