Latest Dairyland Family Restaurant news and reviews
We picked a good time to come to Dairyland: on our way home from a long road trip. The grogginess and road fatigue made the hominess of this family restaurant all the more enjoyable. But like any family place, the cuisine is more serviceable than remarkable.
Nichole's meal was hit-or-miss. Its low point was a none-too-appealing salad of damp iceberg lettuce, carrots, and the biggest slab of cucumber ever. The coffee was average. The chicken and rice soup was pleasantly peppery, and the side dish of canned peas was reminiscent of home. The stars of the meal were the scallops themselves: tender, yummy, irreproachable, they reminded Nichole of Louie's in Milwaukee.
JM found the soup oniony but quite good. JM's sandwich was a bit on the dry side (made worse by small beverage glasses), but was overall OK. The fries were just decent, but JM really dug the rolls. Yum!
There's not much we can add to recommend or discourage Dairyland except that they are smoke-positive, if that matters to you.
