I heard a great show on NPR about supper clubs in the Midwest, so I was really happy to have the opportunity to try one. Not sure if this is the quintessential version of a supper club - but what I gather is that it should serve liquor, have music and a good salad bar with house made salads.
I was there too early for the music - but the salad bar was great. Not a west coast style of salad bar (with lots of veggies and sprouts) - this was the midwest style with pea salad made with plenty of mayo, a lightly dresses noodle salad with with tomatoes and cucumbers (nice texture and refreshing taste), coleslaw, potato salad, macaroni salad, pickled beets and more. And - the salad bar was constantly refreshed and kept spotlessly clean. There was some iceberg lettuce and lots of dressings - but for my husband - the pea salad was a taste of boyhood.
Speaking of tastes that take you home - he had the onion rings which reminded him strongly of the ones his aunt used to make (and people came from miles around for her onion rings!). We had the fried chicken (there are a lot of fried choices here) - it was perfectly cooked. Done but moist with a great chicken flavor. Breading had great crunch and taste, not strongly spiced.
The dining room was dark and quiet enough for a conversation and the bar was well lit and people were talking and having a great time. So, you can be sedate or a little rowdy here - your choice!
