The Waterfront Restaurant and Tavern has been changing the dining experience in La Crosse since 2006.  By offering supreme product and hospitality, we have become a favorite of locals and a travel destination all in the same.  Our menus highlight seasonal American cuisine that includes Certified Angus Beef and fresh day-boat seafood.  With a focus on the freshest foods of each season, our culinary team allows the ingredients to speak for themselves.  Every detail is appreciated in everything we do – enjoy the results of hard work and high standards.

Dinner Menus


The Tavern is recognized as traditional with a twist.  A focus on the historic prohibition-era antique bar inspires classic cocktails, regional beers, and excellent wine lists. This comfortable yet energetic space is a perfect setting to toast with great friends. Featuring a special Tavern-only menu of appetizers and light fare, we are also happy to serve lunch and dinner. Known for one of the best Happy Hours in downtown La Crosse, The Waterfront has become a destination for friends, co-workers, and travelers looking for great Tavern deals in a casual yet refined setting. Happy Hour is offered Wednesday,  Thursday, & Sunday from 3:00pm to 6:00pm.

Sitting along the banks of the Mississippi River, The Patio is downtown La Crosse’s best riverfront hotspot.  Whether you’re meeting a group for casual cocktails or prefer a full dining experience, there is no better place in La Crosse to enjoy outdoor hospitality.  The Patio offers a louvered roof and gentle heating systems, allowing us to extend the beautiful summer season into three. Open seasonally. 


As a secluded dining or meeting space for a small group, the Private Dining Room looks out over a spectacular river view. Connected to the restaurant and tavern, this private space seats up to 16 guests and can be accommodated by our restaurant dining or catering services.
