We love coming to this restaurant because it reminds us of an old supper club we use to go to. The food is delicious...especially their beef lentil soup! YUM!

I had the most wonderful and juicy Lamb burger. It was fixed to perfection. My husband had a Cajun prime rib dinner and had to take some home. Waitress was very friendly and we were seated in a room with only one other couple. It made for a nice quiet evening.

Met the family for St. Patricks day dinner. The meal tasted like it had been reheated and the vegetables were mush. Even my brother in laws hamburger was bad. Service was a little slow, and we haven't been back.

The best restaurant in Waupaca, WI to go for a fantastic meal. They have been around for years and that is the place to go for steak, seafood, and all sorts of fish. You will not leave hungry and I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!! Full bar, fireside dining, outdoor seating, and yummy desserts.

Have been going to Simpsons for special occasions for years. Always a little wait, but always worth it. We have never been disappointed with the food. The warm rolls with roasted garlic and the veggies and dip are just the beginning of the outstanding meal. Steak, ribs, seafood, all excellent. A variety of nightly specials. We prefer sitting in the... More

Food was very good but the wait was horrible. We were told that the large parties there never made reservations and esentually short staffed. We were comped for desert but aside from that it was enjoyable.

Back in the 70's and 80's this was THE place to go for a perfectly grilled steak. Imagine our delight to get an unbelievable platter of perfectly grilled tuna presented so beautifully with enough left over to have another meal, a rack of lamb seasoned to perfection, and pecan crusted whitefish - a staple on their menu. The service was... More
