Average at best

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

I had a traditional Wisconsin cheese burger that was really good. We ate out on the patio in front of the lake. The food and surroundings were lovely.

Good service and lovely view of the lake. Pub fare was tasty and the homemade chips were addictive. A great spot for a drink before the Escapde yacht cruise.

More calories than you want to know about but this burger is for the diehard burger lover. Big burger topped with smoked turkey and fried cheese curds with a helping of BBQ sauce. The rest of the menu is typical bar food with appetizers, salads, wraps, sandwiches, and burgers.
