Adam the manager is not doing his job! Since he is part of the family he gets a pass. The food quality is awful, the condiments are delivered to your table with yesterday's dried drips and crusty containers. You have to wait 15 minutes for bread at peek dinner hour with only 7 tables filled. Food is served cold! Food... More

We have eaten here for both lunch and dinner. The menu has a wide selection of entrees, and the fresh baked bread is wonderful. We also got take away several times and the food was very good..

When you want two different dinners and the dinner partner wants something else, you both win. I had the Crabmeat Stuffed Flounder with mustard aioli and the Santa Fe Tuna with Maryland jumbo lump crabcakes & lobster creole sauce which was my favorite of the two, but both were great. They give you 1/2 portions of each and it still... More

Although the waitress wasn't as well-informed as she should have been, initially telling us that all of their fish was farm-raised, she was very friendly and eventually found out that the perch and mahi mahi was wild-caught. I then ordered the blackened mahi mahi and my husband had their ribs. Although they weren't supposed to be "fall off the bone,"... More

We made a reservation here for my husband's birthday. As I have Celiac disease and must eat gluten free, we selected this restaurant for it's full gluten-free menu (as well as the reputation of Kruse and Muer establishments). Our meals were delivered by someone other that our original waitperson and my meal was not gluten free. I was told they... More

Salads are not included with entree. Wine is overpriced. There is no lake and no view. Food was was not hot just warm. If I want to spend this kind of money I will do it at Mitchells, they do a far superior job all around.

We have eaten there many times and never had a bad meal. The bread is to die for!!! My favorite dish is not always on the menu but if the stuffed flounder is available, its wonderful- crabmeat on top with white sauce, the salmon is great, the seafood fettuccine is another great dish to order, and if you are doing...

When deciding to dine with some friends we had not seen in a long time we suggested 3 local area restaurants. When they said Kruse and Muehr on the Lake at first I was slightly disappointed as when they changed their name to "grille" a while ago the quality and service was not up to par.. HOWEVER, we all 5... More

Once or twice a year, our immediate family likes to celebrate by having a good meal together... Krause & Muer, while a little pricy, could always be counted upon for a great meal... Tonight, we were sadly disappointed. Our party started with 5 orders of the fried onion appetizer..(each consisting of 6 onion rings on a stick)...Initially I was concerned... More
