8-Twelve MVP Bar and Grill American Wood Fire Cuisine
My family and I had a wonderfulMy family and I had a wonderful time celebrating Father's Day at 8-Twelve! The chef and our waitress were exceptionally accommodating towards our vegan diners. We will definitely be back in the future!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSteaks were great. Place wasSteaks were great. Place was buzzing on a stormy Wednesday night.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat First Impression!This was my first time dining here and it was spectacular. Our server was thoroughly versed in the menu and all the components of the offerings. The food was excellent! A truly wonderful experience all around.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time, lookingWe had a great time, looking forward to returning to 8-twelve very soon6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce againHave been here 3 times now. Love bringing friends from out of town here, have had groups of 6-7 people here last couple times and all have had great meals, great service and want to come back again!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceHadn't been here before but we had a great time. Atmosphere is casual but the menu is more fancy so it's a bit confusing as to what type of restaurant it's really trying to be. Anyway, the food was great and so was the service. It got a bit loud as the room filled up but wasn't too bad overall The S'More dessert was fabulous!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place!The food and service that we received at 8-Twelve MVP was wonderful. It was kid friendly so that our almost 6 month old daughter could have a great time too!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good, but have hadFood was good, but have had better steak at other fine restaurants. The scallops were fabulous/6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOut of orderWe had a great food experience here on Friday night. Our reservation was handled rifght on time. The wait staff was enthusiastic, but when asked a question, not quite on their game. Of the two beers on tap, they did not know details of either. The kitchen delivered our entree before we received our salads. They offered to correct their mistake by remaking our entrees and bringing our salads out, so we could eat in the intended order. That seemed wasteful, so we simply ate our entree, then salad. We were given a complimentary desserts use to their error. Nice touch. Food was quite good and I would come back!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service and foodHad a great experience. Limited menu but excellent service and food.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLocally sourced produce and meats!We had a wonderful meal! The stuffed pepper was delicious and so unique! My husband said his porkchop was the best chop he has ever had out at a restaurant!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLived up to the hypeCan't say enough about this place. I ordered NY Strip, broccoli, truffle smashed potatoes. All outstanding. Wife ordered pastrimi spiced pork chop, also excellent. Also ordered tots as an app- very good. Server Jessica did a great job explaining farm-to-table, went out of her way to make recommendations and provided very attentive service. $75 for this in my book was a bargain, would have paid $100+ for this in other locales. One less star for service for cold bartender, and the bus boy took away our bread and salt/pepper shakers after our appetizer and never brought back. Excellent waitress made up for that. Will most certainly be back5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMYummmmmmI can not wait to go back. The food was really good. I had a chicken BLT on a ciabatta bun and beer cheese soup. The food is a little pricey but totally worth it. Everything was made fresh right there in the kitchen, you could see the knife marks in the homemade potato chips. They were perfectly seasoned too. They give you a basket of bread with this really good spiced butter before you order. The chicken on the sandwich was really moist and seasoned well. Just writing about it is making me want to go there again!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!!The ribeye, squash, and brussel sprouts were a hit! I would order the exact same thing when I go back.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNot quite what we expectedI should of had either the $38 steak, or went with the Burger,......had the fish special which was really a good Friday night fish fry you can get in any WI tavern, except it was twice the price. The wine list looked fantastic, but didn't partake.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience!We really enjoyed the overall experience! Great food and service!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat foodFood and service was great. Only complaint was the appetiizers were way to small. Otherwise a very nice place for dinner!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining!Had a wonderful experience tonight. Service and food were both excellent!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMamazingHave and will continue to highly recommend! Thanks to Meagan and Hugo....well done!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasionBrought my family here for dinner after Christmas and my father announced shortly afterwards that he wanted to come back to celebrate his birthday. My parents live near LaCrosse so he was willing to drive 3 hrs and stay overnight for his dinner! Once again, the food and the service were fantastic! We had tickets to the Brewer game and the staff made sure we got done in time to make it to the game.