This restaurant is exactly what La Crosse has needed - a beautiful place with an unmatching location. The only that might be better than the riverfront view is their food and fabulous service. I would expect such a gem to be more expensive, but was surprised with the reasonable pricing and generous portions. The BEST beef I have ever had (and I have been all over the world dining at amazing restaurants) - they actually serve Prime! I couldn't believe such a wonderful restaurant is here in La Crosse. Kudos to The Waterfront and all their staff for providing me and my friends with one of the best dining experiences I have ever had!
The Freight House never disappoints. I have been to dinner here a number of times on almost every night of the week and it always lives up to the billing. The service is top notch and the menu is superb. The live music roster on the weekends is local yet entertaining and the specials are timed perfectly with the seasons. If I was in La Crosse for one night and I knew I wouldn't be back any time soon ... this is where I would go. Absolutely fantastic.
Eating at Beef and Etc. is like eating in Chicago! Everything is super authentic; from the Vienna Beef hot dogs piled high with toppings to the hearty hot beef sandwiches! I like the atmosphere too; every Chicago team is represented! If you are a true Chicago fan, you will love this place! Ed is a great guy and will talk to you about the Bears/Sox/Cubs/Bulls/Blackhawks for hours! I highly recommend it!
