Pogreba offers an unexpectedly wonderful dining experience!

No one would ever expect a restaurant in a residential area to deliver the best steak ever. But that's just what I got at Pogreba's. The atmosphere is… Well, let's just say that they tried. If they would take that chef, and that waitress, and that DELICIOUS piece of meat, and put them in a... read more

Surprising gem, hidden in north La Crosse in an old church. You enter a rather unassuming addition and after hanging up your coat, enter the bar area. Just beyond that is the dining room, with spectacular stained windows left from the church. The menu is limited, but don't let that fool you. The selections are first class and innovative. I...

Very consistent, always fabulous steak. Really a hidden gem of a restaurant on La Crosse's North Side.

My wife and I dined here on Valentine's Day. This was our third time at Pogreba and we have been very happy every time. We particularly like the appetizers and I like the lamb.

We had our company holiday party at Pogreba's recently and I would highly recommend them to everyone. We had approximately 40 people in our group and had reserved the upper level which has a bar as well. Josh and Kaley planned everything perfectly. We even had narrowed down the choices and they made a personal menu just for us! Spectacular... More

Pogreba's is La Crosse's hidden gem! Located in a renovated church and tucked away in the North Side neighborhood, Pogreba's offers the perfect atmosphere for date nights and family fun. Make sure to get there early for cocktails at the bar...Eric is the best bartender in town! Not only does he know how to make the perfect cosmo, but he's... More

I ate here for the rehearsal dinner for my friend's wedding. The décor is inviting and romantic. The food was very good. I had salmon which was perfectly cooked. Our server had personality and made our evening enjoyable. Can't speak to pricing since our meal was provided by the bride and groom, but would eat here again.

I had the filet, medium rare, served off menu with cabinet reduction instead of blue cheese. Just outstanding. She had langoustine and scallops with risotto. Also outstanding. Probably the best his/her's combination in a single dining we have had. Not surprisingly we eat there 5 to 7 times a year.

Was here on 10/10/14. My dad and I had babyback ribs and they were not good. Pay good money for food you expect it to be good. Were tough and almost inedible. Mom had a tenderloin and I tasted it and it was good. Sister had a pasta dish and said it was ok. Service was good. For the price... More

La Crosse has many very good restaurants and being a resident of Onalaska, I get the opportunity to experience them all. If you're in the area and want to entertain someplace nice where the food and service are very good then Pogreba's should be on your list. Atmosphere is leans a bit to the formal side (wouldn't necessarily want to... More
