We asked, and you answered. Over 1,800 La Crosse County residents and visitors nominated finalists for the Best of La Crosse County 2015, and more than 8,000 participated in the final voting. You weighed in on everything from auto repair to tattoo parlors, and now we have the results. See the full list of winners at http://explorelacrosse.com/bestof.

Here are your picks for Best Rural Bar.

1. Red Pines Bar & Grill

In the contest for Best Rural Bar in La Crosse County, the Red Pines successfully challenged last year’s winner, Alpine Inn, for the top spot. Leo & Leona’s, who came in 3rd last year, moved up to 2nd in 2015, with Alpine taking the 3rd spot. The Red Pines, picturesquely situated on the north shore of Lake Onalaska in Brice Prairie, is a family owned and operated bar and restaurant with strong community ties. Boasting a full menu featuring outstanding pan-fried walleye, daily specials, outdoor seating to enjoy the beautiful view, volleyball courts, and weekly trivia and live music, the Red Pines is the perfect place to spend a summer afternoon (and evening). Visit www.redpinesbarandgrill.com for a full menu, specials info, and calendar of events.
