“Australian Camel in Menu”

Reviewed 24 June 2017

Restaurant is located on the lake shore and has some exotic items on menu. I was able to try Australian Camel which came with very tasty potato gratin and crusty roasted asparagus. Sous Vide Camel Loin ($38) was served with House Demi-Glace. The meat was tender and not really fat. I was afraid it would be fat, since the loin of the camel (found on the backside of the camel behind the hump) could be a fatty cut. I enjoyed the dish and was particular excited to try a new kind of meat for me. Artisan179 is a good place to try exotic meat, since they had also a meat of African antelope as a special. I also tried Cavatelli Pasta Niman Ranch Beef Braciole ($28), which was a good thin piece of beef rolled as a roulade and served with small cavatelly pasta. Niman Ranch, which supplied the beef, is a group of 13 farms, none of each is in Wisconsin, by the way. They take pride in fact that all of their cattle are genetically Angus. The meat was very good, the pasta not particularly remarkable. The deserts were all very good. In the end of the dinner we were treated to some unusual beer shots. The service through the evening was very attentive and smooth.

Service was very good, cocktails were good but a bit pricey, much of the food was quite good...BUT... my daughter is a vegetarian and there were very few options. She asked about the cheese plate--one selection includes bacon and there was no substitute. She settled on a highly average hummus plate and a serving of brussel sprouts with the request to "hold the pancetta". A quarter of the way through she realized she was eating pancetta. She cried. The plate was removed, the correct plate substituted, the dish comped--all very good things. But the mixup shouldn't have happened and it seems there could be a few more options for meatless dining.

We have enjoyed both lunch and dinner and the food has been consistently delicious and creative. So creative that when we did not fully appreciated the dish, they comped that dish which had us coming back again and again for more creative dishes.

We have eaten here numerous times. Always a great meal, great atmosphere and great acoustic music on Saturday night. Recently changed their menu and love the additions and of course the old standard like the pork chops that are incredible. The owner adds a personal touch to make sure you have a great experience. Highly recommend.
