Book Overview

Wisconsin Supper Clubs: Another Round, a sequel to author/photographer Ron Faiola's wildly popular first book on the topic (now in its sixth printing), gives readers a peek inside 50 additional clubs from across the Badger State.

Traveling from the Northwoods to Beloit, Faiola documents some of the most exceptional and long-lived restaurants that embrace the decades-old supper club tradition. These are largely family-owned establishments that believe in old-fashioned hospitality, slow-paced dining, and good scratch cooking.
In this guide, readers will find interviews with supper club proprietors and customers as well as a bounty of photographs of classic dishes, club interiors, and other scenes from Faiola's extensive travels.

Despite the chain restaurants that continue to dominate the culinary landscape, supper clubs across the Midwest are thriving today in many of the same ways as they have for the past 80 years. The term supper club has even been borrowed recently by the burgeoning underground restaurant scene, which champions an upscale-yet-communal dining experience similar to that offered by traditional supper clubs.

Wisconsin Supper Clubs: Another Round is a new, intimate look at this unique American tradition, one that invites supper club enthusiasts and newcomers alike to enjoy a second helping of everything that made Wisconsin Supper Clubs such a hit.

   Supper Clubs are an institution in Wisconsin and this book does an excellent job of describing them.
The book came in the stated time. She was so thrilled to receive this book, so that it did meet my expectations and more. I am thinking about ordering the book for myself. If you are interested in the history of some of the different supper clubs in Wisconsin, whether still in operation or not, I would recommend this book and the first book by this author, as they cover fine supper clubs with no repeat information. The photos are clear and add to the mystic of the supper clubs.

   This is a FUN book for new adventures on eating out.
The descriptions of all the supper clubs are accurate and so far the adventures and road trips we have taken because of the discoveries in this book have been all deliciously rewarding! And menu items such as the Wisconsin Friday Night Fish Fry have been uniquely different, with each supper club having their own spin!

   Keep supper clubs alive!
As a fellow Wisconsonite and avid super club supporter, I bet I received both the first and second series of this book for my father as a Father's Day gift. He loves them and they sit for everyone who visits them to also enjoy.

   Good way to find new iconic places to eat in Wisconsin.
We also have the first book! Good description of the popular Wisconsin Supper Clubs. We take the book with us when we go to one of these clubs and sometimes the owner signs it. We list our visit and date what we had when we visited.

   So we thought these books would be a great read for him
These have been gifts to my grandfather, who loves to drive around WI trying various establishments. Now that he is older, it is harder for him to do. We thought that these books would be a great read for him.