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful place to doneHave only dined there twice but the food and service are wonderful. We are not locals but this a favorite whenever we are in the area5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, service a little lightThe food here is great, love the farm to table concept! Although the service this time was a little lacking, our server was good, but a little on the slow side at the start, and considering there were alot of emploeyes stnading aroind doing nothing, was a little disappointing to see.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA Perfect Sunday LunchIn our group of 7 we had two "VIPs". Had a rather late reservation (1:30 on a Sunday) but never felt rushed to order or finish our meal or leave. Appreciated the variety of menu choices (good for a group with diverse tastes to choose from). Excited to hear that a second location is opening.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience!For a restaurant unused to serving brunch, they did a great job of accommodating a large mob of Mother's Day guests! The food was great, especially the buttermilk chicken. We will return to sample other interesting menu options.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSalmon Benedict and Salmon SandwichThe waiter was knowledgeable, efficient, and personable. The food concept (farm to table) is both admirable and healthy. My wife was pleased with the Salmon Benedict. I ordered the Salmon Sandwich. I was thinking this would be an inch thick slab of salmon on a nice bun. Maybe I didn't read the menu closely: it was a thin slice of salmon on cream cheese on toast. The side salad was extremely fresh and had an excellent dressing. I'll have a hamburger or a steak next time I'm there. Plus, the Brewers game was on and Number 8 had an O for.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic foodWonderful food that all of us enjoyed. Server was great. Only complaint would be slow service.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded ExpectationsI decided to treat my family to a Mother's Day brunch. I liked the diverse options for the 8 Twelve specialty menu, and decided to make my reservation. Upon arrival, we stopped by the bar for one of their drink specials, which were unique and quite tasty. Upon being seated, we decided to try something different and selected the Cheddar and Gouda tator tots. They were a nice start to the meal. Our server recommended the 8 oz filet which half the table chose to try. They could not stop raving about the taste and how well it went with the sides they were able to select. I ordered the Buttermilk Fried Amish Chicken. The breading was light and tasty and the tomato macaroni and cheese was a delicacy that I haven't tasted before. A++5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and good serviceThe menu here has some unique ingredients on items such as chicken, salmon, and beef. If you like trying different sauces, seasongs, cheese flavorings, etc., this restaurant is good for you. If you enjoy more "traditional" food, the menu may be restrictive for you although my husband enjoyed his caesar salad with chicken. The tater tot appetizer is very tasty. I had the duck breast and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Brawny Burger is excellent and also the mac and cheese.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious entrees!Our group of six enjoyed a great evening at 8 -twelve. All of us raved about our meals. The scallops were the best I've ever had. They melted in my mouth. Leo, our server, was very engaging and thoroughly explained the menu. Nice to know 8-twelve uses local growers. One in our group couldn't decide what to order among three choices and asked for his recommendation. Rather than tell her, he surprised her with his choice. She loved his choice: the pork chops. The shrimp pasta, prime rib (a Saturday special) and NY sirloin were also outstanding. We all said we'd definitely come back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMawesomeIt was so nice that you had the "HAPPY BIRTHDAY KEVIN" on all the menus. I posted that menu on facebook and everyone that seen it thought it was the greatest thing. Thought when we got there it was just going to be the same waitstaff coming and singing but this was more memorable. We actually framed the menu and put it on the wall in Kevin's mancave.
Thank you so much for the great dining experience.
Kevin and Linda5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood timeEveryone enjoyed the food , from our 2 yr old granddaughter on up. For meat lovers, a more tender tasty choice cannot be found. The special attention given us by the staff was greatly appreciated.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Trip to 8-TwelveFood was simply outstanding; great value, wonderful service. Although the attraction is related to the name and affiliation with Ryan Braun and Aaron Rodgers, the reality is that this restaurant stands on it's own. Unique preparations, local sourced cuisine and selections together with attention to the health conscious diner made this restaurant stand out, especially considering how recently it opened.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe recently enjoyed a SundayWe recently enjoyed a Sunday lunch with friends. The service was good, food excellent and environment very nice. We'll return soon.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSport celeb rest. with great food!Wow! A restaurant owned by sports celebrities that actually has great food! They obviously focused more on the food than on sports memorabilia on the walls. Very refreshing.
