We have never had a bad experience here. The staff...the food and drink...atmosphere...all come together for a place you want to go to all the time. They have a menu that will please all age groups. I have never been displeased with anything I have ordered. Try this place...you won't be disappointed!

This place was a real delight after a full day of traveling. I had the rib eye and potato soup. It was so good that I didn't even need steak sauce. The fried cheese curds were divine as well. The service, food,drinks, and the entire experience were great.

We were staying overnight in Fond du Lac and found this place on tripadvisor. It was very busy even at 5:00. The restaurant was packed with families so as a childless couple we found a table in the sunroom off the bar more tranquil. The hostess and server were very mature (I mean in terms of how they acted, not... More

They do a great job with their specials and with a wide variety of menu items. Their pricing is reasonable. From salads to wraps to sandwiches to full meals, you can't go wrong here. And they are economical!... More

Excellent food, friendly staff and neat atmosphere. Friday dinner was a bit of a wait but worth it. Large tap beer selection from known beers to great local flavors

Selected from TripAdvisors reviews and it was great. Friendly service, excellent food, wide selection of draft beers, and reasonable prices. I had prime rib which was lean, done perfectly, tender and flavorful. My wife had the three cheese potato soup and the filet mignon and both were fabulous. Very popular place and no reservations, so it may involve a wait... More

My husband and I were traveling through Wisconsin and stopped for lunch. Cute decor and really friendly service. Husband loved his pan fried fish sandwich . I had the prime rib panini, also good. For us though the star of the meal were the dipping sauces. Great for my sandwich and amazing for the onion rings.
