Wednesday Special was really quite a bargain. Fried chicken for 2 for $14.99! This included 8 pieces of chicken, salad bar, soup & 1 side each. Must say the chicken was nice & piping hot & tasty. Reason for the average rating is due to what appeared to be a lack of staff.Seemed there was only 1 server on duty... More

We haven't been to Syls in a few years. We decided to have dinner there recently. We ordered the Friday night fish special. It comes with baked beans and cole slaw. They don't bring you slaw or baked beans, you have to retrieve them from the salad bar area. The baked beans were in a warming pan. Baked beans were... More

We went to SYLS today and the last time we were there was 10 years ago. We drove 2 1/2 hours for fish and wow were we disappointed. We ordered all you care to eat fish and fries. The fish was not good, it was super greasy and the fries were full of salt. We complained to the waitress and... More

Fish at Syl's Place is the best. Love the batter fried. A good meal at a relatively reasonable price. Good servers. Prompt service overall.

We came to check out the seafood buffet that I recently heard about and there was a slight wait for a table, but perfect for us because we were able to have a drink at the bar. I was blown away with the refreshing flavor of the Fig Vodka Moscow Mule I tried. In fact There was a short list... More

Was out with friends tonight. Decided to stop at Syl's Place. We sat down, wondered where the menu was - here it was our laminated placemat. We ordered and received our beverage. After deliberating over the menu, we ordered. The server asked if we would like to add the soup & salad bar. I was under the impression it was... More

My fiancé and I are always looking for different places to go in the LaCrosse area. He had been to Syl's many years ago so we thought we'd check it out. There weren't many people there for a Saturday so I wasn't sure if that was a good sign. I had a 6 oz sirloin and my fiancé had the... More

Was up for a quick dinner, some place close and easy to get to, and not a chain. So we selected Syl's. I had a good old fashion from the bar. The menu had a nice variety of entrees and sandwiches to select from. Nice simple salad bar with garlic toast and 2 kinds of soup. The service was ok,... More