It's a fun place that you shouldn't miss....... REALLY!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMbirthday celebrationGreat, got a booth in a corner, were quick with the reservation and listened to my request for 'Happy Birthday Andrew!' Somewhere. Put it on the menu! Real cool! Good food as usual and nice, friendly staff. Enjoy going there. :)5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding all the way aroundHad a group of 8 their for a business dinner, all of us travel a lot and eat in many different types of restaurants so most restaurants seem pretty much the same. However the group to a person all said the various entrees were exceptionally good to the best they have had of that particular selection. Steaks, Duck, Ocean Trout all tops. Service was attentive and prompt and prices moderate for the quality. Definitely a return trip in order.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic ExperienceOur server was fantastic. Selection of locally sourced food and drink was impressive. Food was delicious. My only critique is that it took more time between courses than I was expecting.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a girls night out andHad a girls night out and everyone enjoyed themselves. We ordered many different meals from the menu and each was delicious. Had a waiter who explained the menu and was there with what ever we needed. Would recommend this to anyone who likes #8 and #12, and would like seeing the pictures.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful experienceWe had a wonderful experience with wonderful food!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThank You for honoring ourThank You for honoring our request to help celebrate 2 birthdays!!! The creme brulee was delicious!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOur visit to the 8-TwelveOur visit to the 8-Twelve was a great dining experience. The atmosphere was pleasant although the noise level got quite loud as the restaurant filled to near capacity. The menu selection was good and the food was well prepared and appealing. Leo, our waiter did a superb job of explaining our options and highlighting the advantages of the 8-Twelve philosophy. Overall a great experience that I would definitely take advantage of in the future.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time toThis was our first time to the restaurant and we had a group of 6 for dinner for a birthday party. Our server, Alex, was OUTSTANDING! He had an extensive knowledge of the food and wine and made all of the options sound irresistible. He was attentive to our table and we had to chase him down to ask for anything. The food was AMAZING! From the appetizers to entrees to dessert, hands down an incredible experience. We will not hesitate to return for another visit. Thank you for making my birthday a memorable one!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI noted in my reservationI noted in my reservation that we were celebrating my father's birthday. They surprised us with a special menu that had "Happy Birthday Jerry!" on the bottom of the page. THey also did a special dessert for him.
Server was great at explaining that they try to use local suppliers as much as possible and knew quite a bit about several of them.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMService & Food Worth Returning ForHad made a special request for seating, and they made sure to honor my request. We were with people from out of state, and when one of the people in our party ordered a drink that the waitress wasn't sure of, she found a manager. The manager came over to make sure the ingredients were correct, then came back to shake it and serve it at the table. That was really a nice touch. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgable. The food was great. Steaks done perfectly, and the special fish dish was very good too. We will be sure to go back. Great overall experience!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the 18oz prime rib andI had the 18oz prime rib and my girlfriend had the 12oz and it was made to perfection. Worth every penny in my book. Well done chef and serving staff4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe team at 8-Twelve wereThe team at 8-Twelve were a hit this past week. We had a large business group, and everyone truly enjoyed their meal. The waitress really knew her stuff and made quite a few recommendations that some in the group went with. Appetizers were quick to come out, and our meal soon followed with jsut enough time in between. Will definitely continue to come back to this impressionable place!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBucket listLove the local sourcing for produce, meats, and poultry. Nice scene and super friendly waitstaff puts this on anyone's restaurant bucket list.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was so delicious we allFood was so delicious we all had dessert, which we never do. We loved it!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBring your calculator!We initially chose the restaurant because of the sports connection. Our waiter gave a great intro, explaining the "farm to table" concept, and we really appreciated that. The food was wonderful, but expensive, especially given the location in a strip mall and the sports bar concept that we thought we were going in to. The bar is "sporty," the restaurant is more on the upscale side, especially when presented with the $150.00 bill at the end of the meal (4 entrees, 3 drinks, 1 dessert, 1 salad, 1 soup).4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Great serviceMy girlfriend and I went there for the first time for dinner and we were very impressed with the food and service. We both had the surf and turf and our steaks were cooked perfectly, exactly as we asked. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. Felt like 5 star dining/service without the 5 star prices. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
