We were visiting family from out of town, my fiance chose Backyard for her birthday dinner (we are both originally from this area). They don't take reservations, so we arrved 1:15 early to get on the waiting list, on a MONDAY. Everything went well right up to seating, they split up the party between two tables.

This restaurant got very good reviews so we decided to give it a try. Both ordered the perch fish fry. Nothing outstanding. The fish was ok as was the rest of the meal. It was a large portion but that doesn't make up for lack of taste. I was surprised considering the reviews. I'd try another restaurant.

We traveled to Fond du Lac for business. After taking care of said business we decided to eat at at Trepanier's again, since we had a great experience last time. Once again the food and service were great. I was a bit concerned when I bit into my first onion ring, as it was hard as a rock. But it... More

Four in our party. Sat in a booth. Everything was clean. Waitress was friendly and attentive. One person in our party had the stir fry and thought there wasn't enough rice but overall the good was flavorful. The cherry gonache tart was delicious. We would definitely visit again.

We have never had a bad experience here. The staff...the food and drink...atmosphere...all come together for a place you want to go to all the time. They have a menu that will please all age groups. I have never been displeased with anything I have ordered. Try this place...you won't be disappointed!

This place was a real delight after a full day of traveling. I had the rib eye and potato soup. It was so good that I didn't even need steak sauce. The fried cheese curds were divine as well. The service, food,drinks, and the entire experience were great.

We were staying overnight in Fond du Lac and found this place on tripadvisor. It was very busy even at 5:00. The restaurant was packed with families so as a childless couple we found a table in the sunroom off the bar more tranquil. The hostess and server were very mature (I mean in terms of how they acted, not... More
