Great Location, Great Property

We ate outside and it was very nice out. We had plenty of time to enjoy the weather, unfortunately they are short staffed (we heard this is the norm) and it took a very long time to get served. By the time we got food the weather had changed to cooler and cloudy. I know they can't do anything... read more

We like to go out to Cattails for an evening with the families (children and grandchildren). Cattails has a full menu with Hamburgers, Ribs, great steaks, and terrific walleye fillets. The rest of the entres are excellent too. The atmosphere is very woodsy/ outdoorsy. It is quite clean and the staff is friendly. There is a full bar and they... More

The bar area was loud and only a couple of folks in there...they do need to put up something to block the bar area...the new doors to separate dining area helped but not enough. Mixed iceburg lettuce with greens - seems many do this. The mozzarella sticks are priced way to high. The southwestern dip worth buying. Vegetables seemed frozen... More

Terribly slow service and there were hardly any customers there. What do they do when they're busy? Food was mediocre at best. Won't be going back.

Brunch was delightful! The bloody mary was my favorite - but only by a little. The food was outstanding, and the service was second to none! Can't wait to go back for the night-life scene!

Had a girls night out and we choose Cattails - heard about the great food. We sat ourselves down, and then proceed to wait for service. Finally after 15 minutes we asked if we was going to get served. That was the start of it - everything was late. People that came in after us was leaving after having a... More

I have eaten here several times through out the years. I find the food better than the service which is not a slam just the way I look at life. (My mother was a waitress for 40 yrs and I have owned two bars) There is a big difference in an order taker and a server. The food is good... More
