3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2014 NEW

we had the steak tenderloin, chard was the vegetable du jour and mashed potatoes. I thought the chard was an odd choice and was just a tiny wilted blob- 2 bites. The mushrooms that we odered were too salty. The dessert- a limeade crepe with vodka cherries was a disappointment. The crepe seemed like it wasn't fresh and the limeade... More

The food was pathetic. Small portion and fish undercooked. Baked potato was brown on the inside. Must have been in the oven for hours. I do have to say, the bar tender was awesome and tried to make up for the horrible meal by giving us a dessert at the bar and an ice cream drink free of charge. Would... More

Very impressed with the food and the set up of the brunch. Great price for what you get. Loved the choice of special entrée with the buffet. Shrimp was wonderful.

We visist Green Lake every year from the St. Louis, Mo area. This was our 4th annual brunch at Grey Rock and our last. We loved going every year because of the great food, beautiful view and fair price. However, this year under new management they changed the menu and raised the price by $5. Now you have to order...

My family and I were excited to dine at the wonderful Grey Rock. We had been coming there for the past three years and the brunch have always been the best. You used to be able to order from a menu if you wanted to but they had a buffet with so much food on it if you did not.... More

We were happy to enjoy cocktails in the lounge on an evening when there was live music. Glen, a guitarist was a great musician and fun vocalist, and much fun to add to the atmosphere of people enjoying the night out! It was nice background music. We had some wonderful drinks and enjoyed our time conversing amongst ourselves, the bartender... More

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

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.
