We dine here about once a month when we are here and the quality is consistently good, the ambiance is wonderful and the staff is great. Salad bar is great with lots of choices and the cuts of meat are excellent. It's good basic steakhouse food and nice fresh seafood. In the autumn the seasonal veg is acorn squash served... More

We took the train to La Crosse and needed somewhere to eat dinner close by the Radisson. We had no car and our 3 & 5 year old grand kids with us. They let me split a meal with the 2 little ones since they don't have a kids menu. They let them each have the salad bar too. My... More

Although not a seafood restaurant, the crab legs at the Freight House are excellent. Always fresh and always good. The Teriyaki steak is superb as well. Great atmosphere in an old train depot.

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
