Reviewed By AZ_I_C_IT_11 - Milton, Wisconsin

We visited the Dorf Haus on a bus trip outing and they handled our group of 50 hungry and thirst people quickly and efficiently. Several German beers on tap cooled us on a warm summer day followed by a meal of genuine German specialties. Many of the group had visited here before and based on this experience many will return again. you would have to travel many miles to find an old world experience like the Dorl Haus.

We visited on a cold day in November. It was lunch, and very busy but they handled it well. It didn't take long to get our food. I had an enormous burger with wild mushrooms. Their white chicken chili was good too. Great view of the river, and clean bathrooms. If I find myself in Prairie du Sac again, I will totally eat their again.

I love the homemade style of this bakery. The pies taste and look like you baked them yourself. Cookies and huge muffins are yummy. The owners can usually be found working and helping customers every day. They are happy to answer questions and make recommendations. They have created an inviting area to sit and visit with your family and or friends and sip your favorite coffee, hot chocolate or latté. They also offer some natural, healthy products.

The bar was nice, food was good for the area, and service was great. Stairs are not friendly to anyone disabled and the salad bar leaves a little to be desired.

Eagle Inn in Prairie du Sac overlooks the intersection of Hwy 60 and the Wisconsin River. From the comfort of most booths or tables, diners can watch bald eagles soar.

The menu is local, portions ample and service sincere and straightforward. Mornings are busy, but experienced staff get orders right and keep the coffee flowing.
Prices are very reasonable and quality of food excellent. Try the Eagle Inn hash browns or corn beef hash.

They have a liquor and beer/wine license for later in the day.
Free parking!!!

Ques Bar & River Deck

Located in downtown Prairie du Sac Que's Bar & River Deck is the only tavern in Sauk Prairie with a deck overlooking the Wisconsin River. Owned by the Herbeck family since 1977 and originally Sy's Place the business was taken over by Scott Herbeck in 1997. Since that time Scott has made many upgrades to the interior and in 2009 added the deck. Due to a change in local demographics and a change in the way people consume alcoholic beverages Scott decided more upgrades were needed to remain competitive. In 2012 Que's began to focus more on local microbrews, innovative cocktails, an expanded wine selection and a contemporary sandwich menu. We offer items that are not typically available in a tavern, and this idea has proven successful.

Our party of 3 had drinks outside overlooking the river. It was an amazing view! The Mojitos & Original Margaritas (on the rocks) were excellent. We then came inside to watch the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The inside of the bar was equally as nice. We all ordered paninis: roast beef, ham & cheese & chicken pesto tasted great! We loved the chips served with our sandwiches too. Best of all was friendly owner. He was attentive and gave us some wonderful local travel tips! We're so glad we chose this place for dinner. We loved Praire du Sac & hope to visit again.

Prairie House

Reviewed By Smooth F - Wisconsin Dells,

08/02/2017. OK… let's all put behind us the fact this restaurant has had a lot of growing pains and learning curves. Currently the head chef, Joel, and the understudy, Awesome Paul Anthony, are primerose chefs, with the desire to surprise and delight.

Several weeks ago, Joel made a blackened version of their ribeye. To date, it had been the best steak I have ever eaten. I am 53 years old, and I have eaten steak all over this country from the far East Coast to the far West Coast. It was perfectly blackened on the outside, and perfectly rare on the inside. My hopes for this restaurant were now raised to an all new level. Because I live close, I really want this place to succeed. Although this is something I want to work out, I have been very critical to the owner about where this restaurant has been all along.

One night, while trying a variety of practice dishes, Awesome Paul asked me to come back for his filet and give a review. Tonight, I gave him this chance. My wife had ordered the shrimp scampi, and I asked for the filet with the chefs preference for delivery. The shrimp scampi review, from my wife, was: "This has a snap to it, but I can't put my finger on it... and it's amazing." In my opinion, this is the best compliment any chef can receive. An awesome flavor which gets the attention of the audience, but is not something which can be specifically identified; this the perfect outcome. So, great job Awesome Paul. Now, onto my filet. What I like most about my filet is, I was able to enjoy the best of everything. The end pieces were perfect mediums, and the middle was a perfect medium rare. The flavor on the outer seasoning was as good as any prime rib I've ever had. This seasoning was an unexpected pleasure to the perfectly tender meat I was already enjoying. Our waitress brought me a delayed steak knife, I rebutted saying , "A butter knife will do" ...and it did.

As a very critical eater, I really respect a chef being artistic with their food. Chef Joel and Awesome Paul have a really good thing going. I look forward to future dishes and opportunities to be surprised. Be patient with this restaurant. It will be worth the wait to have such an awesome dining experience in our little community. I guarantee you, others will be traveling from far away to enjoy what Prairie House is putting together. The supporting staff is getting better, and better. The owner is developing a really solid team spirit. The employees are embracing the new Prairie House vision. I recommend giving this little gem a chance.
