Nice place. good food.

You can't go wrong going here. Sometimes they are a bit busy and you have to find your waitress but, this place holds a lot of people. They always have good food and the prices are not bad. Buffets are very good. Nice selection of food. Its worth the wait if you have to.

Our daughter lives in Madison and she always takes us to Dorf Haus for Friday all you can eat fish fry. You have to get there early or it can be a long wait (we waited 1 hour this trip). I usually get full on the fish fry (haddock - same as cod?) which is served with fritters (good with... More

The Dorf Haus is our "special occasion" place. We go here for birthdays and celebrations and just for fun. The food is rich and delicious, and the salad bar is wonderful! I especially love the spinach with hot bacon dressing! Great German fare with some American meals on the menu - I always leave this restaurant satisfied, especially after a... More

Went there for a wedding reception. Very large hall with a bar, outside deck area. Food was very good. Service wasn't particularly good but it was a large wedding. Drinks were cheap and very strong. Seemed to be plenty of parking.

Great Service - Great Fish and all we could eat..w/ Cole Slaw and German Potatoes Salad or French Fries... Arrive early or you'll be waiting...They draw a huge crowd (and for Good reason) Best...

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
