Lots of history in this place and the bartender was very informative. Didn't eat, but atmosphere and staff were all friendly!

The bartenders are very nice and they make a mean Bloody Mary. It is fried or deep fried food, but they do a good job with that. Beautiful view of the Mississippi River.

Great location, good burgers, chicken strips and cheese balls. Great stop for lunch after hiking at Effigy Mounds. Right along the river!

Stopped here for a couple beers after walking along the river. The bartender was very easy to talk to and handled the large crowd that came in well. Very clean and rustic atmosphere. Anyone can fit in here, that's what is nice about Wisconsin bars.
