REVIEWS OF Exit 45 Restaurant & Bakery IN Wisconsin

Steve Rechtzigel

We went there for breakfast and were completely impressed by the place. The service was friendly and efficient, the food was excellent, plentiful, and reasonable, at it had the old style cafe feel. We checked out the lunch buffet before we left and the food looked and smelled delicious. Highly recommend!!!

Anastasiia Bundy

Love love love love it! Prices are low, bakery is amazing! OMG their pies. I've even taken one piece of cheesecake to go. Buffet is awesome. A lot of options in the salad part and fresh made soups. I loved three types of cakes that were placed in the buffet zone. Thank you so much for such a wonderful place!

Glen Scherdin

Really like this place. Always stopped for a meal and since they added the buffet I never miss an opportunity to stop. Very friendly staff.

robert blanke

Great prime rib service is also excellent the food was fantastic

Gypsy Gal

Great homemade food, lots of semi truck parking, super friendly faces that get to know you by name. Vicky & Jean are the best servers you could ask for. 4 stars bc the entire lot is so full of potholes. They really have to do something about that bc it's to the point that I disappointedly avoid going in there so I won't break a wheel rim. **Update** Thank you, Exit 45 Restaurant for filling the pot holes! I'm back to getting in there for your amazing food and friendly faces!!! I've changed my initial 4 stars to 5 now.

Jennifer Kaus


monica bowers

Kayla Hake

Worst food ever worst service

Steven Privitt

The food was good. The staff was very professional. Huge selecting of desserts also. It made you feel like your at home relaxing. I will be stopping by . When I'm in the area.

Brian Fahrnow

Very nice place! I stayed here last night in my semi and stopped in for dinner. My waitress named "Jean" was a very friendly lady and was very helpful with any questions I had! The restaurant has that small, family owned, welcoming feel to it that is very nice for truck drivers like myself to unwind with a big meal, and hot cup of coffee after a long day on the road! I had the special which was the chicken & biscuits and I have to say... wow! Portions were huge, and the taste was an easy 5 out of 5 stars! Also had their trucker hash browns on the side that was the biggest plate of delicious hash browns I've ever seen! Highly recommend this place! Nice, clean showers and Cenex gas station attached to it as well!

David Ronken

Nice down home atmosphere. Good food good size servings. Reasonable. Easy on and off freeway. Lots of parking.

Joe Wiebs

Small family style restaurant/convience store... food was good and hot... Being Friday I had fish n chowder... Very good.. plenty of specials to choose from..

Dennis Wesselman

Very nice homey place. Great staff, great food. Pies looked really good.

Rebecca Craft

Was good, would stop again. We travel travel 94 through MN & WI a lot. Nice diner, clean, very friendly staff. I had the fish sandwich want to try the Reuben next time.

Michelle Thompson

Food was not as described on menu. Service was lousy. She never came back to see if I wanted more "bottomless" fries or a soda refill. Seemed like I waited forever for her to bring my check. For the time I was there, it was not that busy. Knowing that waitresses don't make good pay and depend on tips, I still left a tip tho it was not deserved.

Positive Honey

Sweet spot to stop for dinner. Decent menu and prices. Desserts top the list, sooo many to choose from inc cinnamon and sweet breakfast rolls!

Ashley Bonilla

Very good fish fry buffet I would recommend taking your family out to eat there.

Mel Schultz

Very disappointed in service. Food was still really good but service was slow and unattentive to non-regulars.

Ihor Mora

Cozy country restaurant with good food and friendly service. We loved meatloaf and cheese curds. Would come back again.

Kristopher K. Arneson

I have traveled all of the continental U.S. in my truck and as far as I can say, this place has some of the best food in the whole country. Easy to park. Hard to leave. I have been thru many times and I have yet to find one thing that wasn’t delicious. As to the comment about a bad spaghetti experience, I agree with one gentleman’s observation. Don’t get anything with pasta at a truck stop or roadside diner. It’s hard to pull off and the rest of the menu here more than makes up for one dish that’s been forced into most menus it has no place being on. Try this place. You won’t regret it.

