Had heard great things about this restaurant. Went this evening [Thursday]. Were given a table upstairs, one of ten, nobody else up there. After taking our drink order 6 other groups arrived. Comfortable and pleasant ambience. Drinks were good as was the soup and salad. People at other tables were served their meals before us even though our order was... More

We had a hard time getting in at the time we cared for. A bottle of wine is a little high but good tasting. I had the pork chop and was it good. People are nice and we will be back.

What a nice surprise when we received a Groupon as a gift for Christmas, 2014. We had an awesome experience at The Poplar Inn. The food, service and atmosphere was outstanding. Our salad was fresh, both of our entrees were delicious and the dessert was delightful (we shared the dessert). Located in downtown West Bend, just a short drive from... More

I have been to the Poplar before, for drinks with friends. While here for drinks once, I saw a plate go past that was beautifully put together and had the food stacked. I found out that the name of the dish was the Towering Inferno. I said to my friend, "I am going to order that someday." So Thursday was... More

O' so yummy. the best ever!! We purchased a coupon on Groupon. wasn't sure what to expect. It was little pricey but, well worth it. you get what you pay for. Portion sizes we're spot on. Appetizers we're tasty. Soups we're definitely homemade. No can soup here. We both ordered steaks. I had the stuffed tenderloin and he had the... More

Our group shared four very different dinner selections, all of which were good,but not spectacular. The atmosphere is quaint and cozy, perfect for a romantic meal if you want to afford it. Check out the menu and pictures online. It was a good one time experience for us.

I really like this place for quiet dining or a romantic outing. Steaks are great. Setting is upscale but not formal. A bit pricey for most budgets, $30 steaks.

Tried the Poplar Inn for dinner tonight. Quaint building, very friendly staff. We were seated immediately, didn't go upstairs to the bar ( I'd like to check it out next time). Cocktails were delivered quickly, and were delicious. Salad was good, better than average, but not memorable. 3 of the 4 at our table ordered steak, I opted for mahi... More

Our family of four had a 18 oz. t-bone steak, two 6 oz filets, and spinach ravioli all of which were truly superb. The dishes were prepared with extra attention to flavorings. We all wanted dessert but were too stuffed to have any. The interior of the restaurant is quaint and restful and further enhances the dining experience. Excellent waitstaff... More
