We ordered delivery from Wissota Chophouse. It was a special meal, so we were willing to pay more. Everything was very expensive. We ended up ordering several appetizers and smaller meals to share. We were disappointed to find out after ordering that several items were...not available. Had we known, we would have ordered different items, but we weren't given the option. They just adjusted our order without notice. Not a single meal was worth what we paid. It was regular bar food at an outrageous price. The calamari was poorly cooked and completely cold. Truffle fries were bland and soggy. The charcouterie was basic. The soup could have been from a can. We were not at all impressed.More

My wife and I were here to celebrate our birthdays. We ordered the Sea Bass and rib eye and split both, with a side a whipped potatoes. All 3 were wonderful, tasty and cooked perfectly. They gave us a mountain of tiramisu for dessert that...we could not finish. We don't treat ourselves to an expensive meal too often, so we want to make sure it is a great one...this one was perfect!More

Went here a couple times, the first time with the Rolls-Royce Owners Club, We were treated very well and ALL the food and drinks were great. Seems like everyone wanted to have more of the Alligator appetizer (it was excellent). No, not the cheapest place...in Janesville, but a very Classy one. If you are expecting cheap typical Bar food, this is NOT the place to go. We have gone here several times since and it always has been a high-end place.More

The true rating is negative stars! My husband and I were looking forward to this night out. Unfortunately, this was possibly the worst dining experience we've ever had, primarily due to the service. For a place that markets itself as high quality and upscale, our...waiter did not come close to meeting that mark. Likely, because we received service from the bartender. He appeared completely untrained to provide table service. He was awkward and acted like he had never worked in the restaurant area before, making our entire evening awkward and uncomfortable. We had to repeatedly ask for utensils because he did not bring enough for our soup, salad, or dessert. He did not refill our water glasses throughout the entire meal. He left used, dirty dishes on the table throughout the meal and these really piled up because we ordered several courses. At the very end, after dessert, he asked us if he could take some of the dishes but did not pick them up and instead asked us to hand him each piece. Halfway through our main course while we were still obviously eating and enjoying our meal, he asked us if he could bring some take home boxes for us. This was very poor timing and made us feel rushed even though there was only one other table at the restaurant. Every time he spoke to us, took our orders, etc he stood so far away from the table that we almost had to shout to have him hear us and we struggled to hear him. Our bill came to over $250+. I am fine with that in a fine dining establishment and have paid that many times at other places. However, the significant difference is that in those other restaurants, we've received impeccable service that is in proportion to that cost. We absolutely did not receive that and the entire evening was ruined because of the untrained staff and poor table service. The food was okay but overpriced for the main portions. The salad and sides were better in quality and taste. I did write two messages to notify the manager of this experience and received no response. I was not asking for anything except acknowledgement that the messages were received. Again, this is not customer service acceptable for this level of fine dining.More

It was our 15th anniversary so we splurged. Had the wedge blue cheese salad, crab cakes, bone in ribeye, lobster and whipped loaded potatoes. Everything was delicious! Wait staff was great too! Outside patio has heaters and a gorgeous waterfront view. Got a little crowded...for my comfort level with covid and all. I wasn’t seated 6 feet from the next table/person.More

We dropped in for dinner after a day-trip to Cascade to ski in the early March 2021 snow. Let's look at what it offers: 1. Good steaks 2. Good wine list 3. Good location (in a hotel, with ample parking in the back) 4. Good...service We walked through the hotel lobby, and were greeted as we entered the restaurant and promptly seated. It was a Tuesday night - they weren't very busy - key tip - go Tuesday night! We ordered a caesar salad, which was more than big enough for two. Key tip: If they say a dish (side dishes, salads) are big enough for 2, they REALLY ARE. We ordered a BV Rutherford Cabernet to go with our dinner. My wife ordered their Iberico Pork, and I had their 10 ounce filet. She really enjoyed her Iberico Pork. It had great presentation (served on a plank) and the salts and various dipping materials worked great with it. I really enjoyed the filet - it was cooked exactly how I ordered it - medium rare, and was just delicious and tender. I did grab some of my wife's salt from her Iberico Pork - it helped spice it up. However, it was char broiled, and soooo tender. For sides, I ordered their asparagus, and my wife added on their Truffle Fries. Both were enough for 2, so we ended up so stuffed that desert was unfortunately out of the question. If I were you, and I was looking for a nice dinner in Janesville, I'd make a reservation with this place in a heartbeat. The service was very punctual and helpful. Our water glasses stayed full, our service was both prompt and polite - just wonderful. COVID protocols were excellent! Dine with confidence.More

My wife and I loved our time at the Chop House this evening. Our server was Cara (pronounced Kaaahhra 😉 ) and the service and food was perfect. Cara was fun and made us laugh several times, the food was spot on! A great evening...overall. We had the Lobster Bisque, Scallops, Baby Carrots and Garlic Mashed Potatoes and finished it with raspberry Tiramisu. We had nothing bad to say about any of it. Perfect night! Will definitely go back.More

Dinner on Friday night. Check in at podium, 3 people standing there, no one greets us. Ask for table and seated. Ordered cocktails, diet Coke flat, no garnish in drink. Server friendly and efficient. Ordered bacon, delish. Two thick bacon strips served on wooden plank....Ordered caprese salad. Way over dressed, drowning in balsamic vinegar and oil. Fresh Mozzarella very nice. Ordered ribeye steak and two lobster tails. Lobster cooked nicely. Asked for drawn butter and received two. Ribeye served sans steak knife which was needed, steak very tough. Not overcooked just tough meat. $150.00 for four drinks, two bacon strips, soggy salad, yummy lobster tails and the worst overpriced steak I've ever been served. I'm not opposed to this price point for dinner if the food is good, sadly, it was not. Free parking.More
