Made a special trip from the East Metro to this supper club that was recommended by an Ellsworth local. It was just OK. Cute, small, cozy. I had made a reservation (for a Wed night) and they had no record of it. After a small puzzlement about what to do with the 2 of us they seated us. The service... More

I think our group had varied experiences. Cheese curds - a measure of a restaurant's quality around here - were very oily. The french onion soup was very good, while the artichoke soup was poor. The onion rings used thick, bitter onions. The filet of beef was excellent. The fried chicken was dry and fries underdone. Trout was flavourless. The... More

Hit the road to western Wisconsin with friends. Countryside eatery with a big business. Very busy, but Peggy kept us very happy. Kitchen may have gotten backed up as food tokk awhile, but not a problem as we were in no hurry and the staff was attentive to keep our glasses full. Chez Curds are special. Walleye done right. Worth... More

Yesterday my husband and I returned to one of our favorite restaurants. The hour on the road from St. Paul, MN on Hwy 10 outside of Prescott is a beautiful and pleasurable drive with green rolling hills patterned with agricultural fields and neatly maintained farms. The restaurant is open for dinner only from Thursdays-Sundays and is well-worth the trip. Our... More

We drove over special to visit this little restaurant, totally worth the trip. We had the lamb meatballs and wild mushroom bruschetta to start. Very delicious. I had the filet mignon with mashed potatoes. The steak was perfectly done, the potatoes were good also, could've used a touch more flavor on the mashed. My partner had the whitefish, which he...

My wife and youngest daughter did not plan on eating dinner here Saturday evening, we had a last minute change in plans ... and glad it worked out!! As we drove up to the cozy looking restaurant the front sign said Shady Grove "Open for dinner only". So my expectations were high if dinner is all they do. Unbelievable is... More

Have heard about this place for years and recently a couple of folks told me that we should try it. Took my parents and we were very surprised at how good it truly was. Place was packed and was glad I made a reservation. Seated promptly and Emily our server was right behind us to take our drink order. Nice... More

Hidden a little tree shaded glen in rural Wisconsin is one of the best kept secrets in the western part of the state - Shady Grove. It is chef-driven and has a habit of using fresh produce, raised in the area, to compliment its dishes. In addition to prime rib and steak you will find some creative appetizers such as... More

Brought a group of seventeen for dinner at Chez d'Grove. Hoped for good food, good service, and a nice atmosphere. Got great food, outstanding service and a great place to host a get together. The people at Shady's were exceptionally easy to do business with and helped me with the planning and execution. Cannot recommend it more highly!

So, Lyn went to college in River Falls, and use to hitch hike to this place, back then it was a beer bar, but now, same footprint but a very nice restaurant with a menu that you would not expect as it's in the coutry, but close to Ellsworth, WI. We have a steak that was just fantastic, the service... More
