Decent experience

A very neat atmosphere in a historic former mansion. We had reservations but still had to wait over an hour to be seated due to a rush at 7pm on a Friday night, though the bartender was very friendly and made it a pleasant wait. The food was flavorful and well prepared, though my husband's steak... read more

To Heidel House for birthday weekend celebration. Returned to Grey Rock based on previous excellent experience. Loved the previous chef and this one has produced a great menu as well. Our first night went so well we came back (who does that unless the whole experience is great!). Carol and Joanie were attentive servers. Kudos the chef food was awesome!

The staff, especially Joannie Kiggins, did an amazing job waiting on my agents for our company party. She was very polite and more importantly patient with a group of 15. SHe was the utmost professional. I recommend her highly

Resort boosts about Grey Rock, so we went. Smells very musty! Not what I want to smell when eating. View wouldve been great, if there wasn't wedding guests hanging out in front of windows after a wedding. I asked for them to be moved and staff said they will in a little while. After wedding guests, we got to look... More

The vegetarian options could use a bit more pizazz, but the kids menu was the correct price for the location (although I can't say I recommend bringing kids there), our large group was easily accommodated, and the cocktails were good and strong.

We visited Grey Rock during happy hour and enjoyed discounted drinks, a nice variety of nibbles, a friendly barkeep, and a lovely view. For mid-century architectural buffs this is a fun spot to check out!

My husband and I ate at Grey Rock on July 14 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Over the years we have dined at Grey Rock during our visits to Green Lake and in the past it has been excellent.
