Dorf Haus - celebrating their 5 Best of Madison awards - home town hospitality

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... read 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

My husband and I have been to the Dorf Haus several times. The most recent time we enjoyed a dinner show with our good friends. We all enjoyed our food and the play. I had the German entree complete with red cabbage and spaetzle, It was fantastic. The guys had a stuffed pork chop which was huge. They both said... More

Per reviews on Trip Advisor, we went to the Friday Fish Fry at the Dorf Haus. It was excellent. We arrived at 4:50 and had a 30 minute wait, as we expected. The service was pleasant and helpful in making suggestions. The fritters that came with the meal were excellent. The fish (haddock) was excellent. It came with cole slaw... More

Been to the Dorf Haus several times for their Friday fish fry. Always crowded, even waiting in the bar. Get there early. Even arriving at 5:30, we had to wait 20-30 minutes in the bar. Hard to believe given how small Roxbury is, but it is so well known. This is an old style supper club. Fish fry is very... More

The Dorf Haus in Roxbury Wisconsin is as true to a slice of Midwestern Americana as one can get. With all things Germanic and a supper club feel, this restaurant in a small town serves up a Friday night fish fry that is tops within the state. And..... To top it off, it is all you can eat. Have the... More

Recently visited the Dorf Haus in Sauk for fish fry. I read the reviews and it looked promising. Arrived as soon as they opened at 5pm and was nicely greeted and seated. After that the service went downhill. We watched as other people came in and were waited on and finally someone came and asked us if we had a... More

Prized by locals, the Dorf Haus has an excellent bar and restaurant, and some of the friendliest people you will meet anywhere, from the receptionist, to the bar tender, to your waitress. Munich beer on tap, a well regarded old fashion cocktail, local Wisconsin wines, and authentic German style food.

The Dorf Haus crossed my radar two years ago when my husband and I were looking for a wedding venue - and the Dorf Haus fit the bill perfectly. The Dorf Haus is a nice country drive (~20 minutes) outside of Madison, and just pulling up to the German-style building, you know it's going to be good. Walking in feels... More
