15 Restaurants In Wisconsin That Are Hard To Get In But Totally Worth It

We get it. Sometimes, when you want to eat, you want your meal immediately – no waitlists, no reservations, no hassle.

But that lack of foresight would make you miss out on some of the best food Wisconsin has to offer. From no-frills diners to James Beard nominees, and everything in between, here are some of the most popular restaurants across the state that are worth the work it takes to get a seat. Whether it’s because of popularity, seating capacity, or both, there are just some restaurants that require you to queue up, plan ahead, or find a miracle to get a seat.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
