This was our second visit to The Poplar Inn. This time it was our anniversary. We enjoyed the scallop appetizer. Wine selection was good. I had filet which was done perfectly and very tender. Husband had the towering inferno which is a filet on top of a breaded portobello mushroom topped with gorgonzola cheese. Delicious homemade cheesecake. Excellent service. A... More

I've been to the Poplar a few times now and the food is always good. The location doesn't have great parking and it's a pretty small place. It's cute inside, just feels so small. I've sat at the bar upstairs and the bartender likes to toss bottles around like he's from "Cocktail" which splashed me with alcohol a few times.... More

It took some research, but at last I found a restaurant with great ratings in West Bend, WI - and the ratings were correct. The restaurant is located in an historic inn across the street from Washington County courthouse. Lit up at night, the courthouse is a lovely view from the windows of the restaurant. Inside, the owners really tried... More

The food was good although nothing exceeded my expectations. They have some great wines, and they are kind enough to let you taste before buying. I do wish we had eaten in the outdoor patio instead of upstairs, where I thought the ambiance was a little lacking. The patio looked absolutely lovely however, and it's a really cool old building....

The food was great! The staff is friendly and the service is great. The decor is lovely and the place is super clean. I can't wait to go back and try other dished. I would feel comfortable going to the bar and having dinner and a drink by myself. I may just do that soon.

It was our anniversary last night. Went to celebrate. We have been married 43 years and really appreciated the early bird menu with smaller portions. We can't eat as much as we used to. The food was excellent. We will definitely be coming back. I had the fillet and my husband had the walleye. They were both very good. We... More

Amazing food, good choices, upscale service and historic ambience. A wonderful experience. Two dining areas, up and down, with equal charm on both floors. The yummy warm bread was amazing.

This is our "go to" local place to eat. It's in a historic building with a lot of character. The bar is upstairs and usually has live music on Friday or Saturday evenings. The menu is outstanding - I've never had a bad meal! We love the setting and food so much we held our daughter's small wedding here. Tony... More
