Have heard about this place for years and recently a couple of folks told me that we should try it. Took my parents and we were very surprised at how good it truly was. Place was packed and was glad I made a reservation. Seated promptly and Emily our server was right behind us to take our drink order. Nice... More

Hidden a little tree shaded glen in rural Wisconsin is one of the best kept secrets in the western part of the state - Shady Grove. It is chef-driven and has a habit of using fresh produce, raised in the area, to compliment its dishes. In addition to prime rib and steak you will find some creative appetizers such as... More

Brought a group of seventeen for dinner at Chez d'Grove. Hoped for good food, good service, and a nice atmosphere. Got great food, outstanding service and a great place to host a get together. The people at Shady's were exceptionally easy to do business with and helped me with the planning and execution. Cannot recommend it more highly!

So, Lyn went to college in River Falls, and use to hitch hike to this place, back then it was a beer bar, but now, same footprint but a very nice restaurant with a menu that you would not expect as it's in the coutry, but close to Ellsworth, WI. We have a steak that was just fantastic, the service... More

Took my wife out for Valentines Day dinner. Disappointed that they had a special menu, but there was nothing special. My wife had the filet, and she said it was superb, I had the prime rib and it was good but not great. Best part of my dinner was the side which was spaghetti squash covered in a marinara sauce...

This upscale little treasure in between River Falls and Ellsworth on state highway 65 is worth the drive from the Twin Cities. The quaint cabin-like atmosphere will cheer you as you enter, and the doting staff will make you feel welcome. The menu includes something to please every palette - the hard part is deciding what to order! As a... More

Our group of four had the delightful pleasure to visit Shady Grove on November 1. Two of our group are vegetarians. They were so impressed that the menu offered a variety of vegetarian meals, "starters", and soup. The Butternut Squash Ravioli was wonderful. The star of the meal was the Seared Scallops in and orange brandy sauce. I have never... More

We have been here multiple times and this was our second visit under the new ownership. We have always liked this place but our most recent visit was probably the best visit yet! The service was wonderful!! Staff was ever present, filling water glasses, clearing plates and just close enough if something was needed. My grilled shrimp was sooo good... More

I can't imagine a more enjoyable dining experience. From my appetizer (fresh deep fried Ellsworth cheese curds) to the entree (bison steak with fantastic sweet potato side) and the dessert (chocolate caramel tart) it was a modern and fabulous Wisconsin Supper Club experience. Don't forget to order an Old Fashioned (state drink of Wisconsin) -- I think they make quite... More

Our first visit which definitely will not be our last. We drove from the Twin Cities with a cousin who raved about it and we agreed with her. The food was top-notch. My duck breast was out-of-this world, my husband's steak was perfect, and our cousin's walleye was gigantic. We began with delicious rolls, followed by a good salad and... More
