Dining Culture

For a small town, Cambridge has a vibrant dining culture from talented chefs to supper clubs to diners.

Within a 10-minute drive from the inn are 2 amazing chefs:

Lewis Station Winery located in Lake Mills is home to Executive Chefs Jason and Beth Dunn. These chefs offer a bistro menu that is full of flavor of local organic farmers and sausage makers. Artisan pizzas have a fresh home-made crust that is flaky. Single orders are meant to be shared.
• The tiny galley kitchen of Mangiami Italiano in Fort Atkinson is the home of Executive Chef Eric Weber. Chef Eric starts his day early making fresh pasta for his ristorante. In the summer, Chef uses the vegetables from his garden to make vegetable zuppa packed with flavor.

The Fireside Dinner Theater is a family-owned and operated dinner theater experience. Off-Broadway actors hone their talent here while waiting for that next big break. For patrons craving a Wisconsin fish-fry and potato pancakes, no need to see the show, just make a reservation for dinner.

Supper Clubs are a Wisconsin institution that have been around for at least half a century. They are a place where people could linger all night. The hallmarks of a supper club are dark soothing interior with a view of a lake, river or forest; a restaurant that serves traditional American food and offers food, drink and entertainment; dinner is preceded by a relish tray of fresh cut veggies, pickled cherry peppers, pickled herring, crackers and bright orange cheese spread; a salad bar is available with triumvirate of homemade salad dressings brought to your table; and patrons enjoy a traditional old fashioned before dinner and an ice cream drink afterward. Remember to take home the left overs of your large meal in a doggie bag, another mainstay of the Wisconsin Supper Club. We have several supper clubs nearby:
• Buckhorn Supper Club, Milton
• Edgewater Supper Club, Jefferson
• Stage Coach, Fort Atkinson
• Highway Harry’s, Johnson Creek

Ken’s Keystone Grill & Pub and the Sports Page are two local sports bars within walking distance from the inn with friendly bartenders who will get to know you before you leave. The Keystone owner, Ken Kemler, is a native of Philadelphia and you guessed it, has a phenomenal Philly Cheesesteak and Cajun French fries. The fries are seasoned with Ken’s own special blend of herbs and spices. Ken’s pride and joy is the Keystone smokehouse. Ribs are on the menu every night.
