The Blues Lounge is a great place for drinks and more pub type food while the restaurant serves up some amazing dishes.

I took 3 young men out for dinner away from campus and Piggy's did not disappoint. We ate in the smokehouse lounge which was busy this Friday night. Waiter Seth was knowledgeable, attentive and available. From beef to seafood, the meals were 5 star. Including 3 desserts, my bill was extremely reasonable so I consider it a value as well!... More

What do you picture when you think of a BBQ joint? Perhaps dim lighting, miscellaneous junk on the walls (think old gas station paraphernalia and neon beer signs), loud blues music, maybe an unbleached roll of paper towel right on the table? Signs with a pig wearing a chef's hat? While it's not fair to harshly judge Piggy's for not... More

As a native if La Crosse, I haven't been to Piggy's since they were at their old location years ago. I rode my bicycle and there are plenty of nearby locations to lock up a bike and it appeared also several spots to park a vehicle nearby. The location is definitely beautiful inside. There was a very friendly welcome as... More

We made our first visit to this place recently and loved it. Lacrosse is a great weekend getaway, and it places like Piggy"s that are a big reason why. Staff was wonderful, service was outstanding. We will return to Piggy's, that's for sure!

Stopped in for an early dinner. The place seemed very popular as they were busy and eventually had a wait for seating. I enjoyed the crab cakes and side salad I ordered. My sister had a steak and said it was amazing. Great service as well.

We went with friends to Piggy's in its "new" location (we used to live in the area when it was next to the river) on a Friday night. The building is a renovated foundry building which adds to the charm. We had the prime rib which was just right, delicious. Great wine selection too. Service was excellent and friendly.

Went for dinner and the food and service were outstanding. The server did a great job of recommending drinks, entrees, and dessert. He was so attentive we felt like he was only serving us. But he treated all of his tables with the same energy and attentiveness. This is a don't miss restaurant.

We were a party of 11 - and ordered our food about 6:15- it arrived about 8:20. The server complained when someone ordered an entrée as he'd have to go to the upstairs dining room to pick it up. He kept telling us that he only made $2.33 an hour. He complained when people went to the bar and ordered... More

IngaMari, I am so sorry for your experience with us here at Piggy's. The server that provided the awful service you experienced must have been having a bad night that evening because we had many issues with him during the course of his shift. The unfortunate part is that I am unable to pass along your poor review to him... More

Average Food, Nice Ambience, Good Service Two adults and a preschooler on a Monday evening dined in Piggy's Blues Lounge attached to the restaurant. 1. Parking was available across the street in a well-lighted open lot. No charge. As there appeared to be two theaters nearby parking might be difficult on a show night. 2. The main entrance is in...
