Janssen's offers an excellent menu with reasonable prices and a terrific view of the lake. Diners have the option of eating outside on the patio on sunny days. The only downside is that it is closed in the winter.

Janssens Lakefront restaurant is one of my all time favorites in the Greers Ferry Lake area. It looks deceptively like a roadside diner. Don't be fooled. A quick look at the menu, the crowd sitting around outside, and the incredible dessert case at the front door tells you that you have found someplace special. Beth runs the front and Tim... More

Great steak with mushrooms. Homemade onion rings -yummy. Fresh salad bar was small but adequate. View of the lake was relaxing. Waitress was very nice - attentive but not bothersome. We arrived around 4:30 & received our choice of seating. When we left around 5:45 the small restaurant was almost full. Advice: arrive early.

The adventure begins when you arrive. If by vehicle or boat (they have a boat dock) the restaurant is great. Whether burgers or steaks the chef prepares the food superbly. The salad bar is well stocked as is the regular bar (you can join the private club). Service is fast and friendly!

Janssen's is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday with a Sunday brunch. If you are staying in this area, this is the place to dine. Sunday brunch is one of the best I have ever seen at $12.95. Menu meals are very reasonable and delicious. They serve alcoholic drinks after you pay a $10.00 "membership" that is good for one year.... More

Last fall we ate on a Friday nite and the special was catfish. Now I've had catfish just about at every restaurant in the universe. Some good and a lot not so good. Boy was I surprised when my plate arrived. No strips, no steaks but a whole channel cat fried to perfection with what was obliviously home made hush... More

Yes, the view is wonderful. The service is always professional. But, the food is why we go to Janssen's. I do not review a restaurant based upon one visit. My wife and I have dined there about six times. Each visit was 5 stars. They certainly have a superb salad bar. I order the same dish every time while my... More
