We were looking for a seafood option that wasn't one of our normal haunts. The boyfriend stumbled on The Jailhouse in a search, we checked out their website and menu and said 'Looks Good!'. Being a Friday night, we expected it to be busy...and it was! (We tried to call for a reservation, but they only take them for parties... More

We have been to th Jail House many times, as usual the food was good and the staff friendly. My wife had the lobster/filet combo, the lobster maybe could have been cooked a minute or two longer, the filet was prefect. I ordered the 20oz Rib Eye which was very good. The place was a little busy when we got... More

Fried chicken is amazing. Best I've ever had. And I'm from the south. Prices...well a little pricey. But their fried chicken makes up for it. Service was average.

The Jail house restaurant has a following Of a large local population being in the country. Food is good. Service is good. Old Fashion drinks are made from scratch . NO refills on soda drinks. Recent visit was for Friday night fish. Cod is all you can eat. A number of different fish to choose from

We have been there 3x and will be back soon. Found this as they have low carb options beside potatoes. Walleye is amazing as well as the Prime Rib on Sat. Next time will try the Salmon! Service is very good and friendly casual atmosphere.

We went out for dinner on a Friday fairly early around 5pm. It was not busy and had never been there before. The waitress was ok but not as attentive as should be considering the prices of their steak dinners. You get 2 bread sticks and a salad and a potato. We had 1 glass of white zin. And 1... More

Just that- ok. We got there early on a Friday night. It was filled with the regulars and didn't feel very welcoming. No kid's menu. I ordered the perch and was served cod. The mashed cauliflower was delicious.

Stopped in for their Friday fish fry. Waited an 1-1/2 hours to be seated, which would have been okay, but then waited an hour to get our meal. All you can eat cod meal was one piece of fish and a rewarmed baked potato. Bread basket had two slices. It was terrible. They seemed way overloaded for the staff working... More

My wife and I had a gift certificate for the jail house so we thought we would go there for a fish fry. The Jail House is located out in the country and is a unique building. My wife ordered the poor mans lobster and I had the jumbo shrimp. The waiter was very nice and speedy, he brought us... More
