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.

The All American looks like something Spencer would love! We really need to make a trip out there.

WOW! Sounds like you guys found a great restaurant to go back to even if it’s an hour away. There’s a French bistro that REB and I LOVE for their brunch, but it’s an hour away. We always try to make the trek every few months because it’s so good. I love that you got such a whimsical dessert. I’m always saying that there’s always room for a little whimsy!

I love High Rock and always recommend it to people traveling to the Dells! My friends are the chefs/owners! :)
