Very pleasant experience for our group of 10.

We had a relatively large birthday group of 10 people. The staff had no problem getting set up for our group. The wait staff was very pleasant and helpful answering any questions. Our group ordered a wide range of meals from the menu including fish, chicken, beef and pork. Everyone was very happy... read more

This may just be the best restaurant in the Green Lake area. The food is delicious, the staff is professional and friendly, and the view of the lake is majestic. They have a really nice menu with fish and meat options, and I have never had anything there that i didn't love immediately.

The service was awesome! The food was average. We went on a Friday and I was surprised to see how empty the establishment was for a Friday night during the holidays. I would not recommend the fish chowder. It was orange, looked like baby food and tasted like a fish flavored paste. Appetizers were just ok. The cheese curds came... More

We have been here many times over the last several years. They are consistently good with their service and quality of food. We have tried many different menu items and they are always great. Thank you for being so consistent. We will be back!!!

The food was really quite good, we(4 of us) all had a different fish fry and all were tasty. The wine was good.The service was excellent, both at the bar and at the table. I... More

I have dined at Norton's for more than 50 years as have my parents and grandparents. It has always been the place we looked forward to visiting when we come to Green Lake. Unfortunately, our most recent evening meal visit did not meet their normal high quality. When we arrived, the hostess was on the phone with who I believe... More

We had a very nice dinner on the deck overlooking the lake. The food was quite delicious and the service great. Everyone was so friendly & welcoming. Great place to celebrate a special occasion.

My husband and I went to Nortons on a recommendation for our last night in Green Lake. Service was great, but the entrees and appetizers are very pricey and not worth what you get. $10 for cheese curds, $23 Fettucine Alfredo topped with four pieces of grilled chicken, $34 for a rib eye with green beans...both our salads (one cherry...

Dined here twice during a recent visit to Green Lake. Both dinners and the service were good. The location right on the lake means great views from the dining room. There's also an outdoor terrace, good spot for a before dinner drink while waiting for your table. And there will probably be a wait as this place is popular.
