Perfect Wisconsin Supper Club

Love the Friday Fish Fry... but only go if you have the time for a few rounds of perfect Brandy old fashions while you wait for a table. Love the service,

We arrived for the monthly German buffet right at opening per previous reviews mentioning long waits, were greeted and seated immediately and with a smile. All staff were friendly and welcoming. The hall had the feel of an old time German biergarten but the best part of the atmosphere was the three man band playing oompah music. Loved it!! The... More

From Chicago and it is getting harder to find a good German style with authentic cooking. Happened to have a Wisconsin Supper Club book and was passing through the Wisconsin dells area and decided to get off the beaten path. The décor and friendliness did not disappoint with authentic German wood workings, pictures, lamps, etc. We arrived around 3:00pm on... More

Visited Dorf Haus on a Saturday night. They open at 5, we arrived at 5:15, and they were already very busy. There was something going on and there was a full banquet room, but there looked to be several empty tables in the regular dining area. Nonetheless we were told there was a 30 min. wait. 50 minutes later, we... More

Love this small town supper club. Choose from several German menu options or good old American eating all meet your expectations of a great eating experience. Nestled in on the back roads off the beaten path it's worth the visit. We have enjoyed many occasions at this friendly family run business and have never been disappointed. One of a few... More

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.

Thank HOTROD37
