Tuesday, May 22, 2018 | by Ben Dryden |


SHELL LAKE — “The 715” - previously known as Becky’s Food and Spirits - is set to open in a few weeks and will be holding a Hiring Event this Thursday, May 24, 2018, from 11a to 5p, located at 294 Industrial Blvd in Shell Lake. 

“We are hiring for all positions: management, chefs, line cooks servers, bartenders, wait staff, & dishwashers,” said Josh Rhy, the man behind the soon-to-be-open “715” Food & Spirits restaurant.

Josh, who currently lives in River Falls along with his wife Amber and their 2-year-old daughter, has strong ties to our community and has a passion for food.

“We have a cabin near Spooner as well as family members that have had great restaurants in the Spooner area for years,” Josh said, adding that “food has been a passion of mine my whole life and have always wanted a restaurant of my own. With the encouragement and support from my wife, this dream is quickly turning into reality.”

The reason for the name "The 715", according to Josh, is becuase it stands for the local and upper-midwest lifestyle

“Lakes, boating, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, ATV riding, football, family, friends; these are all passions of mine so I’m opening a place to embrace the 715 lifestyles. I feel ‘everything is better in the 715’, so that’s the theme.”

But he is not just slapping a new name & logo on the place and calling-it-good.

“‘The 715’ will have great tasting lunch specials - made quickly”. Weekday happy hour specials and specialty drinks are also planned.  

The menu will also see an overhaul, however, Josh was very hush-hush on those details. He did say that “The 715” will feature: Specialty Burgers and Sandwiches, Home Made Soups, BBQ Ribs, Broasted Chicken, and of course a Salad Bar.  

“Hand-made flavorful food,” Josh said passionaltly, "will be my focus."

The “715” is expected to be open on June 13th.
