Went here for lunch with my mother and I can't say I was impressed by the food at all. Not intending to go back.

We were looking for a good Friday night fish fry, and trip advisor led us to the Hungry Peddler. We enjoyed the friendly atmosphere. Jonah the bartender was a delight! Our server, Karen, was great! She joked around with us and everyone there made us feel like they appreciated our business. The fish fry was excellent! We enjoyed our Friday... More

One of the many older and popular restaurants in La Crosse. On Friday Fish Fry night you will experience yourself in line waiting to be seated. The staff is friendly and I have never had a bad dining experience.

The Hungry Peddler has such a unique wonderful atmosphere and makes you feel at home. I almost feel like I have gone back in time to the 1940s or 1950s. Very clean and nice with a cute little bar in the entry area. The food is fantastic and the service is great! Be prepared for a short wait for seating... More

When you see the parking lot full, that is usually a good sign. Great food & great service. Happy and efficient staff. Stopped in for breakfast. My husband ordered the Eggs Benedict with hash browns $7.69, and I ordered the Breakfast Burrito with hash browns for $5.99. Both were excellent. Reasonable prices, coffee cup was always full. I would eat... More

If you have a love for onion soup this is the BEST soup ever. The restraurant is a quaint place that reminds me of someplace that every town has. Very friendly staff and the burgers are great. Casual dress, go in for a great Bloody Mary or beer. Just go in and enjoy. Oh, don't forget the onion rings.

We stopped at the Hungry Peddler for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Every table was full, but service was fast and friendly. Coffee cups were always topped off. The food was delicious, and cooked to perfection. This is definitely a place we will visit for breakfast again.
