The Dam Saloon, WI - Well worth the stop at Lock & Dam #5
Located at the base of Lock and Dam #5, there is a 'bar' called the Dam Saloon. There is no sign on the roadway - the entrance into the place is a steep, gravel driveway, littered with huge potholes with no advance warning. There may or may not be an old wooden sign, mostly faded.. and likely on the ground, not on a post for anyone to see from the roadway.
And beware low hanging or awkwardly dangling metal wires that assist in holding the place together. Literally. Watch your step.
As one reviewer wrote: There's enough sea, fishing, and pirate decor to make you think you've been transported into Black Beard's ship. It's a visual onslaught that could easily take hours to fully grasp. Once you have a seat at the bar though, the drinks are strong, the bartenders are friendly and welcoming, and there's always a fun-loving crew out for a good time bellied up next to you. It's a cultural experience.
