We didn't have reservations, but were seated shortly after our friends showed up at 5:45pm on a Saturday night. The food was excellent this time. Waitress was good. Once the waitress came with the bill, the other couple looked it over and paid. The waitress came back to get the payment and we said no change is necessary. I believe... More

Going to Donnys Girl is always a treat. I can not even do justice to the incredible fare that they have. The food is wonderful, the atmosphere is old world Wisconsin Supper Club. Melt in your mouth bread, nice strong mixed drinks, fresh salad bar, fresh prepared steaks, the list is endless. The only complaint that I had, the times... More

What a wonderful surprise! We visited Donny's for the first time because we had heard about it on a radio station. It is a real gem in a small community. Our waitress explained the specials and took our drink order. The salad bar and soup were delicious and had quite a selection including delicious herring. My father in law had... More

Donny's Girl is Pipersville,WI is just what you should expect for the classic Wisconsin 'supper club' experience. Start at the bar with an Old Fashioned. Delicious surf and turf, classic fish fry and steaks highlight the menu. Dinners include fresh bread, soup and all-you-can-eat salad bar. We enjoyed the creamy garlic cheddar spread and Watertown's own chicken liver patè. The... More

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

The evening started out with a rude and unfriendly hostess.Awful start!!,! We had reservations, but when we arrived-she stated bluntly "YOU" don't have reservations. She didn't apologize for her actions. After her deep breath-she did seat us. After we were seated, shortly thereafter another lady came and said we did have reservations but it was not entered in the reservation... More

In Wisconsin we take fish fry very seriously year round. Donny's Girl has one of the best fish fry dinners around. For the price you receive delicious fish and chicken as well as baked beans, rye bread, one of the best tasting potato salads around, delicious coleslaw, french fries, and cranberry sauce. Many times we will order it for carry... More

Turned out she was the previous owner when it was Donny's. Her... 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
