They were so easy and accommodating for our rehearsal dinner! we were able to use most of the dining area for our group of 38. We did a limited menu that people could order from and it worked out perfectly! Food was great! They also helped us with 'drink tickets' so guests could have drinks 'on us' and go to the bar to order. Family owned and run, great to work with! We were there in the busy summer time and they were great to work with!

I had dinner here one night and was totally disappointed. The service at the bar was extremely slow. The bar tender didn't even recognize my existence when he was filling drink orders. The second bar tender was just as slow.

I ordered the stuffed mushrooms and tournedos (not tornadoes as it was pronounced by the entire staff). For $44, this dinner was not worth the price. The mushrooms were cold on the inside and the entree portion was rather small and disappointing in flavor.

No way I would every eat here again. There are plenty of places in the area to eat at, this is one you should skip.

Sorry you were disappointed in your dinner. The Surf & Turf Tournedos is one of the most popular items on the menu. It is a 5oz filet served over aged cheddar,mashed potatoes with a huge crab cake. This is them topped with a classical bearnaise sauce. All of our sauces are made in house and are excellent. The aged cheddar is 10 years old which can have a strong flavor at times. The crab cakes are house made. This menu item is one of the lighter fares, so the portion is not huge, and neither is the price at $24.99. There is no excuse for the Stuffed Mushroom not to be hot. That is on us. Sometimes it does take a few minutes for our servers or bartenders to attend to a customer, especially on a very busy holiday weekend. Our management will work on providing immediate attention to all customers in the bar area as well as the dining room.

I checked the menu outside but there was no listing of non alcoholic drinks. The 2 of us each had iced tea and each asked for 1 refill apiece. Shocked when the bill showed $13.40 for 4 iced teas!!! Glasses were small, too. At least use decent size glasses for that price. The food is good but expensive, except for the early bird specials. We had the 1/3 ribs with 1/4 bbq chicken, mashed potatoes, broccoli, and rolls. Both meats were done and moist, not dry.

Thank you for visiting our family owned Supper Club. Yes we do give one free refill on ice tea and all fountain sodas. Sorry if you were charged for refills. Just give us a call and we will give you a refund.

Stopped by on a Sunday night and was so impressed, we were seated in one of the smaller rooms and our group of four were treated like we had been coming here all of our lives. Suggestions made by the wait staff we spot on, our glasses were kept full and the conversation from the staff were delightful. The food was excellent and be assured we will return time and time again. My only suggestion, might not be the best for younger children

We visited this restaurant on the last day of our stay in Wisconsin Dells. We had an early bird special and the steaks were awesome! My filet was melt in your mouth great ! Our server was very friendly and a lot of fun.
