We were able to get a seat on New Year's Eve without a reservation. We entered through the restaurant, not the pub entrance. The dining room was a 2-story octagon with many windows and a wooden ceiling. The shrimp and corn chowder was served with a small shot of sherry. What a great way to start my meal! My husband...

My husband I eat here often. We think the food is great. We love the Friday fish fry....the corn shrimp chowder is delicious! The Wednesday corned beef and cabbage is a real treat. My husband loves the pork chop. The salmon is good too. Great food....interesting fun decor!

Went to dinner there with my 87 year old, widowed neighbor who doesn't get out much. We had a good fish fry dinner and the atmosphere was good. We were done eating and just talking and relaxing when the host came to the table. He didn't say excuse me or any other niceties just came right out with "I don't... More

This is a typical WI bar with an Irish flair. The only place I know in the area with Guiness on tap.

Don't be fooled if you enter the bar first, the eating area in the back has a certain ambience not reflected in the bar. Ambience aside, the food was really great and even though they were short handed, they kept up well. We will definitely be back.

First of all, do not be fooled by Foley's roadhouse look from Route 50. Although the front of the restaurant has the feel of a typical Wisconsin roadhouse bar, the back of the restaurant has more of a garden gazebo atmosphere. Second, the food is definitely several steps above the average. Quality, farm-to-table choices with a definite Irish influence and... More

We usually come here once every year when staying with relatives for drinks after walking about 4 miles. The owner is grouchy and a jerk. Doesn't greet you when you walk in the door. Acts like any special request is a pain in the you know what. They do have good lemon shake ups though. Owner needs to work on... More

My husband and I try out a different fish fry every Friday that we go up to WI. We have driven past Foleys dozens of times but this was our first visit. The restaurant was full at 6 so we sat in the bar area. Their full menu isn't available there, but we came for fish and chips anyway. We... More
