You don’t have to travel to Wisconsin’s Northwoods to enjoy a true supper club experience. Right here in Walworth County, you’ll find a number of choices that evoke the charm, ambiance and nostalgia of these family-friendly dining establishments that have welcomed a loyal following for generations.
If you’re looking for a lake view while you dine, visit The Village Supper Club on Delavan Lake, situated so you can enjoy a beautiful sunset over gleaming lake waters. The restaurant offers outdoor seating plus a private pier to make arriving by boat an option. Family owned for over 40 years, The Village specializes in American and Italian cuisine and prides itself on homemade menu items made from only the freshest ingredients.
Located between Delavan and Whitewater is the historic Duck Inn. Once a speak-easy during prohibition, today this restaurant conjures up the best of the Wisconsin supper club experience with its expansive oak bar, multiple dining rooms, floor-to-ceiling fireplace and casual fine dining.
Another supper club with a rich past is the Ye Olde Hotel Bar & Restaurant in Lyons, located between Lake Geneva and Burlington. Built in 1860, Ye Olde Hotel was among the first structures in the newly formed village of Lyons, and it was said to be frequented by cattle salesmen traveling from Chicago to this small farming community. Today the restaurant is decorated with artifacts and photos of the town’s past and is known for its great hospitality, tasty treats, dinner, drinks and desserts.
Whether you’re looking for that Friday fish fry, rack of ribs, perfectly cooked filet, or a juicy burger, chances are you’ll find it at a Walworth County supper club, along with the traditional relish tray and of course, a brandy Old Fashioned.
