So, on Saturday 9/13 this happened. Their website states specifically, "Reservations taken Sunday-Thursday." When the four of us arrived at 7:15, we were promptly asked if we had reservations. We explained we had checked the site. "We do after Labor Day." Frustration on our part. Shrugs, sighs and eye-rolls on the part of the hostess. We were told it would... More

The restaurant has very good ambiance with a great view of the lake. The artichoke dip was very cheesy and filling. We preferred that it had would have contained seafood, crab or shrimp. The walleye was flaky and very good.

I can't not even begin to express how disappointed i was in our visit. Terrible terrible experience. Bartender was rude, food was cold, and our waitress was unavailable. Apparently her cell phone was more important then her guest. Will not be returning, you couldn't pay me enough.

Norton's of Green Lake is by far our favorite spot to dine in Green Lake WI. Food and service are great! George and Robin do a wonderful job in providing an upscale restaurant and bar on the water where you can dock up if you're a boater. Always an enjoyable experience. The Walleye Almandine and Norton Burger are my favorites.... More

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
