Lovely Setting for a Cocktail

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!

Stopped in here on a Tuesday night. It was pretty dead, and that was just fine. I had no trouble getting a table by the window. My waitress Carol was very pleasant and greeted me promptly. I ordered the special, cheese tortellini in pesto sauce with shrimp. I had the roasted tomato soup as a starter. The soup had great... More

Nothing fancy, about the place...but the food is very, very good. The walleye is the best in town. Friendly staff. I have eaten there for many years and the quality is consistent.

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. For some reason (and it appears other recent reviewers agree) it seems to have gone down-hill. The menu was very limited... More

Came to relax and grab a bite to eat. Meet some nice folks at the bar & angel made the evening comfortable as I was dining alone. She made me feel welcome and others at the bar were helped to feel the same. The only down side was the happy hour apetizers, I know they are free food but the... More

Food - average, wait time - too long, attention to service - not really there, skill of servers - poor. Just not professional and food had zero finesse

My husband and I dined at Grey Rock for dinner over the weekend. The restaurant had 4-5 other tables dining when we arrived at 7pm - this should have been our first sign of how bad the place was, especially considering even the bar was empty. We had a glass of wine in the bar... It was fine, albeit the... More

Five of us had dinner here after reading the great reviews. We were disappointed. The food was fair. We ordered the BLT Salads and there was no dressing on them. The pork chop was over cooked. The scallops bland and the boneless chicken breast was not boneless. Extremely expensive for the mediocre service and poor food

A group of us met at Greg Rock to catch up and relax. Though it was a Friday and no inside live music, the view and our bartender Angel was all that was needed to make our visit special.
