We discovered the Pogreba during an overnight stay as we were traveling through La Crosse, and then returned for a couple's weekend. The food on both occasions was excellent and we were impressed with the menu and reasonable prices. The Pogreba has limited evening hours only, but the menu is impressive and the service good (but not exceptional). The restaurant... More

I had heard about Pogreba's a year ago but it wasn't until this last trip to La Crosse that I had the occasion to visit there. I took a group of about 10. The restaurant was very accommodating and flexible. It has a very fashionable decor and we were seated in an area in which we could talk and were... More

I am totally shocked at any negative reviews. We been to Pogreba 4 times in the past 2 months and we ABSOLUTELY love the food. We have dined at the "other" fine dining establishments in the area and Pogreba is in our top 2 ! Not going to mention the "others" by name, but we do dine out every weekend.... More

We went to the restaurant for a work event/dinner that was set up well in advance. when we arrived, we all wanted to have a drink downstairs before we went up to the mezzanine for our meal. We had 26 people in our group and they had1bartender. It took 10 minutes for me to get a glass of wine. Since... More

My fiancé took me to Pogreba on New Year's Eve. The ambience is comfortable and romantic. We enjoyed salted caramel martinis which was like drinking dessert. They had a limited menu for the evening so I ordered the beef tenderloin and my fiancé had the 16 oz prime rib. My steak was done to perfection for me (medium-well) and I... More

Very interesting location in a refurbished church on the North side of La Crosse. We had drinks and hors d'oeuvres before a show. The flat bread was great. Nice tap beer assortment and pretty good wine selection. I love it when I see Fransiskaner on TAP! We'll probably go back to try dinner sometime....menu looks pretty good....definitely NOT your typical... More

Arrived after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. No one mentioned the over priced menu. Restaurant was empty with one other couple at 5pm on a Sat. The hostess said, oh we don't require reservations, but I need to look in our book to see if we have an open table. Really? No reservation cards on tables. Website menu neglected to post... More

WE were there with a group on business and it was an excellent meal with an excellent job done by the staff. The customers were very pleased that were leaving the restaurant and mentioned that we were going to enjoy our meal. It was above expectations and all options were good. This is a solid local flavor option that we... More

Surprising gem, hidden in north La Crosse in an old church. You enter a rather unassuming addition and after hanging up your coat, enter the bar area. Just beyond that is the dining room, with spectacular stained windows left from the church. The menu is limited, but don't let that fool you. The selections are first class and innovative. I...
