Sat at the bar. No wait since I was solo. Ordered pretty fast. Way too much food but the price was great. I'd for sure go back.

Great friendly staff, who were very attentive. Food was great and large portions. We try to go to local places when we can and I highly recommend this place.

Found this place off of TripAdvisor and it was spectacular! Had a little wait but was well worth it. We sat outside, the waitress was wonderful and attentive. If you like bloody Mary's then I highly suggest you order one. The breakfast burrito was yummy, the pancakes with bacon in it was so fluffy and huge. Will absolutely go back... More

Honestly, everything at Comet is delicious. You cannot go wrong with any choice. I am a meat-eater and ate with a friend who is vegan. She ordered the vegan friendly burger and it was AMAZING. But so was my non-vegan, mac n cheese with bacon. There is something for everyone and EVERYONE will be satisfied.

I love their outdoor seating. The food is interesting, innovative and always good. They have some unique drinks though they are rather expensive. The food price point is awesome as the quality is fantastic and they offer lots if local/Wisconsin sourced ingredients. The wait staff is well trained, fun, irreverent and attentive.

The food and service was outstanding!! They offer a wide array of beer and cocktails. The food was reasonably priced. Be sure to leave room for pie or a cupcake. The banana cream pie pairs nicely with the Rusty Red Nitro.

This was our first visit and it was worth the trip off the Interstate to have a delicious breakfast! We ventured here because it has been featured on Diner's, Drive Ins, and Drives. We enjoyed Bacon Bloody Mary's, breakfast burritos and an omelet. We look forwarding to visiting again!

Fun brunch on a Saturday. The bacon Bloody Mary is served with a beer chaser. Not seen that before... The Lunch selections were generally unique and cooked to order. Food and drink was very good. There was a fairly long (30 min) wait but all agreed it was worth it.
