5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

A fun, local restaurant with excellent food, and a Wisconsin flavor. The wait staff was knowledgeable and friendly.

“Interesting place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

The perfect décor for Wisconsin, tractors and other farm decorations. Cute items for sale and toy tractors for kids to play with. The waiters/waitresses were dressed in bib overalls.

We had the salad bar but as I watched others being served I wish had had tried something off the menu. They have a baked apple dumpling for dessert that I'm told is to die for. Next time!! I will go back.

“Very Average with Good Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

if you are looking for bland home cooking, this is it. Most importantly, the restaurant is clean and the service is good

“Stay away from the WALLEYE”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

Walked across the street from the fairfield hotel and ate dinner one evening with colleagues. Two of us decided on the Walleye, he ended up throwing up later that evening and I ended up on the toilet in the early morning hours. If you eat there I would stay away from the fish.
