Stay away from this place. Patrons are not friendly and you may find yourself on the wrong end of a knife. Plenty of better watering holes in baraboo.;

Came for the ghosts...didn't get to see them. However, we heard wonderful ghost stories from the owner & locals. The ghost bomb was awesome. We had a great time!

This place is easy to pass, but that's the deal with most "gems" of the area which get far less credit than they deserve. I'm from Indiana and recommend this place to everyone. I loved it. I was treated like a friend. The food (I...More
