Good Meal

Enjoyed 10% off construction discount based on past review. Hostess was to busy talking with colleague when we walked in to acknowledge us. A few minutes later she finished her conversation and was able to seat us. Not a great first impression. Luckily the cocktail server and our regular server... read more

What a great place to eat. Steak/seafood menu was fantastic and the food was even better. They had no ribeye on the menu!! Got filet and crab legs which were both great and could not believe the portions. They had a great wine list too. The service was great - we had a party of about 15. Nice bar as... More

Loved the historic atmosphere. The food was good, but I was disappointed with the a la carte menu. The salad bar was not so great and oddly located next to chef grilling area.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner with her elderly parents to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our waiter, Brian, provided great service and a very nice table. While the downtown road construction required extra time to travel in and out, it was worth it. The restaurant had a half page ad in the recent Sunday Tribune that provided us... More

Entree excellent, salad bar a joke, very busy place with servers geared to getting people in and out. Kind of a mass appeal place, not fine dining. Would go back but with a fun group of friends or family, not as a couple.

The restaurant has an assortment of tables and booths which makes the large building feel cozy. There are historic photos on the wall depicting the previous and original life of the freight house which are really fun and interesting. On several occasions, we have had great quality steaks, done to perfection....and the prime rib is awesome! The bar is really... More

We try to dine once a month at the Freighthouse at least once a month because the quality and consistency of the dinners are the hallmark here. There are many good restaurants in the La Crosse area, some very good, but this one is the template for excellence. The owners, Tommy Olson and his business partner, are hands on coparticipants...

We went here last weekend to celebrate our anniversary. My husband had the charbroiled filet and I had the sautéed shrimp. We both felt our entrees were perfectly prepared. In fact my husband thought his steak was one of the best he has ever had. We also tried the artichoke for an appetizer. It came with two sauces and the... More
