Our dinners were excellent. The salad bar was sooo wonderful with a great variety of fresh vegies. Excellent bartenders. Very attentive & professional servers.

First of all, I have to say that the service was excellent - our server was very efficient, prompt, and pleasant. The salad bar is also excellent, with some nice surprises like liver pate, and fresh spinach with hot bacon dressing. Bread is available at the salad bar, which is a good idea because we don't like to fill up on bread so it's usually wasted if brought to the table. For an appetizer, we got the crab cakes, which were pretty good, served with three sauce pairings which were okay but not great. The sauce that I think was supposed to be Bearnaise didn't taste at all like Bearnaise to me. The entrees were the big disappointment. Hubby got the NY strip and said it wasn't a good quality steak at all - certainly not worth the $27 price. I got the Lamb Duo, and both cuts were terribly fatty throughout. And adding leeks to the mashed potatoes is a great idea - I've done it at home - but the leeks here seemed overcooked and lacked flavor. I hate to give a less than stellar review when it seems like they are trying very hard to succeed - and they're new, so maybe with time and experience, they'll improve - but for the prices they are charging, diners are going to expect top-notch steaks and chops, no matter how great the salad bar and service are.

It is difficult today to find a homegrown town supper club with great food. The newly opened Watertower Chophouse in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin has accomplished the difficult task. On Saturday night, the night for the prime rib special, we dined here with some friends. Our unanimous vote: it is the best prime rib we have had out in a long time. This newly opened supper club features a wonderful salad bar, which in hindsight would have easily sufficed for a great meal! It included a hot bacon salad dressing(!) along with an expansive assortment of fresh items. The service was courteous, prompt and considerate - when asked to take our leftovers home, the server removed our plates from the table and boxed them for us. My wine, a Sauvignon Blanc, was very fine, as was my husband's Malbec. Prices, we felt were reasonable considering the quality and quantity of the food.

There have been so many restaurants in and out of the old Herremans that we weren't sure what we were getting into with our visit. The food and service were outstanding. I had the lake perch for $18 that came with soup and salad bar and a choice of side. I choose the handmade potato pancakes. It was outstanding!!! Best fish fry I have had in years. My wife choose the broiled cod and pancakes and said it was excellent. I would also recommend the vadalia onion rings with a jalapeno sauce. A meal by itself, and only $7. I normally don't write about great restaurants as I would prefer they stay a secret, but this is an exception. Our only complaint was the temperature in the back dining room. Unbearable. We said we would leave if we weren't moved. It was like being in a sauna. We were moved to the front dining room and had a great meal. Kudos to the wait staff! They did a great job.
