The location makes sense. My concern would be with the number of pedestrians that will need to cross Farwell Street to get to and from the new transfer station.

I agree with larryms. The at-grade crossing at Dewey can be tricky these days with so much traffic, which is most certainly going to increase. An underpass at the Dewey St. bridge at the Eau Claire river would be nice (similar to the Farwell Street underpass). It would also be nice to reroute the trail along the north bank of the Eau Claire river to maximize the river view for everyone, not just condo owners.

Service was prompt and friendly. Great burgers and homemade chips and dips! I had the jalapeno burger and it was excellent. Also had an order of cheese curds. Very good! Great sports bar atmosphere. I'm especially looking forward to coming here on Badger game days!

Awesome laid-back, retro place! I sat at the small diner counter on a swivel seat and enjoyed a fantastic Sunday breakfast with my wife and some friends. Our server was super-friendly with some old-school diner sass! Loved the service! My biscuits and gravy were excellent. Huge home-made platter of it! Also had a $3 Bloody Mary to wash it down. Menu is simple, but that's how it should be here! Good old-fashioned food with a smile! I now want to be a regular at the Maple Lounge and Cafe!

Been here a couple of times since they've reopened in this location. The food is just as good as it was before. The atmosphere is much nicer at the new location and the staff are always friendly and helpful. The sushi/sashimi /nigiri is very good. Some of the best in Eau Claire. It's great to have them back in Eau Claire and in such a vibrant area downtown.

I love this place! Great food. Fantastic nostalgic atmosphere. Spotless (even under the classic cars!) The chicken tenders are literally whole chicken breasts and you get a ton of them! Excellent burgers and sandwiches and this is the ONLY place that does fries right! I'm on my way to becoming a regular!

Reviewed: Taco John’s - Brackett Ave

I went to the Brackett Ave Taco John's yesterday (Cinco de Mayo) because i was craving some Mexican. Actually, I was craving the Potato Ole's which I'm sure are as far from authentic Mexican as you can get! Anyway, after a long wait in the drive thru, my order came out. Potato Ole's (of course) and 3 shrimp street tacos. I'm a sucker for trying the new menu items at Taco John's. The Ole's were amazing as usual, but the shrimp street tacos were weird tasting. I think it was the taco slaw.

I love this place! Their burgers, steaks, brats, sausages, snack sticks and kabobs are excellent. Try the some of their homemade bacons, including their cranberry chipotle bacon! They also have homemade beef jerky, spicy and original. Fantastic! Check out their wide selection of other delicious and unique cheeses, curds, beers, wines and cupcakes!

I for one am very excited that The Classic Garage is coming, especially since it's only 2 blocks from my house! I will be dining there frequently. If the food is great, the atmosphere is cool and the service is excellent, I don't see why it would ever fail. Consistency is the key to survival. I have faith that it will become a local institution and a destination for others from all over.

I also live nearby and am excited to see what it becomes. I just hope the meth heads stay away from it. Maybe someone will also take on the challenge of converting the old Circle C station on the corner of Vine and 3rd. That place could also use a major facelift and purpose.

It's all crap...including the FREE cold oil-slicked chips and salsa for "Stripes" members! Never going here again. I'll make my own Jack Daniel's sauce at home.

Went here with my wife recently for a weekday breakfast/brunch. It was excellent. I ordered the southwest breakfast wrap, my wife chose the breakfast sandwich. Both were great! Fresh ingredients including avacado in my wrap and superb breads including the breakfast roll. Also enjoyed a butterscotch scone and a sticky bun! The coffees we ordered were also very good. They have a plethora of amazing baked goodies. It was difficult to chose only a couple. I wanted to order one of everything. You will too.