Amy Ross

It was a good place to stop and get a bit to eat the waitress was a little slow didn't refill my coke and took a few times asking for the chocolate shake but all in all it was goos


Good food. Service isn't very good though.

Charlotte Hamilton

I really like this restaurant! More like good "home cookin'".

Chris Lindsay

Dry chicken and pork or Turkey what ever it was on the buffet small portions on appetizers high prices for the appetizers too friendly staff is what saves a one star

Samantha Kottke

Never been here. But id like to experience something new...

Nick Lanners

Great burgers and decent prices

Chad Bodenheimer

Good food, service was pretty good as well. Very fair prices. Definitely much better than the normal fast food options at the big chain truck stops. Wish we had more mom and pop places like this out on the road.

Daniel Sheldon

This place is TOP NOTCH! Don’t make the mistake of passing this place up. I opted for the dinner buffet expecting it to be just like any other truck stop buffet. I was WRONG. The food was home cooked quality. Everything I tried was excellent. The staff was super friendly and attentive. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Please don’t change for anything. This place is a breath of fresh air.

Brian Cran

Food was great. People friendly . Prices not bad at all.

Josh Enger

Ok food good service lil spendy

Jon Mathwig


Jerry B

Great little mom and pop place. It is hard to find places like this when you are on the road. Truck parking, friendly people, and good food.

Sarah Young

Great home-cooked food and nice servers

Sherry Nimmo

Food in the buffet was Not hot. Fish n chicken were barely warm. Desserts ref. almost empty n not appealing. Meal wasn't worth $30.00

Kai Kong

Buffet , gravy n biscuits, open hot beef,'s all really good

Cindy Alger

We Always stop in when going through. Food, service, and prices can't be beat.

Dustin Meacham

I loved the food, especially the burgers and fries. They had great prices for the food and they also made sure I had a full cup of coffee when I needed it. Would recomend to other I know if ever a night out was needed.

Kay Smith

Took 45 minutes for a burger and a salad, salad was yummy

Jeffrey Hazuga

Country cafe with good food and service at a fair price

Dawna Remley

The food is ok. Mine was good but my husband got cold potatoes that came off the buffet and the peas had no flavor and barely warm. The roast beef was good though.

David Hasler

If you go here and don't grab a bakery item you're missing out. Comfort food all the way around. I've seen a couple posts about the spaghetti not being good. Never get Italian at a roadside diner...bad move in general. I had fried chicken...batter was so light and crispy...sides were good. Service was good...frequent checkins... glass never empty. My only complaint is that it's not well marked. Its in the gas station you see as you turn off. No big sign. But trust me...its there. Grab something from the bakery or you'll be sorry.

Ashley Swartz

Good food

Rosa Vasquez

Really enjoyed having dinner here. Comfy spot.

Lori Smith

Great service and food for a good price. Bring your hungry because the serving are great too!

David Moore

There's a reason why there's so many five star reviews. The food and service here is amazing. Glad we stopped.

William Quiggin

Just stopped by the gas station to pick up some cigars and Ice I didn't really get into the cafe the gentleman at the counter wasn't very helpful he's new. the lady that came in from the cafe was very helpful and I thanked her

satnam bumrah

Great food .. great service .. happy face . ..enjoyed Definitely deserve 5 star

Christian Smith

Waitress was excellent. It was close to closing and she didn't act tired and didn't rush us. Meatloaf was too done. I would have liked to eat it earlier. My husband liked the chicken fried steak. Green beans were best I've ever had. Great pie selection too.

Judy Fuller

Just finished the hungry man breakfast with coffee. The food was excellent and the coffee fresh. It is definitely a welcome change from the usual truck stop fare. My waitress Vicki was very friendly and welcoming. I will most assuredly be coming back. Thank you.

Chantel Roberts

Good food, good selection, clean with friendly people.

Brittany Kat

Good food and friendly staff. Very comfortable atmosphere also.

Mike Moser

Great food, and plenty of it! Truck stop atmosphere, friendly waitresses, GREAT bakery!

