Haugens is a seasonal roadhouse type restaurant known primarily for its chicken and ribs. I find it disappointing although it has a wide following amongst locals and those heading north to cottage country. The chicken is Ok but nothing all that different from chicken I have had in other venues. I don't like the sauce served with it at all... More

When I visited, it took 55 minutes for 2 quarter chicken dinners. The staff was not friendly and the food was cold when it arrived. The building should be renovated and it needs a new menu and staff team. Sivas Chicken, the restaurant up the road is far superior, I would go there next time

The food was just ok. This place is getting dated and loosing its charm. Remodel the exterior and the interior. Along with some food menu upgrades. You need a chef Ramsay makeover.

My wife and I made a point of going there and were both somewhat disappointed in the quality of the food. Possibly we expected too much, but the chicken was so dry it was difficult to chew and swallow, left most of it on my plate and wasn't even asked if everything was ok, which it obviously wasn't. The fries... More

No idea why locals love this place. The food does not taste as good as Swiss chalet, and the restaurant really needs an overhaul. I would never return.

My wife and I both got a chicken dinner. The fries were delicious, the chicken was delicious, my wife loved the bread. The dipping sauce for the chicken was not as good as i had hoped, but the overall experience was really good. Great service!

This is more of an old fashion dining hall, though not one which is necessarily memorable. It has a good location, and the food is well cooked, but I am not sure if I would choose it over more popular and commercial options available.

Not bad for a local diner. Good ribs, good chicken. The place is dated. But the fries are great. Don't get the coleslaw. Great to go for the car night or bike night.

Still wondering how this restaurant made it on food TV !? Chicken was oven roasted and lacked any inclination to bbq'd crispy caramelized chicken skin and edges of the meat. Seriously nothing b to write home about. Mediocre food, hype for no reason. No different from.the rotisserie chain restaurants.
