That prime rib looks perfect to me. Did you use a special "Red Meat" filter on the AGFA? I love the well seasoned "sizzler" plate. My dad had a set that he always used.
 
I did not find prices at the website. What is the cost of the PR dinner?

Nope, no filtration!  You're right about those plates...they're perfect for beef and I should get myself a set.
 
The pricing was pretty reasonable.  That's the queen cut and IIRC it was no more than the low $20s and possibly even less, although after a couple of BOFs money tends to lose its value.

That photo settles it. I'm ordering the prime rib tomorrow night!

Prime rib on a Sunday night?  Quite the rebel you are...

While some WI supper clubs have closed over the past few years, every once in awhile one comes back.  Edgewater Supper Club between Fort Atkinson and Jefferson reopened/reinvented in 2013, and Lake House Inn in Newville will be reopening soon.  I'm looking forward to checking them out.

The Edgewater looks fantastic Brad. Give us a heads up on when you'll be going. It really is too bad that BuddyRoadhouse has to work all the time.

That's weird...you say "too bad" and I say "incredibly lucky".  Funny how things are sometimes.
 
I'm giving some serious consideration to Edgewater for tomorrow night.  Even though "Supper Club" is part of the name my first thought is that it's locavore-centric, so there's probably a Vegas over/under line on bartender tats.

Does that apply for both male and female bartenders?

The Edgewater looks fantastic Brad. Give us a heads up on when you'll be going. It really is too bad that BuddyRoadhouse has to work all the time.

The last Saturday of October was a rather dreary day, but that didn't stop us from heading over to Jefferson for dinner.  Since Wedl's was closing that weekend we stopped there first for a double cheeseburger appetizer before heading down county road K to Edgewater.

 
No photo but he bar area is cozy and welcoming, and I was very happy with my Old-Fashioneds.  And if the bartender was inked it was hidden under his shirtsleeves.
 
We were seated in the far riverside corner of the "auxiliary" dining room, as seen above to the right.  I didn't ask but got the feeling that this part of the building may have been a later addition to the main structure, and as a bonus it has a low ceiling (under 6' in places) and a slight tilt to the floor.

 
2 people don't require a big relish tray, and I liked the pickles.

 
The soup that night was bean with ham and/or bacon, I can't quite remember.  Lots of flavor and the carrots were big enough for me to avoid if I so chose, and if you look closely you can see that I'm not kidding about the floor having a slight slope.

 
The warm bread was some of the best I've had in a long time.  It had nice moisture and density, and the red pepper flakes in the bottom crust added a surprising burst of heat.  Noted spice wimp Mrs. Chicken did not appreciate said surprise, which meant more crust for me.

 
I would've preferred my prime rib to be more rare but it fell well into the Zone of Acceptability, so no problem here.  It was also slightly more firm than I expected but I liked the flavor and there was plenty of jus, which worked out nicely for the garlic mashed potatoes.  I didn't notice it at the time but when I ate the leftover beef the next day I discovered the spice rub had an unexpected hint of sweetness, which from my experiences is definitely unusual.  IIRC my wife had a trout dish that she liked, although I didn't get a photo.

 
Drinks, dinner and gratuity pushed the total bill close to triple digits but we enjoyed our visit and our meals, and plan to return.  The main dining room has a fireplace and there are even 2 fireside tables, so I'm thinking that a reservation for 1 of them might be in the works for next month.  And if we're lucky it'll be snowing, which would only add to the already great atmosphere.
 
However, we are NOT recommending Edgewater as a destination for the Contingent Supper Club Tour, as we've decided to keep it for ourselves and not share.  Stay away!!

Rule of thumb: If a WI Supper Club doesn't look like a dump, STEER CLEAR!

Only in Wisconsin ... Silver Alert: Village of Big Bend man missing after failing to arrive at fish fry
 
 I wish Mr. Mattick's family success in finding him safely.
 
Stop it Brad & Buddy, this is no time to be inquiring about which Supper Club he was going to.

Impressive...I wonder if all Guides Inn tables get one that size regardless of the number of guests.

WTMJ is reporting that he was found safe.  It might be time for his family to give serious thought to taking away his keys.
 
The Cotton Exchange is in Waterford and does Friday fish.

I'm with the ChickenMeister, what kind of family lets someone diagnosed with dementia drive around freely?  Glad he's safe.
 
Anyhoo...Cotton Exchange looks like it has potential, either for Friday Fish Fry, or Sunday Fried Chicken.  Any possibility for this happening this year, or is the Holiday schedule starting to strangle our calendars?

Doesn’t everyone in Wisconsin have some sort of memory loss?
Comes with the territory,
I was always told.

I remember having a wonderful dinner at the Cotton Exchange a few years back.
It was probably on the way to/from someone's camp. 
I don't remember what we had, but I do recall walking away happy FWIW
