We come up here every year for one or two Packer game weekends and it has become one of our all time favorites. We travel a lot and go out to eat a lot and The Torch Lite is one of the best…even against some of the bigger city restaurants. This year, my wife and I were celebrating our birthdays and Judy (our awesome waitress) brought us complimentary glasses of champagne. We love the salad bar! It has a wide selection of supper club favorites. We ordered the Ribeye and it was cooked to perfection (the perfect medium rare). We also got a chance to meet the new owners (Jody and Cindy) and loved their passion and commitment to excellence. We will come back again, and again, and again…A five plus star rating for sure!

You need to do better with your side veggies. It’s always the same frozen veggie mix with NO seasoning. It’s really a turn off. I would expect that from a diner but NOT a fine dining restaurant. First, you should do better than the same plain boring frozen veggies which I even see in the pictures on this page. Fresh would be fantastic, but If you’re going to serve frozen veggies at least doctor them up with some fresh herbs and butter and try some variety.

I love this place. Very old school with a zoo in the back. Old fashioned salad bar. Primerib was super rare as I requested. Only failure both times I have been there are the martinis. Had the oddly spelt es car go, it was odd!

The Torch Lite definitely provides the quintessential Wisconsin Supper Club experience. Friday night fish fry with a brandy old fashioned, of course! We had the AYCE cod which comes with choice of potato, mini cole slaw, a mini loaf of warm bread served table side, and a trip to the salad bar. And, a lovely salad bar it is, featuring supper club crackers and bread sticks with cheese spread, liver pate spread, garlic toast, pickled beats, and the usual salad fixings. They filled the plate with cod and fries, so after the salad bar most people will be challenged to finish the main entre of fish. I'm not most people, (kind of a beast, if you must know), so I ordered more cod. They delivered seven more pieces, but they are about one third the size of a traditional cod fillet. I, however, enjoyed that aspect, because the smaller pieces are more readily hand held. They don't fall apart while you dip them in the delicious tartar sauce, for example. The new owners run the place well because the service went very smoothly. It's more of modern building with high ceilings giving it an open and airy feel. Apparently, the previous owners had a small menagerie of exotic animals out back. We saw a lone camel during our visit. I wouldn't get too close though... I hear those things can really hump.

Stopped by on recommendation from former employee here. Had the Cod with twice baked potato and some cheese curds. Definitely worth every dollar and the service was Top-Notch!!! We will for sure be coming back again!
