Went for the first time last week with a Groupon. The service and food were just wonderful. I recommend the yummy mashed cauliflower. I had the jumbo shrimp and the half rack of ribs. These ribs are fantastic; falling off the bone and great sauce. My dinner mate had the medallions with mushrooms. Awesome wine sauce and very juicy. I... More

Excellent food. My wife had the seafood scampi ($26) and I had the 20 oz bone in ribeye ($32). Both were delicious and it was one of the most tender ribeyes I've had in a while. Salad was good and my wife had soup, also very good. We had a drink before dinner and one after dinner. Very friendly staff... More

Had a 6:30 reservation for six people last night (Friday). Did not get a table until 7:15. Yes, I get it that it is a Friday, but why take the reservation if you have to wait 45 minutes to sit down? After that, service was slow. And I mean slow. All in, with normal table service, (we passed on desert),... More

My wife and her father took our kids out to eat here in January. They all thought the food was good. I was brought some take out ribs and chicken. I thought the food was very good, no complaints. We will be returning in the future.

My husband and I decided to visit the Jailhouse on New Year's Eve after not eating there for several years. We had a very pleasant experience, from the great service from our waitress Sarah, to our really good food. I had the 6oz filet with scallops and my husband had a rib eye. Steaks were cooked the way we had... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants! Awesome ribs and prime rib. We have always had excellent service, even though it is sometimes a very crowded place.

Our party was 4 adults and 1 small child. We we seated immediately on a busy Friday. The strap on the highchair was broken, and not very clean. Having said that, we were greeted by a pleasant waitress and promptly received our drink order. I had to ask for a children's menu, which after asking for a highchair you would... More

My boyfriend and I ate at The Jail House Restaurant this past Saturday to celebrate Labor Day and loved every minuted of it! The staff was exceptionally nice, and the food was spectacular! We started with the spinach and artichoke dip, which was delicious! The appetizer came with these triangular pitas that we just loved, great touch! They had an... More

If you have a problem with your food, don’t expect to be treated well. We went to the Jailhouse for my daughter’s birthday (9) – it is her favorite place for the desserts they offer. I ordered a new York strip (my wife and mother-in-law also ordered steaks). We all ordered the steaks medium, but when my food came out... More

Just had a fish fry last night. All you can eat beer battered cod. Crisp, tender, and not greasy. Came with cole slaw and rye bread. I had the potato pancakes. Two big pancakes with applesauce and syrup. Also came with soup or salad. I had the Wisconsin cheese beer soup. It was outstanding. Could have brought a pot home... More
