Revisited the Varsity Club on Friday night. I ordered the broiled fish and it was delicious. The service was quick and the waitress friendly. The owner came by our table and asked how everything was. That was a plus for me since it indicated her desire to please her customers.We'll be back.

Merrimac, WI and the Merrimac Ferry area is a small place with few restaurants. The varsity club has great Friday fish, fish tacos and other food - give it a try!

Pizza is good, fish is awesome. All meats are charbroiled. Very large deck to enjoy summer nights. Good live music many nights. Come say hi to momma Schultz! Everything is home-cooked.

We live close by and decided at the last minute to go out to eat. We arrived at the Varsity just before closing and thought we might be too late to be served. The chef (also the owner) was very accommodating. We not only had a nice meal but were given a free brownie (homemade) and ice cream for dessert.... More

There has been a history of challenges at the Varsity Club and the new owners have thrown their hats into the ring. First time back in about two years for us and we were pleased.

Fish fry wasn't terrible but not great either. Au gratin potatoes were nasty- Tasted like boxed. Won't rush back. Way too many people working for the few customers. Needs better management in order to keep the doors open this time.

Stopped in for an early dinner on a Saturday. We were a little surprised at the menu selections in that you don't really have many options for dinner. Neither of us wanted a burger or pizza. The waitress, while very nice, must have been new as she needed her notes, which she didn't bring to the table, to go through... More
