This Waterfront Wisconsin Restaurant Takes Outdoor Dining To A Whole New Level
No one enjoys outdoor dining like we Wisconsinites do. With our scant few weeks of nice weather, we take advantage as often and as much as possible, so we love any excuse to enjoy the fresh air. Waterfront dining isn’t a novelty in Wisconsin, but finding the best decks in the best locations can become something of a point of pride. If you haven’t checked out Huck Finn’s on the Water in LaCrosse, you’re missing what just might be the best waterfront location in all of Wisconsin.
Lots of places can say they are water-front or have water views, but few places have the access to the water that Huck Finn's in LaCrosse can claim. Located at North Bay Marina in Pool 8 of the Mississippi River, they are literally steps from the water. Because they're on the pool and not directly on the river, it's quiet and quaint, with all the bonus of a waterfront location with none of the hassle.
You'll find calm waters, gorgeous views, a heck of a sunset watching spot and an amazing deck right on top of the water. It's a stellar spot that locals call the best outdoor dining in town. Tucked out on the West La Crosse peninsula, it's across from the Veterans Freedom Park in the middle and Copeland Park back on the mainland. This great location keeps it chill and relaxing and makes it truly perfect waterfront dining.
The large patio is great for a meal, but it's also home to a tone of live music and it's a family-friendly spot, making it a truly magical location. Everyone will be happy out here, soaking in the summer and relaxing with great food, drinks, and live music.
These folks know how to enjoy the warm weather and serve up a great menu of fresh fish and even fresher drinks that allow you to let your cares float on down the river while you kick back and unwind. You'll feel like you're in a far more tropical place than LaCrosse.
Even if it gets a bit chilly at night, they've got you covered. Heat lamps make this a great place for far longer than just July and August. Bring a coat and prepare to enjoy a great night under the stars. The music will keep playing and the drinks will keep being poured.
The patio is the draw, but the food and drinks will keep you coming back. From stellar burgers and sandwiches to amazing seafood, Huck Finn's is serving up delicious plates you'll have a hard time choosing from. Daily specials include things like catfish cheeks, a seafood burrito and stuffed mushrooms. You'll leave here stuffed to the gills, relaxed and content.
This is truly a spectacular patio, with the water and marina right behind you. You'll love the feeling of being outside and soaking up the fresh air. It's the perfect place to spend some time that's not rowdy or crazy or full of parties. Instead, it's the perfect relaxing spot that takes advantage of its location and offers a ton of fun while serving up stellar food and drinks. By land or by sea, it doesn't matter how you get there - just get there.
