Located in a former railroad warehouse-type building. Steak, seafood, prime rib menu along with burgers. There's a small salad bar included with dinner selections. Server was friendly and attentive but not hovering. There were four of us and we all enjoyed the food. The food...More

Just walking by this restaurant which is on a street of many pubs, bars and restaurants, we didn't expect the food to be so good. The prime rib was wonderful. Will go there again.

We chose to walk to the Freighthouse Restaurant from our hotel downtown. The décor in the restaurant was very nice - and it used items from it's former life as a train depot. The food was delicious, and the waitstaff were attentive.

I knew this was a steak place but was not sure how I would like it since I am a seafood/fish person. The night we were there, we ordered the halibut. Everything about our meal was OUTSTANDING! Definitely recommend this place.

We took my wife's elderly parents to The Freight House for an early dinner. Our waiter was Preston and he did an amazing job. We had a nice corner table. We ordered a mix of steak and fish as well as crab legs and with...More

The Freighthouse is an old-school steak and seafood restaurant that has a long tradition in La Crosse, so don't expect any eye-opening experiences. On the other hand, given that they aren't striving for anything edgy, I think they did an "okay" job, so I rated...More
