AND THE WINNER IS ... Lucette Brewing Co. and Woodfire Eatery in Menomonie.

Best Restaurant in Menomonie

A whole slew of restaurants in the Menomonie area make flavor their middle name. Lucette Brewing Co. and Woodfire Eatery (910 Hudson Road) not only brews beer but also serves up some of the best eats in the Menomonie area. Try their Sweet Honey Love pizza, and fall in love with this restaurant on your own. Jake’s Supper Club (E5690 County Hwy. D) is known for can’t-miss specials. Try the sandwiches, steaks, and prime rib to get the full Menomonie experience. Log Jam Bar & Eatery (709 Broadway St. S.) takes third place for its laid-back vibe with casually delicious food, brews, and entertaining sports broadcasts in the back. An honorable mention goes to Ted’s Pizza Palace (306 Main St. E.), whose hand-crafted pizza pies and love for great food earned them a close fourth place.

A-maze-ing Faves

Two Menomonie corn-maze-ing spots made the Top 3 for our readers. Govin’s Farm (N6134 670th St.) snagging the No. 2 spot. It’s a family favorite known for its berry pickin’ season and fall activities. Following up at No. 3, Valley Pasture Farm (E7631 N. County Road E, Elk Mound), a 15-minute drive from Menomonie, is well known for its pumpkin patch and fall activities, like its corn maze, of course.

Get Outside

Several examples of Menomonie’s unmatched scenic beauty landed in our Best Of results. The Red Cedar state trail, which weaves through the Red Cedar Valley and has its Menomonie trailhead at the depot visitor center along Highway 29, was voted the No. 2 Best Trail for Biking. Hoffman Hills State Recreation Area (740th Street) was voted No. 3 Best Trail for Hiking. It offers more than 700 acres of preserved wetlands, prairie land, and wooded hills to hike your way through. And The Devil’s Punchbowl (410th Street), a rare natural rock amphitheater, was voted the No. 1 Best Kept Secret by our readers. (We won’t tell anyone!)
