On a recent night out, my husband and I chose the Freighthouse. We had heard great things and were not disappointed. The staff, especially our waiter, were all very friendly and the food was delicious. Very happy with our night out.

The Freighthouse has fabulous food, and great service. It's within walking distance from the Grandstay hotel....a bonus if you're staying there! Live music at night, we didn't stay out that late.

It was really busy, so I should cut them some slack but it wasn't worth the wait. We waited for 2 HOURS when we were told it would only be between an hour and an hour and a half. We were really ticked when a family came in who knew the host and got a table no more than 5... More

One of La Crosse, WI's favorite dining spots for great food and atmosphere for a special night out or just to come hear the music and have a drink expecially on weekends.

So they are very friendly, helpful and fun. I love the building. Fireplace blazing in the bar on a winter's night and great entertainment is half the experience. I... More

A unique and casual setting in an old railroad building. Tom knows how to do it right. Simply the worlds finest prime rib and king crab. This unique place offers fine food and oftentimes entertainment at it's finest. Do not miss this place if you are local or just visiting.🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠
