I am not a person who likes to spend a lot on a typical sit down dinner. This place is good, crowded and the food is yeah! I have other options and so I would try them first from now on.

I'm in town in business, and I usually try to stick to big names. Fond Du Lac doesn't necessarily have many chains, so I trusted Trip Advisor for their "Best in Town" rating. HOLY COW were they right!!! I ordered the best cheese curds I've ever had, filet mignon - cooked to a perfect Medium Rare, Mac n cheese and... More

This restaurant is good in Fond du Lac and is very busy most of time. During the weekend, sometime the waiting time is quite long. Food and service is above average.

Pretty decent bar food with great service and a neat atmosphere. Beer list is extensive, with some great local choices and some beers from breweries I've never even heard of! Lot of good choices, organized by style of beer. Very fairly priced too! Huge menu--which means something for everyone. I work in the industry and will say that I was... More

In town on business and came here with a coworker. The weather was nice so we sat outside. Started with the onion rings and was very satisfied. Coworker had wings and soup and said they were very good. I had the blackened chicken sandwich and was VERY satisfied. Perfectly seasoned and actually blackened...not burned. The chicken was moist and the... More

Went there with a foreign group. Fried food was ok but that is hard to mess up. My burger was below average and burnt. Some of the guys got wraps and we're not impressed. The service was fine but kind of slow. Overall food was extremely average...we were expecting more since it is so highly rated.

Five star! A million stars! A galaxy of stars! Here's what our family had: Chicken wings: big, meaty pieces. Awesome dips - Thai peanut, curry, buffalo and more. Yummy! Cheese curds: bursting with melted cheesy goodness. Really good dipping sauce. Pulled pork wrap: pulled smoked pork, sharp cheddar cheese & pico de gallo with bourbon BBQ dipping sauce - out...
