We were looking for a quiet place for dinner with great food and a friend recommended Diggers. She said it had an incredible atmosphere and she was right. We made reservations for the five of us and when we arrived we had a nice table waiting for us. It is a unique place with history. Our server Melanie did an... More

From the outside, looks like a dive, but once in the door, you will be amazed! The atmosphere brings you back to old time supper clubs and the food is superior. The prime rib is one of the best I have ever eaten. The wine selection is fun, they were accommodating to our children, and spinach salad is excellent. Take... More

I grew up in Lacrosse and never tried Diggers which was a huge mistake. Stopped in this past holiday weekend based upon my parent's recommendation and it lived up to the hype. Not a fancy looking place but I have not had a better Sirloin in my life!! It was flavorful, tender and perfectly cooked(nod to the chef). If you're... More

This well established, highly rated,supper club, bar serves some of the best Prime Rib available anywhere! Their garlic toast, made with olive oil is to die for and they will bring you more. All their enters are delicious and Shawn is the greatest. Don't forget to make a reservation or you might be sorry.

Now, the table we got was right next... More

Had duck wings that were deep-fried and fair at best. I also had the spinach salad that was ok the chicken added to it was very good. The atmosphere would be best for dinner and I suppose I should've guessed that Based on some of the reviews. There were burgers and Patty melts on the menu maybe those would've been... More

A great place for steak and prime rim when you find yourself in La Crosse. Great service a great history and wonderful food. Make reservations as sometimes the wait can be a bit long. The prime rib never disappoints!
