5 Wisconsin Supper Clubs

Nothing warms your heart and cures your comfort food cravings like a Wisconsin supper club. Whether you decide on a classic crispy fish fry or a steak seared to perfection, the best memories are made around the table.

Buckatabon Tavern and Supper Club


With a from-scratch menu that emphasizes local Wisconsin ingredients, Buckatabon Tavern and Supper Club offers a contemporary perspective on a traditional Wisconsin supper club experience. First things first, ordering a genuine Old Fashioned made using locally distilled Buckatabon Brandy is the only thing more “supper club” than a relish tray reaching the table. As for the starters, guests can share small plates of anything from maple-bacon Brussels sprouts to gooey French onion cheese dip with crostini and pretzel rods. When it comes to dinner, things are taken to the next level. This Wisconsin supper club is known for its world-famous, slow-roasted, herb-rubbed prime rib. And if that’s not Wisconsin enough, guests can also get a more authentic experience by renting a Northwoods shanty to embrace the great outdoors in a cozy, wooden shelter.

The Duck Inn


Notoriously, The Duck Inn was once a speakeasy during the Prohibition era, which is when the name The Duck Inn first appeared, as customers had to “duck in” for a drink in secret. To this day, this Wisconsin supper club remains a hotspot for delicious sips and bites in a serene country setting. Upon arrival, you’ll be wowed by the comforting Northwoods appeal of the entire space. If you stop by the bar, be sure to ask about the winter specialty cocktails, which include fun flavors like peppermint hot chocolate and hot apple pie. As for the menu, guests can start off their dining experience with an array of appetizers, from crab-stuffed mushrooms to parmesan-crusted calamari. For the main meal, guests will have trouble deciding between apple brandy-glazed duck, BBQ baby back ribs and a list of mouthwatering steak choices. All in all, from its rich history to its comfortable ambience, The Duck Inn is the spot for a classic Wisconsin supper club experience. For more information, visit duckinndelavan.com.
