There were empty tables, yet they wouldn't seat us. They took our order and 15 minutes later said, "Would you like bread?" My reply (to myself), "Of course, we're hungry." Then, we sat around and looked at one another for quite some time. It was if they dragged out the food service to seem like we were dining at some... More

We went with a group of four and the food for all of us was amazing. I highly recommend the students they are made to perfection with a large variety of types available. Save room for dessert they are wonderful too.

We have enjoyed many quality meals at the Poplar Inn over the years, usually to celebrate a special occasion. Last night our oldest daughter joined me and my wife for dinner. It was very crowded on a Friday night and service was much slower than we had ever experienced. Our waitress was not keeping an eye on our drinks and... More

This was our first visit to the Poplar Inn and the food was spectacular, service was OK, but could have been better. It was very busy so we could understand. Wondered about the choices of soup. One was lentil and the other was chili. What? Chili at an upscale restaurant? One very uncomfortable thing was that every time someone left... More

My husband and I went to the Poplar Inn this summer. We sat in their outdoor patio area and waited almost a half hour for a waitress. Many people would have probably just left, but we like their food and were in no rush. They were not busy; at least not outside. At the end of our meal I asked... More

I don't usually write reviews of restaurants in my home state of Wisconsin, especially one within a half hour of my home. I tend to write reviews from when I am traveling out of state and out of country. I am making this exception due to the surprisingly wonderful meal we had here. My husband and I decided to go...

My husband and I dine at the Poplar several times a month. The food is always great and the service is top notch! They have live entertainment on Friday nights. We try to go everytime they have Latin Rhythms playing there. Great Atmosphere and Judy is a wonderful host!

Waited for over 40 minutes for a steak entre that was not of good quality. Sent it back and waited another 20 minutes and still no new entre. No apologies from wait staff, no indication they cared at all about the situation. Chose the restaurant based on reputation and reviews. Very disappointed in food and service. Not worth the ranking... More

I took my wife there for her birthday and was pleased with the atmosphere. She had shrimp and was pleased and I had pork snitchall. It was not what I thought it would be but tasted good. Wine was reasonably priced on the lower end than moves higher fast. Our server (Jane) was excellent. We'll be back soon.
