Stopped in on a Monday evening to meet friends and dinner. Have been there for their fish fry before and wanted to try something on a different evening. The place was not very busy so only the dining area in the bar was open, which was just fine. A nice fireplace along one wall was inviting. The bartender was very... More

Cotton Exchange has been around a while. A giant, very modernized barn. 2 or 3 dining rooms, bar and a banquet hall. Excellent food and even a drive thru fish fry. Always a good place to go, especially with guests.

I have not been to brunch here in quite some time. They have a new cook since I last dined here. The food was outstanding. Beef shoulder with caramelized onions and Jack Daniels sauce. The tenderness and the taste of the meat was great. The prime rib was tender and flavorful. The french toast (prepared in the kitchen and brought... More

I have been to the Cotton Exchange over the years for a variety of reasons. The family who runs it are really nice and considerate people. I've been for big family events for the Sunday brunch. It's a great value and good food. If you have a larger group, request to be seated in the Silo. It's a great and... More

Nice environment, friendly wait staff, average food that is a bit over priced. However, they do have basic menu options all the way to specialty or unique options to choose from. I enjoyed the catered events but most dinners I left feeling overcharged for the food and not wanting to return anytime soon after. Willing to try again.

We went for Sunday Prime Rib buffet and were amazed at the amount of food. The price was spot on for what we got. Would definitely recommend on a Sunday. Went on a weekday and was not impressed.

This was my first time. It is another one of those places you see for so many years you just wonder why you have never stopped in. The structure stands out as a huge white barn so it is very hard to miss if you are looking for it. This was a couples Sunday and in true Wisconsin fashion anything... More

The Cotton Exchange is the last man standing from the two restaurants owned by the same party, the other being the Cotton Picker, (now closed,...sniff) which was for years a reliable regular fish fry stop. We dined here last Friday with some friends. You can't miss the building, it's a huge white barn on the east side of Hwy 83... More

The restaurant has a rather unique architecture, consisting of large barns and a silo in between. There is no indication that it was really part of a working farm before, rather than constructed for a large restaurant and social functions. We were there on a Friday evening. Although the staff was very friendly, service was rather spotty, with items being... More
