The best, especially on Sunday when the pancakes are made by "the girls ". Have never had bad food. Nice to see other "real people " there. Great biking stop.

I ordered the shroom burger on my last visit, along with the homemade chips and jalapeno poppers made with cheese, apple and wrapped in bacon. Superb!

This is my kind of place. Family owned and quirky with great food. The Roxbury Tavern is comfortable and homey. The staff knows the customers and tends to their needs.I was impressed with the food and would definitely return.

This place is a true classic. You just get a nice feeling when you enter. It reminds me of small town pubs in Europe. They have great Wisconsin beers on tap and awesome service! The nice girl who works the bar has been there forever and knows quality service. The food is healthy and spectacular. Everything is purchased locally. They... More

The owner wanted to build this tavern from a place where biker types played pool and drank too much into a quality family restaurant. So he got rid of the pool table and changed up the types of beers available. Sunday brunch is busy because the food is just so good. We also went for a fish fry and I... More

Tried this place quite e few times over the past 3 years and to no avail each time we were let down. Went for the "special" of the day one time - "Sold out" and it was early in the evening yet and was still being advertised upon arrival. Another time had the food one person in the party got...

This is an old school Wisconsin tavern. The owner will throw any one who swears out immediately so can take you kids for lunch , have a beer and not worry that some nimrod is getting wasted tossing F-bombs. The food can be hit or miss but that should be expected. Just ask what is good that day.

This is one of my favorite places, it has a feel of a European local restaurant. They do run out of specials sometimes but that is a good thing as you know that everything is always fresh and the specials are for that evening only. I also like that they support local food and drink vendors. The service is always... More

A step back in time this aged old bar & eatery is a great place to get fresh homemade comfort food in a small village atmosphere. I'm partial to the Rox burger loaded with a fresh ground beef patty topped with ham,cheese,egg & bacon on a wheat bun and fresh hand cut French fries. There Mexican food is all scratch... More

Stopped here on a Friday night to get away from the crowds on this fourth of July weekend. It's a pleasant place and a reminder of how Wisconsin bars are supposed to be. I had the fish fly, but on this night the fish, which is in small pieces, was overcooked and dry. The cheesy hash browns were very good... More
