Badger Crossing is a delightful find in a small town. We have a very diverse menu offering steaks from a local butcher, finger lickin' barbecued ribs, seafood, homemade soups, pizza cooked in a stone oven and many other surprising menu items!

Generally we love it at Badger Crossing, but with it being Valentine's Day, it was very busy and chaotic. (Which I completely understand). My steak tasted like it had been sitting in some spices in a roaster all day. I couldn't even eat it. The service was nothing special because the wait staff was extremely busy.

Reserving a table was extremely easy online. We brought friends visiting from Germany and they were very happy with our choice of restaurants. The food was very good and up to their standards and they were very impressed with our waitress. I can’t remember her name but she was very kind and patient with them and their broken English. We will tell others.

We love Badger Crossing! It is a staple restaurant we go to. We love it for date night or large family outings. Food is great and they have the best soup and salad bar.

Sunday night with a light crowd. Food around the table seemed good but my ribs were not to my liking. Heavily sauced and were over done and fell off the bone too easily.

Food, service, & cost are fine.
Staff claimed they did not receive our reservation.
They said we should call direct next time.

Don't use this app to make a reservation. I did last week and when we tried to check in they said that we weren't on the list. Apparently the guy who took care of it is no longer there. Luckily it wasn't super busy.

Badger Crossing is our 'go-to' restaurant and we've never been disappointed. That said, Friday and Saturday evenings are very busy and highly recommend you make a reservation.

Cashton is such a quaint town, my brother really enjoyed the visit! Fantastic servers at Badger Crossing. We ordered the fish, which was "eh" I should have gone with beef or pasta, both of which friends had recommended. We ate before the "bar" crowd, so it was very quiet and we had a seat near the yummy salad bar, which had herring! I love herring :)

Don't make a reservation online.
Why have that option on tour website if you aren't going to honor them? Ifnyu are having trouble with it, turn it off.

My parents are in their 90's. The staff has always taken the time to be sure that they have what they like and need at the moment. it often requires asking the right questions. I have to be gluten free. Often I can tell something I ate in other places was contaminated or not as billed. This hasn't happened at Badger Crossing.

Bartender was a little rude. Waitress was great, food was great, price was reasonable. Temperature in building was a tad frigid but I will definitely go back!

Since moving to the area, Badger Crossing has become our go-to location for a special night out and to take visiting family and friends.
I have tried a variety of items on their menu and never been disappointed. A full salad bar comes with each dinner (includes a choice of 2 soups) and I'm fully when I leave or have leftovers to enjoy again the next day.
The hostess station and the wait staff are very friendly and accommodating.
I try to make a reservation if I know we're going on a Friday or Saturday since the wait can be quite long, but because the food and service is so good, they are also busy during the week and a reservation could be helpful.
While you wait, there is a full bar where you can have something to drink, enjoy free popcorn and talk before being seated in the dining area.
I highly recommend Badger Crossing in Cashton, WI!

We have dined at Badger Crossing several times since moving to the area in September, even taking our company president and peers on one occasion.
Having been there that often, it means that not everything is always perfect but everything that's NOT perfect is taken care of with professionalism, concern and courtesy (keeping in mind that is how we try to behave as well).
Badger Crossing's menu has plenty to choose from, the soup and salad bar is never a disappointment and I look forward to trying everything offered as time goes on.

We were in the area for the Elroy-Sparta bike trial and tripadvisor.com advised this was a good place. It was!! We had the fish fry and our kids ate off the kids menu. Even the kids gave rave reviews (and they are picky.) I had the 3 piece Cod dinner and should have had 2 pieces. They were nice size pieces. Salad bar was tasty. Server was great! My daughter dropped her knife and from no where the server came over, said she heard the drop and asked what silverware needed to be replaced in a very kind manner. I have NEVER had that happen before. We got there around 5:15 and were able to be seated right away (due to reservations through opentable.com) however it got very busy by the time we left. Would highly recommend reservations (at least for Friday nights.) We will definitely go back when in the area again.

Overcooked pasta with a marinara sauce that tasted burnt. Any bottled, brand name sauce would have been far better. Mis-shapen meatballs completed the crude presentation. Stay away.

It was a busy day for lunch dining. Only one waitress was working. It took some time to get our drinks and food. We knew our waitress was doing her best to attend to each table. She kept up a pleasant and delightful attitude and apologized for the delay. When things slowed down she was able to spend time talking to us. We were in no hurry and enjoyed our dining experience.

We love the Fish Fry, and went with expectations of a great meal from other reviews written.. We found the eatery to be pleasant, the waitstaff fantastic, but not the fish fry. Way too greasy, and the salad bar run of the mill , there was nothing worth landing on my plate. 2 pieces $10.99, not the usual Fish Fry all you can eat, and not a potato pancake to be found on the offerings...Their Badger Fries were very good......but still would not recommend.

My grown son took me here for my first visit a few years ago. Now that I moved back to the area, I go visit when I can. The last time I was there (last weekend), I brought along 2 local sisters and their husbands as well as a sister and her husband from New Mexico. We ALL found it to be a VERY pleasurable experience. The food was GREAT, the service was AWESOME and the overall experience was FANTASTIC!! And we even ran into the son who took me for my first visit who just happened to be there that same night!! THAT says it all!! :)

The service was great but dinner was outstanding!!!!! Prime rib was the best I have had in years, combined with the onions and mushrooms it was heaven. I always order the larger cut of prime rib where ever we eat and have no problem finishing it. This was so thick I could not finish the dinner and took home a piece large enough for lunch the next day.
