This is one of my favorite special occasion restaurants. White linens and great food with outstanding service. It isn't cheap because it isn't supposed to be.
The atmosphere is tight and unpretentious. Kind of a northern Wisconsin feng sui. It is a husband/wife owners and they clearly care about their customer.
I am a vegetarian, which is a real challenge in this part of the country. But it is my burden to bear and I never judge a restaurant by their lack of veggie options. Shady Grove always has at least one veggie option and the last time they had three (yes!).
Always make reservations because it is small and it is busy.
