We've stopped here before, but this time the food was just okay. The prices were good for all the food we got, but the taste was just so-so. Best part of the visit was for the strawberry rhubarb pie we took home. Now that was yummy! Next time we just go for the desserts. Now those are worth the stop.

My sister's and me went tob The Pine Cone and were all very pleased with our breakfast. We all ordered steak and eggs and potatoes. I need to say this, because the chef made each of our steaks perfectly. One Rare, one Medium, and one Well. They all came out at the same time, all piping hot. Amazing, busy holiday season and everything was perfect!

I have stopped here before for their baked goods and they are awesome especially their huge and tasty eclair. This was the first time I ate a meal here.

Our group was returning to Milwaukee after the Badger football game and needed a real meal so we stopped at the Cone. After a short wait for a couple of tables we were seated. It obviously had been busy with fans like us.

Unfortunately many of the specials were gone and diner staples like meatloaf are only served on Thursdays. We ordered a range of items from the Walleye to fish sandwiches to the ham steak, etc. I tried the ham steak - it said it was one pound and it was huge! Too bad it was more about size than flavor. Others said their meals were good but not great. And probably because it is a truck stop they don't serve beer...

The one stand-out was their dinner roll that was the 5X the size of most dinner rolls - it was not just large but delicious.

Overall the prices are reasonable, the servings large but the food - eh, just OK. I will stop back for their baked goods since that appears to be their strength!

We stopped here on way home from Madison. Crowded but people come and go quickly. Had the daily special which included soup. There Pea soup was outstanding and it was a bowl, not a cup. We couldn’t finish the dinner so it home. Also included ice cream. Service was quick even though it was busy
