Brambleberry has been named one of the state's top five eco-elegant inns by the Wisconsin Department of Tourism. Part of the reason we were singled out for this distinction is because we are the only Wisconsin bed and breakfast that offers organic dinners grown onsite during the growing season.

Guests love the convenience of eating at the inn. Fridays and Sundays sandwiches, salads, pasta and the area's best deep dish pizzas are available. Previous notice is appreciated but not always necessary. Eat in your guest room, our dining room, porch or ask us to pack you a picnic. Saturday evenings we serve one sit down dinner in the dining room at 7 p.m. by previous reservation only. The menu schedule for our upcoming dinners is on this page. While urban B&Bs are a short distance to numerous restaurants, out here in the country we are not. We are 10 miles to the nearest casual restaurant and about 30 miles to the area's best gourmet restaurants.

After enjoying our breakfasts, many people expressed a desire to also be able to eat dinner with us. We stand out as one of only two Wisconsin B&Bs that offer dinner every weekend. It requires an additional (very expensive) restaurant license above and beyond our B&B license. It's just cost prohibitive and doesn't make financial sense for most B&Bs to do this. We took the plunge in order to serve our guests even better. Now they don't have to navigate windy, unfamiliar country roads after dark, dodging the deer and Amish buggies that share the road. If someone wants to enjoy a couple of drinks with dinner, they can do so safely and just retire to their room after dinner. The fact that we offer the convenience of an evening meal is one of the aspects guests find very appealing about our inn.

Dinner at the inn

Harvest dinners and feasts begin July 16 and run through Oct. 29. Alternating Saturdays we serve three-course harvest dinners: salad, entree and dessert or five-course harvest feasts: soup, salad, entree, dessert, cheese and wine course to finish. These meals feature produce from our organic kitchen gardens and our own homegrown or locally sourced meats. Most and usually all meat, vegetables, fruit and herbs are wholesome slow foods with zero miles on it. This meal allows guests to get in touch with their food source.

Brambleberry's dining room

Dinner is offered every Saturday at 7 p.m.

B&B guests need to make separate dinner reservations if you would like to partake of our Saturday evening dinner. Forty-eight hours advance notice is necessary for us to plan and prepare accordingly. Each evening's menu is posted below. Innkeepers host this casual dinner. We offer one glass of wine for each guest. Guests are welcome to bring their own wine, beer or cocktails to enjoy with dinner. We offer dinner as a convenience to guests and you will not offend us if you choose to dine elsewhere.
Other food options are not available on Saturday evenings. Only whole house rentals may request a change in the menu. Our dining room is not open to the public.
