Starting Feil's Supper Club
When Herb and Harriet Feil posed for a photo on the steps of the old Club 73 supper club, they shook the hands with the former owners, jangled the keys to the front door and launched their dream of running their own business. It was July 1, 1969, and I was just eight years old. Little did I know, their dream would become mine someday.
Learning and loving the family business
My parents renamed it Feil’s Supper Club and set to work making it their own. As the oldest of their five children, I was the first to help out, making bread, peeling onions and stocking the beer coolers. Soon my siblings followed, each working alongside our parents to help make the restaurant a success. When I got to college, I turned my love of culinary arts and hospitality into a life-long career in this community I’m proud call home.
Gemütlichkeit and tradition
As a family, we still carry on my parents’ vision – to create a delicious, down-to-earth Wisconsin supper club experience. Along with Prime Rib, a Friday fish fry, Sunday brunch buffet and great Old Fashioneds, we’re also known for well-loved German dishes and homemade bread – a skill passed down through the generations going back to Wangen, Germany. Gemütlichkeit comes easily here as family and friends linger, laugh and share stories around great food.
