The food here is always excellent, but I will caveat that with the comment that it is not cheap. There is a large dining room that is quite open, and also space for large parties. The downside of this large open space is the acoustics If its busy, it's hard to hear. There is also a bar area separate from... More

We were on a road trip through the area, and lunch in the pub was very good. But it is a funky place--almost an indoor shopping mall construction with reception desk/clothing store, dining room, TV room, supermarket, and pub all attached.

The good reviews and the restaurants website touting their great food and European atmosphere convinced me to visit this restaurant. Perhaps my expectations were too high, but both me and my husband agreed that this restaurant did not meet our expectations.

Everything we ordered from soups, to salads, to sandwiches, to specialty (sweet potato) fries was delicious. The service was great and the prices were fair. We agreed we couldn't wait to go... More

Over the years I've made it a point to stop here and get food while on long road trips. It's a great place to get soup & sandwich, among other items. I've brought groups of 5-6 people here before and everybody loved it. Several times we ordered our food to go and we never had to wait very long. Service... More

We had dinner and came back later in the week for lunch. Service was good. Food was well prepared and price was reasonable. Decor was very European and background music was a nice quiet touch.

We stopped for dinner the night before Cranfest in Warrens, Wi. Service was great food was good but not spectacular. Local type restaurant fare pretty much as expected and we would go again.

Had nice dinner with group of friends. Shrimp dinner was excellent, Were out of Maihi so had their Tenderloin schnitzel ..meat was excellent , veggie side OK. .. Very good service, friendly accommodating staff, Ceasar salad was excellent. Pricing bit high but reasonable. Pleasant stroll through attached grocery area.
