Not what it used to be

We used to go here all the time when our friends lived on the waterfront, but our last trip shows how much they just don't seem to care any more. The pizza was nothing special anymore, the drinks were filled to the brim with ice and not so much alcohol. Not a trip worth taking anymore.

This was a Friday night, June 12th at 9pm to be exact. First impressions were promising but as soon as we sat in the lower level, the musician that started playing drove us to the upper level. His gear was failing, the volume was too loud, and his skillset seemed to be lacking. After relocating to the upper level away... More

We have been here before for the pizza which was always very good. Tonight my wife and I decided to try the dinner specials. I had the roast duck which has always been a favorite of mine, and my wife had the salmon. We were thrilled! My roast duck was cooked to perfection and came with a Door County cherry... More

Well........for the most part the view and the evening were great but what we got from the restaurant was not so great. The weather was wonderful and we chose to use the patio for our dining experience. We were told that if we wanted a drink we should get it at the bar and bring it down to the patio... More

Another treat in store for you when you visit "The Waterfront" and that is the view. Great views of Browns Lake makes the visit just that much better.

We were there on a Friday night (5/24/14) and yes it was a Holiday weekend but that is no excuse for the shoddy service. Came in and we were told would be about 15 to 20 minutes for a table, not bad, sat at the bar and had a drink, 45 minutes later having seen people come in and be... More

We had heard from numerous people that the view is spectacular, it was breathtaking! I only wish the food had been comparable to the view! The prime rib was too well done thus dry, and while the steaks were OK,there are numerous other places with better steaks to be had for less. The staff tried very hard but their timing... More

Came in for our anniversary for dinner. The bartender "candy" was extremely rude. Made us feel like we were a nuisance to even bother her for a drink. She made political comments almost the entire time while pouring herself cocktails. The food was mediocre at best and the service was something out of flo's diner. I will never return.

This restaurant is situated on the lake. It has great views. You can eat downstairs outside, there's up pizza parlor type area also on the lower level, or upstairs in the main dining room or bar. We opted on a Saturday night, to eat in the main dining room. We were seated near a huge window with great view of... More

The upstairs dining room is where we were seated. A nice large room with huge windows overlooking the lake. The hosted kept calling us "guys". Multiple times. It was annoying. We were there on a Saturday night when the special was prime rib. $18 queen $22 king. Very reasonable. We both ordered our prime rib RARE. My husbands was more... More
