While visiting my daughter in Wisconsin I wanted a good old fashioned fish fry like I used to get when I lived there. My daughter heard about the Jail House. It was fantastic!! The service was great and the fish fry was exactly as I remembered. I would definitely go back again.

So maybe I should just keep my mouth shut on this place which has occupied the corner of Pleasant Valley Road and the Middle of Nowhere for years. Most nights most of the tables are filled and some nights one just has to take a turn at the bar before being seated. The menu is nothing out of the ordinary... More

In looking for a new place, our group of cousins found this location. Visited on a Tuesday night and found it quite quaint and homey like. Interesting building out in the middle of nowhere. The dining area is very small and the tables a VERY close together, its almost like everyone is sitting together - reminiscent of European family table... More

Ordered a queen size prime rib to take some home, but it was so delicious there were no leftovers! Friday fish fry is very good, but it's very busy and tends to be a loud night at the Jail House, which is a smaller restaurant.

All I can say is "Awesome". We had a reservation on a Friday and had to wait a bit, which we expected as having been here before. We were seated upstairs (which we prefer). The staff is well versed on the specials and are very attentive for having to run up and down the stairs! The food was fantastic as... More

We ate here tonight for our Anniversary dinner, mostly because we had a Groupon that we wanted to use. This was the 4th time we've eaten here over the last 7 years. Our previous experiences had been less than ideal also but we thought we'd give it one last try....MISTAKE. Restaurant opened at 5pm today and we arrived at around... More

We are never disappointed when we eat here. The service and quality of the food is beyond expectation right down to the presentation. The chef made an appearance at our table last time we ate there. It was a nice added touch. Highly recommended!!
