Wisconsin’s Oldest Tavern Has Ruebens That Are The Best In The State

In a small town along the Mississippi River, you’ll find a very old tavern serving up a very delicious sandwich. Monarch Public House is Wisconsin’s oldest continuously-operating tavern and it serves up a wonderful version of a classic American sandwich – the Rueben. The Rueben deliciously melds corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing between grilled slices of rye bread. The Monarch Public House offers much more than this delicious sandwich; it’s also a good excuse to make the drive to Fountain City. Here’s why you won’t be disappointed at the Monarch:

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Allow plenty of time to soak in the atmosphere of the Monarch – the place has tin ceilings, wood floors and lots of rich woodwork. It’s the perfect place to order a second pint! Once you’ve enjoyed the best Rueben in the state’s oldest tavern, you might consider heading south to Monroe, home of the state’s oldest cheese store.
