Best Breakfast Hands Down!

This is a great little hide away in Barton (West Bend). The food and service are great. It's a smaller place so be prepared to wait a bit on Sunday for breakfast but it's well worth it!

Good menu choices, good service by the waitress and water girl. Food was really good as well as the Bloody Mary. It came with a varied garnish. I will visit again. Can't wait to try breakfast and dinner menu items.

This place has the best breaded shrimp dinner around. Huge pieces with great breading. The fish frys also come with fresh bread and rolls, and a rarity in Wisconsin - a side salad AND cole slaw. I rarely order breaded shrimp anywhere because of small portions, but I never leave this place hungry. The fish is also very good, and... More

Our first time visiting the restaurant. We made a reservation beforehand which we were glad that we did. Customers were lining up at the door to get in. The meal was excellent and the service was outstanding. The whole staff and not just the primary server took care of us and checked in on us.

There's no need to drive into Milwaukee to enjoy good German food! When it first opened, the German entrees is what drew us to the location. I admit I was taking a chance since, as a non-meat eater, I know that traditional German food is basically all meat. No worries! The Braising Pan had and continues to offer some great... More

Amazing food and really friendly service. Waitress was great and obviously proud to work there. When we mentioned we stopped because they are #1 on trip advisor, she proudly told us about their amazing chef and how much she enjoys working there. She was very kind to our daughter offering to make her a sundae with sprinkles when she didn't... More

We had excellent service and food and the wait staff was very friendly. The Bloody Mary and deserts were awesome as well. Thought the bar area was very small especially if there was a wait time, luckily we didn't have a wait. We sat and visited with the other couple that we met their and there was no push to... More

Busy Sunday a.m., were told 30 minute wait, it was 25 and worth the wait. Service was excellent- water and coffee were kept filled, food was hot and delicious, and staff friendly and attentive. Their pancakes are wonderful, omelettes fluffy, and the 'armeggedon' deliciously decadent. Only one downside, next time will ask for dry toast.

The service here was phenomenal. They pay attention to the details from welcoming you to your table with your name placed on it, to never letting your water glass get below half full, to insisting on boxing your food for you instead of letting you do it yourself! We both ordered German dishes off the menu that came with a... More
