From the quaint decor, to the attentive staff, to the amazing food it was a perfect date night. Best steak and scallops I've had in a long time. Will be back!!!

We frequent Digger's often for work lunches. The spinach salad is enough for two people and delicious! The other fav is the prime rib sandwich. Unique supper club atmosphere. I did not give 5 stars only because of price, otherwise it's worth the trip every time!

The food is always high quality. They know how to cook a steak rare, a vanishing talent these days. The staff are always friendly. I would recommend this standard to anyone.

Great feel to this cool place reminiscent of the finest Wisconsin supper clubs. The room is divided by a wall down the middle with two large bars on each side of the restaurant. Decor form 50-60's era with pictures of classic movie stars. Food is very good, and so is the service. Great drinks that are priced great! Their bread... More

While there are a number of factors that contribute to a great restaurant experience, my own bottom-line evaluation comes down to the answer to a simple question----is this a place I would love to return to? In the case of Digger's Sting, the answer is an emphatic YES. Not only would we love to return, we wish this place was... More

My wife and I had been here before and had a great experience. This time not so much. Let me start off by saying this place is like taking a step back into a 70's supper club. It has a retro feel to it so if you are looking for a more modern feel, this is not it. But if... More

Has the old supper club feel and that's a good thing! Our waitress was very attentive. Food was excellent and the garlic bread is to die for!

Eight of us met for dinner. Hot garlic toast is a great starter. Prices are not expensive considering the quality of the food. We have dined here before and have not been disappointed. We had steak, prime rib, and seafood. All were properly prepared and the service was great.

Excellent food, wonderful service! Wish we knew about this gem sooner! My husband had the halibut and it was amazing! I had the blue cheese filet and it melted in your mouth. Can't wait for a return visit! Did I mention the old fashions? :)

My husband and I celebrated our 38th anniversary and his recent kidney replacement with a date; a movie and dinner out. We had never been to Diggers Sting in La Crosse, WI and we wanted to go somewhere a special. When we were young going to a "supper club" was an event to be savored as an occasion with good... More
