Piggy’s Restaurant in La Crosse, WI

Piggy’s Restaurant serves up far more variety and quality than a typical BBQ joint. It’s also worth mentioning that they can accommodate many dietary restrictions. Menu items change seasonally to ensure freshness, and they also have a great wine list. So, with the wide number of options available at Piggy’s, there’s something for everyone.


The Restaurant

At Piggy’s Restaurant in La Crosse, WI, they stock the smoker with local hickory and apple wood. The prime rib, pork chops, chicken, pork back ribs and swordfish all come out of that smoker. A brief glance at the menu will reveal delicious appetizers, scallops, lamb chops, and even duck. We recommend the bacon-wrapped shrimp, as well as the pulled pork roast with raspberry chipotle BBQ sauce.

The desserts aren’t the typical BBQ banana pudding. Nope, here you’ll find a chocolate tower cake with white chocolate sauce and fudge, and a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake. The restaurant is only open for dinner starting at 4:00 on Saturday and Sunday and 5:00 Monday – Friday. Consider making reservations as well.


The Smokin’ Blues Lounge

If you’re looking for somewhere to eat lunch in La Crosse, then head over to Piggy’s Smokin’ Blues Lounge. It serves a lunch menu from 11-2, and opens daily for dinner at 4:00. The menu boasts more casual offerings, like burgers, salads, pastas, and soups. We love the roasted potato cheddar soup, the pretzel bites, and the blackened cod BLT. Oh, and definitely the salted caramel pie with Oreo crust.

But the entertainment offerings really set the lounge apart. On Friday nights, comedy shows start at 9:00. Tickets are $8, and reservations are encouraged. Saturdays, the lounge hosts live blues bands starting at 8:00. Their website has a schedule of upcoming performers. You’ll enjoy this unique dining and entertainment experience!
