You can't get a better view of the valley, I'm sure the fall is amazing and would go back just to see that. We were on a couples biker trip and this seemed like a perfect stop. I think the owner's rudeness is just part of the tourist schtick they seem compelled to portray. They have signs lined up for... More

We only stopped for one drink in our trip but it was very unique with a magnificent view. The owners were very friendly and showed us pictures of the large groups of bikes, and collector cars.

Came to this place on a Saturday evening and it was totally empty. There were about 2 other tables with a couple of people each. Walked into the place and just get a strange look from the proprietor, no welcome or anything. Never having been there and they have seating outside we figured take a seat and a server will... More

I read the reviews about the owner and we decided to make the trip on our motorcycle to check it out. I don't know what the issues were, but the owner seemed to be a very friendly guy. We had the bacon cheeseburger and curly fries and we both thought the food was very good. We had a couple of... More

This place had great food, western decor, great staff and was a fun place. Must see all of the donated, dead cowboy boots and Boot Hill Cemetary.

The food was pretty good and home cooked by the Mrs. The owner is a great guy who is overworked...once you get to talking to him he is an awesome man. Interesting collections decorate this place inside and out. I will be back again I'm sure

I have never met an owner of a bar in the middle of frickin' nowhere who is not a people person. If not for his wife, I would have walked out. He is a jerk. Food, soup, amenities are good and the overlook is one of our favorites in Wisconsin- as is the drive down Alligator Slide (real name of... More

Summer means riding my motorcycle, and Hansen's Hold Out is a destination for the view. The food, not so much. My review describes the regular and unpleasant dealing with the owner. His demeanor is curt and disdainful. I can't remember the last time I encountered this level of deliberate scorn from a business dependent upon customer service. I'll visit again... More

Very rude bartender/owner. Mediocre food. Small drinks in plastic. Wish I would have skipped this place.
