Description: Hōm, celebrates simple farm-to-table cuisine and the growers and producers in our community who share the same passion for pairing locally farmed ingredients with dramatic flavors. From bright and crispy to smoky and earthy, the tastes at Hōm draw inspiration from Wisconsin farmers markets, small growers, ranchers and local fishermen. In addition, the unique partnership between SURG Restaurant Group’s own Mike Polaski and his Hidden Creek Farms, located in New London, WI, is one more way Hōm can assure its diners the highest quality beef, pork and produce from pasture to presentation. “Locavores,” i.e. Wisconsin home-grown enthusiasts, micro-brew aficionados and anyone willing to catch a bit of Wisconsin sports fever for the evening are invited for a real, honest meal with a touch of elegance, in true SURG tradition. Welcome to Wisconsin. Welcome Hōm.

“Excellent food & service worth the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

Returned a second time to 8-twelve MVP Bar & Grill. We were fortunate to have an awesome waitress named Melissa who recommended some delicious sides to go with our salad choices. Everything turned out perfect! Roasted Candy Stripe Beet Salad with Steak & Truffled Mashed Yukon Gold Potatoes. Wood Grilled Local Asparagus Salad with Salmon along with Brussel Sprouts. What we find unique about 8-Twelve is that the quality of food is that of what you would find at an upscale restaurant yet your allowed to enjoy this while you dine in very casual attire. Some reviews that I have read said it is pricey. I say you pay for what you get. Both times I've been to 8-twelve I have gotten excellent service & excellent food worth what I paid.

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Food was ok, but way overpriced for what you get. Appetizer of cheese curds were $10 (yikes). We were expecting to get a heaping bowl full for costing $10 when we were given maybe a handful. Really??? This is Wisconsin, not Beverly Hills.

“Good food and Outstanding service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Loved our meals and will be returning with friends to try more from the menu. It was a pretty busy place for a Monday night and the waitstaff did an outstanding job.

“food looks awesome, tastes mediocre”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

I was thrilled when I saw the menu. Tried the tater tots, beet salad, and pulled pork sandwich. I enjoyed the salad, but the others, despite the exciting descriptions on the menu, tasted very bland. Could have used a bunch of salt and pepper at least, but these were nowhere to be found. I even didn't get cutlery and a napkin until after the meal was delivered.

Also disappointed with their beer selection; they had only 2 boring beers on tap tonight (a shandy and an amber). the bottled selection is decent though.

“Pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for a place to eat leaving Summerfest that wasn't some place we'd been before and wasn't one note ( just pizza or just sandwiches).
We saw 8 Twelve and thought it was just a sports bar but wow we were wrong. They do have a bar with big screens but they have a great mixed bag of a menu. There were 5 of us and we ordered 2 apps and the rainbow trout, citrus avocado salad with chicken, shrimp po boy sandwich, buttermilk fried chicken and pulled pork sandwich. Everyone said theirs was delicious and our bill was $89 ( no alcohol). This restaurant is farm to table and uses only local purveyors and area vendors. Definitely worth a stop!
