Went here last Friday for the fish fry. It is a family style serving all you can eat for around $11 and $13 with a salad so very goo price for the area. Dorf house is off the beaten path so it's nice to get out Of town for something different. Drink prices are real good as well and the bartenders dd a great job. All other staff was friendly and attentive. We will definitely be going back again.

We went to the Dorf Haus last Friday night with friends for the first time. They had told us the fish fry was great and we wanted to find out for ourselves. It was fantastic! How have we missed this place for all these years?! It was the best we have ever had in Wisconsin.
Even though it is a little off the beaten path, it is well worth it.
Put this place on ypur bucket list........you will be happy you did!

Wisconsin restaurants compete for all important title, "Best Fish Fry" and I've enjoyed several throughout Wisconsin. The Dorf Haus may be the "Best Fish Fry" in Wisconsin - for sure, one of the top five - all time. The Dorf Haus is in Roxbury, near Wollershiem Winery, the Wisconsin River, and Sauk City, the home of Culver's. It is no secret that the Dorf Haus servers great food, so prepare to relax at the cozy bar and enjoy an authentic German bier on tap - Spaten, Hacker Pschorr. Our server, Stacy, was attentive and efficient with our order, and keeping the family style fish fry and german potatoe salad well stocked. Great food and friendly staff made this a fun evening, we'll be back soon. If you like some "old world charm", German food, Great Fish Fry atmosphere, conversation at the bar, schedule a trip to the Dorf Haus near Sauk City, I think you'll enjoy the experience.

We recently attended a Frank Sinatra tribute show at the Dorf Haus in Roxbury. The show was scheduled for a Friday night, which if you're from Wisconsin, you know Friday nights are crazy busy at all restaurants with their weekly fish fry. The front diningroom was packed as usual and we must have had an additional 150 diners in the banquet hall for the show. To be honest, I wasn't sure how they were going to be able to handle the additional volume. However, any fears were soon vanquished as the service, food and the staff were all first rate as usual. The Maiers certainly know how to take care of any size gathering without a hitch!
If you're looking for a place for a wedding, holiday party an anniversary or just a quiet romatic German dinner, you can't go wrong with the family atmosphere at the Dorf Haus!
