Was not that impressed with this establishment. Ordered a New York strip steak not cooked the way I ask they took it back twice. They tried to offer us a discount on our meal you didn't take it just want to go back.

I like to be pampered when I go out to eat and this place does just that. The food is fantastic and the service is wonderful. You truly get what you pay for. Really exceptional.

I had seen this restaurant in Groupon and thought it sounded like a neat place to try out. Our waitress was great but our food, not so much. My husband ordered a medium well filet. It came more like medium rare. I ordered the brandy mushroom chicken. It was good but nothing special. We were seated on the first floor.... More

We went on a Groupon coupon, and it was the first time we had really ever tried the place. It is an old an somewhat unassuming house-sized place near downtown West Bend. We were warmly greeted and seated almost immediately, despite the fact that we were fairly early for our reservation. Our server was very nice, and professional. I had... More

Last month my husband and I went to the Poplar for our 25th anniversary and we did not have a good experience. That night I wrote a review and early the next day we were contacted by the owner of the restaurant who apologized sincerely for the service we received that evening. He assured us it was not in any... More

The Poplar Inn is popular for a very good reason! Their food and service is excellent. My wife and I just visited there this past Wednesday evening and had their wonderful New Zealand rack of lamb. It's some of the best I have ever had..... Seasoned and prepared perfectly. We plan on returning frequently.

Great place, fantastic steaks, seafood was also very fresh and tasty. Steaks are acquired that day so the menu changes all the time. Hand cut thick and tasty.
