The view and lounge were beautiful, but the dining experience was an extreme disappointment. We waited for our last night in Green Lake to dine at Grey Rock and had so been looking forward to it. Our drink in the lounge was very good which only heightened our excitement. However once seated we felt rushed and our waiter was inexperienced... More

We have gone to the Heidel House for many, many years and have never missed the opportunity to dine at Grey Rock. The view of Green Lake is lovely and mesmerizing, the food and the service is outstanding. As many times as we've been there, we have never been disappointed in either the food or the service. Looking forward to... More

The piano bar is great with Angel, but don't waste your money on Grey Rock dining...not worth it. The food quality was fair and service of wait staff was rude and lacking experience.

We dined at this location, due to other ratings and it was located at our Resort (Heidel House). We were promptly seated and had a view of the lake/sunset. The service was very good. We asked to share an entree (mushroom) as an appetizer, but we were told that they couldn't, the salads were very good, but the entree were... More

I have eaten here twice. The first time was just okay, we ate in the dining room downstairs and found the food adequate. For the price, my expectations may have helped with that. This time however, my mother and I split the Fritto Appetizer and it was delicious. Cooked perfect as was our dinner. We shared the portabella stuffed with... More

My husband and I went to Grey Rock for our Anniversary in February and attended the Chef's Tasting Special. Bartender at upstairs bar was excellent and our pre and post dinner drink experience was lovely. Our reservations were for 7p.m., we were not seated until 740, which would not have been a problem except when we got downstairs there were... More

We had a wonderful Chef's special for February with friends. A great treat with two other couples. Each of the 4 courses of dinner had a complimentary wine or beer recommended by the chef. The wait staff is simply excellent. We had a great view of Big Green Lake which is lovely in every season.

We so enjoyed the tunes and drinks at the Grey Rock that we need to tell everyone!! Bruce was at the piano and he was absolutely fabulous. Drinks were also delicious and beautifully served. The swanky ambience at this spot is beyond belief.

Looking for a romantic dinner with a scenic view, Grey Rock is it. Upon arriving to Grey Rock we chose to have a few cocktails in the lounge. Very intimate seating around the fireplace provided the prefect ambiance. Seated at our table with nearly floor to ceiling windows provided a beautiful view of Green Lake in all it's fall colors....
