Jansen’s Banquet & Catering

1245 Whitewater Ave
Fort Atkinson, 53538
Reviews:
I was recently involved in the decorations for a wedding reception that required extra time for set up and tear down and I was delighted with how accommodating Jansen's was in order to manage this project. The dinner for the wedding reception was excellent and the service was very friendly as well. I would recommend then in a heartbeat.

Dragon China

Reviews:
I love this place, especially for lunch. I have more food than I can eat for $4.55, $4.80 with the tax. Currently taking a break from my Kung Bo Chicken with fried rice. I usually get sesame chicken, but I thought I'd stay away from deep fried stuff this time. The atmosphere isn't much. Order at the counter, and either take home or eat at their tables. Seems many Chinese restaurants go this way. But it is, after all, about the food, not decor.

I have order from the Fort Atkinson Domino's for a couple of years and they always deliver a hot fresh pizza,the drivers here are fast and courteous. I am sad that I will be moving out of the area. This has to be the best Domino's location I have had the pleasure of dealing with. Keep up the good work!

Paddy Coughlins Pub

14 Sherman Ave E
Fort Atkinson, 53538
Reviews:
Quick review: I don't spend a lot of time in Fort Atkinson, but when I do, I'll spend it at Paddy Coughlins. Great food, great service, decent tap selection, fair prices, and a fun atmosphere - this place is a WIN. Detailed review: Some friends of mine had given Paddy Coughlins Pub a favorable review, so when the possibility of visiting the Irish-themed establishment presented itself, I jumped on the opportunity. We made the short drive to Fort Atkinson, found parking in front of the bar (on the street, but there's also a large lot across the street as well), and wandered in to the crowded bar. Make no mistake - this is first and foremost a bar/pub. There are a bunch of tables with comfy chairs; the larger tables can accommodate groups as large as 8. There are flat screen TVs mounted high-up; the ceiling in this place is quite lofty as well, which adds to the open and airy feeling. The bar features about 10-12 taps, most of which are European in nature; taps that came to mind include: Smithwicks, Stella Artois, Kilt Lifter, Guinness (of course!), Spotted Cow, and a few others that escape me. Bottled selections are decent, but not "expansive." No worries; there's sure to be something for all to enjoy. Prices? Totally fair - our first round which included 2 Lake Louie Scotch Warped Ales (in bottles), a UV-Lemonade, and a soda, was $10. Appetizers are interesting and from what we sampled, very well prepared. The pint of pretzels is interesting - it's exactly as titled; a pint glass, filled with "two-bite" soft pretzel sticks and served with a creamy mustard on the side. The pretzels taste an awful lot like the supermarket-frozen type of softbake pretzels, but that's ok. They definitely hit the spot. White cheddar cheese curds were superb as well. The menu offers a wide variety of food, from burgers and 'wiches to seafood and traditional Irish/UK grub. We ordered a little bit of everything: burgers, fried egg sandwiches, the reuben and fish tacos. Side options included fries, sweet potato fries, or homemade chips. Most opted for the sweet potato fries, which were quite easily the best sweet potato fries this reviewer has ever sampled. The grilled mahi mahi fish tacos featured a lightly grilled mahi with crispy grilled veggies (onions and bell peppers). No cheese, no grease, no dressings - just a nice, clean fish taco. Yum. I'm told the other dishes were fantastic; I sampled the homemade rye from the reuben and loved it. The portions looked to be more than ample. We finished things off with the bread pudding and the Guinness cake. Both were ok; the cake was a tad dry, and the pudding was a tad runny, but it was all good. We really enjoyed the entire evening; our waitress was fantastic, even though the place was slammed. She never missed a beat. Paddy Coughlins Pub = WIN Service = 4.25 stars Food = 4.25 stars Value = 4 stars Misc = 4.25 stars A solid establishment - easily the best "pub" in the area. I'd go here for drinks, appetizers, lunch, or dinner any time, and I live 50+ miles away.
Great Food...great service!! Enjoyed kayaking all day on the river and finished with the perfect meal...we are from Western Subs of Chicago :-)
We eat and drink here quite regularly and I can't say that I've ever had a bad experience. Nearly everything is made from scratch with fresh ingredients, which in Fort is saying something. And while somewhat lacking in truly Irish selections, they know how to do pub grub: the fries are superb, as are the reuben, paddy melt, wings (Tuesday nights only, best deal in town), soft pretzel sticks, soups and salads, and just about everything else we've tried. The Friday night fish fry is also top notch - whatever the special is that night is almost always fantastic. The draft beer selection is the best in town, with several rotating taps (always one IPA or other hoppy beer, and then usually one lighter and one darker selection) and a solid lineup of Irish classics (Guinness, Harp, Smithwick's, Kilkenny). The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming, with lots of pub ambiance, a solid wood and brass bar that is great for ponying up to, and just the right amount of Irish kitsch. There are a couple TVs, but they aren't intrusive, and music is well selected and kept at a moderate volume which makes it a great place for hanging out and chatting with friends even on busy nights. Most importantly, the owners/bartenders/waitstaff are all incredibly friendly, accomodating of requests, and generally fantastic human beings. In sum, we really love Paddy's. It's an unexpected gem in the middle of Fort Atkinson. P.S. We got the bread pudding for dessert a few nights ago and it was RIDICULOUSLY good. I had no idea.

