Restaurants & Supper Clubs

After you’ve worked up an appetite exploring the parks, trails, and lakes, fill up on artisanal grub at one of Sauk County’s fine dining establishments.

Let the Ishnala Supper Club, nestled in the heart of Mirror Lake State Park, spoil you with an enchanting night of great food and Native American history. Order up some surf and turf at Arthur’s, the finest in casual dining since 1966. And vegans will feel right at home at the Cheeze Factory Restaurant, where every meal should be followed with “to-drive-for” cakes and pies. Bon appetit!

Bars & Pubs

Spirited by nature, the revelry game is strong in Sauk County. With plenty of bars and pubs sprinkled throughout the region, you’re sure to find the perfect spot for a toast, a drink, and another toast.

Saddle up for the happiest happy hour at Bronco Billy’s Saloon, settle in for drinks and great music at neighborhood haunt The Sh*tty Barn, or tap every craft beer at the family-owned Vintage Brewing Company.

Cafes & Brunch

Around Sauk, we like to think of brunch in verb form. And we brunch our tails off here. We consider Bloody Marys to be the perfect side salad and treat breakfast-for-dinner as a regional pastime.

On that note, eat eggs day and night at Broadway Diner, a.k.a. “gourmet hash in a flash.” Perk up at the proudly old-fashioned Greenwood Cafe, where the fresh-roasted coffee and home-cooked menu is served under the gaze of the owner’s hunting trophies. And for a mouthwatering stack, Mr. Pancake is at your service. Go hungry; leave happy.

Bakeries & Desserts

The sweets and treats in Sauk County are more than just chocolate chip cookies and seasonal pies (although, we have those too). Satisfy your sugar cravings with beautifully decorated cakes, cocoa-dipped macaroons, and gourmet ice cream from the likes of Hey Moo.

Seek out Esther’s Bakery in La Valle, an Amish operation whose glowing reputation speaks for itself. At Neat-O’s Bake Shop, the honey buns are ready to be devoured. And just up the way at JustJosieCakes, Josie is cranking out creative confection after creative confection.
