About Us

Headwaters Restaurant & Tavern was opened in the year 1926.  Terry Freund purchased it in 1996 and is continually improving everything while updating all aspects of Headwaters.  Some of the many changes Terry has made since he took over as owner include:

  • Air Conditioning!!  
  • A backup generator for those stormy nights in the Northwoods; Headwaters can continue to serve even when the power is off in the area.
  • Large river-view deck for outdoor dining
  • Large addition to the non-smoking dining room with a fantastic view of the Manitowish River
  • Second fireplace in the new dining room
  • Five very large TV’s for those favorite sporting events and up-to-date weather information
  • New addition for gaming and new bathrooms
  • Gaming machines and pool table
  • New music system
  • New Happy Hour with several more tap beers available
  • New POS system to serve drinks faster and more accurately; every drink we serve is perfect every time
  • Wheelchair ramp for easy entry for handicapped
  • Wheelchair accessible restroom
  • New parking lot lights so our patrons may safely walk to their vehicles in the evening hours
  • New signs
  • Free wireless internet access via our wireless hot spot.  Provides the fastest internet in the Northwoods.  Why go to the library to surf the internet when you can sit in our non-smoking or smoking areas and be able to enjoy a drink or a meal while surfing the web??  Come for lunch or just coffee, maybe munchies and a drink while you surf free of charge!!

As owner of Headwaters Restaurant & Bar in Boulder Junction, Terry has brought his experience and knowledge from his past business, the “Sky Club” in Plover, Wisconsin; and brought it up into the heart of the Northwoods.  He had a very successful restaurant in Plover; however, after many years, he decided to move up to his favorite vacation destination.  With already owning Headwaters since 1996, he felt that he did not have the time to really put his full expertise towards his ultimate vision of the restaurant while still working full time in his Plover location; after long deliberation, Terry decided that his sons would take over at his Plover restaurant.  This change would allow Terry his undivided attention towards Headwaters Restaurant & Bar.  Terry has left no stone unturned when it comes to looking for ways to improve the Headwaters experience; his hands-on approach dealing with every aspect of the restaurant is his trademark.  That is what has made Terry such a successful restaurateur over the years – dedication to excellence!!
