Owner or manager, not sure who it was had a buzz and slurred speech with a friend bringing her another. The chef really needs to... More

Thanks for your feedback, it is very important that our customers are satisfied with our food and service. Judging by your review, however, I take it you've not been subject to either. Having said that, a simple search of the phrase "the silent woman" will show you that it is a legendary character and that there are several places around... More

My wife and I were given a Living Social certificate gift for the hotel and restaurant. Our visit coincided with the Taste of Fennimore. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Our 8 oz filet mignon and 12 ounce top sirloin were as close to perfectly medium rare as ever, and with a side as well as sauteed vegetables, for less than $25... More

Prime Rib was fantastic! Well worth a stop by. Best tap beer selection in the area. All Wisconsin micro brews.

My boyfriend and I ordered steaks the first night. We both ordered medium. They were cooked perfectly. The next night he ordered prime rib and I ordered the steak tacos. We agreed they were both delicious as well. They also had a tomato dill soup that was wonderful.

The restaurant had a unique décor and layout with plenty of intimate seating choices. The soup of the day was butternut squash and I hesitated because I wasn't sure it would be good but ordered a cup and it was the most delicious home made soup I have ever had! I also ordered the fried cheese and I was pleasantly... More

On October 8-9, 2014 - my husband and I stayed at the Fenway House Hotel in Fennimore, WI - next door to this restaurant. Both businesses are owned by the same friendly, service-oriented couple. We came to enjoy the colorful fall drive from the Twin Cities - taking Highway 61 all the way here. Beautiful! The first night we chose... More
