Our family has been going to the Hungry Peddler when we visit LaCrosse. Had dinner with my mother-in-law and daughter. Filets for all. My mother-in-law added a 4 oz lobster tail and I added four bacon wrapped shrimp. The French onion soup and salad prior to the meal were fresh and delicious. We were too full for dessert at the...

Went in for lunch. The restaurant was busy, but service was fast. The sandwiches we had were good, but nothing special. Probably won't ever go there again since there are better options in the LaCrosse area.

Our party of 4 discovered this Gem last year on a visit to the area. With all the places in town for dinner, we couldn't wait to return! As luck would have it, Karen was again our server, and she outdid herself! With a full bar, we already had our libations prior to being seated(wait on a Saturday evening was... More

Hungry Peddler is one of my must go to places when visiting La Crosse every year. I have been going to Hungry Peddler for well over 30 years. The breakfast is always good and their Friday Fish Fry is great. The prices are reasonable and the service is always first rate.

Good value with plenty of food. The hash browns were the best we've ever had. Homemade cinnamon bread french toast was also good not overly sweet. Nice menu selection sure to find something you will like. The menu offers a lighter side menu with smaller portions for less money. A large amount of menu items came in a lighter side... More

We've been going to Hungry Peddler for probably around 40 years and, until today, have always been satisfied with everything about the meal.Today was very lousy! For starters we've always enjoyed the garlic toast they served but today it looked like it had been sitting around in the kitchen for weeks and it had virtually no flavor. We needed to... More

With a decor and menu of the supper club of days gone by, the Hungry Peddler is a great place to share the experience of this dining history. From the appetizers to desserts, the food and drinks are well prepared and delicious. Bottom line: Bring your friends and reminisce about "the good old days."

This place loved by locals. I was there about 3 times and didn't dig it that much. Not impressed with food. It's kind of a small place and it's very dark inside to my taste.... I would skip it.

Had a delicious breakfast here, pancakes were very tasty as were the hash browns. Coffee, GREAT, not too weak nor strong. The stars of American Pickers have been here probably when they are trying to purchase the antiques on the wall. They almost always come here when they are in town.
