Imagine you’re cruising along with family on a sunny, crisp autumn day. Everyone’s hungry and that’s when you see it — the perfect spot to sit back, sip an old-fashioned, cut into a juicy steak and enjoy a view of the fall colors at an iconic Wisconsin supper club.
Not only do these supper clubs have bluffs, hills and trails nearby with views of the vibrant fall foliage, but they also have savory meals that you can’t get at just any restaurant. So as you’re cruising along, be sure to stop and stay for a meal that can’t get more prime than at these 5 supper clubs.
Along this drive, you’ll see colorful trees dappling the bluffs and hills of Wyoming Valley. And nearby is a supper club that’s been serving since 1966 — so they know what they’re doing. Not only do they use premium ingredients, but they also serve the best steak, seafood, an all-you-can-eat soup and salad bar, and a prime rib buffet the first Saturday of every month—it’s a messy one, but a tasty one. Live music and Friday night fish frys set the scene for a one-of-a-kind Wisconsin fall experience.
After strolling through the wooded trails in Glacier Hills County Park, this rustic and rural supper club will help you refuel in style. What started as a one-room cabin is now one of the most popular restaurants around, serving all-you-can-eat fish and shrimp every Friday. Warm up with loved ones on cool fall nights next to the cozy fireplace with an Old Fashioned in hand.
Just northwest of the Black River State Forest in Jackson County is a hilltop farmhouse with countless dining and drinking options. The Friday Grand Seafood Buffet will have your mouth watering after tasting catfish, buttery cod, shrimp, clams, a Door County-Style Fish Boil, a salad bar and (of course) a dessert table. Their special touch is that everything is beer-battered and served with a warm cup of chowder. You’re in for a well-deserved indulgent meal after a family road trip.
After taking in Clark Lake at the edge of Logan Creek State Natural Area, end the day with another amazing view at this longtime supper club.
Their tender ribs have won multiple county barbecue competitions for a reason, so be prepared to try house-made barbecue sauce with locally grown cherries. However, you might want to try dessert first, as the house specialty is a delectable Buttered Rum Banana Pecan Pie.
After a day of exploring waterfalls and parks in Marinette County, follow the Menominee River to this supper club for even more breathtaking views. Some customers arrive by boat and dock right at the property’s pier.
Start off with a baked crab fondue appetizer served with crackers or broiled in a portabella mushroom. For the main course, keep warm and full with a Lobster Pot or traditional German Wiener Schnitzel. And don’t forget to make a reservation for you and your crew because seats fill up quick at this Marinette County staple.
