Went here because we heard it was very good, it was, and because it was close to our motel, grand stay La Crosse. Not many people out for dinner. My steak was good, prime rib, lyn had scallops, not quite as good. The servics was top notch, good black and tans and the price was reasonable. Give it a try... More

The bar area is great! Super cozy and inviting! They have a fireplace that is a great place to sit and enjoy cocktails with friends on a chilly winters night! My all time favorite dish is their crab legs, simply delicious.

This restaurant is "legend" in this region, and whenever we're passing through, it's a must-stop for dinner. As odd as this might sound, I look most forward to the salad bar. The old railroad motif is charming, and the fireplace (real) in the bar/lounge is welcoming. I simply trust this place for an excellent dinner out on any given night.

On a recent night out, my husband and I chose the Freighthouse. We had heard great things and were not disappointed. The staff, especially our waiter, were all very friendly and the food was delicious. Very happy with our night out.

I met an old friend for dinner here last night. I hadn't eaten here since I was in college (UW-LaCrosse, class of 1990). We'll, the prime rib is just as good as I remember. They do not take reservations but the two of us were able to be seated immediately at 6:30pm. I assume the weather had something to do... More

The Freighthouse has fabulous food, and great service. It's within walking distance from the Grandstay hotel....a bonus if you're staying there! Live music at night, we didn't stay out that late.

Nice atmosphere and very good food. We travel a lot to La Crosse I discovered a new favorite. Not the cheapest in town but worth every penny

Thank Sailoratvacation
