Good food. Very nice friendly staff. Easy to find. Convenient parking. We go there for business lunch buffet sometimes and gatherings. They have a nice sitting area outside.

Offers a buffet during the day which is good. It is nothing unusual or special - the typical salad bar. Offers a meat dish on buffet - it was barbeque beef the day we were there and it was ok. Service is great and it has a nice atmosphere. Bathrooms clean.

This was my first trip to La Crosse, and friends took me to dinner. The dining room was spacious with tables and booths. The salad bar is wonderful and comes with dinner. Soup is also included, but we did not have any. We ordered two Smothered Chicken Specials and one Senior Spicy Shrimp and Pasta, and they were all good.... More

Our family had three birthdays to celebrate so we made reservations for 12. We were not disappointed. Our waitress Kim was very attentive throughout the meal. We ordered everything from the sea food platter to steak as well as tips. The food was wonderful. We will return for sure.

Nice enough place, been expanded a number of times. Bar is just that...a place for locals to drink. Dining area clean but uninspiring. Food is okay, but prices seem fair for what you get.

For a Wisconsin Fish fry Schmidty's is about as good as it gets in Western Wis. Nice soup and salad bar, drinks reasonably priced and poured. I like their broiled or pan fried cod. Excellent. And all at a reasonable price. Busy place on Friday but an indicator of what locals think.

Thank Jerry H
