In general the place had a weird feel to it even though the view was great. Outside seating may have been a better choice. A couple came in and sat at a table near us and got up and left. I wish we would have done the same. We didn't get what we asked for and was told they took... More

While vacationing last week in Green Lake, we had a very pleasant experience at the Boathouse Pub at the Heidel House. It was a lovely evening, and they readily accommodated our large party on the patio overlooking Green Lake. Everyone from the youngest grandchild to grandma and grandpa enjoyed their meal. Lots of good choices for under $10.

Just had lunch. My turkey bacon sandwich came without the turkey (I think there was also supposed to be avacodo on it). My husbands fries looked like they were barely cooked-soggy not crispy. While the waitress took my sandwich back and they put on some turkey,it was unimpressive for the price. Wouldn't bothet trying again.

I ate here for lunch while staying at the Heidle Resort. The service was attentive. I was able to dine outside on the patio and had a nice view of Green Lake. I ordered a salad. While nothing special, it was a tasty salad with crisp greens. If staying at the resort, I would eat here again.

Inside is dark; outside, lakeside, is pretty. Food was average and service slow. Had lunch and dinner there and wouldn't recommend either as anything special.

The food was okay but it was very overpriced: $20 for a beer and a sandwich. The bar tender was very courteous. They didn't have a chef available and I had to wait 20 minutes for one to come from a different part of the hotel.

The bartender named Mark was RUDE!!!!! He could not handle busy bar tactfully. The food was good and the menu was nice.

Large beer selection, always ice-cold, quick service, good food. We balanced our burgers and fries with the spinach and fruit salad, which was excellent.

Lots of deep fried items. The restaurant smells of old cooking oil. The service is slow, and seems to be inexperienced. I would expect better food from a resort property.

I will say that the location right on the lake is superb, and that makes up for a few shortcomings. I can also highly recommend the fried cheese curds, which were insanely delicious, and the tap root beer, which was also fantastic. The rest of the experience was pretty average. Our server was a little flaky, which got frustrating, and... More
