Sunday evening, 6:00pm reservations and at least twenty cars in the gravel parking lot. This is what we call a clue of a great supper club experience. In our group's continuing supper club journey across Dane, Iowa, Jefferson and Dodge counties, Donny's Girl in our opinion is the best to date. Cozy up to the bar before your meal, 3... More

Many times we will order it for carry... More

Restaurant has plenty of parking along the Rock River in Pipersville, just outside Watertown,Wi. Went on St. Patricks day for the traditional food and found all very good. Salad bar was great esp. the spinach salad with bacon dressing. The rooms are cozy but dated which adds to atmosphere. Would go back again as prices are nice and drinks are... More

They also offer specials throughout the week. I believe that they have Prime Rib on Saturdays. They also have a great... More
