The rib sandwich is outstanding and the house salad is always fresh and served with delicious bread.The staff is always courteous, friendly and efficient. The renovation since the fire has... More

Our prime rib sandwich has been a very big hit on Mondays for the past 8 plus years. My team I'm in love with, they make this old guy look... More

Hadn't been here in a while. Had dinner with a friend who had never been here. I saw a lot of old favorites and some very interesting new additions. I decided to go with something new and have definitely added it to my favorite list. The waitress was super nice and attentive. I finished off my meal with a Mukwonago... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants to meet a good friend for lunch. The staff is always friendly, service extremely efficient, and the food, always, always delicious. They are very creative in their menu items and while the menu is not extensive, everything is delicious. If you love Mac and cheese, this is the place to go. You are... More

Made reservations for 5 to exchange gifts for the holidays and when we got there they asked if all of us were there. Three of us were with gifts in-hand. We were not able to sit or given an option to sit until all were present. The table we had reserved was right next to us and empty. I asked... More

I tried this place on a Friday night for the fish fry with 5 friends. Three of us ordered the "all you can eat" fish fry at $13. It starts with 3 pieces of fish. They also have a 2 piece fish fry for $10. The service was slow, and our server didn't come back to our table until all... More

Stopped in for a late lunch/early supper after some late season leaf peeping. Place is neat with a large bar area, dining room, seating on the front porch, and a spot with tables in the back. Parking is also in the back. Service was prompt and friendly. I had the Grilled Cheese & Ham & Cheese sandwich which sounds like... More

My second visit here. The first time I visited here was before the fire 3/2015. I visited after attending the Mukwonago Maxwell Street Days. I remember the building being historic outside and inside. I remember the inside with its creaky wood floor and ''natural'' brick wall. No more squeeky wood floors (vinyl wood look floor now) the interior is painted... More

A great place to stop for a meal. We would have driven right by this had we not had Siri telling us to go there. Casual dining and great food. We had the prime rib and the brisket panini. Would definitely have it again. The fried chicken looked awesome, too. Lots of choices and good pricing.
