Open All Year
Many of the hundreds we served over Christmas break asked if we stay open all year. The answer is yes! We thrive during the winter with skiers enjoying world class trails and cyclists returning in the spring for several races hosted at The Rivers Eatery.

Fat Bike Birkie Registration March 5th
It is a privilege for The Rivers Eatery to be a registration site for the Fat Bike Birkie. We've been a big supporter of all of the Birkie events and this one is very important to our area. Fat Bikes and their associated products have been developed by many of our friends and customers and the Birkie stepped up day 1 to recognize the potential of racing on snow with the first Fat Bike Birkie in 2014. Welcome to Cable, we look forward to hosting you. Open for Pizza 3PM to 9PM on Friday March 5th.
Great Fat Bike Routes
Are you looking to log some miles and see the Wisconsin north woods before the Fat Bike Birkie? If you'd like to avoid people there are some amazing 10 - 25 mile loops where you can ride in solitude through our amazing forest. Drop us a note @ email@example.com or stop by and we'd be happy to point you in the right direction. Be sure to visit New Moon Bike and Ski and Riverbrook Bike and Ski in Hayward. These folks ride everyday and outfit hundreds to enjoy the trails.
Thanks for a great Birkie week!
Thanks to the more than one thousand skiers and supporters that found their way to the Rivers Eatery this weekend. We hope you enjoyed the experience. Hats off to our staff for turning out quality food in less than 20 minutes 90% of the weekend. It was a pleasure serving you. See you next year... or maybe at the Fat Bike Birkie, The Mt. Borah Epic, The Hungry Bear 100, The Cheq 100, The Cable Classic or the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival - all in the forest surrounding the lovely village of Cable WI.

Thanks Molly, The Danger Band and Andy Dee
Well now...that was fun :). Thank you to those of you that came early and stayed late. What could be finer than a warm place on a cold night with great friends, stone oven pizza, special drinks ;) and amazing music. Let's do it again soon.
Fat Biking and Ski Paradise
We have about 12 inches of clean snow on the ground and it is a winter wonderland. We should have snow for some time now as temps fall back to normal. Snowshoe, fat bike, ski, hike, snowmobile, ice fish, sled...it's perfect. Enjoy the finest winter conditions in the country then come by for a stone oven pizza and a microbrew. See you soon.
Remember, you don't need groomed trails to ride in the least travelled national forest in the country. We have thousands of miles of forest roads. I recently rode for 32 miles one afternoon and never saw a human being. Stay off designated snowmobile trails. You may ride on multi use forest roads but be aware that snowmobiles can also use those roads and they go fast and don't stop well. Have fun.
Congrats to Ben, Annie and Paige!!! Three of our favorite people, skiers and former employees Annie Hart, Paige Schember and Ben Saxton all qualified for the U23 World Championships in Kazakhstan! Both Annie and Ben were powered by Rivers Eatery pizza before nationals - along with a million calories from other sources. Nonetheless, we take great pride in congratulating these great skiers and role models. Current employees Niki Reker and Scott Harrison also had great weeks at nationals. Eli Hancock, a Cable high school student and Niki both reached the podium at the Sisu Fest in Michigan as well.
Saturday 12- 8
Additional hours during event weeks and for special activities
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives recently showcased breakfast at two of our favorite local restaurants - The Delta Diner in Delta, WI and The Brick House Café in Cable. Both are locally owned and operated by true foodies doing their own version greatness. Stop by. You won't be disappointed.
We opened The Ideal Market and The Rivers Eatery on June 18, 2008.