Diane Olmstead

Awesome food, great, friendly service

sam matuseski

Warm place good service country restaurant

Bonny Gonyer

We love the food there. Don't get there as much as we did before but enjoy when we do. Jean is a good waitress, she remembers what you like and don't like. That's a sign if a good one.

tim gedatus

If your a pie person. This is it. For miles. So many. Huge. Crazy recipes.

adavis Johnson

1st time that I have been in this restaurant & not felt welcomed. Servers acted as though they did not wish to wait on me-slow to get to table & others that came in after was waited on first. Ordered 1 scrambled egg, received 1 flat egg but oh, well, everyone does not know the meaning of scrambled ( fluffy), potato pancakes that was just in my opinion were no different than hash browns but food was good. Service & food were better the night before. If having breakfast there again, I guess that I might ought to wear something "WHITE" for better & quicker service. Reason no tip was left not because I couldn't not afford it. Money is green but mine is also brown like me

Sunny Stonecat All Rights Reserved WPOR

I've through many times for fuel, snacks, and have even parked for the night at times. I saw a sign with that day's dinner which was fish, so I decided to go in and enjoy a plate. When the food finally I thought I was being punked, the portion of fish was so small I thought it was bait. Well I guess they can't all be gems

wayne sazama

Choke n puke

Betty Godwin

The food was good. The only problem was the chicken fried steak was undercooked, in the middle, which I prefer mine done. The mashed potatoes were good, but cold. The pancake was good, but you could tell it was sitting on the grill on one side too long, because the one side was crunchy, but it was still good. The waitress seemed kinda depressing! She never refilled the glass of tea, until I got her attention! But all, in all, we would try this place again.

Marcie Hop

All food was like warm, not hot, waitress never came back to ask how food was.

Luanne Prochnow

Best home cooked food for miles. Endless cups of coffee. Friday fish fry is popular and prices are cheaper than anywhere else.

henry mckenna

We are from out of town Excellent home town Cooking Very friendly. Staff Highly recommend stopping Diamond find

John R.

Great little restaurant with a nice variety of food and beer. When we came, the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The pie is excellent here. Truckers: There’s a big lot here but there are many dropped trailers. There’s a Loves next door. Looks like 3 showers and one washer and one dryer (Go through the restaurant toward subway, then shoot left. It’s on the right.) At the time of this review, it costs $1.25 for laundry. Quarters only.

Emcg McG

Good is good and goodly priced. However they could benefit from some fresh veggies instead of canned even if it does increase the price a little.

Craig Chouinard

Good food, good price and lunch buffet. Finally a buffet other than China buffet. Awesome chicken on it.

Andrew and Morgan McAllister

We were not prepared for how amazing this food was. We’re from the Deep South where biscuits and gravy are done well, but these just blew them out of the water. Everything else was top notch as well. We needed our meals to go all of the sudden and the waitress was very nice and accommodating. Wish we lived close by! We’d stop every morning if we could.

De Lnm

Awsome food. Good. Service. I Highly recommend trying this place if you haven't yet !!!

Darrell Hall

Good food, large truck parking area.

Erik Johnson

American Cafe with a hometown feel , the menu has lots of favorites and comfort foods. It looks like it's just a gas station from the road, the restaurant shares the same building. Don't let that stop you from stopping !

Tony Zambino

Never had a bad meal here.The food is way better than the truckstop chains!

Todd Smith

Great place too eat!!!@

Gwendolyn Stanfield

Food was really good, service was fantastic! I had a Reuben, my husband had a skillet full of stuff, not sure what it was called but he loved it. I didn't have a chance to try the pie though it looked delicious. You won't leave this place hungry. My only complaint: cheese curds were crazy salty, as were my fries.

Charles Webb

I'm from Mena Arkansas and the biscuits and gravy here are real close the the Cafe's back home

Joe Spadafore

Friendly staff, very good food at reasonable prices. Clean and easily accessible. Large lot for trucks. Great place to stop for a break or overnight!