Mangiami Italiano

226 S Main St
Fort Atkinson, 53538
Reviews:
Gotta try the "Pasta Rags" off-the-menu special. Though I try very hard to entertain other menu options, I have a hard time not ordering them EVERY time. This Chef/Owner gets how to do high-end food in a blue-collar community and has trained his staff well. I'd put this place up against the best italian places in any major city.
Dined here with some friends not too long ago and I can honestly say I won't be back. The waitstaff was impolite, the bartender was slow, and the food was very marginal for the price. The wine selection was lacking anything of substance, too. My pasta was undercooked and my friend's chicken was overcooked. Not only that, it took a long time for our food without much attention to our table's drinks. Would rather go to other local establishments.
I am always impressed when the servers/kitchen respond well to an unexpectedly busy night. I walked in along with a few other couples to find only the server and bartender, but they stepped up and kept things flowing really well. My water glass was never empty, even though the single diner who isn't having alcohol is often easiest to overlook! And my food came out almost too hot to eat. To me, that's a sign of a good (and safe) kitchen. Really enjoyed the spinach salad, pork medallions, and I took a slice of cheesecake to go!

Stagecoach Inn

11946 N State Rd 26
Fort Atkinson, 53538
Reviews:
To truly experience the quintessential Wisconsin Supper Club, you have to travel off the beaten path. The Stagecoach Inn is one of the best in Southeastern Wisconsin for a number of reasons: 1. Is is a destination, that is popular with diners who travel near and far. On a Saturday night it's standing room only...and worth the wait. 2. The staff are hospitable and owner Sean Shinkay makes sure you feel welcome. The interior is reminiscent of a log cabin with cozy tables and lighting. The bar is beautiful and a focal point. 3. The food. Dinners are classic here and there's plenty of food. The relish trays of a bygone era have been revived here, featuring 4 kinds of salad brought to each individual table. Meals come with courses of soup, bread, salad and finally the entree. It's all delicious. 4. The food - the main course. It's prime rib, steak and shrimp, scallops, pork tenderloin, fried chicken and fish. Perfectly prepared and presented. Delectable. 5. Service. On point. Staff are quietly and efficiently bringing food and removing plates unobtrusively, allowing you to focus on enjoying the experience. 6. Did I mention the after dinner ice cream drinks are hand blended? Yum. I've had dinner a number of times at the Stagecoach over the years, for family events, with girlfriends, or to just gather together and catch up. No matter what the reason, a meal at The Stagecoach Inn is special and something to celebrate.
Old school supper club that screams Wisconsin! Yep, they have the relish tray but sadly no salad bar shoved up against a wall. Luckily, the iceberg lettuce they serve as the salad makes up for lack of a salad bar. Speaking of walls, this place is dark and woody, just like a really supper club should be. The food you ask? Hell ya! Where in Chicago will you find prime rib or filets of this quality for the screaming deal you find here? You won't. Trust me on this one. Their Au gratin potatoes are cheesy good. Can't vouch for the wine because when you are in WI you must go with an Old Fashion or Manhattan cocktail. The servers are outgoing, knowledgable and efficent. I love places like this. I hope Stagecoach Inn never changes!
