Depends on the place. The quality varies greatly. Considering that most of these places hit their peak before the Beatles played on Ed Sullivan, they have had plenty of time to decline. And most of them are packed to the hilt with octogenarians who have never tried sushi.

Oh, they're familiar with sushi -- they just use a different form of it on the end of their hooks when they're after an even bigger chunk of fish.

A more telling question than how many Americans are familiar with sushi is how many Japanese are familiar with walleye?

I think it depends upon the individual experience in Wisconsin. The problem with US beef is the grading has changed. It is no longer leqally sold as Prime or Porterhouse.

I don't know that I would ever eat true sushi. I am not a fan of vineagar or salt and I can buy fresh bluefin tuna locally when it is available. Sadly, I've known several people who were terribly ill after eating the raw fish - which has a great deal to do with ignorance. .

For those that don't know what sushi is, here a primmer.

BTW you gotta get out more there are probably half a dozen places that are less thn 15 minutes from my house that serve traditional Nigirizushi, Makizushi, Inarizushi, Sukeroku, and Chirashizushi.

Heck, you know where you ought to go for some diversity and a hipster vibe:

Sushi House

Sagano Sushi

Sen Sushi Bar

I was referring to the overall quality of restaurants labeled as "supper clubs", and not to meat quality. Some supper clubs are still going strong in Wisconsin, though most have seen better days.

So, would you say that supper clubs are for "townies" in Wisconsin?

Depends on where it's located. If it's in an area that doesn't get a lot of tourism, then yeah. If it's in a heavily tourism-dependent area it will still look and feel like a hokey townie joint because they're trying to sell the "you've escaped the city and now you're in the hinterlands" atmosphere to the tourists. The main difference is the menus at the tourist-dependent supper clubs tend to have slightly more up-market pretensions (and prices to match) but for the most part they still maintain their meat-and-potatoes (or fish-and-potatoes) emphasis.
