Explore the Best of Driftless Wisconsin Dining

With so many wonderful dining opportunities in the nearby metropolitan areas like Milwaukee, Madison, and even Chicago, Driftless Wisconsin may not be on the top of your list when it comes to exploring fantastic new food venues.  That’s an understandable mindset, but we strongly urge you to reconsider.  Driftless Wisconsin dining may not be able to keep up with the fast-paced trends found in downtown Milwaukee, but we can offer the traditional Midwest supper clubs and neighborhood pubs that Wisconsin is famous for.  With such a high concentration of organic farms and farmer’s markets found throughout the Driftless Area, our region’s restaurants also have a diverse offering of local, farm-fresh produce.  Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city this summer, and stay with us for a weekend in Driftless Wisconsin.  This summer, let your tastebuds do the exploring, as you set off to discover the best of Driftless Wisconsin dining.

Driftless Wisconsin Dining

One of the best things about getting away to Driftless Wisconsin is enjoying the relaxed pace of life that you’ll still find here, not to mention the unique, rugged landscapes that give Driftless Wisconsin its name.  Let your tastebuds be your guide as you head out to explore the Driftless Area.  Head north from our Vacation Rental in the morning, and start your morning off with a hike through the hills of the beautiful Wildcat Mountain State Park, where you’ll find some of the best views out of the Driftless Wisconsin landscapes.  After a vigorous morning of exercise, refuel with a scrumptious lunch and beer at Hillsboro Brewing Company.  While there, don’t miss your chance to try their famous Joe Beer or the Hillsboro Pale Ale.  As the afternoon dwindles on, wind along through the country roads into the heart of the Driftless Area, and follow one of the most picturesque sections of the Kickapoo River, as you make your way for some afternoon wine tasting and an appetizer at Tangled Hickory Wine Bar in downtown Viroqua.

If you choose to stay in Viroqua, you can enjoy a tasty dinner at Tangled Hickory Wine Bar, or one of the other local restaurants before heading out to the many charming boutique shops in the area.  If you’d rather extend your adventure, head further south to Prairie du Chien to dine at one of the last true supper clubs in the area, Jones’ Black Angus Supper Club.  After an evening of good food and fun, end your beautiful tour around the best of Driftless Wisconsin, and come back to our relaxing Vacation Rental for a welcome night of rest.
