While recently staying in Lake Mills, Wisconsin to attend a family wedding, my husband and I decided to eat at Carp's Landing on a Friday night. We had a rough trip of 11 hours that day and just wanted to sit and relax and have a good meal.
Well, we didn't. This is a VERY small, sleepy little town, so their idea of good food may be a bit different from those of us who have done a bit of travelling and like to enjoy fresh food served well in a nice atmosphere. This is a typical dark, bar kind of atmosphere, definitely not somewhere I would take the family. We were seated in the bar because they said there was no room in the dining room, although they didn't appear to be that busy at 8:30 pm.
We ordered ribs and cod. The ribs were tough, with a homemade sauce that wasn't good. My husband did like the cod. The salad bar is definitely simple, as another reviewer noted, but is was just plain small, with practically no offereings, and it wasn't all that clean, nor were the lettuces chilled as they should be. Their bread offering consisted of a loaf of marble rye bread, still in the bread wrapper, opened and laying beside the salad bar...wow.
We were only visiting because of the wedding, so we would never have an occasion to go back there, but I wouldn't even suggest it if you were staying there. Drive a little ways and get a good meal somewhere else.
