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.

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

The food and service are always first rate at the Dorf Haus. My favorite is the Friday night fish! My kids love the homemade fritters that they serve on Fridays. I used to cook at the Dorf Haus, and I can attest to the fact that all the staff (the kitchen, dining room, and bar) are like a big family,... More

Now that I live back in Wisconsin it's the place to go when family get's together. The fish fry on Fridays, chicken or prime rib on Saturdays always great. The... More

My husband and I met friends at the Dorf Haus for the famous Bavarian Smorgasbord, held every first Monday of the month. (First and third in the summer and fall) We had a wonderful evening! I’ve traveled to Germany and experienced German hospitality first hand. I’m always searching for “The German Experience” closer to home. The Dorf Haus takes a... More
