Great place to celebrate a birthday!

The service was great. It was a birthday luncheon for several people. We brought in a birthday cake from home. The waitress was very happy to bring dessert plates and help serve the cake. The food was great. . The atmoshere is good.

Classic steak joint with great service and well prepared food. We enjoyed soup of the day, caesar salads, steaks, seafood. Jukebox is free. Be sure to get reservations!

While the menu may be limited, the food is amazing. My husband and other friends have ordered a steak or prime rib and have raved about it. I always order a seafood entree (usually shrimp) because it's always amazing and never disappoints me. Food is definitely worth the price.

We went on a Saturday night, we had reservations, and it was fantastic. We had the prime rib and shrimp and they were both prepared exactly how we wanted them. I would highly recommend them.

Some former students and myself headed to Digger's on the biggest snowstorm this year for the LaCrosse area. It was warm and inviting in their restaurant. The waitstaff was pleasant. I had asked our waitress if she could take a photo for us before we left. She agreed and later came to tell us that she had a huge table... More

Old time charm, based on "The Sting". Sean was our waiter and really took care of us. Definitely worth a great dinner and experience. Too bad the cook won't give out the soup recipe. Steak and fish were perfect. Even the scallops.

We had the prime rib and the broiled shrimp -- both were very good. The shrimp was served with melted butter and was not overdone, as often happens. The smashed garlic potatoes tasted wonderful, and the broccoli was cooked perfectly -- not soft at all. The restaurant is divided into smaller rooms/sections, so it has that old restaurant feel --...

Diggers never disappoints unless you are trying to walk in. They pretty much require dinner reservations but believe me when you eat there you will not be disappointed. Their steaks and seafood are top notch and cooked perfectly. My current favorite is a Hawaiian fish called Nairagi, which is striped Marlin. it is so delicious!! I have always enjoyed the... More

This is my new favorite place for a romantic dinner in LaCrosse! It doesn't look like much on the outside but it fills up fast and serves amazing food! The free bread is delicious, our steaks were done to perfection and the atmosphere was romantic but not "stuffy." Highly recommended!
