Dorf Haus!

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.

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

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
