The food was decent here, but the real star of the show was the beer (as it should be)! I've visited most of the States looking for craft beer, and the Hoppa Loppa IPA has to be one of my favorites. There's some really great...More

Was here after a funeral to celebrate a friend's life. The place is very popular and busy. It's also family oriented as there were many children there also. The food was very good also.

This is definitely the place to eat when in Mount Horeb. We were vacationing in the area and ate there two of the three nights we stayed. We enjoyed the fish fry on Friday which was amazing. We also had the Three Little Pigs sandwich...More

Went here for lunch. Grump chips are excellent, and get the gorgonzola cheese sauce to dip with. Cheese curds better than average, and burger with Captain Fred's beer was solid. Our server was helpful and engaged with us.

Went for Friday fish fry. The cod was soggy and seemed to be breaded with Rosemary. The taste was aweful. Left with an upset stomach. The cole slaw, garlic mashed potatoes and pretzel roll were good though. Will not return for the fish fry.

I wanted to like this place more, it was one of the only spots open in the days after Labor day. It was busy and we were told there was a 30 min. wait, despite at least 4 empty tables. There is no place to...More

Get the cheese curds and honey mustard dip! They were amazing and really hit the spot after a day of driving across Wisconsin.

The wheat beer was surprisingly good, especially up front; finished a little watery. The deep fryer handles Snickers bars and the flat top grill is used for both regular burgers and for the vegetarian walnut burgers. As a result, both cheese curds and beef burgers...More

My partner and I stumbled across Mount Horeb and the Grumpy Troll while driving back from the House on the Rock to Madison. We couldn’t pass up the billboard that promised the Troll Capital of the World as we both enjoy odd little roadside attractions....More
