A few years ago some family and I were in the area and had a recommendation to try Deano's. We arrived and it was over a 2 hour wait. We did not eat there that night but obviously it must be good to have such a crowd lined up. This past weekend (4th of July weekend) My husband and I were out there celebrating our anniversary and wanted to go there for a nice dinner since we did not get to try it the last time. We came upon an empty parking lot. There was a sign up that said closed. It completely ruined our night. I have never heard of a restaurant closing for a holiday weekend - especially one who seemed to have a lot of happy customers lined up. If we ever drive 45 minutes that way I'll call first I guess.
Although Deano's Steakhouse is not open yet it shows great promise! The previous Operations Manager of Milwaukee's Coerper's 5 O'Clock Club, located @ 2416 West State Street, is now the Operations Manager of Deano's Steakhouse. This position at the 5 O'Clock was held for 16 years by the Operations Manager. The original owner of the 5 O'Clock Club retired and sold the business. And as usual, things changed. I guess that the new owners never heard the term "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Deano's being located in Belgium, WI, population 2100 people, will truly being what their tag line says ..... "A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH."
Six of us girls went to Deanos after a big shopping weekend, and it was just like the old supper clubs used to be. A nice cozy bar offered an atmosphere quiet enough to allow people to converse. A warm welcome by staff had us seated quickly, and allowed us ample time to check out the entire menu. We were served steaks that melt in your mouth, and a pleasant blast from the past was the relish tray for each table, The waitresses were not afraid to be human, and served up generous portions of awesome food. What more do you need? The husbands were at home waiting for the leftovers. I am sure all of us will be making repeat visits.
