Check out what people have to say about… The Den!

"Wow!" "Innovative good food...!"

Wow! What a perfect addition to Houghton. We live in Milwaukee and have struggled to find innovative good food up here and this hits the nail on the head!

– Elena Rodrigues

"Everything was delicious..."

Shared an amazing meal with friends at The Den. We ordered many small plates including the cheese board, picnic board, and steak bites. We also ordered the ham and cheese sandwich, a couple of duck salads and a bottle of wine. Everything was delicious and paired well – it was a treat to enjoy unique foods/recipes in Houghton, and the small plates were so fun to share. We will be back and can’t wait to try other menu items!
