Special occasions require a special atmosphere. Warm cherry and mahogany woods, the soft embrace of leather seating, romantic lighting, a live trio providing a relaxed ambience, professional and experienced wait-staff catering to your needs, and, of course, a titillating menu including steak, prime rib, and sautéed walleye. Sound like your idea of heaven? Then owner’s Doron & Derek Jensen invite you to spend an upscale evening with them at Jensen’s Supper Club.
The Jensen’s only serve dinner at their club. Why I asked? “Because it’s the time of day when people expect to find magic in their dining experience,” Doron told me. And magic is what they provide. Most people spend no more than forty-five minutes on a meal at the average “chain” restaurant. “At Jensen’s, couples linger a minimum of one and a half hours,” he continued. “People don’t come here to get ‘food for fuel.’ They come here to celebrate.”
In addition to the popular steak, sautéed walleye, and prime rib, the fourth biggest selling item in the restaurant is the Fillet & Lobster, which Doron recommends for the first-timer looking for something extra special. The menu selection is spare but the items are grand. There are eight appetizers ranging from Bob’s Bread to Crab Cakes. They also have a Chicken Caesar salad and two soups. Moving to the entrees, under Chops they offer Rack of Lamb, Pork Chops, or Pork Fillets. In the beef department they carry three sizes of Prime Rib and the house specialty, Blackened Prime Rib. They also serve Filet Mignon, Ribeye, and Top Sirloin.
Jensen’s bar is famous for its Martinis and Manhattans which are served with the shaker and ice. They do not serve any ‘house’ brands. The bar is only stocked with premium pours. Jensen’s can also accommodate large groups for weddings, corporate events, and special occasions. You will find it’s best to call well in advance for reservations so Jensen’s can guarantee your seats. Jensen’s is open Sunday & Monday from 4:30pm to 9:00pm, Tuesday thru Thursday from 4:30pm till 10:00pm and Friday & Saturday, 4:30pm until 11:00pm.
