Good food, great beer and friendly staff. The Friday fish fry was a generous portion with really good coleslaw.

Our family of 4 went for lunch on a Friday and there was a long wait, which wasn't ideal, but the food was worth it! Delicious burgers, sweet potato tots and root beer! It's crowded and loud and parking was impossible, but the food really is good, so its worth it.

We like to come here on our bikes in the summer. We decided to bring the whole family for lunch around the holidays and everything was excellent including the service. They were able to give us a big enough table for all including the 4 month grand baby! The beer selection was great. I had the enchilada soup and a... More

Homemade root beer sure thing. Not as sweet as normal root beer. House made as well. Free refills. We had Rueben/sweet potato tots. French dip/waffle fries. Lunch time , they also had special but passed. Soups on menu along with soup of day. Salads, entrees, desserts. Priced average. Bar area was busy with food and drinkers. Atmosphere comfortable. Was nice... More

I visit a friend here every Christmas and in between those times, I dream of Grumpy Troll cheese curds. They are the best. Everything is great here. Food is fantastic and it's a comfy place. Prepare for lines during holidays but if you have to wait, it's worth it.

Very nice staff. Our server, Kathy, noticed my burger was a little overdone and within minutes I had a replacement (which was much better!). We like to travel to craft breweries and this was worth the trip. We will be back.

The uff da pretzel? Oh ya! Start with that bad boy and you may not make it to any other sandwich or entree. My wife and I did that, along with the beer tastings and that was dinner. Can't comment on other food but it all looked great. Seems to be the go to place in mount horeb for a... More

The beer batter fish fry, both cod and perch, were so delicious. The coating was nice and crunchy. I love the pretzel roll instead of rye, and I could get a baked potato. Baked potatoes are getting hard to find! I liked that they offered local wine. The down side to this restaurant - no reservations for large parties, so... More

I had the pulled pork sandwich and the chicken/beef nachos. Everything was good but nothing was great. As a tip, the chicken and beef should be on top of each other and not each on one side. The worst was the caramel, chocolate sundae. The caramel was on the bottom and after three spoonfuls the chocolate sauce was gone. The... More
