Yes Roadhouse, stopped for lunch, TVs everywhere so kind of a sports bar atmosphere. Good size menu but little in the way of healthy choices.

I dined late afternoon by myself on a weekday on a trip to Fort Atkinson. The crowd was sparse which allowed me to interact with the bartenders and servers, who couldn't have been nicer or more attentive. I had a ribeye that was excellent. Wish this place was closer to home so I could visit more often.

Good food, good drinks, not too expensive but its moderate. We go there for mostly dinner and their fries and burgers are good. The front is very pretty if you look above it.

Decided to stop in after we discovered that the restaurant we planned to visit had not only changed hands, but was closed for dinner. We'd been to Capn's a few years ago, but thought we'd give it a try again. So glad we did! It being Mother's Day, we were pleasantly surprised to find that they had several specials for... More

The name says it all, it's a roadhouse atmosphere and has great food. Loved the fries and steak. The staff not so friendly but the food was good and at a reasonable cost.

This is located near the high school, so our group came by for supper after an event. Nice range of options. I had the pulled pork sandwich - which I also had a few months ago. Very large - so took some home. Good fries. Sweet potato fries are also available. We waited a while for our meals, even though... More

This is the second visit within six weeks for us and the problems persist. The service is excellent, from making the reservation to the waitress, all is smooth and timely. The problem is the food. At both visits, the food was terribly overdone (especially the fried foods, such as chicken strips or the burgers) or underdone, (two of us ordered... More

Went with a friend to watch a D3 UWW basketball game, my friend's alma mater. This venue has several TV's, and the main game can be had on a larger screen, in the bar-room with the appropriate sound. Many so-called sports bars have TV's. but never have sound, as the juke box, a revenue producer, controls. Unfortunately, a Division 3... More

Was visiting family in the area and wanted to dine out for a change and to give the cook the night off. The wait staff was very attentive and the bartender was prompt with our drink orders. The food was hot and very good. Lots of good choices on the menu for everyone's taste. We will return next time we... More

The thin crust pizza at Capn's Roadhouse is really good. Real friendly group of people and great service. I will continue to visit this place every time I'm in town.
