This place offers incredible food and drinks. I had some great meals here during my last business trip and highly recommend it. Be sure to try a pint of the New Glarus Spotted Cow beer, only found in Wisconsin!

Try the mushroom ravioli. Fantastic! I sat in the back area, away from the front windows and it was very comfortable. The food was fantastic.

We were lucky, I think, to have a Saturday night dinner that while pleasantly buzzing, was not crazy busy. We selected Grilled oysters, lamb meatballs, goat cheese and beet salad, hummus, and a foie gras topped burger. We said no particular order and our waitress...More
