    Weiderholt’s in Meisville is similar to Ranchero. Curious, what did you have at the Ranchero? I vaguely remember having a really good cocktail or three there last time I went..?

    IMHO – Both are mediocre at best with Weiderholts a bit better.
    Ya need to go up North or to that state East of us, they have em dialed in over there.

    The Hubbel House in Mantorville is nice but a drive from the cities.

    Indian Head in Balsam Lake has killer dinners and of course a great Old Fashioned to go with it (a Wisconsin tradition) waytogo

    You can’t go to a Wisconsin Supper Club without having one or five of them

    Years ago Jake’s on Tainter Lake in Menomonie was phenomenal. We swung in once 5 years or so ago and I was very disappointed. Outside of that chain of lakes being stacked full of manure creating algae now, the supper club food was slightly below average at best.

    Club 10 outside of Durand/Mondovi WI was an awesome stop 25+ years ago that I think closed. In the country, huge place, always had live music and good food.

    I know we’ve been to some from Rice Lake up towards Hayward that were good over the years, but don’t remember the specific names

    Does anyone know if the Pioneer Club east of Kellogg and south of Wabasha is still open and is it any good? When I was growing up in Wabasha in the 1970s it was the happening place.

    Fannies in Neillsville, Wi. Great old style roadhouse with excellent food.

    Club 10 has reopened after upgrades and remodeling.

    Yep. Still open. We stop in every once in a while. Food is good but I wouldn’t call it exceptional. The usual nightly specials. Friday fish, Saturday Prime Rib and Sunday chicken.
    Nice view of the river. The place is big but the dance/band room doesn’t get used much.

    You grew up in Wabasha? I graduated from Lake City in ’81.
    Spent a lot of time in Wabasha/Nelson area. Wonder if we ever crossed paths. Small world!
    Drinking age was lower in Wi or maybe they just didn’t care?

    x2 on Weiderholt’s in Miesville for an old school supper club, it’s not Manny’s quality but it’s solid. Birches on Long Lake is really good! I’ve heard Tinucci’s in Newport is a cool spot, but haven’t been.

    It seems like all the supper clubs around the lakes area here closed or turned into sports bars around the 90’s. I remember going to the orange and brown decorated clubs around the Lake Lida and Big Pelican area when I was a kid, and would be cool to see a comeback. Would take recomendations for West Central MN (Not the Otter).

    We swing in maybe once every 6-8 weeks. I’d call the food very average, but the nightlife can be alright as they bring in live music and some people off the river. Drinks are also more affordable than a lot of places.

    We used to swing in every other weekend or so on the tritoon for drinks, but now with the kids we head to sandbars more often than not.

    There’s a new place called Prime Steakhouse in Morris, which is West Central MN, but quite a ways away from the area you listed.

    The Laurel Supper Club on Hwy 64, east of New Richmond is really good…

    This used to be a go to supper club forever. Since before COVID, I know lots of people that have gone there and I haven’t heard any favorable reviews. There is a small supper club between Beldinville and Ellsworth called Shady Grove. We went there for birthday dinners in Oct. It was very good. Phils Club Tara in Stillwater has been very good for a long time too. The 5 O’Clock supper club in Cumberland is also very good.

    Mancini’s has that supper club feel, and has been around forever. I haven’t been there for a couple years though. We used to go often before games when I still had MN Wild tickets.

    The seafood buffet at St Croix Casino in Turtle Lake has frog legs. Or at least it did the last time I was there about 3 years ago. Turtle Lake isn’t far from New Richmond.

    I had to ask what they were when I saw them. They weren’t bad!

    @glenn57 is the Blue Heron still around? You knew it was a special event as a kid when we would go out to Cold Spring and the Blue Heron.
