Excellent, excellent food!

This is one of my go tos for dinner out! No matter what you order the flavor so are superb! It's the big city chef type dishes but right in West Bend. They really know what they are doing in the kitchen, delicious! Always recommending to others.

What a wonderful evening out! The ambience was festive yet had that feeling of sitting in front of the fire at home with friends. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the wait staff was attentive without being over baring. Need to save room for dessert drinks next time!

Easily the best steak place in the West Bend area. Go in the winter or at Christmas for a warm, festive environment, & great service.

The service, the food, the ambiance, did I mention the food? WONDERFUL. Yes, it was pricey, but we had such a wonderful time that I didn't care. They even gave the couple a cupcake with a candle. We were there on a Wednesday, and there was a special on the steaks. One person noted that the special price for the... More

We have never had a bad experience, nor asked for anything that couldn't be done. They are a marvelous kitchen with a great staff to serve their offerings.

I live in West Bend and The Poplar Inn is not like any other restaurant in West Bend. The food is just fabulous. I've dined there twice and both times have been wonderful. You will pay for this wonderfulness but sometimes you're worth it, right? Look for Groupons - on average I'd say $25+ per person for your meal. Neat... More

I've been to the Poplar Inn several times this summer and enjoy it equally every time. The food is always delicious, everything I've ever had, and very well priced. Everyone on the staff, from servers to bartenders, are always extremely friendly and helpful. At my request, I've always dined upstairs. It's so very cozy and comfortable. I was disappointed this...

My husband and I went with another couple. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Would be a good place for a romantic type dinner. Service was great. Food was fair. I had a shrimp dish which was mediocre. My husband had a steak of some sort which he too was not overly impressed with. The price was a little on... More

We had a lovely server, Amanda. She was very engaging. The food was excellent! I had the surf and turf (Steak & Lobster) and the wife had butternut squash and ravioli. We had the creamyTomato Basil soup and I had a ham and potato soup. Both were very delicious! The price was $$ but very worth it. Will stop again... More
