Very americana type of restaurant, took a while for a waitress to take our orders, not a very busy afternoon and felt like it took for ever to get help from our waitress. Once she took our food order it was out relatively quick. Food was very good but service was some what lacking. Ok place to stop just make... More

This little place seems to be stuck in small town America. People seem to know each other, but those who just walk in the door for the first time are welcomed like the regulars. This is our annual lunch spot on our trips through Wisconsin. It's homey, the food is good, and the service is fast and friendly

Greasy and disgusting floating greens in soup. I'd skip if I were you. The service is flighty, the food is subpar, but it is busy.

While the rating is average, the Thorpedo easily beats everything else around the area. In addition to all meals, the fresh pies are wonderful....worth the trip all by themselves.

gave this restaurant two tries and can only return for their homemade pie. Being a vegetarian, the options in this small town diner are slim. The options which are available are only fried, unless you don't mind a heap of iceberg lettuce and a few tomato and cute slices...being the main entree, the vitamins are lacking. The menu is large... More

Friendly staff, good food for a decent price. It was my family's first time. They accommodated a large group.

We came in noontime and we're told sit anywhere. Never given water menu etc. Others sat watered and given menus and orders taken. Nobody even acknowledged us even being there. We had deodorant on so we don't know why we were ignored. We left. Too bad. We really wanted to eat there.

My husband used to come here in his younger days so he shared this place with me and a few stories. The menu is very extensive and plenty of seating. The food was good and the company was great.

The staff is fast friendly and efficient. The owners are always in house and ready to meet your needs. The home-made soups are really good, I especially enjoy the mushroom on Wednesdays. Our Grand-daughters always insist on their Thorpedo visit. We must have deep fried cheese curds, chocolate malts, and chicken strips. The food is ample and tasty. The staff... More

Fast service and great food. Fish fry was a little greasy but was at a busy time of day (noon). Breakfasts are large and the service is fast. Avoid Friday at noon - very busy. Great menu variety and very family orientated.

Thank Jim H
