full disclosure: brad and i were treated to a free night out at high rock cafe – drinks and food were on the house. i am not being compensated for this blog post and, as always, all opinions expressed on the blog are 100% my own.
way back in december (feels like so long ago), brad and i had the opportunity to visit high rock cafe in wisconsin dells for a dinner out!
the restaurant is about an hour drive from our house and we made the trek on a very very cold & foggy winter night, but it was totally worth it.
high rock cafe has an awesome menu (seriously, we wanted to try just about everything) with a seasonal section that is updated regularly. we didn’t get a chance to talk to either of the chefs at the restaurant, but the staff and the general manager were very welcoming and were great hosts for the evening.
i was excited to order off of their seasonal menu, which was featuring cranberries when we visited. i tried the oceanus hopkins cocktail (cranberries, gin, ginger beer, & apple cider) and it was delicious!
i also ordered my entree off the seasonal menu. i had the wee-man sandwich (beef short ribs with cheddar cheese & cranberry horseradish sauce on a butter bun). they had me at cranberry horseradish sauce. yum.
before the entree, brad and i shared two appetizers: a baked potato soup & crab cakes.
both were outstanding. there wasn’t a crumb left from either.
brad’s entree was the big wow factor of the night. he ordered the all american, which we were told is a favorite at the restaurant. it is meatloaf service with garlic mashed potatoes & sauteed veggies, smothered in mac & cheese.
it was a massive entree, and it was oh-so-good.
that is definitely a man’s meal.
we rounded off our night with a delicious dessert.
pop rocks cheesecake! i loved pop rocks when i was little, so this was a whimsical choice. the pop rocks definitely still “popped” and the cheesecake was good.
thanks so much, high rock cafe, for a great night out! we will definitely be making the trip up to wisconsin dells to visit you again.
