This place has great German dishes in addition to steaks and seafood. They also have burgers and sandwiches. German dinners are $15 - $20 and include salad bar.

I loved the friendly atmosphere in this cozy little rural restaurant. I ordered a petite fillet that melted in my mouth. It came with a choice of potato, salad or soup. Just the right amount of food for a meal not too much food like some restaurants give so they can charge you more. I plan to eat there every... More

Dining at Maier's Dorf Haus is an authentic Bavarian experience. The restaurant's decor and atmosphere took me right back to my trip to Germany a few years ago. The food is homemade and served family style. The chicken and swiss steak were out of this world delicious and succulent. The dressing and gravy rivaled my Grandmother's. The best reason to... More

This place is truly a hidden gem, tucked away in the sleepy little town of Roxbury, a short scenic drive north of Middleton. Old-world German decor, authentic German food (as well as traditional supper club fare) and, of course, great German beers on tap. It's very popular with both the locals, as well as out-of-towners - so get there early,... More

The Dorf Haus, located in Roxbury, Wisconsin offers up a fantastic menu of both German food and standard fare of steaks, seafood, and chicken. All are done well, and I have never had a bad meal here. One of the best meals are the Sunday chicken dinner, complete with homemade stuffing, and real mashed potatoes. Can't make it on the... More

We were there for Mother's Day brunch recently. The buffet was nothing unusual; typical salad, turkey, ham, dressing, mashed potatoes, corn, etc. The pastries were nothing special, and the 2 kinds of cakes were so-so. We heard so many wonderful things about this place & were very disappointed.

The Dorf Haus is a traditional supper club with a german flare. It is great to sit down in the bar and have a great old fashioned followed up with their fish fry on Friday night. The fish is great and you can have it with cole slaw or for a little additional, salad bar. You also get the choice... More

First of all, I would like to start by saying I haven't been to a restaurant, or a business for that matter, that had the service that we had, in a long time! Unbelievable! We started by entering and walked to the bar, not sure where the check-in counter was. It was packed! This was at 7:15. When we got... More

We were looking for a fish fry in the Sauk City area and multiple locals recommended the Dorf Haus. All warned to arrive early as it get busy. That is an understatement. The restaurant advertises that they open at 5pm and we arrived at 5:08pm. The parking lots were full and when we checked in with the Hostess, every table... More

A Best of Madison favorite - fish fry - Dorf Haus Roxbury / Prairie du Sac - just a mile off of Hwy 12. The Dorf Haus is also featured in "Wisconsin Supper Clubs". We stopped on a whim on a chilly Friday evening, only a 30 minute wait for our table. Bartenders were friendly as ever, we enjoyed a... More
