Good Dinner

I had dinner with friends. We had build your own pizza, nachos, pull pork sliders, and a huge burger. We all enjoyed our food and had leftovers to take to our rooms for late night munchies. Love that!

The food is terrible - salad was hot, food was cold. We sat outside and all the tables were dirty, we had to ask them to wipe them off before we could eat- and they were not even busy. Other people that sat down after us asked them to wipe the table also, as they only wiped ours.

Inclement weather forced an inside visit to the Boat House Pub but it looks like a nicer day would even further enhance the experience eating on the terrace right on Green Lake! We had a light lunch but the waitstaff were attentive and pleasant. The food was exceptional!

Thank you for your feedback, Chuck. I am delighted to hear you enjoyed dining in the BoatHouse Pub and would agree that the outside fire pit patio will only enhance the experience. I am hopeful you are able to dine with us again soon to enjoy this! More

VERY accommodating! NICE place and people here. Nice place for a wedding or event. Fire pit outside to sit around at night time. Really a fun time.

The Boat House is nice inside, but also has a patio with gas firepit - great place right by the lakeside. We shared mozzarella sticks (they came with cold sauce which was a neat change of pace), and fish tacos - yummy! Peanut Butter dessert was equally yummy.

My husband and I stayed here for a week and ate here 3 times. The first time was great; it was the night of the Badgers basketball game and the place was packed. We got the last seat in the house. Service was prompt and the food we ordered (the Heidel Burger and a BLT) was great. Drinks were very... More

This place is definitely short staffed (at least it was when I was there Valentine's Day weekend). We ate here several times (and drank) (and played pool) and the same 2 women were working the whole pub each time we came. They were very attentive, friendly, and fun, but they were super busy so we waited for stuff. No big... More

Save your money! This place is a waste of your time and money. The food was bad and the service even worse here. Our waitress informed us we would be waiting on our food due to a party of 30 that walked in and we told her no problem. The party was in another room but the main room was... More