This was a really hard one to rate, Yelpers. There is so much that I love, love, love about it, but also so much that just didn't do it for my personal taste. In the end, I had to rate for me, but hope that you consider all the reasons you might love it. So, for me: I don't like seafood. Any seafood. I tried a crab cake once that was okay, but that's where my tolerance bottoms out. I like steak, but I like it well done. I stopped ordering steaks while out long ago when I noticed that most waitstaff seemed to take personal offense to my request. Being an old-school Wisconsin supper club, these two limits knocked out 95% of the menu for me. I got the fried chicken. It was good! It had the crispiest coating I've ever encountered (my guess is that it is actually broasted), which was great but also made eating it a bit tough as I wasn't going to use my hands and only had a butter knife to try to dig into it with. The problem was compounded by there being very little meat on the bone, but the upside is that it pointed to the chicken being local and farm-raised as opposed to pumped up with hormones until it resembled Schwarzenegger-like proportions. I got the au gratin potatoes for side and they were pretty delicious, though nothing fancy. Instead of the traditional relish tray most supper clubs offer, the Stagecoach brings a choice of four salads whose origins must be from the 50s - there was a Pepto-pink creamy beat salad, peas and cheese in a mayo-based dressing, a three-bean salad, and spicy corn salad that was the winner of the group. That being said, none of them made me want to dig in past a bite or two. So - am I plotting my return trip? No. I still think you should give it a chance, though, if a traditional menu appeals to you. What did I like about the Stagecoach? First, if you blindfolded me, put me on a couple of planes, drove me around for awhile, and then took of my blindfold inside I'd have no doubts I was in Wisconsin. The supper club will always live on here, and I love that we keep its tradition alive. The staff are all friendly, and I loved that the bartender knew nearly every patron at the bar. In true supper club fashion, there was a wait for a table and we were encouraged to enjoy a drink or two while we waited. The bartenders addressed people by name, and often just had their drink ready to go without an order. The Stagecoach was packed, and the family I went with told me that there are several patrons who eat there literally every day. While the menu isn't for me, a lot of people seem to love it. If I lived nearby, I'd probably make it a pretty regular stop as a watering hole. Unrelated to the food or service, the restaurant gets bonus points for the sign out front being cute as a button. So, while it was a three-star night for me, the idea of the Stagecoach gets five.

Reviews:
My wife and I have eaten here many times since they reopened about a little over a year ago. I have to give the owners and staff credit. They did an amazing job renovating it since the days it was the old Canton restaurant. Food is great...sushi is done well, and not "fishy" tasting. They have plenty of great Chinese and Thai dishes, too. My only small criticism is that they should get rid of the hand written signs in their front windows...this is just a personal pet peeve of mine. Staff is friendly and food service is usually very quick. If you're looking for something different, Kit Cho is a great choice.
Excellent sushi and Asian food. Service a little slow, but we were in no hurry. Good Thai choices. Reasonable prices and enough to eat.
We came here for sushi but decided on Thai instead. Excellent choice. The pad Thai was some of the best I've had. The shrimp in the dish and the Thai spring rolls were perfectly prepared. They were succulent and had a nice crisp bite to them. The service was exceedingly slow. I would definitely eat here again.

Great restaurant in a historic building. Food and service was excellent! I had a grilled corned beef and swiss and a sample of mushroom barely soup. Will be back
Another fun, music filled evening....bowl of chili, couple of Mud Puppy Porters from Central Waters; Sarah had a Reuben...all tasty...followed by a wonderful Kat Eggelston / Kate ;MacLeod intimate (maybe 25 folks) folks concert....you forget about their hits until you hear the music again...
Love this place. Had the jambalaya, it was great. Best coffee. Even their water is better. Ate on their screened porch. Their building is lovely, next to the river.
