What defines a Wisconsin-style supper club?

Here’s a starter list:

1. Prime rib or surf and turf specials every Saturday night.

2. Pre-supper relish tray (preferably served on stainless steel).

3. Christmas lights strung across log structures year-round.

4. Manhattans and old-fashioned cocktails automatically served with brandy.

5. Waitresses that call you “Hon.”

6. Jell-O served as salad option.

7. Walleye is a regular menu item.

8. No cappuccino, ever.

9. All-you-can-eat fried fish on Fridays.

10. Grasshopper and pink Cadillac cocktails that are large enough to share.
