New Year's Surf & Turf Feast
New Year's Eve at the Rookery

Is it really December already? Hard to believe given our unseasonably mild weather here in NW Wisconsin. But the calendar doesn't lie. Which means the Rookery's fabulous five course New Year's Eve feast is less than a month away!

And per tradition fresh Maine lobster will once again be featured in the starring role on New Year's Eve. But this year we'll also be changing things up a bit with several delicious new non-shellfish options for every course. Check out our expanded menu below and please be prepared to specify choices for everyone in your party when you call for reservations.

The word continues to spread about the Rookery's special New Year's feast and we expect this year to be busier than ever. So call now for best choice of seating!
