“Embarassingly Rude”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

I was here a while back during a visit to PdC and was shocked & appalled when the bartender actually kicked a table across the room out simply for cheering for the opposing sports team on the television. They had been middle-aged and well behaved and certainly not rowdy...Following this incident we wrapped up our trip and left as soon as possible. What kind of an establishment does that? The food wasn't worth the price and although we weren't kicked out the service was rather rude to us as well.

“Great Bar and grill in a very beautiful location”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Nestled next to the Mississippi River this former railroad depot turned bar and grill serves a variety of appetizers and sandwiches along with daily specials. Food is really good ( We especially like the Wednesday and Thursday taco special) and the employees are great! Make sure to see Laura the bar manager.

“Don't go”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

Staff was rude and crude, if they don't want paying customers, might as well just say that up front and save the trouble.

“Good Burger by the Mississippi”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

We stopped for lunch on a weekday before the tourist season. As you might imagine, the place was quite. We ate at the bar. The menu has a good selection of burgers at reasonable prices and the bartender recommended the daily special. We opted for splitting a basic burger and fries. The burger appeared to be hand pattied and had excellent flavor. The bun was good with a nice texture. Since we planned to split the burger, the bartender thoughtfully divided it into two baskets, each with a half order of fries. The fries were chunky cut, lightly browned, but tender throughout. The burger came without condiments, but we didn't ask for them either. We enjoyed the ambiance of the old train depot and the views of the Mississippi as we ate. We will certainly stop again when we are in Prairie du Chien.
