We've never had a bad meal at The Freighthouse. My husband swears the crab legs are the best he's ever had. Fresh salad bar...mushroom appetizers..huge cuts of prime rib cooked perfectly.

Has great atmosphere and good food. Get ready to drop some cash here. Nothing is cheap. The food is good, but not extraordinary. It's a good stake place. It's one of the best options in La Crosse for a great stake. It's also nice location....More

This is definitely one of La Crosse's top restaurants. And arguably the best! All the food is prepared to perfection and the waitstaff is top notch. I have eaten here many times and never been disappointed.

Visited a year ago from out of town and returned again a year later just for the prime rib and crab legs! Great service too! The best meals we have ever had!

Arrive early and have a drink in the bar. Often they have entertainment which is nice, but also not great if you want to talk with someone. The acoustics in the room make the music too loud for conversation. Good ice cream after dinner drinks....More

This has always been my favorite place for dinner ever since they opened. The quality of service and food is always consistently top notch. Their prime rib is excellent but so is everything else on the menu. It is always our first choice for family...More

Only advice - no grungy wear. We were in jeans, but business casual would also be appropriate. I wouldn't dress up beyond a business casual level!
