Had to lower my rating on this restaurant

This was my daughter's favorite restaurant but not anymore. Every year we go and sit outside by the lake and have lunch and/or dinner. This year they changed the menu and we were not pleased with the new menu. She does not want to go back. Don't get me wrong... the view is still beautiful and... read more

My wife and I stayed next door at Bed & Breakfast. We chose Norton's simply because it was a short stroll along the lake from the B&B. What we found was a terrific little restaurant. Great food, friendly service and unmatched views of the lake. I had their knuckle sirloin steak and my wife had the walleye. Both were delicious.... More

My husband and I stopped here on our brandy old fashion trek through Wisconsin's supper clubs. We enjoyed outdoor dining and the setting was lovely. The bar inside was very cool. The drink was good but not the best on our trip. We were rather full so both ordered salads because there was limited sandwiches to order and the entrees... More

My husband and I visited the Green Lake area for the first time and choose Norton's for dinner one evening. We like to try local establishments when we travel and we were greatly pleased with Norton's. such a lovely location right on the lake. We had a table with a lake view - beautiful. The dinner was really top notch... More

We were staying next door & thought we would try it out. We weren't sure because we are not big eaters or spenders. There were no prices on the website. Our main course was delicious, a very good pasta dish, our first interaction was a lukewarm cup of coffee, brought by the 'drink' server. The waitress caught it & promptly... More

Great location right on the lake, best to dine if you take your boat. The bar is probably the best in town. The food is pricey and is average. The ownership changed a few times, still waiting for a bit more creative menu.

I think this is best place on the lake. They have outdoor seating as well as a large interior. True WI supper club feel. Great drinks and really good sea food.

We liked this restaurant so much we went twice! The setting is right on the lake, so beautiful! The staff could not be nicer, and to top it all off the food was excellent!

Extremely cordial place. When we arrived without reservations, they saw that one of our party was using a cane and quickly arranged a table for us, with a view of Green Lake. The service was a little laggy, although cheerful, and the food was tasty. A few dishes had a slight "warmed over" taste as though they'd sat under the... More
