A surprise find in La Crosse, WI

I was in La Crosse and was told I had to try Freight House. Best advice I have been given in years. The scallops were amazing as was every other dish I tried as we shared plates. If you are in the area you have to go!

Very fast service, the halibut and asparagus were incredible. I enjoyed the fresh fish so much, it was almost too much to eat. Lots of people having a great time.

Wonderful and happy staff. I love the atmosphere. Good service, both in the bar and the restaurant. They often times have live entertainment in the bar. There salad bar is serve yourself and there is a lot of variety. I almost always order the prime rib and it is cooked just the way I like it. My family also loves... More

We had a large business group and they took very good care of us. The fare was upscale yet the prices were reasonable. Not one of us had enough room for dessert and nobody was complaining!

The Freight House is very overrated. Certain staff members are very snooty and payed more attention to other tables rather than ours. We waited for refills numerous times. My husband and I both got a steak. Mine was tiny but tasteful. His was charbroiled black and when he mentioned to the server, the server walked away and didn't say a... More

We had a good night at the Freight House started at the bar listening to a three man band and having some drinks it was nice. Then we were seated and had a great meal (Steak and Lobster) very tasty.

I really enjoy the Freight House. It is darn expensive, but you are getting high quality product. The atmosphere inside is great. Last time, they even had a small acoustic band in the lounge. I usually get the prime rib and my wife gets crab legs. There are certainly cheaper places to get good prime rib, but you will not... More

A bit pricey but the steak and salmon were good. For the price it doesn't seem like there should be a salad bar with limited choices but the scallops appetizer was awesome.

This is the restaurant that our friends like to take us to when we come to La Crosse. The food is good - their special is their prime rib. They also have a variety of fish. You build your own salad at the salad bar - which is always fresh. Nice service.

Classic building with high quality service and food. Go casual or dress for fine dining. Staff is well trained and helpful. Food is excellent and many choices. Well worth the stop.
