It was like stepping back in time. This steak house definitely has a 1960's feel to it, but don't let that deter you. We went around 7pm on Friday night, so our wait wasn't terribly long. We had a drink at the bar, which was very reasonably priced, while we waited for our table. They also took our order before... More

Stopped in last Sat night and had crab and tenderloin. Both were done to perfection and the whole meal was outstanding. Will definitely be back. Prices are beyond reasonable!

They have some of the best fish in our area but the sitting area is just too crowded. The decor needs to be updated and they need more room.

Daughter moved to small town near Beaver Dam - Voelkers was recommended to us I feel I know something about a good steak or prime rib. Neither of the two pieces of meat I was served could pass for a rib eye steak or prime rib. Bartender was friendly but didn't tell you how to get a table, you just... More

Yea, five stars for a dated bar, cramped table and kitchen the size of some closets may not be fair to other restaurants, but look beyond the 1970's lights above the bar and talk to the locals. Eat the Friday fish fry, try the cole slaw and look at the price for a meal. I say 5 stars all the... More

Since a local told us about Voelkers, we have been returning again and again for the "perfect" fish fry. Yes, it's quaint as any Wisconsin bar in the 60's. Yes, you have to wait awhile for the food (the kitchen is smaller than some people's closets) and, yes, it's not fancy inside, but if you love crispy fish battered to... More

Great food, but slow service. Everything is art deco of the 60's and 70's, which adds to the charm, but the speed of the wait staff leaves much to be desired. A local hangout ala Cheers. Unless you're local to the area, it is a hard place to find!
