The Poplar Inn's historic building provides impeccable ambience. Both dining rooms are superb. The 2nd floor includes the bar area .The menu always contains way too many tempting choices, which makes it hard to pick just one. The Towering Inferno is my usual choice, but everything we have tried in our many visits here have been wonderful. The fish is... More

Went as a foursome for a celebration dinner and was pleasantly surprised at both the atmosphere and quality of food. We are not an easily impressed group (a former Chicago restaurant owner, a current pastry chef, and a couple of food snobs- lol), but we were impressed...and happy with all our selections from apps, to wine, to entrees and desserts....

Excellent ribeye, well prepared and marbled. Artichoke and spinach ap was very tasty. Very comfortable surrounding. Nice to have a restuarant of that caliber in a small town.

Groupon for some reason gave me $30 to spend on anything I wanted, so I decided to use it on a restaurant since we don't go out to eat very often. There were only a few selections, this being one of them, so after checking out all of the good reviews, I decided to give it a shot & was... More

Was an excellent dinner. Aged steak was fantastic, service was friendly and did a great job carrying everything up the stairs. It's a small quaint setting. Not what we expected to find in West Bend.

For our anniversary we wanted something place out of the ordinary. Wife heard about Poplar Inn via a coworker. About a 50 minute drive outside of Milwaukee. We had reservations at 530 and we were seated promptly upstairs at a nice corner table tucked away. Our server was very professional and knew the menu very well. We decided on the... More

The Poplar is a real gem in West Bend. My tenderloin was so soft I could cut it with my fork. We also enjoyed lobster, shrimps, raviolis, and rib eye. The salmon was good but a bit salty.

This was our second visit to the Poplar- our first was not that great of an experience but last night was outstanding! My husband had the ribeye- no gristle and delicious! We shared the Blue Tenders appetizer- the gorgonzola sauce was superb!!! I had the chicken house salad- very good as well.

Thank Tammy K
