Wisconsin Supper Clubs
– an Old Fashioned Experience
Ishnala is featured in a film on Wisconsin supper clubs airing on Wisconsin Public Television.
The film, titled “Wisconsin Supper Clubs – an Old Fashioned Experience,” was produced by Ron Faiola. It aired on the statewide network of public television stations.
“Wisconsin supper clubs have been a dining tradition for generations, but as corporate chains increase, are these family owned establishments fading away or will they find a resurgence with their unique identities and scenic locations?” the movie’s Web site states.
“(The film) shows why supper clubs are such a big part of Wisconsin’s food culture and the full experience of supper club dining: a brandy old fashioned sweet at the bar, relish trays at the table, huge portions of steaks, seafood and game, and the friendly, loyal customers who have been dining at their favorite places for so many years.”
Ishnala was one of only 12 supper clubs in Wisconsin featured. The film includes extensive interviews with owners and lots of footage of the beautiful setting overlooking tranquil Mirror Lake.
