We went there with two other couples on a Monday night for the German smorgasbord, The place was packed and we soon learned why -- the choices of food was almost unlimited and it was very good. And then we could choose a desert from the desert table ....... and then the waitress came around with an irresistible tray of... More

Went on Friday night for fish fry. Waited over an hour, but TOTALLY worth it. Brandy old-fashioneds are to die for. Terrific bar staff. Food is very good and waitstaff superior. Looking forward to going back to try other food.

The Dorf Haus is one of my favorite places to go. You might have to wait because they are always busy, but for good reason. The staff there is very friendly. They accommodate large groups with fresh, hot food that is always good. I love their fish fry and their fritters are awesome.

We had read about this Fish Fry for years...lots of kudos in Madison BEST surveys. So we tried it.....fish was chewy, dry and batter was only OK...not outstanding. Ordered beer was flat. Certainly had better. They do have good German food! Been to the monthly Buffett...very good. sad about the fish though!

Wow, we have discovered Dorf Hans, Sauk City, WI. We went on a Monday night for the big German style buffet, its offered only 2 Mondays a month. Great salad bar, and great German entrees on the buffet, about 12 different kinds of food, homemade bread and desserts! $16.99, everything included, except the drinks, of course. Great Oompa band, fun... More

We happened to be in the area on the 3rd Monday of the month and were able to go to the Bavarian smorgasbord. The place was hopping and very busy. Service was slow, but friendly. Food was pretty typical, but well done for the size of the crowd. You get a lot for your money here. Prices are very reasonable.... More

I found this place online while on a photographic trip to the Sauk City area. Looked interesting so I thought I'd give it a try. I had the Jaegerschitzel which was excellent. Staff where warm and friendly. Will for sure go back next time I'm in the area.

My parents selected the Dorf Haus for a family/friends party, food and staff over-delivered. It was my first time there and it was well worth it. Slightly off the beaten path, if you want a great German meal with comfort foods, I would highly recommend the Dorf Haus. I hear that have a great fish fry too. I highly recommend... More
