Lunch is a big hit for Altona
By Mike Mathes
David Braun and Jason Hunsader, along with their staff, offer great food and hospitality at the Altona Supper Club on STH 32/57 in New Holstein. Their lunch buffet has become a big hit, along with dining from the menu and many other buffet specials.

Known for its successful buffet offerings, the Altona Supper Club has parlayed that reputation into a great mid-day option for dining customers.

Since last May, Altona has been offering a lunch buffet with great results.

Owners Jason Hunsader and David Braun, now in the 10th year of their partnership, have been getting great feedback. “Many people thought it was a good idea from the start, but it has been gaining in popularity throughout the winter,” Braun said.

Hunsader added, “It’s a quick way to enjoy a lunch. Not too many places in New Holstein or Kiel offer a traditional American buffet lunch.

The lunch buffet is offered Mondays through Fridays from 11-2 p. m. Offerings include broasted chicken, barbecue ribs, breaded shrimp, baked haddock, baby reds and mashed potatoes and full soup and salad bar. On Fridays, the buffet includes a bit more of the seafood opportunities.

Lunch buffet has been a great option for local businesses and industries. The buffet has also attracted seasonal groups and garden clubs who come to the area to browse at Honeymoon Acres, just a quarter mile up the road.

Although the buffet offers the optimum in luncheon convenience, Altona continues to serve off its menu at lunch, and at all meals.
