Nice place. It's a renovated dairy barn. I've eaten in the silo room before for a work outing. Recently we joined some friends for Sunday brunch. WOW! The foods in the display were excellent, and if you wanted something else, they make it for you! The bread pudding was out of this world!

Great supper club/ banquet facility. We had dinner there on a Sunday night ( limited menu Sunday's) and were surprisingly pleased. Very clean, updated, and well run. I have a background in the restaurant business, and know how hard it is to run a place this size. The dining rooms, including the bar area are very intimate. I had the... More

Fish fry is pretty good. I like the fact that they have a drive up window. The wait is not to long and you get more than enough food!! Would recommend people to give it a try!!

The waitress was the best part of the meal. My husband's salmon was cold, my daughter french fries were tasteless and she wasn't thrilled with the fish fry. Our cheesy hash browns were like eating cardboard. They were tasteless and we're more like mashed potatoes. My stuffed tilapia tasted good but that too was not hot. I WILL NOT return.

Watch out for the coleslaw. Two times the coleslaw was spoiled. The first time I called and complained and no apology was given or any type of compensation. I went thru again on Jan 6,2017 and again when I brought home the coleslaw it was spoiled. I don't think calling and complaining will do any good. Don' know if I... More

One of my most favorite local restaurants. The food is fantastic, drinks always very good, service great. I prefer the ambiance in the lounge compared to the restaurant.

We live within 2 miles of the restaurant, and have tried it once or twice a year for the last 15 years. Never expect too much, but, figured how can you screw up a fish fry in Wisconsin? Well......Fish portions were small and tasted like "Miss Paul's". the potato pancakes were tasteless and the slaw tasted like sweaty feet. I... More
