Delavan’s Downtown Deli

124 E Walworth Ave
Delavan, 53115
Reviews:
Sandwiches for a reasonable price made fresh to order. Croissants, wraps, subss etc. Ice cream and coffee ate sold here also. We had the ham sandwich and the salami croissant. Both were nice and fresh. The meat was carved fresh as we waited. The bread was FRESH. What more can you ask for? The decor is cute and old fashioned. Painted pink with a Betty Boop theme, classic black and white checkerboard flooring add to the quaint ambiance. My daughter loved the kids cone, which was under a dollar. 2 small tables and 2 booths house some of the friendliest locals.

Hogan’s Goat

2028 N Shore Dr
Delavan, 53115
Reviews:
First of all, Hogans Goat is not closed! The warm, cozy atmosphere lends itself to some of the finest dining Delavan, WI has to offer (bar burgers, frozen pizza, and jalapeno poppers). Friendly and welcoming clientele and employees. Having been coming here my whole life and am in my 20s now (hey, its Wisconsin) and will continue to do so. Tip: ask your bartender for a Piece of Ass shot or Key Lime Pie shot! Amazing!
It's your classic Wisconsin dive with all the character that others lack. How can you tell the difference? Three things (1) You can still smell the cigarette smoke from when smoking was legal... how many years ago did that law pass? (2) Bumper pool (3) An interesting floor plan. I like Hogan's Goat because it is a low-key alternative to the more stuffy Inn Between next door. You'll find all sorts of people at the Goat, given that dives have become hip. But what I like is that the Goat doesn't cater to any particular clientele: they're not selling out. You put up with the smell of the joint because its a good enough time and reminds you of your youth.
This is a diamond in the rough bar. One of the last real bars left. I walked in and felt immediately like I was in a Bar. The way a bar should be. If this bar wasn't named Hogan's Goat I would expect it to be called Cheers a bar where everyone knows your name. This bar has a sense of community unlike any other bar I've been in, and age doesn't matter young or old I'm sure you'll feel as welcome as I do when I go there. The bonuses continue with cheap drinks, and very good food. I was surprised how good this bar could be I went in with low expectations, but I was definitely blown away with the way I was treated, and with the amount of fun that goes on there. I would recommend this bar to anyone who has never been to a real bar. The service is great and it feels like people just getting together enjoying each others company.

Great new find in Delavan all homemade Italian food I had the rigatoni it was excellent. Definitely going back for the Italian sub
We cry everytime they close for a bit in the winter.... Love love love their food!!!!! Authentic and they cater too! Have to get something from the meat case if you go there. I've brought home their frozen mushroom ravioli before too. Yummy!!
An excellent place to enjoy home made authentic Italian food. It is a bit pricey but is well worth it. They also have a selection of fresh meats and pastas to purchase as well. The owners are very friendly and won't hesitate to help you get exactly what you want. Highly recommended!

Jo Jo’s Pizza & Pasta

Reviews:
When on vacation in Wisconsin, you know a couple things....the food and service typically is below average. Especially...PIZZA! However, we just found Jo Jo's while on vacation and were pleasantly surprised. Great service, and an outstanding pizza! If you like Chicago pizza, then go try Jo Jo's, just down the street from Lake Lawn Resort. Jo Jo's will be a regular when we are on vacation in Delavan.
Excellent food, friendly staff and fast service. I have dined at Jo Jo's numerous times and have had an enjoyable experience each time. The owners are always fun to talk to and very accommodating with any special requests. I highly recommend that if your in Delavan you give them a try.
Really good food. Pizza is good. The fettucini alfredo is really good. Lasagna is good as well.

Sweet Aroma Ristorante

Reviews:
The atmosphere was nice with the very friendly staffs. Food was good. Chicken Parmesan was da bomb
Favorite place!!!!!! John is the best......food is delicious!!! We tell everyone that we know that will be in the area to eat at SWEET AROMA!!
This is a great Italian place. You will need reservations. Opens at 5 pm. There were 4 in our party and we each ordered something different. We started with the spinach and sausage with garlic appetizer. Very good. I got the Rigatoni Basilica which was outstanding. My wife got the chicken parmesan and said it was the best she had ever had. One friend ordered the MaMa Mia. I think that was the name of it. It was steak and shrimp with potato's and some vegtables, I am not sure what our other friend got, but she said it was delicious also, All the meals were very good and all had plenty to eat. Desert was also fantastic. I think this place is excellent on food, good service, and reasonably priced. Most of the dishes are priced between $15 and $25. Real Italian Cooking at its best.

Reviews:
Truly one of the great little hidden gems of the area. Highly recommend.
Beans, rice, and salsa all tasted store bought. Tiny serving of guacamole so not worth the money. Sauce on fish taco overpoweringly sweet .. not near enough cilantro. Chips decent .. ground beef taco meat decent but very messy.
Great steak tacos, homemade chips and guacomolie. Homemade taco shells..

