Great restaurant!

I would consider this the best restaurant for dinner in La Crosse, WI. Great menu with lots of choices. Prices are not cheap but well worth it. There is a salad bar that comes with all the dinners and the food is excellent.

Living in this area, we select the Freight House to celebrate our wedding anniversary each year and have done so for over thirty years. The experience has always been great for us. When ordering, we always select a tossed salad which we are allowed to prepare for ourselves. When going through the salad line, the chefs start grilling our steaks... More

We have eaten here many times. The owners seem very hard working & have been on site durning every visit. The food is consistently delicious. We have never had a bad meal. Our favorites are the filet & lobster, acorn squash, salad bar & grasshopper. Highly recommended!

We enjoyed a very nice meal at the Freight House. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. It is a bit pricey, but I have found that you get what you pay for and the overall experience here was more than worth it. We would return to this restaruant without a second thought.

Fun location inside of an old railroad station. Great stop for couples or business dinners. Lots of room. Good overall menu selection, server local craft beers along with a nice wine selection. They were able to accommodate our party of eighteen, made reservation that morning.

Nice location along the river (can be a bit hard to find). Lots of parking. One of the few fine dining options in LaCrosse. Nice decor; relatively professional wait staff. A bit pricey for LaCrosse, but comparatively worth the price. The host might have dressed up a bit to match the ambience.

My husband eats prime rib when we travel and the Freight House is in his top 5 {easily}. We live about 90 miles away and MUST go there for his birthday. The miracle is-------the prime rib is always tender, large, delicious every time. I myself eat seafood and they have some great, really fresh seafood that I always enjoy. Great... More

Our group of 4 had cocktails and appetizers in the bar on a Friday night. Live music was great, service was perfect, and the apps were good. Dinner was delicious as well, loved the Halibut! The salad bar was ok, would like to have seen more selections there. Service in the dining room was awesome too! It's a bit pricey,... More

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.
