We had breakfasts twice and the Saturday night buffet. Especially enjoy eating as many crab legs as we want-with the great drawn butter.

Menu is limited, but my selections were good, very pleasing. Service was good. We were seated and served in a timely manner. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxing overlooking the lake.

Service for the staff in this restaurant is like asking them for a massive favour. Forget going here if you are a vegetarian - there is NOTHING to eat. Just your basic, very basic, salad ie lettuce leaves. Stuck in 1950s Wisconsin food mentality

Visited the Waterfront during our weekend stay at The Abbey. Our waitress was pleasant and friendly, but the food was just average and the drinks were terrible. I ordered 2 drinks from their specialty menu. The first was a strawberry cheesecake martini. Tasted like straight vodka. Bitter and sour. Not at all what I expected from the menu description.

On a Sunday night, August 9, we had a party of nine. We were there for the chicken dinner. It took an hour to get our food. We got one small salad to split between nine people. The chicken was overcooked and dry. The food was awful. They should not be in business.
