Short ride location between 5 Corners in Cedarburg and nearly to West Bend. A historic old west style building preserved to retain it's authenticity but with modern updates to accommodate diners and a bar scene. The recent visits sampling the seafood offerings on Friday nights was surprising well done. The variety of dishes and pricing is reasonable and consistent.

So, in the spirit of "when in Rome, do as the Romans do," I did, and it delicious, more than ample, and served hot with amazing tartar sauce well worth the careful application by knife per bite. The house bread was so delicious I almost got too involved with it before the main course. (Memo to self: it's ALL good,... More

First clue on a Saturday night was that only 5 other customers were eating/imbibing at 8 PM on a Saturday night...we should have figured out something was wrong immediately; However, we had a birthday celebration for one of our 4 party and we ordered appetizers (FRIED :-( and drinks at the bar. The young , barely legal bartender made the... More

We were looking for a seafood option that wasn't one of our normal haunts. The boyfriend stumbled on The Jailhouse in a search, we checked out their website and menu and said 'Looks Good!'. Being a Friday night, we expected it to be busy...and it was! (We tried to call for a reservation, but they only take them for parties... More

We have been to th Jail House many times, as usual the food was good and the staff friendly. My wife had the lobster/filet combo, the lobster maybe could have been cooked a minute or two longer, the filet was prefect. I ordered the 20oz Rib Eye which was very good. The place was a little busy when we got... More

Fried chicken is amazing. Best I've ever had. And I'm from the south. Prices...well a little pricey. But their fried chicken makes up for it. Service was average.

We have been there 3x and will be back soon. Found this as they have low carb options beside potatoes. Walleye is amazing as well as the Prime Rib on Sat. Next time will try the Salmon! Service is very good and friendly casual atmosphere.

We went out for dinner on a Friday fairly early around 5pm. It was not busy and had never been there before. The waitress was ok but not as attentive as should be considering the prices of their steak dinners. You get 2 bread sticks and a salad and a potato. We had 1 glass of white zin. And 1... More
