I met a friend here for lunch. She had the Reuben before and highly recommended it. I did order it and it was delicious. Service was very quick even tho they were very busy. Our server was pleasant and kept our coffee cups filled. A neighboring table ordered the lasagna special and the portion was HUGE !!! I would return... More

Went to the Hungry Peddler because of the high reviews/rating for La Crosse places to eat. Not sure where those reviews came from (family or friends of restaurant?), because this place is not good. Service was poor, interior is old/outdated, poor atmosphere, food was not good, steaks were overcooked. We will not return here, La Crosse has a lot of... More

First time here. Heard from friends the food was good, so why not try it out. We had breakfast. Wait staff was very prompt & very attentive! The food was tasty. Nothing fancy here, just really good food & service! I had the Western Omlet made with egg beaters & added mushrooms. This is served with toast choice & hash... More

We stopped in about 10 am on a Monday and it was busy! The staff seated our party of 6 quickly and the waitress had our coffee poured in a wink of an eye, and she kept them full. She was cheerful and efficient; the quality, quantity and price matched the service. If I lived in the area I'd visit... More

Fast and pleasant service. First thing out – a bowl of garlic toast, a basket of a variety of crackers, bread sticks and rolls, and a relish plate with pickles, radishes, and carrots to munch on. Nice to have appetizers (not charged for) that include fresh veggies! Large variety on the menu from more expensive, fancy dinners to many sandwich... More

After viewing a movie nearby we decided to stop in for a late lunch and it was quite crowded. Server was a real character, but did a good job. Lasagne snd Swiss chicken were both pleasing choices. The accompanying French onion soup and house salad were both solid as well. I can see why it's so popular!

This place is one of my favorites. I've visited many times and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is great and the food is top notch. Best French-onion soup I've ever had!

Read reviews here and lady at hotel said she never had a bad meal here -- funky old world decor and building but interesting trip back to yesteryear -- food as promised first rate -- from French Onion soup, to basket of garlic toast on table to the highlight of scallops "peddler style" (butter. mushrooms and onions with croutons) --...
