The Turk's is definitely a grand old restaurant. While some might choose to spend their money elsewhere, those "in the know" understand that you can't rush perfection and that the Turks has some of the best food in town.

Yes, Marge, the original owner's daughter IS getting up in age. And yes, this is probably the reason for the issues that occur. Yet, there is something endearing about this ancient woman holding on to her father's legacy.

One word describes the attitude one needs to have to dine at the Turk's. RELAX. If you want to receive your food in a speedy fashion, do not go to the Turk's. While there are few occasions where food is delivered in a relatively speedy fashion, this is not the norm. Chill out and enjoy some conversation with your dining companions. Wander around the overgrown grounds in the back. Check out the tzotchkes on the walls and shelves and ceilings and...you get the picture.

The Turk's has some offerings for children, but it is not really a restaurant for kids. The offerings are few and the wait is to long for the average child up to age 12.

The steaks are absolutely amazing. Shish kebob is fabulous. You have to try the rice pilaf and have some of the homemade pickles. For an appetizer, try the bjork....a hot, ooey, gooey cheese that is wrapped in layers of phyllo dough. The baklava is amazingly good as well.

The problem with the Turk's is the slow service and the slow kitchen. If Marge would teach other people how to cook the way she does and just choose the steaks, the Turk's would still be in it's heyday. Unfortunately she wants to cook everything and, like you would expect from an 80-mid 90 year old woman, it's a bit slow. Especially when the place gets busy, which it does.

That being said, it IS a place to visit as it evokes the grandeur of the old time supper clubs. And it IS a place to visit for fantastic food. Just don't plan on being served fast and you will have a great dining experience!

Seems odd, a Turkish Steakhouse, but is really good! The Inn is located off Hwy 63 and is located away from the hubbub of the Hayward crowd. The staff is friendly and warm. Redommended,

I have been eating at Turks since 1968. The food is splendid. Sometimes it takes time to make good food, so make sure you have plenty. Order the Cheese Borek at the bar. Try the Shish Ke Bob, or any of the great steaks cooked by Marge. Relax and "Don't worry 'bout." The french fries are the best in Wisconsin, enjoy real pilaf, and taste the Turkish pickles. I never miss an opportunity to dine at Turk's Inn.

Pros: The food!

Cons: It takes time...cash or check only...no credit card.
