We came here between games with a couple of hours to burn. Honestly, upon entry, and use of the bathroom, we were quite of the place. The decor is probably original 1950's, and the bathrooms have tile falling off the walls...skeptical. And then...we got outstanding...More

The Owls Nest recently started making their own pizza and it is very good. The sauce is very flavorful and toppings are generous. We will return!

Great place to go for your Friday night fish fry. Be prepared to wait if you get there after 5 PM on Fridays. They have plenty of seating available so the wait won't be too long.

The beer battered fish is the best I've ever had! It is light and not at all greasy. The cole slaw and ranch mashed potatoes were also very good. I come to WI at least once a year to visit family, and we always have...More
