Amid Smedlap’s Smithy Restaurant and Tavern’s rustic brick walls, servers load tabletops with platefuls of meaty American cuisine. Pairs launch the belly-filling steak dinner for two with bites from 3-ounce crab cakes slathered in rémoulade sauce or daring rescues of fried irish potatoes from the irish nachos’ cheese quicksand. The french-onion soup or Wisconsin beer-cheese soup warm up incisors for juicy slabs of seasoned 8-ounce fillets, 12-ounce Delmonicos, or 12-ounce new york strip steaks, which chefs load onto a 1,800-degree broiler to sear in maximum flavor. The steaks grace tables in a choice of three signature styles, including Smithy style—presented on a sizzling skillet drizzled in clarified butter—CJs Choice—bathed in rosemary-garlic butter—and Ellisland—a recipe culled from the chef’s recent trip to Scotland, which bedecks the meat in peppercorn-cream sauce and keeps it content with soothing bagpipe melodies.

Though Smedlap’s Smithy Restaurant and Tavern sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Smedlap's Smithy Restaurant and Tavern

Pioneer and entrepreneur Smedlap Effingtas famously forged a trail into the West, brewed his own secret moonshine, drove a general mad, and won a fair maiden's heart as a stowaway. But his most memorable contribution to the world turned out to be his descendants. Generations after Smedlap's heyday, his kin opened a restaurant to honor the memory of their infamous ancestor, instead of conducting a seance. After nearly 30 years in business, ownership was passed to Jim Favorite and his family, who had blazed a trail West in the footsteps of Smedlap.

After years of working in the steak-house business, Favorite snatched up the opportunity to transform a local institution into his dream restaurant. Though he and his chefs changed the menu a bit, he made sure to preserve some of the beloved traditions, such as the two-story slide behind the hostess stand. The overhauled menu includes a varied blend of dishes, from lake perch to lean burgers decked out with a dozen possible cheeses. Though broad, the menu's focus remains the steak, with choice cuts served on a plank and drizzled in peppercorn sauce.
