My husband and son discovered Freddy Valentine’s Public House (restaurant) while they were walking around in the lovely town of Spring Green, Wisconsin. They had already eaten dinner somewhere else, but my son, mom and I came back a few days later to eat there.
Freddy Valentine’s is in the 1915 Spring Green State Bank Building. I love the building – it’s beautiful on the outside and inside.
As you can learn by reading their website, the Neo-Classical Revival sculpture pieces on the front of the building look like marble, but they are really Terra Cotta.
The owners David and Jeaneane Owen have done such an incredible job decorating the restaurant while preserving and honoring the bank’s history. I personally love being in the restaurant because it reminds me of Manhattan. Sophisticated and comfortable.
I am not an architectural writer…but they repurposed many parts of the bank which adds charm.
We ate in this lovely room. We arrived before the restaurant filled up, and had the owner, David, all to ourselves!
I could see eating a leisurely meal at Freddy Valentine’s, drinking a lot of rich red wine or a martini, and
passing out sleeping at the nearby House on the Rock Resort.
But what about the food? We loved it all.
Thank you for creating this restaurant, David and Jeaneane. We will return many more times.
