    JT Whitney's Pub and Brewery: JT Whitney's Pub and Brewery in Madison

    by dlandt Written Jun 3, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Generous portions of American pub food made this stop a real treat. Spicy wings, tangy reubens, mammoth chicken sandwiches, and a googalug of freshly brewed beer made this place a memorable one.

    Despite the great food and drink, this one wasn't very expensive. You get a lot for a little.

    Favorite Dish: Ugly potatoes :)

    by hunterV Updated Mar 8, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I enjoyed the evening at "Perkin's" restaurant in Green Bay where I was taken by my host family.
    There was a very cozy atmosphere, delicious dishes, very quiet.
    I also enjoyed eating at "Ponderossa" in Wisconsin for the first time in my life.

    This family owned little gem was quite the surprise. I had the best burger in a logn long time here. It turns out they grind their own beef on premises, daily, and they don't skimp on the portions. Becauser the meat is hand carved and ground you get the full third pound of beef, not something shrunk ot half its size. We LOVED this place, and it isn't even expensive.

    Favorite Dish: BURGERS! But they also sell Wisconsin brewed beers :)

    This is particularly good, traditional German food, in an old, wood-decored setting. I ate here last summer, and wow... just excellent German food that I would highly reccommend. And I think they had potato pancakes, which is a plus because I love potato pancakes! ;)

    Favorite Dish: sauerkraut and some meat ;)

    Eden Cafe: Eden Cafe

    My thanks to VT's noirastyx for tipping me off to this little hidden gem. It is located in the city of Eden, about seven or eight miles outside of Fond du Lac off of Hwy 41. We went there for breakfast, and what we heard was true, the mats were fabulous. The place is associaed with a meat market up the street. I liked the bacon a lot, and the breakfast sausage was really fresh, kind of tasted a little like bratwurst. Not only is it fresh, but its cheap! You can even get grilled trout and eggs.

    I've shamelessly copied and pasted moirastyx' directions on how to get there.

    Favorite Dish: Bacon and sausage

    Little Europe: Central Europe near the Illinois border (I-94)

    by dlandt Written Sep 3, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This little find is a gem. It serves a great selection of German and Central European beers, along with some great liquors. Plus, they have great deals on food. This is a QUANTITY place. Even if they just dumped the raw ingredients on your plate you would be getting a good deal. They specialize in schnitzels, but I had the roast duck, whioch was superb. Spatzle, cabbage, pierogi, and latkes all made great sides. The restaurant bakes its own bread and all the food is handmade from scratch on the premises. I wouldn't give the food five stars, but it is good, and you get a lot for a reasonable price.

    The menu boasts food from Germany, Austria, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and Bohemia, and stresses the culinary similarities between those countries, but the options are heavily tilted to Germany.

    Favorite Dish: Roast duck, done to perfection. The latkes were a big hit as well

    Roots Restaurant and Cellar: Seasonal, Local & Delicious

    A great Milwaukee restaurant with views of the city. Roots focuses on serving local and sustainable dishes. The courses and the drinks are excellent. The restaurant takes reservations but the cellar does not.

    Without a doubt, GALLAGHERS OFF BROADWAY in GREEN BAY is the best restaurant in the city. Located on the shores of the Fox River, its downtown location is perfect for getting a true feel of TITLE TOWN, USA. 3 floors of dining and a roof top beer garden open in the summer. The live music is fabulous especially ALIBI....the best rock group in Wisconsin.

    Apple Holler

    by traveldave Updated Aug 4, 2012

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    "As American as Apple Pie," Apple Holler specializes in home-cooked country-style meals and homemade apple cider served in "the friendly and comfortable setting that reminds one of Grandma's farm kitchen." The restaurant opened in 1987 in a renovated red barn that had been the milking barn of a dairy farm.

    In addition to dining, Apple Holler offers activities that include the Apple Holler Farm Park, the Red Barn Theatre that features musical dinner theater shows, orchard tours, pig roasts, hay rides in the summer, and horse-drawn sleigh rides in the winter.

    Apple Holler also allows customers to pick their own apples in the orchard located on the premises. The 60-acre (24-hectare) orchard was planted in 1993 and today has over 30,000 dwarf apple trees producing more than 30 varieties of apples. In addition, there are also peaches, pears, pumpkins, and sugar snap peas grown on the premises that customers can pick. The apples are used to make apple cider, pies, and other pastries served in the restaurant and sold in the Country Store.

    Cheese Shops

    by traveldave Updated Dec 1, 2010

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This tip is not about any restaurants, but rather the numerous roadside cheese shops that are common throughout the state. There are hundreds of small shops that offer many varieties of Wisconsin cheese, as well as curds (a popular snack in Wisconsin), sausages, maple syrup, souvenirs of Wisconsin, and other locally produced products.

    Wisconsin has a long history of producing quality cheese. There has always been an important dairy industry in the state (Wisconsin's motto is, after all, "America's Dairyland"), and cheese production has been a significant factor in the state's dairy industry. Nowadays, Wisconsin produces 35 percent of all the cheese made in the United States. The state has around 13,000 dairy farms and 1,260,000 milk cows. Ninety percent of the milk produced by those cows goes into the production of cheese.

    Wisconsin's first cheese factory opened in 1841. By 1922, there were an estimated 2,800 cheese factories in the state. And in 1921, Wisconsin became the first state to grade its cheese for quality.

    Although there are not as many cheese factories nowadays as in the early twentieth century, Wisconsin still has about 60 artisan cheese makers that produce over 600 varieties of cheese. Most of these cheese makers welcome visitors.

    Many visitors' centers have pamphlets highlighting "Cheese Trails" that visitors can follow to visit cheese makers and some of the small roadside shops.

    by Bryfred Written Sep 2, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wisconsin has many excellent restaurants, but the thing you have to do to truly feel the spirit of Wisconsin is to go to a Friday Night Fish Fry. This area was setteled by people who were mostly Catholic, who were not allowed to eat meat on Friday. So......... almost every place, including most of the bars and taverns developed fish frys. The meat restriction on Fridays has gone away, but the traditional Friday Fish Fry continues. Most places offer a variety of fish, but by far the best is either Lake Pearch or Haddock! It is normally deep fried and served with some form of potato (POTATO PANCAKES ARE BEST) along with slaw and rye bread. It is best when accompanied by a good Wisconsin beer. (Not as good as European brews, but not bad!)
