Full Disclosure: I paid for this meal with my own money and the opinions are completely my own.
I mentioned in my post yesterday that over the weekend I met up with some fellow Online BlogCon ladies for lunch. We chose to meet in Delafield because it was fairly close to the original group that was planning to get together, after a few other ladies joined the conference we ended up having some people come from Appleton and Green Bay as well! The group I met with was Sandra of Vegan Mother Hubbard, Sara of Tasty Sweet, Becca of It’s Yummilicious, Lisa of Wine and Glue, and Jen of Filling Up My Cup. It was a great time, and fun to meet and chat with these lovely ladies! It is always fun to talk about blogging with other bloggers.
So anyways, the food. The original restaurant that we were going to go to (Zin) was not open for lunch on Sundays so we ended up having to make another choice. I’ll be honest and say that I was very excited for the menu at Zin, so having to choose somewhere else was hard. We ended up going with Delafield Brewhaus. The menu had pretty much a little bit of everything, so I was pretty confident that they would be something there that I liked.
We weren’t able to make reservations ahead of time because we were only a party of six, but I was told that we shouldn’t have any problem finding a seat. I’m guessing when she told me that she forgot that there was a Packer game at the time because we were lucky to find a seat! In fact, we might have gotten the last few tables that they had available.
The menu was quite large, and I wasn’t sure what to order but I decided to go with the Brewchetta Pizza which included mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, garlic, and diced marinated tomatoes.
The pizza turned out pretty well! The cheese was layered on thick (which is always a good sign) and the tomatoes kind of served as the sauce. Though I didn’t get a whole lot of basil or garlic flavor, the pizza was pretty good, I even ate a pretty good portion of the tomato without picking around it. This was partially because I enjoyed them as the sauce element, and partially because I didn’t want to look entirely crazy and pick my food apart in front of five people that I had just met.
Overall the place was crowded with Packer fans, and there was the occasional excited scream when the game got good, but that is pretty much what I would expect from somewhere that is a brewhaus during a Packer Game in Wisconsin. It definitely isn’t a fancy place, but isn’t bad. It would be a great place to go to watch a Packer Game!
Taste: A-, not fantastic, but not bad.
Cost: A-, my pizza was $14.25 and while I did have quite a bit leftover I’m not sure it was quite worth that much for pretty much just tomatoes and cheese on crust.
Would I go there again? Eh, I’m not sure. Probably not for a full meal, but it would be a fun atmosphere to watch the game, and the staff was friendly and accommodating.
