“Fantastic local food, right downtown”
Review of Invictus Voices

Invictus Voices
Ranked #34 of 72 Restaurants in Baraboo
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 September 2016

We found Invictus simply by walking past it one day and thinking "have we ever been in there?". Turns out, the restaurant had only been open a little over a month. Once we learned a bit more, that the owners focus on a blend of various cuisine types with locally-sourced ingredients and an emphasis on Ho-Chunk culture, we knew we had to try it.

Getting here is very easy, though the building can be a tad hard to miss due to small signage if you're not familiar with downtown Baraboo. Parking is plentiful and free nearby, with a lot right next to the building or street spots throughout the downtown area. Before coming, make sure you check the hours first on their Facebook page, as they are relatively narrow!

Speaking of their Facebook page, they post their menus there each day. Depending on what they obtained from the local farmer's market and other local sources, they change their offerings a bit from day to day. When we were there, we both had the same meal: chicken pot-pie soup, frybread, chicken pasty with au gratin dumplings and a fresh fruit bowl. The soup was terrific, and a fun take on the pot pie concept by having a big biscuit dunked in the soup. Frybread, although not anything spectacular, was very nicely done bread. The pasty was fantastic! Very well prepared chicken with smooth flatbread, feta cheese, and salted pecans on top. The au gratin dumplings were amazing as well, with a cheese crust blend on top of a creamy, mushy, pile of deliciousness. The fruit bowl was a great little dessert that offered blueberries, raspberries, cantaloupe, and watermelon.

For drinks, I tried their citrus coffee. It wasn't my favorite coffee, however, it was a nifty option to try something a little different than typical iced coffee. Their fruit spritzers were wonderful, and I'd probably go for that next time.

Our server was great on checking up with us and had a good sense of humor. Even the chef came out to ask how things were a couple times, and we were happy to share how happy the food was! It has an elegant atmosphere with a lot of varied and unique decorations, coupled with a strong hospitality feel. You can tell it's locally owned and that they care about each person that comes in the door. Our food took a little bit long to come out, but with all other things considered (and a wonderful soup to keep us tided over), that was easily forgivable.

For the two of us, we had a wonderful meal, nearly an hour and a half of relaxing time, and great hosts, for under $50 even after tip. I would highly recommend Invictus and we both look forward to visiting again soon!

Amazing, unique flavor combinations, locally sourced. The menu is as fresh as the food, and the staff and owner are friendly and accommodating. My husband and I enjoy spending a nice evening in their beautiful dining area or a quick bite to-go over lunch. My staple is soup, salad, and fry bread, but I can't wait to try the whole menu! A blessing to downtown Baraboo!

They offer a delicious selection of the day's fresh salads, wraps or soups for lunch. Evening dinner offerings are even grander. Small daily menus reflect freshly prepared, locally sourced food. Even many of the beverages are fruit and te
a infusions made right there. We enjoyed the hibiscus lemonade and some peach iced tea. The owners have been catering for several years before opening this space, and clearly care deeply about fresh, whole food. The space is clean and comfortable with some art and crafts on display. We ordered at the counter for lunch. For dinner in the evening, we were served at the table. All the staff I have encountered were very courteous and winningly, genuinely interested in our enjoyment of the experience.
Right in charming downtown Baraboo, within easy walking distance of shops and the historic courthouse square.

The Native American/fusion food offered at Invictus Voices is a new and welcome addition to the thriving food scene in Baraboo, WI. A beautiful, "small town" with a "big city" selection in food. The ambiance is beautiful and causal. A variety of artwork on display as well as an ecclectic choice in music. The owners were very friendly, greeted us right away and answered any questions we had. We ordered the Wild Rice and Porcini stuffed Manicotti with Alfredo Sauce, Chef's Special-Meatloaf with Mashed Potatoes & Gravy, Roasted Acorn Squash with Bacon. We also had the bottomless soup & salad-Fresh Salad Greens, House made Creamy Ham and Potato Soup and Zuppa Toscana. The meal was amazing and so delish! My kids are 12, 11 and 5 and they loved the meal as well, I can say this with complete confidence as all three of their plates were cleaned! We will definitely be returning, and bringing friends with! A must visit!!
