A fantastic old world German restaurant in Roxbury, Wisconsin - Near Sauk City. Authentic German food, beer and service. I have been there many times and each time was great. Try it - you'll like it.

Great evening with 26 members of our family. The service was great and the food excellent. I really enjoyed wandering and checking out the decor. A must return and visit the German specialty menu. Try the Dorf Haus wine, locally made and very good.

I cannot tell you anything about the food as after we were seated on a Wednesday evening at 7:15, no waitstaff or host or manager acknowledged our presence. Several waitstaff attended adjoining diners but not one stopped by our table to indicate that we would soon or whenever get some attention. So after 20 minutes, we got up and headed... More

GREAT German beer on tap. Cheap beer in large steins, icey cold. Taps tasted clean, no tainted sweet old lines. Long wait for dinner on a Friday night but didn't mind a bit when we had such great beer! Nice service, both the staff at the bar and tables knew their stuff. Cute German uniforms on the waitstaff. Had Friday... More

We had a thoroughly great evening at Dorf Haus to celebrate a birthday. Like all Madison area fish fries, Fridays are busy and we knew to expect to wait over an hour in the bar, which we've visited previously. We struck up enjoyable conversations with other guests and with the staff, whose gracious hospitality shines even on the busiest of... More

Thought we would try the Dorf Haus for their Fish Fry and Roasted Turtle (only available during Lent). We had 3 adults and twin toddlers in our party. Despite arriving at 5:20pm (parking was already hard to come by) and putting our names in for a table right away (no reservations are taken unless you have a party of 8... More

Dorf Haus is one of our favorite visits. Tonight we brought along our Wisconsin Supper Club books by Ron Faiola to have Monte and Rebecca sign them. They were busy as always so we started in bar - sampling their "Best of Madison - Old Fashioned" and draught Spaten Oktoberfest. Everyone is always so friendly - the bartenders and patrons... More

We have gone to the Dorf Haus now three times and each time it has been an excellent meal. With a family of 7, it is rare that we find a restaurant that satisfies everyone, this is one such place. If you are looking for authentic German food and beer, this is the place for you!

We had been to the Dorf Haus for parties in their banquet area but had not been to the restaurant for dinner until December 18th 2014. First we stopped by the bar and our friends introduced us to Jimmy who was a very nice guy and a very good bartender our friends frequent this restaurant because it is near their... More
