We had high hopes for the Red Rooster when craving a good breakfast while visiting Mineral Point. When the server said ham & spinach quiche I was looking forward to something special. Although it was full of spinach, I could never taste it. The few bits of ham were good. My husband had ham and eggs. Ham okay, but everything... More

We each ordered hand held pasties. The crust is made with lard like my grandma used to use. The meat was the main ingredient followed by potato & a very small amount of rutabaga. The taste is excellent. It was served with a side. We chose the wilted lettuce salad with warm bacon dressing which turned out to be fresh... More

Great pasties and very authentic! On this visit we only had dessert and it was delicious as well! I had coconut custard pie and it was to die for. My friend had some chocolate cake extravaganza that she loved. They have frozen pasties to take home to the poor husbands who didn't get to come with!

We were on our way home from and few days away and stopped here for lunch. They serve the best pasties I ever had. They offer it two different ways, either from a cassarole pan or and individualy baked serving. I got the individual serving option so it comes like a meat and potatoe and ruddabaga pie in a crust.... More

We were in Mineral Point today to do some shopping and check out the town. My daughter saw they had pasties and wanted one for lunch. They have been serving pasties since 1972 or 1973. They had a pasty on the kids menu - which was perfect for her (half a pasty), my other daughter had a hamburger, it looked... More

We had the traditional pasty and a figgyhobbin dessert. The pasty was fine although I was thinking the pastry portion of the pasty would be flakier and not soggy. The figgyhobbin was all dough with a scant amount of filling (perhaps 15 raisins). It was disappointing considering the price. The wait staff was friendly but not overly so. I like... More

Enjoyed a great early morning breakfast with good conversation with the locals. I had the apple bread French toast which was very good. My husband had traditional eggs over easy and American fries.
