Great Tapas Style Meal!

My boyfriend and I had three options at the Baker House. Large portions and great options around dinner time. We had the french onion dip with homemade chips that were excellent. The cheese and chocolate fondue were also great!

Fantastic view. Fun decor. Food just purports to be something way better than it is. Good cheese plate. Bisque was bad. Just salty broth.

Well, it's a beautiful house. That is without question. The concept is very unusual.......apps and funny hats. The appetizers are barely average. Nothing to remember. Drinks are ok. They give you a choice of a goofy hat to wear during your stay. That's it. I mean, really? I remember when this mansion was a fine dinning establishment. It was so... More

Excellent food in a renovated Victorian mansion on Lake Geneva. There is a sunset toast & anyone with a special occasion is asked to be part of that. Their menu had changed, but offered a wide variety of options. On the small plates, I chose crab cakes. There wasn't much more than crab there - excellent, from someone who knows... More

We stayed at the sister property, the Maxwell Mansion. When we called to make a reservation, the Maxwell Mansion informed us that their sister property two blocks away had a full restaurant and that is where we could get our meals. The first morning, we walked to the Baker House and the property was all locked up (no breakfast). We... More

Absolutely loved the brunch and I drank about a bottle of champagne by myself! Service was great and food was delicious. There was not a bad thing in that brunch buffet. I've also been to dinner when we toasted the sunset and that was also great. One of my favorite places in Lake Geneva!

We really enjoyed brunch. There were 4 of us in our party, 2 adults & 2 kids and there was variety for everyone. The house offers a great setting and everyone enjoyed trying on the different hats. The service was fantastic. Our server (Stephanie, I think) checked on us many times and made sure our drinks were full. The boys... More

This restaurant is all about 1920s, elegantly designed. Imagine dining and you are encourage to wear your fancy hat. If you don't own one, they have about a hundred for you to choose from. Food is great and you can actually tour the whole establishment. You must reserve early, the place is always booked.

The Baker House never disappoints. We were early for our reservation and asked to be seated in the bar instead. No problem. We had a three hour meal, fondue, apps, entrees, wine, and fondue again. It appeared the bar manager was swamped but she handled it with ease. It was a good meal, great ambiance, with fabulous cocktails. A can't... More