The Real Mac Coy’s

W8632 County Rd A
Delavan, 53115
Reviews:
This is one of my boyfriend's favorite local spots. A small town gem on a back country road just outside of Whitewater. It could use a few more tables to eat at so you wouldn't feel secluded if you didn't eat at the bar, but with the small stage that brings in musical acts, I can see that tables would get in the way of dancing in the evening. The 1/3 lb burger was nice and juicy and cooked medium well. I added mushrooms and swiss and it was a great combination. The bacon cheese burger that my guy ordered looked great too. And sour cream and chive fries - YUM-O. The bar has some "for entertainment purposes only" gambling machines in one corner, a well maintained pool table, a deck off the back with a few tables and chairs, horse shoe pits and a fish tank with large fishies in it that you can watch swim around. The bartender was super friendly and we kept ourselves entertained listening to the "locals" talk about area news as well as watched some TV. We will definitely be back.

China Garden

136 E Walworth Ave
Delavan, 53115
Reviews:
First of all, we didn't get the buffet so I can't speak to that. We ordered out and got quite a variety of items and everything was very solid. That's the word we all used: solid. Not great or special, but it satisfied our Chinese takeout craving. They do put a lot of vegetables in their food, which we liked but others might not. It may not be the best Chinese food in the area (Elkhorn has two places better) but it's the best Chinese I've had in Delavan.
Decided to take a flyer at this restaurant a few weeks ago. I had driven by it a number of times rarely seeing many cars in their parking lot, often an indicator quality. Only one person was dining in and one other waiting for an order to go. Resisting an urge to leave, I was soon greeted cordially by the hostess who gave me time to plan my order to go. The order was well packed and didn't leak during the drive, a pleasant surprise. We found the food portions ample and very good tasting even after rewarming. No notion can be offered as to why this restaurant appears poorly attended. The premises are decently clean, the staff friendly and the food very good. How much more can one ask? Hopefully, they'll be able to remain in business for a long time.
Food was tasty. Portions were great. Service could be better but I believe we just came in on the tail end of a large party...Give this restaurant a try!!!!

Greenie’s Clubhouse

700 S 2nd St
Delavan, 53115
Reviews:
We were here for a quiet breakfast after a night in Geneva and what a cute little place to stop for a bite! The setting is very casual and a wide variety of items are offered. There are plenty of specials on the board and I am pretty sure this is the kind of place that will make whatever you come up with if they have the ingredients. There definitely is a regular crowd that comes in here. I was surprised at how busy it was here on a Sunday morning. We did breakfast and I had the eggs Benedict. They were awesome. The prices are just where they are supposed to be here and even offer a selection of bottled soda and beers. I understand that in the summer they do fish frys and barbeques as well which I hear are excellent. This place is great and I am glad we made the stop! Maybe next time we will enjoy their full bar!
Good food and specials, plenty of variety (burgers, fish, blt's, salads, clubs etc), great prices (usually under 10$ a plate) and fast and friendly service. I have been to Greenie's several times and have NEVER been disappointed! It is true that seating can be a bit tight....but that just means it's a well-liked and popular place, right???
This review is for Greenie's Friday Night Fish Fry. For my taste it is the best fish in the area. They do a great job with both the fried and broiled. The fish is on the lighter side and I'm not over stuffed from the meal. It is not an all-you-can eat fish fry but the 5 piece meal is a ton of fish. I get half fried and half broiled every time I go. You also get a bowl of soup, coleslaw, and bread with the meal and all for around $10. I usually just pickup my food because its easy, but if you want to eat at the restaurant you can usually get seated pretty quickly. It's pretty tight seating.

Reviews:
Best pizza and meatballs in Wisconsin. Great service, friendly staff will definitely be coming back anytime I get the crave for some zaa!
I'd give it zero stars if that was an option. We were staying at a resort in relevant and wanted local pizza so we ordered from this place. What a mistake. We were told it would take 20 mins. Went to pick it up and it actually took 45 mins. They have us a free soda to make up for the time. Took it back to the hotel and opened it to find the toppings were barely cooked. Sausage was still pink and the temperature was lukewarm. Picked up a slice to eat and all the topping fell off. Ridiculous. We tried eating it with a spoon but the pizza was so bad we didn't even finish it. Called the place back and the lady said we couldn't get a refund because the owner was gone and he wouldn't be back for another four days. We don't live in delevan so I doubt we'll get our money back for such a ridiculously bad pizza. Should've gone with the yelp reviews for jojo's pizza instead. This place was horrible.
We love this place. My children has there birthday party there every year in March and August. Wished I lived closer again. Great pizzas around. We come from Pell Lake just to get great pizza. Friendly staff. Thank you for the birthday party place.
