Been stopping here for at least 30 years and have never been disappointed. Jumbo cheese burger with a touch of fried onions is the burger of choice. Not on the menu but you can make it a double if you dare.. Fresh ground beef cooked on a flat top right behind the bar do you can watch it being created.... More

Enter a cozy location which feels like a cabin in the woods. Staff was very helpful when asked questions. Take a seat at the bar for cocktails, Badger game and a burger or take a seat at one of the tables for pizza.

Good burgers and other pub type food, friendly staff and like the back room to eat. The other section can be a little noisy with the bar.

No frozen hamburger patty here...only fresh meat, cooked on a grill right in front of you. They call them jumbo burgers and they are. Delicious! The pizza is hand made with fresh ingredients. The crust is cracker thin. Cooked to perfection. The atmosphere here is friendly. We were from out of town but we were treated like we were Portage... More

We met up with a friend here for cocktails, which by the way they offer happy hour with $2 bloody mary's, rail drinks & beer. The food is very good! Steak sandwich is by far the best we've ever had.

Good burger in a old train car, and it's sort of cramped. The pizza is either really good or mediocre depending on the day you happen to go. They also have other menu items that are good overall.

This is not your typical bar food type of place. Excellent burgers with fresh ingredients and a couple good local beers on tap. Pizza looked great that several regulars were ordering up and will give that a go next time. Great Wisconsin tavern feel with ownership that obviously takes pride in their business.
