Full-Service Restaurant & Bar in Onalaska, WI



We are now open for dine-in!  We’ve spent hours training our staff to ensure our sanitation and safety procedures we have implemented are ready. We are taking our re-opening very seriously and will be a Covid conscious business, with you and our team in the front of our minds.

Our kitchen hours moving forward will be 11:00 AM – 9:00 PM daily until further notice. Our bar may be open until later than this nightly. Please note the following changes to service:

🍔 We will be offering a limited menu for the time being as we start to reopen along with adjusting prices based on supply chain issues related to Covid-19.

🚗 We will continue our curbside delivery until you feel comfortable dining with us again! You can also get delivery to your home thru Eatstreet, or give us a call at (608) 519-2509.

X We have taped off or removed tables and bar stools from the restaurant to meet social distancing requirements and to further ensure our guest’s and team’s safety.

  • No parties over 6 guests will be accepted for dine-in at this time. We appreciate your understanding.

 We are asking that customers limit their time in the restaurant to 30 minutes or less after the food has arrived. This is part of the CDC guidelines for dine-in restaurants but more importantly it will allow more guests to enjoy dining in with us.

– All team members will be wearing masks and gloves when delivering food as well as practicing both old and new sanitation practices. We will have sanitizer available for our team and for you throughout the restaurant.

– We ask that if you are feeling sick, have a fever or have symptoms of Covid-19, that you stay home. We care about our team and guests and want to ensure the safest environment for them.

– All condiments will be served in single-use cups upon request. Straws are available upon request.

🍟 We will have options for touchless menus and on-table menus will be sanitized after each use along with sanitizing tables and seating areas when a guest leaves.

Please be patient as we navigate this new reality and ensure our environment is safe for our guests and staff.
