We chose lighter fare entrees and were very pleased with the quality of our choices. Salmon and chicken teriyaki were flavorful and the vegetables superb. Enjoyed our visit to the bar before dinner - what a selection!

Recent visit to the Freighthouse Restaurant in La Crosse, Wisconsin reinforces what I already knew - this is one of the best places for dinner in the State and there is a lot of competition for that honor as anyway who lives here knows. I have been going to the Freighthouse for many years and have always had a great... More

I have enjoyed several dinners at the Freight House over the past few months. Each time I have been impressed and on 2 occasions I have hosted business dinners and was accommodated quickly without a reservation. The prime rib is delicious and my guests all enjoyed their steaks. The chef was open to substituting. Enjoyable dinner at a fair price

Quaint atmosphere! Great bar area and dining area. Food pretty good, house salad awesome, steaks had to be sent back, under or overdone.

I attended a company group dinner. We had the private room upstairs. The privacy was great and the 2 wait staff were nice, but since there were only 2 for a party of 36 our waters and drinks were not refilled often and it took forever to order. I ordered scallops and my fiancé ordered the engineer prime. The salad... More

Historic Rail building busting with history and great food. One of the top steak places in La Crosse. Nice wine list and excellent service

At one time this was the best place to go for that special night out or business dinner. Many other places have surpassed the Freighthouse for food quality and value. The salad bar is outdated and surpassed by many lower priced establishments in the area. While my steak was cooked properly, the meat was fairly chewy for a premier steakhouse.... More

Had an excellent meal. Service was superb. As it was our anniversary the waitress served my wife and I desert in the bar as we wanted to spend some time in that very fun atmosphere. A very positive experience with all having a very good time.

While in LaCrosse we were looking for a restaurant near our hotel. The Freighthouse was the closest. A great decision! The atmosphere was fun, the decor comfy. The service was great. But best of all, the food was delicious! One of us had the filet, one had the chicken breasts. Both great choices. If in the area again, we will... More