Great food very nice workers very good price if you like the old time truck stops with great food at a good price you will love this place I will go back again when I am down that way

Andrew Lindloff

Great homestyle food. Service was a little slow, but we weren't in a hurry so it wasn't a big deal. The baked goods and pie looked amazing! As I've cut out carbs, I'll just have to dream of what they taste like. :-)

Luke Stencil

Super clean great service

Cory Schlosser

Food was okay. I would've given more stars but the waitress forgot to put my son's order in; he had to wait about 15min after everyone else had already been served.

Brian Gardner

Friendly customer service and good food! Reasonable prices

Richard Sawatsky

Good food and good service reasonable price

Nate Scott

Big Dog Transport

Do not get the ...spaghetti. much tomato sauce on the noodles. ..and to much vinegar taste in the sauce and also to much tomato paste....$9.99...only ate half of it..they still charge me full price. ...Waitress never came back once at all to check up on me if i needed anything eles..... other times I've been there great service. ...

David Morgan

Great food and service. The beef stroganoff is the best around. Wish it was available on the daily menu.

Tim Zich

This restaurant is in the gas station at Exit 45 in Menominee WI. It is a family restaurant with good home cooking. The Mexican omelet was served with toast and hashbrowns. Blueberry pancakes (2 filled the plate) had lots of blueberries and ordered a side of bacon which came crispy. Coffee was good, hot and refilled as needed. Cost was very reasonable and the server was very pleasant. They serve till midnight daily. Would recommend stopping if you're looking for a good meal in the area.

Kayden Walker

Good food great prices. The staff were attentive and friendly. Definitely will stop again. Had the breakfast buffet lots of selections.

Randean Rockman

Love their food and especially their buffet!! Their fried chicken is the ultimate!! Very nice staff also!

Mike Schmitz

Great family restaurant! Good home cooking and great service!!


Love their pies. They make a fantastic cream cheese pie with a fruit topping. First time I had it with a sweetened cranberry. Awesome. Passing through I ordered cherry and blueberry. Just right. Strawberry rhubarb is great too. Try them all!!!

Derek O Professional Truck Driver

Originally we were parked across the street at the Love's to get our tire fixed and we found a parking spot for our truck overnight. After dropping off a load nearby, we came back to this Cenex spot to park (I believe the restaurant's called "Exit 45"). A little later my partner came back and told me about this wondrous meal he had at the diner here. I went in and let me tell you... had some of the best pancakes I've ever had! The type that just melt in your mouth!

Teresa Frank

I have been here three times. First time I had biscuits and gravy. The gravy was burned. Second time I had French toast. The griddle was too hot and the French toast was squishy in the middle. Third time I ordered the French dip sandwich. Another fail as the roast beef was fatty and full of gristle. I won't be back.

Ramon Rosario

Good food, good people and great pies!

nicole dau

Brenda Bonesteel

Excellent food! Great menu! Friendly, attentive staff. Perfect place to relax and enjoy a hearty meal.

Hippie NotHippie

Good home style cooking. Pricing is also reasonable. Not much for seating, so if you have a larger group than 4 I recommend calling ahead.

Dustin Smith

It had been years since I ate here. The server was fantastic, Chelsea thanks for the great service. Stopped for breakfast. Had the steak and eggs. Steak was cooked perfectly (hard to come by). Everything else was quite good. The pancakes are small compared to the last time I was here. The portions are much smaller than the last time I was here. That's the only reason for 4 stars.

Brittany Bunt

Everything was delicious!! Got the hot bar and salad bar. Split pea soup was like my grandma made it herself and the meatloaf was amazing. Vicki was our server and was extremely nice and friendly. Would definitely eat here again if i ever find myself in Menomonie, WI again.

Honey Bunches

Great food. Poor service. Left waiting and watching staff stand around. Went to pay the bill and then lady walked away from the til. Stood there 10 minutes. When we sat down at the counter waited a good 15 have anyone approach us. Terrible service.

Jim Erdman

Always great service and a tasty filling breakfast. We like to meet visiting family at Exit 45 for breakfast before they head back home. We end up taking extra time and space but always get exceptional service.
