“Been there, done that”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

We were hoping for a supper club similar to the Black Otter, but that was not possible at this location. The mixed drinks were terrible, the salad bar had slimy cucumbers, and the entrees were mediocre. It was extremely dark, and we felt like we were in a cave. We will continue to drive out of town for a worthwhile supper club experience.

“Drinks are a bit strong...please be careful”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

We've eaten here many times over the years, but, PLEASE be careful if you drink there. One if you are NOT eating, two MAX if you are. I realize this may be anti-our Wisconsin culture, but I don't want others to find the dining room spinning after just two drinks at the bar, as I have. The food is, frankly, just ok. There are other restaurants with better food. They have an "old school" way of seating, which, when we were newcomers, we found VERY confusing. Plenty of good supper clubs around with better food, and less generous pours. Give them a try!

“Gem of a restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

This supper club has the best food I have ever tasted. If you are tired of the chain restaurants, try this place. Very friendly atmosphere! You can enjoy a drink at the bar before dinner, or ask to be seated without visiting the bar. The steaks are great. They offer daily specials that are always very good.

“Dick & Joan's supper club by FRmall/frequent stop for locals/MUST TRY!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

Reservations suggested for Saturday evenings. Short ride from the mall if in the mood for supper club atmosphere and food.-Casual- All ages. Couples, Families, Personal Parties. Very nice bar area. Drink sizes are gracious and not pricey. Timely seating. Great small-medium help yourself salad bar with usually one choice soup, lettuce and vegetables. potato salad, pasta salad, vegetables and dill dip. All meals include salad bar, bake potato or potato puffs or wedge fries or frech fries. A basket of warm bread for your table. One person had petite tenderloin and potato puffs and said it was excellent. another person had the tenderloin and broiled scallops. This was an excellent choice but we kneeded to take a great deal of left overs home. Another person had the jumping seafood platter, which was a nice variety in a seafood platter let alone very tasty, again leaving extra food to take home. The wait staff was very fast, effecient and friendly and attentive to our needs. We did not feel rushed, The restaurant opened at 4:30PM. We got there early at 5:30PM and it was packed. When we left it was packed. It was easy to see people did not mind to wait knowing they would receive an excellent meal. I also think they are open weekly for lunch from 11:00AM-2:00PM. Please go and ENJOY!!
