This was our second choice in La Crosse, and I am so thankful the other restaurant was closed! It was a wonderful experience, in both food and service. We walked in on a weeknight without a reservation and were immediately seated. We were quite impressed with the height of the bar and their mirrored liquor shelves. Very fancy. As soon... More

The Freight House is a Lacrosse standard for good food. The prime rib is excellent, and service friendly too!

Ate at the Freighthouse in Lacrosse, WI, last week and the food was great. Had their famous Swordfish. It melted in your mouth!

We had dinner at the Freight House in Lacrosse on a Tuesday evening. Parking lot was packed but we decided to see how long a wait would be. Walked in and the host came right over to us and we were seated immediately. The cocktail waitress came right away and took our drink order and after she brought the drinks... More

This was a quick walk from the Radisson Hotel where we were staying. We took the river walk up to the end and then sauntered through the garden and then on to the restaurant. I had the Halibut and the husband had the swordfish. With a salad and a side it was actually way too much to eat for one... More

What a great place for a lovely evening meal, get a table near a window and watch what everything about a river town is about, from luxury yachts to homemade houseboats to 1000 foot long barges to paddle wheel steamers, everything that is americana river travel

Intimate but relaxed atmosphere. Great for any occasion - formal or casual. Our favorite place for our anniversary.

Billy was as attentive a waiter as one could want. He was efficient, charming, and recommended delicious entrees. Lives up to its reputation. The manager was appreciative of praise for his staff and also gave them kudos. It was a great last night on our vacation to really treat ourselves before heading home. (Only problem was that they couldn't get... More

This is a cool place, no doubt. The fish ordered by myself and my companion was delicious, and I probably wouldn't have found the food so pricey if the atmosphere had matched the meal and the attentive server. Wanting a less formal feeling, we ate in the lounge. There were two women seated beside us drinking. A man who was... More

I don't know how it was possible, but my food was even better than the last time I ate at The FreightHouse. I was greeted by Jon, the hardworking owner, as I entered the building. Next, I was greeted by name by numerous thoughtful employees. I had an excellent glass of red wine with a steamed artichoke in the bar... More
