Barviarian smorgasbord once a month. Great old fashions. Very popular. I just wish they had a better wine selection. Second generation of this family run business.

Words cannot explain the experience at the Dorf Haus. Authentic German food, best fish fry ever, best atmosphere ever, small town charm, and on and on. Excellent food, drinks and service A must on your bucket list.

Was pretty busy but the wait was comfortable with seating and snacks. Fish was done nicely and the sides were great. Friendly knowledgeable waitstaff. Overall a memorable experience. Worth the drive from Madison.

Old school family run restaurant, with good food, reasonable prices and a friendly atmosphere. Drove over from Madison to try it out and not disappointed. Prime rib was delicious, heard the Friday fish fry is very popular too.

Dorf Haus has been around a very long time and they continue to stay with what works for them in food. I have never had a bad meal there and the staff is always friendly. The schnitzels are my favorite and you can go wrong...More

Went there for their Friday fish fry and it was fantastic. From the German Potato Salad, the Coleslaw to the fish was all good. We love the family style service and the promptness even though it was busy.
