Gathered here with family as La Crosse is a mid-point as we have spread out. Beverages in the lounge while we waited were thirst quenching. The salad bar selection was simple, yet satisfying. The Freighthouse is known for their prime rib and did not disappoint....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!
