Did a more beautiful Sunday evening ever exist in Wisconsin? August can be beastly hot in our state, bur with a calming breeze coming off Lake Koshkonong under a large white canopy, our 6:30PM reservation provided a sunset fit for the history books.

Appetizers range in price from $9.49 for Breaded Cheese Nuggets to $16.99 for Crab Cakes with Remoulade Sauce. All looked intriguing, but all of us were hungry for a cocktail and an entrée. After a short stint at the beautiful bar facing the lake, we headed outside.

Sunday Specials

Chilean Sea Bass $25.99 was also offered on that beautiful Sunday evening, and one of your Supper Club Review Crew ordered said Sea Bass, declaring the sauce delicious and presentation just beautiful. Three Roast Duck entrees, all covered with a delectable Door County Cherry Sauce, were plated beautifully; one perfectly cooked filet with a side sweet potato topped with brown sugar; and a full rack of ribs (a huge portion) all added to the mellow ambience from our perch well above Lake Koshkonong.
