Dark and intimate inside. Retains the vibe of steak houses of long ago. Makes you want to wear a wool suit and skinny tie, but don't worry if you didn't, the feeling is relaxed and welcoming. Probably the best steaks in La Crosse. The dining room is small though so you might want to call ahead to make sure you... More

They cautioned us that although they had very early seating...perfect for us as we had missed lunch, not all specials would be available. And they told us that due to reservations searing options would be subprime. And they told us where to park..not obvious, The food was fantastic...duck wings... More

We took old friends to Diggers Sting for our mutual anniversaries. They had never eaten there before. They were amazed as we expected they would be at the atmosphere, service and food quality. Bonnie was our waitress and she did an excellent job. She said the building dates back to 1886. Incredible. We had steak and various fish entrees and... More

Our supper was fabulous. The bread they had was to die for. Plenty to eat. I had a steak and mushrooms and my husband had the seafood special which was salmon and shrimp. I'm not a seafood lover but I was wishing I would have got the salmon. Waiter/waitress staff was amazing. We walked in and 6pm and due to... More

Read about the great food here, finally went. Weeknight and early, no wait. Great waitstaff, very attentive. The garlic toast is great! The onion rings were very good. The ham and bean soup was great. But the sirloin steak was not so good. I expected USDA Prime to be much more tender and juicy. I always order medium rare to... More

We enjoyed the snow crab & artichoke dip appetizer served with focaccia bread & garlic toast. The bartender was fairly new, but offered excellent suggestions while extremely busy & was very friendly.
