It was a beautiful day and we had seats outside, looking at beautiful green lake. With an atmosphere like this, one expects mediocre food. On the contrary, my daughter indicated that her salad with tuna strips on top, was the best she had ever had. Altogether, a perfect lunch.

Two hour wait for a table, only to eat expensive and mediocre food. Not a real Wisconsin supper club experience like it used to be. They have tried to go upscale and failed miserably.

My husband and I went here for dinner 8/13/14. He ordered scallops and got 4 for $29 and I had pork tenderloin that was $26. The tenderloin was good but very spicy and I'm not sure if it was the rub or Demi sauce, for me it ruined the pork tenderloin. Definitely not worth the money. No one ever told... More

Norton's does everything right. Four of us came for dinner on Friday night and were given excellent seats near the fireplace with a great view of the lake. We were immediately greeted by a cocktail server who took our drink orders while we perused the menu. All of us had one of the fish dishes. My wife had the Walleye... More

This restaurant is the best in Green Lake. It's on the water so it has a terrific view. The food (walleye especially) was very good. Service was excellent. If you're with a group, be sure to rent a pontoon boat and ride around the lake.

This establishment seems to cater to its affluent local population. We felt as though we were imposing on the staff just by being there. Food was OK, but nothing we would return for. Walleye was good, but shrimp and scallops were very tough

A classic supperclub setting. We ate the wallets almandine per other reviewers' recommendations. It was flaky, well-cooked fish. Very rich and buttery. Our kids had fettucini Alfredo and it was fine, nothing outstanding. The manager was personable and kind, service was all right. The popover rolls were homemade and also buttery.

I had heard that Norton's has the best Walleye in town, and it was tender, carefully buttered and topped with slivers of almond. Delicious! I enjoyed the whole meal - salad, soup, bread, kale, and wild rice complemented the fish perfectly. Yum!

Having been brought up in the restaurant business this place hit all my nostalgia buttons. The bar is a very typical nightclub atmosphere that I would expect for Green Lake. Beautiful views, great service and prompt attention. We chose to eat indoors and requested a table for a half hour after we arrived. Like clockwork we were seated and greeted... More

Being that I have been going to Nortons every so often since I was a kid (36 now) and used to love the place, it takes a lot for me to say I won't be coming back. First off the menu was very limited for a dinner menu and half of the items on there were only on Fridays. Second... More
