OUR HISTORY

Birch’s Restaurant and Bar has officially moved to the Lake!

The iconic building was first home to the Hanson House in the 1960’s and then became Billy’s Lighthouse, a favorite spot for many inhabitants of Long Lake and nearby western suburbs. It had sat abandoned since 2006, until its revival from local restaurateur Burton Joseph and local brewmaster Brennan Greene.

Birch’s on the Lake Brewhouse & Supper Club is a one-stop shop for sensational experiences for guests of all kinds. From families looking to grab a bite to eat before a sporting event, to catered private parties for business professionals, the varied menu can satisfy all tastes. Diners can enjoy spectacular fare, ranging from Wisconsin-style supperclub favorites to upscale surf and turf. Guests of the brewhouse can enjoy the experimental American-style craft beers while looking out over Long Lake. Birch’s on the Lake brings a new level of indulgence to any patron; delicious food, cold brews and spectacular views.

The atmosphere at Birch’s on the Lake is unmatched by any in the Western suburbs. With a piano lounge that operates on the weekends, guests can enjoy an infusion of Sinatra into their dining experience matched with a classic specialty cocktail, or opt for a more casual evening out with friends in the brewpub. Whatever it may be, Birch’s on the Lake can provide it.
