Food was outstanding. Drinks were made from scratch. Our service was outstanding and waitress was phenomenal. We're from out of town but love to spend time n LAX. loved the Supper Club feel and decor brought it home. We went on our anniversary weekend wanted something special. Food and service was both. Now, the table we got was right next... More

Had duck wings that were deep-fried and fair at best. I also had the spinach salad that was ok the chicken added to it was very good. The atmosphere would be best for dinner and I suppose I should've guessed that Based on some of the reviews. There were burgers and Patty melts on the menu maybe those would've been... More

A great place for steak and prime rim when you find yourself in La Crosse. Great service a great history and wonderful food. Make reservations as sometimes the wait can be a bit long. The prime rib never disappoints!

We frequent Digger's often for work lunches. The spinach salad is enough for two people and delicious! The other fav is the prime rib sandwich. Unique supper club atmosphere. I did not give 5 stars only because of price, otherwise it's worth the trip every time!

The food is always high quality. They know how to cook a steak rare, a vanishing talent these days. The staff are always friendly. I would recommend this standard to anyone.

Great feel to this cool place reminiscent of the finest Wisconsin supper clubs. The room is divided by a wall down the middle with two large bars on each side of the restaurant. Decor form 50-60's era with pictures of classic movie stars. Food is very good, and so is the service. Great drinks that are priced great! Their bread... More

While there are a number of factors that contribute to a great restaurant experience, my own bottom-line evaluation comes down to the answer to a simple question----is this a place I would love to return to? In the case of Digger's Sting, the answer is an emphatic YES. Not only would we love to return, we wish this place was... More

My wife and I had been here before and had a great experience. This time not so much. Let me start off by saying this place is like taking a step back into a 70's supper club. It has a retro feel to it so if you are looking for a more modern feel, this is not it. But if... More
