What’s on the menu? Wisconsin’s best comfort food

When the snow flies, Wisconsin restaurants serve up some of their best offerings. From warm and comforting dishes to must-try fresh foods that will keep all your resolutions on track, there’s a lot to love on the menu. Here are some of our favorites.

Grilled Meatloaf – Headwaters Restaurant & Tavern, Boulder Junction

Head to this Northwoods classic—it opened in 1926—in Boulder Junction in Vilas County to sample delicious dishes like pan-fried walleye, chicken alfredo, and meatball marinara. If you’ve got a bigger appetite, try the grilled meatloaf, which is served over mashed potatoes with a roasted tomato and mushroom sauce.

Drunken Mushroom Burger – The Rivers Tavern, Marshfield

Marshfield in central Wisconsin is home to lots of great restaurants that offer scrumptious comfort food, but The Rivers Tavern—located inside the Holiday Inn Conference Center on Central Avenue—boasts its own tasty treats like the Drunken Mushroom Burger, which features an angus patty topped with swiss cheese, bourbon cream sauce, and baby portabella mushrooms.

Filet Portabella – Norwood Pines Supper Club, Minocqua

This longtime favorite on the Oneida County-Vilas County border offers delicious food and a classic supper club ambience on the shores of Patricia Lake. Norwood Pines’ supper club is filled with outstanding dishes, from lobster to salmon to duck, but the filet portabella offers a taste of decadence—it’s an 8-ounce tenderloin filet filled with sauteed portabella mushrooms and garlic topped with melted burgundy butter.

Mini Truffle Grilled Cheese Sandwich – Father Fats Public House, Stevens Point

Father Fat’s Public House is a must-stop in central Wisconsin, with hearty dishes like  braised Angus beef short ribs, fried chicken & waffles, and pork belly & beef chili fries. A snackable choice for an opener? The mini truffle grilled cheese sandwiches, which are served with homemade marinara sauce.
