Excellent lunch - don't be put off by the name

We were in La Crosse for the day and wanted a convenient lunch spot near to the riverside. We arrived just before one o'clock and the place was packed with a mix of locals (business people and ladies who lunch) as well as tourists. We went for the express lunch special - soup and salad buffet... read more

We were on our way home from vacation looking for a quick spot to stop for a bite to eat and stumbled across Piggy's. They have an awesome express lunch wich includes 3 different kinds of soup and a huge salad bar. This can be paired up with half a sandwich and was more than enough food for my husband... More

Great food, great service, lovely surroundings, wonderful atmosphere. The soup and salad bar is amazing. Three soups, not one--and one of them was a cold soup, which for me inspires an immediate "yuck" reaction, but the waitress described it as being like a strawberry cranberry smoothie, and she was right--and the fresh blueberries that you could plop on the top...

We love Piggy's and eat there weekly for the soup and salad bar at lunch. The price is reasonable and the service is usually excellent. It a restaurant I always make sure to take my out of town guests to. We will occasionally eat dinner there as well and it is good too, even though the lunch is our favorite!... More

Beautiful building and restaurant. Had a drink at the bar before dinner; the bar is this huge wooden carving with old mirrors. Very rustic and charming. Dinner was equally fantastic. The food is fresh, the fish flown in, and everything made fresh from scratch. I had a salad with a homemade vinaigrette, then a fresh salmon with a creamy risotto,... More

I learned of Piggy's 4 years ago when we were looking at colleges for my daughter and were in town checking out UW LaCrosse. I asked someone at the hotel we were staying at for a recommendation and they told me that hands down, Piggy's was the place to go. So we did! At that time my daughter and I... More

I love Piggy's. The inside has two area: upstairs restaurant dining with an upscale feel and entry level is the Blues Lounge with the access to both the restaurant and special lounge menu. I love the lounge area (dine in or to go). The menu is full of great signature sandwiches that break from the Midwest routine. The lounge can... More
