Great food and great service are the norm at Digger's. Midwestern steakhouse type menu will not let you leave hungry. The steak selection is excellent, the menu also includes ribs, and seafood. There is usually a featured fish with various preparations and pairings. 2 full bars and a decent wine selection. The homemade clam chowder is some of the best... More

The best steak and prime rib. I had steak & scallops. Hubby had prime rib - his favorite. The food and service were outstanding! The atmosphere was classic. I was even brought a wonderful ice cream sundae for my birthday. Good thing they brought 2 spoons. Can't wait for the next BD so we can go back!

Have had several lunches here the past couple of weeks. Chili is very good, reuben too, food comes out nice and hot and quickly for not being a fast food place. Very pleasant wait staff and nice downtown location. I understand its great for dinner too, will have to get that a try soon

We were looking for a quiet place for dinner with great food and a friend recommended Diggers. She said it had an incredible atmosphere and she was right. We made reservations for the five of us and when we arrived we had a nice table waiting for us. It is a unique place with history. Our server Melanie did an... More

From the outside, looks like a dive, but once in the door, you will be amazed! The atmosphere brings you back to old time supper clubs and the food is superior. The prime rib is one of the best I have ever eaten. The wine selection is fun, they were accommodating to our children, and spinach salad is excellent. Take... More

I grew up in Lacrosse and never tried Diggers which was a huge mistake. Stopped in this past holiday weekend based upon my parent's recommendation and it lived up to the hype. Not a fancy looking place but I have not had a better Sirloin in my life!! It was flavorful, tender and perfectly cooked(nod to the chef). If you're... More

This well established, highly rated,supper club, bar serves some of the best Prime Rib available anywhere! Their garlic toast, made with olive oil is to die for and they will bring you more. All their enters are delicious and Shawn is the greatest. Don't forget to make a reservation or you might be sorry.
