“This is a classic Wisconsin Supperclub. You can get a famous brandy old fashioned, a good steak and all the added items such as baked french onion soup, bread basket, etc. It overlooks Lake Koshkenong, so sitting outdoors in the summer can be fun. They also do outdoor lobster boils in the summer. ”
