They offer daily specials. Great food and atmosphere. Large bar area with TV's if that's your thing or quiet cozy rooms off to the side for more private company

(Deleted from their FB Page, but copied from my FB activity log.) 12:30 Friday, Dec.30 2016, my group of 16 walk in, and your hostess announces (with her soda in hand) 1- you're short staffed. 2- there's a group of 15 at the bar and their food will take at least 30 minutes, so don't expect to get food anytime...

We went for the Friday fish fry. We were seated promptly. The bar and eating areas are one big space. It is more a sports bar than restaurant. The staff were friendly and efficient. The food was OK... Nothing special. The prices were not fair for the quality of food. All in all...OK, but probably would not go back. :-)

I learned about the Joe's cut way back when they were still in Jefferson. It's a 30oz prime rib. It is amazing. Best I have ever had.

Yes Roadhouse, stopped for lunch, TVs everywhere so kind of a sports bar atmosphere. Good size menu but little in the way of healthy choices.

I dined late afternoon by myself on a weekday on a trip to Fort Atkinson. The crowd was sparse which allowed me to interact with the bartenders and servers, who couldn't have been nicer or more attentive. I had a ribeye that was excellent. Wish this place was closer to home so I could visit more often.

Good food, good drinks, not too expensive but its moderate. We go there for mostly dinner and their fries and burgers are good. The front is very pretty if you look above it.

Decided to stop in after we discovered that the restaurant we planned to visit had not only changed hands, but was closed for dinner. We'd been to Capn's a few years ago, but thought we'd give it a try again. So glad we did! It being Mother's Day, we were pleasantly surprised to find that they had several specials for... More

The name says it all, it's a roadhouse atmosphere and has great food. Loved the fries and steak. The staff not so friendly but the food was good and at a reasonable cost.

This is located near the high school, so our group came by for supper after an event. Nice range of options. I had the pulled pork sandwich - which I also had a few months ago. Very large - so took some home. Good fries. Sweet potato fries are also available. We waited a while for our meals, even though... More
