Since the 1920’s, a restaurant has stood at 10909 Sheridan Road in Pleasant Prairie, less than two miles from the Illinois state line. Since 2001, Sue and Pete Neahous have owned and operated The Village Supper Club at this location. It began as a hobby for Sue. She can be found in the kitchen every night, with their son Steve helping most nights. What started as a seven-table restaurant has expanded over the years to now include a second dining room located on the second floor – it’s handicapped accessible and open on Fridays and Saturdays. Customers are welcome to walk through the kitchen to access the upstairs.

The Village Supper Club is known for its prime rib on Saturday nights, cod fish fry every night, and Friday Fish Fry. The Friday Fish Fry options vary by week, and could include pan fried walleye, pan fried sea bass, blue gill, battered cod, and/or fish tacos.

The menu includes appetizers, salads, sandwiches, chicken, steaks, seafood, and a vegetarian dish. The Saturday menu is different; in addition to the prime rib it includes such items as lobster tail and one pound Snow Crab legs.

There are daily specials. Examples include meatloaf, chicken/mozzarella sausage with roasted peppers on a hoagie roll, Asian style chicken salad, pepper steak over rice, fried chicken, stuffed cabbage rolls, lamb chops, stuffed peppers, and grilled pork chops. Homemade dessert of the day options could include such items as triple layer hot fudge cake, rhubarb pie, strawberry pie, apple butterscotch pie, or peach pie.

Hayden Evans has been a customer at The Village Supper Club for at least 20 years. He and his wife Martha visit about twice a month. He really enjoys the friendly atmosphere and talking to Pete and Sue – he recalls being one of their first customers. He’ll bring Sue wild blackberries, which she makes into pie. His favorite special is the Shepherd's Pie, though he shares, “the menu is diverse to find anything you would like to eat. I would put their food up against any place in town. The servers are always friendly, and willing to listen to my jokes. Martha is limited as to what she can eat, but is always able to find something on the menu.” The couple favors dining in the upstairs room. They hope to reserve this space for their 50th wedding anniversary in three years.

The Pleasant Prairie Historical Society hosts events at The Village Supper Club. In June 2017, local historian Al Westerman presented a program on Pleasant Prairie in the Prohibition Era at the restaurant. The building where the restaurant is located has quite its own prohibition stories – if only the walls could talk! In June 2016, the historical society hosted an Old Fashioned Supper Club Event at the restaurant. The presenter was Ron Faiola, a producer, director and author of “Wisconsin Supper Clubs: An Old Fashioned Experience”. The Village Supper Club is featured in his sequel book, “Wisconsin Supper Clubs: Another Round”.

The restaurant is open Wednesdays and Thursdays, 4 to 9:30 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays, 4 to 10 p.m. As the owners like to say, “Blue jeans and reservations recommended.”
