This was our first time here on a Friday night. There was a 30 minute wait (not bad) but it was exacerbated by cumbersome wait process. First a bartender gave you menus and drinks, then when you were ready to order they called over a waitress who put you on the wait list and wrote down your order. Then when... More

Have been going here for years but quality has declined as well as customer service. Ordered the stuffed tenderloin again but instead of being "melt in my mouth delicious" it was horrible! It tasted like half rotten meat with some strange spice combo to try to hide it. I thought maybe I could be wrong so had another person try... More

Traveling to WI on business this place was recommended by the hotel as a good supper club. It was really just OK. There are better options in the area. The bar seems to be the major draw of this restaurant. Salad bar is mostly iceberg lettuce, and the seafood did not seem to be very fresh. Stick with a steak... More

Bar service exceptional and they make a great old fashioned. Food can be good at times, however I'd suggest having plenty of cocktails so you won't notice the "lack of service" once you finally get seated. My wife's perch dinner was good, however my broiled haddock was poorly prepared and potato salad was missing anything that appeared to be a... More

To be fair, I was only here for lunch...which was average (soup and salad bar). Dinner might be wonderful as is the case with many of the old fashioned supper clubs in Wisconsin but I'm not likely to return for lunch.

This is a happy old-style type of setting. It reminds me of the 50 and 60's era. Large bar, simple seating with diverse American style menu and salad bar. The service has always been extremely friendly. Dick and Joan's is one of the area's landmark restaurants.and our choice for our annual Christmas party.

We have gone to a lot of restaurants, and Dick & Joan's always has the BEST steaks around. Whether we have had the surf and turf, crab legs, broasted chicken, or a delicious tenderloin, it has all been delicious, and the wait staff is always friendly.

We were hoping for a supper club similar to the Black Otter, but that was not possible at this location. The mixed drinks were terrible, the salad bar had slimy cucumbers, and the entrees were mediocre. It was extremely dark, and we felt like we were in a cave. We will continue to drive out of town for a worthwhile... More
