AMAZING NEW MENU
In early 2017, we hired a new chef — "Chef Jeff" — to create an amazing new menu for us. To honor our old clients, we instructed Chef Jeff to include many of the local's favorite breakfast and lunch dishes. We also gave him the liberty of creating a delicious and succulent new menu to offer our customers, both new and old, exciting new dishes that are guaranteed to tempt the taste buds.
The end result is a combination of both local favorites and incredible new culinary creations — utilizing only the freshest, local ingredients. That is what makes Sauk-Prairie Grill's food so spectacular! Don't take our word for it, drop by and taste our new culinary creations & local favorites for yourself.
Our amazing new menu includes "new favorites”, such as: Filet Mignon; Captain Dick's Gulf Shrimp; Chicken Parmesan; New York Strip; Chicago Style Chicken Marsala; Four Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms; Coconut Shrimp; and Pistachio-Pecan Walleye... and so many more!
Sauk-Prairie Grill is proud to introduce our new Brick-Oven Pizzeria. We now serve the best, hand-made Brick-Oven Pizzas in all of South Central Wisconsin. Our signature sauces are made in-house and the fresh toppings are prepared daily. In future menus, we will be rolling out calzones and stromboli.
You may choose from "Featured Pies" or "Build Your Own" pizzas. You have to taste them to believe just how delicious they really are. Stop by the restaurant and try our new pizzas or give us a call to take one home with you to enjoy with your family.
In fact, we have so many incredibly tasty new dishes that we cannot mention them all here. Click on the “Amazing New Menu” button above to review our complete menu. Careful, though, it’s a mouth-watering experience!
In keeping in the tradition of serving our "local favorites"; we still offer your most beloved dishes — only now — they are even more delicious than ever. The local favorite dishes on our breakfast menu include: Steak & Eggs; Buttermilk Pancakes; Biscuits and Gravy; Hash Browns smothered in Carr Valley's Cheddar Cheese; our famous Giant Cinnamon Rolls; and, last but not least, our most popular and beloved, Breakfast Skillet.
From our lunch menu, we still offer local favorites such as our Double-Decker Club Sandwich; our newly designed Reuben Sandwich, called "The Rube"; our Hot Beef Sandwich — with mashed potatoes between the two slices of our artisan bread slathered in homemade gravy. Yummy! Additionally, while not on our menu, we offer the savory Country Fried Steak, as one of our daily specials. It is so popular we are considering adding it, permanently, to our new menu. We still serve a Soup of the Day and offer daily specials — so be sure to check out our Daily Specials board each time you visit us.
Don’t forget, we still have the best, award-winning pies in Sauk-Prairie. Grab a slice and have a cup of coffee or take one home with you. It’ll be sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.
Relax… Have Pie!
ENJOY THE AMBIANCE OF OUR HISTORIC BUILDING
From everyone at Sauk-Prairie Grill, we extend our warmest welcome to you and your family to our "American Classic" building — with the classic, "Boomtown" front awning — and the 166-year-old, historical charm of our newly remodeled, unforgettably beautiful building. We are located right next to the beloved Wisconsin River at 200 Phillips Boulevard, in Sauk-City, Wisconsin.
Our new classic interior proudly showcases hundreds of local historical "Sauk Village" photos on the walls. It's like a "museum of photography" — over a century of history of the growth and evolution of "Sauk-Prairie" Wisconsin. "Sauk Village", today commonly referred to a Sauk City, was incorporated on March 30th, 1854. "Sauk Village's" original charter continues to the present, making Sauk City the oldest incorporated village in Wisconsin. Sauk-Prairie Grill is located just a short, 20 minute drive east of Madison.
Sauk-Prairie Grill's history begins in late 2016 when the property was purchased by Richard Gillen. He and his wife Joyce originally used the name Leystra's Restaurant. During early 2018 we closed for 2 months to do a complete interior and kitchen remodeling, changing our name from Leystra's to Sauk-Prairie Grill™. We chose this name to honor the generations of honest and hard-working families in "Sauk-Prairie". It is our way of saying "Thank You" for all you have done to make the Sauk-Prairie community what it is today... "Our own little slice of Heaven."
At Sauk-Prairie Grill, we're convinced that once you visit our unforgettable, historic building — whether you are just "passing through" Sauk City and looking for a great place to eat — or a "local" who enjoys the "Best Breakfast Spot in Town" — you'll be back!
Thank you, all, for allowing us to come into your beloved community — giving us a heart-warming, "Wisconsin Welcome" and allowing us to provide, to all of you, phenomenal food in an unforgettable and magical, family-friendly environment. It really is our pleasure to serve you.
— Dick & Joyce Gillen & Dedicated Staff.
