One of the things Bev likes to do when we travel is eat out and leave the cooking and clean up to others so she ask about potential places at the Neshonoc Lakeside Camp Resort office. With a population of 4900 in West Salem, WI, the list of options wasn’t long and after some concerns about eating breakfast at a sports bar, we headed down to Features Sports Bar and Grill.
As it turned out there was a decent sized restaurant with outdoor patio on one end, a large sports bar in the center, and a bowling alley on the other end – only in the North J.
Bev – Mexican Omelet - Seasoned beef, black olives, and onions all smothered with salsa and cheese. Served with sour cream, toast, and hash browns. $7.99
Pat – Hunters Platter - Baby red potatoes lightly fried, topped with scrambled eggs, fried onions, and peppers served with bacon or sausage and toast. $5.99
Me – Farmers Platter - Grilled Klement's Italian sausage and hash browns, topped with fried onions, and peppers with two eggs and a side of sausage, served with toast. $5.99
All meals were very good and after talking with the staff and looking at the evening menu, we decided to come back for supper and try the burgers and fried cheese curds they are noted for.
We started the meal with an appetizer of Homemade Cheese Curds - 12 ounces of hand dipped fresh Westby cheese curds served with a side of marinara sauce. $8.99.
For our entrees we all had a Steakhouse Burger - Steakhouse Burgers - All steakhouse burgers are served on a grilled ciabatta bun with lettuce and tomato. Served with our famous loaded potato skins, smothered in monterey jack or nacho cheese sauce, spicy waffle fries or french fries.
Pat – Curd Burger - Our 8 oz. steakhouse burger is crowned with a slice of American cheese and a mound of deep fried Wisconsin cheese curds. $8.99
Bev – Monster Mac and Cheese Burger - An 8 oz. burger on Jalapeno cheddar bread with grilled homemade Mac & Cheese, bacon and jalapenos. $9.49
Larry – From its description and the obvious photo op, I ordered the Frat Burger - This is the talk of the town! A juicy 8 oz. steakhouse burger, pressed between two grilled cheese sandwiches with fried onions and mushrooms. $9.49
As you can see, the meals were huge and none of us ate more than half of theirs. While the burgers were all good and definitely unique, I would not say they were blow-me-away special from a taste standpoint, and definitely not as good as our breakfast meals. However, I would eat both meals there again if in the area.
There was nothing shown for Madison and she chose not to join us and we took something back to her.
Between meals, Bev snuck in a little afternoon nap.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
