The middle of winter is the perfect time for romance. When it’s cold outside, there’s no better place to be than indoors with someone you love. So, what better way to warm up the coldest months of the year than a romantic dinner at one of Wisconsin’s most relaxing getaway destinations. Here are three great restaurants for you and your sweetheart.

Outdoorsman Restaurant

The Outdoorsman Restaurant in Boulder Junction

Boulder Junction is a favorite winter hideaway for travelers from around Wisconsin and the Midwest. The pine trees covered in snow and the wonderful tranquility make for a truly romantic atmosphere. The Outdoorsman Restaurant, with its warm and inviting dining room and authentic décor, is well-suited to this peaceful locale.

The menu at The Outdoorsman is unlike any other in the Northwoods. Start your meal with an expertly prepared appetizer. The appetizer menu includes exotic delights such as pheasant ravioli and Oysters Charleston. For dinner, choose from steaks, seafood, pork and a full range of poultry, as well as wild game. Where else can you enjoy grilled bison, ostrich filets and elk medallions? The Outdoorsman is an extraordinary restaurant and the perfect place to enjoy a romantic evening.

Romantic Dinner at Louisianne's

Louisianne’s in Middleton

Spice up your relationship with dinner at Louisianne’s Etc. in downtown Middleton. This Cajun restaurant is widely regarded as one of the best in the state. Start your meal with a pulled pork crepe or escargot. For dinner, try sweet pepper bouillabaisse or traditional etouffee. For dessert, you need to have the key lime pie—it’s extraordinary.

One particularly romantic feature of Louisianne’s Etc. is the live music. Tuesday through Saturday, the restaurant features live blues and jazz piano. It’s a wonderful accompaniment to the amazing food and authentic atmosphere.

If you’re taking a romantic drive along the Onalaska Traditions is a mandatory stop. This cozy restaurant serves up pure romance. The dining room is beautifully decorated and sets just the right mood for enjoying the fantastic food.
