Had the rib-eye and a couple of Manhattans. Wife had scallops. Everything was great. Friend says he ALWAYS gets the special and has never gone wrong.

They could redecorate with new stuff but keep the theme. Food is always good. Love their garlic toast dipped in their ajus from their prime rib sandwich.

After a hectic morning and early afternoon, we went in search of a late lunch downtown. We spotted the sign for Digger Sting and ventured in. It was very quiet as the lunch crowd was gone. There were really only a couple of others at tables, and we opted to just sit at the bar which was empty. Our server/bartender,... More

The first time I went to Digger's I wondered what I had gotten myself into. It is located amidst a string of bars and I thought the food and atmosphere might be like other bars! Boy was I wrong. While there is a bar, there are also nicely appointed tables and seating and their menu has some delightful choices. There... More

My wife and I arrived in La Crosse on the final day of our 9-day road trip vacation, and this place was exactly what we needed - brandy old-fashioneds, prime rib, pan-fried walleye, and a timeless ambience. Even though we arrived at 9pm on a Saturday, there were still many tables enjoying dinner. Our server was running around delivering food... More

We went to Digger's for supper. You should make a reservation. We didn't know this but got their last free table for two. Took a while to get our drinks. Saw them at the bar and wanted to go get them ourselves. Prime rib was very good. Steak and shrimp was also good. Love their garlic toast. The prices were... More

We were in LaCrosse for my wife's meeting for the week and weere looking for a place to go. The bartender at the hotel suggested Digger's Sting as it was only 2 blocks from the hotel. We walked into the restaurant and were quite surprised how dark it was. But it like a traditional supper club you would have found... More

Diggers has been around a long time and evokes memories of a classic Wisconsin Supper Club. The decor is dated, but the food and service is top notch. A good place for lunch or dinner and a full service bar, Diggers is located in the heart of the city. You will go away happy after a meal at Diggers.

What a fun place. For a real "retro" experience, don't miss it. The food is great (both lunch and dinner), reasonably priced, and where else can you choose from six or seven different "Old Fashioned" choices? Love the atmosphere. A real blast from the past.
