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

Besides having a great view of the lake, this place was mediocre. We went with a large group of people and ordered thin crust pizzas. While this was probably our fault, we didn't order nearly enough and the pieces were cut so tiny that they were practically bite size, which I did not enjoy. They seemed overpriced too. The waitress... More

We visited the Waterfront in Burlington Wisconsin to enjoy the beautiful view of Browns Lake and enjoy the highly rated thin-crust pizza. The crust was thin and crisp...great start. But the pizza arrived luke warm. No hot cheese to burn the top of your mouth; it was more like an afterthought like, "oh yeah, whose pizza is that under the... More

First time at Waterfront...really enjoyed the Friday evening out/nautical lake atmosphere. Spectacular view of Brown's Lake from Bar & Dining Room on main level. Thinking there are areas we probably (?) did not see/experience yet. Waterfront (?) lower level, private dining room(s) for private/large parties (?). Looking forward to returning to find out more about what we don't know. Conveniently... More
