    Staff was pleasant, welcoming and our waiter delightful. Food was delicious. Prices are comparable to most better restaurants. However, the management certainly isn’t putting any effort into making you feel like you are entering a fine establishment! Entrance is shabby. Ambiance is tired and worn. Sat in northeast corner, which was chilly. Impression upon entering is quite depressing—worn and beaten back porch, messy side room—one certainly does not get a great impression from the moment they step inside.

    Very good food! with one exception- my friend ordered a burger medium rare and it was WELL- done. Ruined the burger. But the other 2 meals were delicious, especially the Club sandwich. Very nice ambiance but could use a little TLC, especially the bathroom. Hostess was amazing. So welcoming and kind and had lots of good information. Service was a little slow but it was rather busy.

    First time here. We came for brunch will be back for a fishfry and their patio. The German pancake was amazing. There brunch is $24, you get a glass of champagne, coffee, juice, pastry plate, and choice of entree.

    This was our first time at Pandls. We ate in the bar room. It was very cozy and welcoming. Jack was a super bartender by the way. The whitefish was delicious especially. The only complaint we had was that the salad had a bit too much dressing on it. The service was outstanding and we would definitely come back again!

    Very disappointing meal. My husband and I both had the pork schnitzel and it was over cooked and dry. We were so looking forward to celebrating our anniversary there. We no longer live in Wisconsin and we’re back visiting friends and family. So excited to go back to Pandl’s and then so disappointed.

    We moved to WI 8 years ago, and this was the first time we'd gone to JP's. We'd driven by it a million times but finally had dinner there. I loved the ambiance immediately and love discovering local restaurants in the area. The service was great, and the food was delicious. I had prime rib, and my husband had the scallops. We will definitely be returning.

    Whitefish came in two pieces; one fishy and dried out and 2nd one good. Schnitzel was grizzly and tough, not freshly prepared, succulent and satisfying. Red cabbage and spaetzel warm, not hot.

    All was very good, but I was diappointed in the WeinerSchnitzle because the breading was thicker than I have had elsewhere. Also the fried spaetzle was on the tough side. Better if not fried.

    We enjoyed our meal on the lovely patio. The chicken livers were outstanding. The wiener schnitzel was tasty, especially the cabbage. Service was good but it was a busy lunch time and we were patient. Be sure to make a reservation if you want to sit on the patio.

    Five diners - five different entrees - all delicious and memorable. Authentic German weiner schnitzel or lamb shank or lighter fare like white fish or shrimp scamp all were hits. Also lovely salads, sides and an entree or two for vegetarians. Welcoming hostess who offered a bit of history for this 107 year young treasure. Mark our waiter was professional and very personable. Dessert menu is impressive. Highly recommend. (Only negative mentioned was lack of privacy between dining room and mens room and a few flies buzzing around our inside table)
