My wife and I decided to try something new and we came upon Digger's. The atmosphere was like going back to what a Speakeasy would be like. Prices were a bit high, but the food was good and the service was great.

Digger's is usually consistently good, especially prime rib and seafood; though earlier in February 2015 I got a poor meal....first time out of probably 50 visits. I'd still rate Digger's as in the top three for the greater La Crosse area.

A large group of us went there to celebrate several people's birthdays. We had reservations in the back room so we were by ourselves. The service was great and so was the food. We had taken a birthday cake for the birthday boys. The waiter was very accommodating with plates, extra forks, etc. so we could easily serve the dessert... More

Even though they were completely dead they wouldn't let me order off the dinner menu at the bar. Only sandwiches. I pointed out their was no one there so why not. Bartender wouldn't do it so I left. I was kind of surprised you would think she could have used a tip on such a slow night and I am... More

this would be it. You can imagine him holding court in the far corner. It is like a old family supper club. The food is quite good. Hard to explain but they know how to do it.

Having lived in La Crosse for a few years now, and having never been to Digger's, I had high hopes and eager expectations when we arrived for our 8:30 dinner reservation. We were greeted by a kind staff, a welcoming atmosphere and a secluded, candlelit table near the bar. My husband ordered a Makers Mark Old Fashioned and was extremely... More

We were fortunate that our family whom we were visiting for the holidays suggested meeting for dinner at this restaurant. Each year when we visit we stay in this area. I probably walked past this place may times without noticing it. The area is cute but does have a student focus in the evening with several bars that attract a... More

When you walk up to Digger's Sting it looks a little sketchy! Don't be fooled, it's delicious! My fiancé and I happened upon this restaurant within the first few weeks of us moving here and it has become a favorite of ours. It's pricey but worth it. I highly recommend the filet and then the mushrooms that are on the... More
