“Tried again, 100 times better!”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Wow. When I visited Pogreba a couple years ago, I had a bad experience - bad food and bad service. I went there again a couple days ago and had the best meal I've eaten in recent memory AND outstanding service.

I ordered Parmesan Crusted Salmon, and it was incredibly tasty. It was a rather large portion (8 oz.), so I intended to eat half and take half home. HA! I cleaned my plate. The salmon, wild rice medley, and asparagus were all just too good to not finish.

Our waiter knew every last detail about the menu. We asked a lot of questions, and he could answer everything. He described each menu item in thorough detail and was friendly and professional.

My dinner companion ordered dessert -- a lovely key lime dessert with lots of whipped cream and limoncello poured over the top. I had a bite, and again - the best thing you can even imagine.

One sort of interesting thing about Pogreba is the atmosphere. It's pretty classy, but the thing that struck me is that, though the restaurant was full, it wasn't noisy.

I wish I could delete my old review. They've completely turned things around. I can't wait to go back!

If you are in La Crosse, you should try Pogreba. They have a unique menu and are definitely one of the most upscale restaurants in town!

“So Good!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

My husband and I eat here at least once a month and the food is great! It's very nice in here and the service is great. The bacon wrapped cheese curds and the pork belly are great appetizers! We have yet to try something we don't enjoy.

“Great atmosphere and martinis!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

Went here for my 29th bday and had drinks and appetizers. They make a killer blue cheese dirty martini called "Old Blue Eyes." Yum! We also did the shrimp bruchetta which was pretty good, and the bacon wrapped cheesecurds are awesome. (Who's surprised with that amazingly unhealthy and delicious combination??) The entrees are relatively expensive for this area, so plan to spend upwards of $30/plate. The embience is great, as other reviews have mentioned. Maybe it'd be the perfect happy hour location? Cheers!
