I went with my husband for a long weekend and we had dinner here one night. The wait for a table outside was roughly 15 minutes but it was well worth it. The service was second to none. Our server explained that the menu inside differed from that of outside but the quality was the same. We were not misled.... More

We ate outside and had a great view of ....traffic. Not a pleasant atmosphere and the nice waiter told us we could not be served glasses of water?? Didn't make sense! We got the perch sandwich and fries. Fries were good but sandwich had two tiny pieces of perch on it. Not worth the price.

Hi Mary, We're sorry you were disappointed with the outdoor seating area. Unfortunately, there's not much we can do about the traffic driving by, but the views of the Lake are usually pretty enjoyable. As we strive to provide the best service on our patio, we had to make some changes in water service. We will share your thoughts with... More

I really loved stopping into Popeye's in the summer - it's a great location and has outdoor seating in the summer. However, their prices are ridiculous for nothing more than average food. The decor is in need of a refresher, and the bathrooms also need a facelift. Our server was very good, but just not worth the price.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the decor and we will most definitely pass that along to management. We've added an outdoor dining venue this year and will continue to make improvements as time goes on. We hope to see you at Popeye's again soon! More

We had family visiting from Texas and wanted them to see beautiful Lake Geneva. So against my better judgment, we went back to Popeye's only because of its on-the-water location. Each of us ordered something different, and none of us enjoyed our food. At all. Nobody ate more than a few bites. We all ordered dessert just to get the... More

We stopped for dinner on a Wednesday evening. We were seated immediately and greeted promptly by our server. Ordered a stone sour - they didn't have the flavor I asked for, so had to settle. We tried the lobster bisque and that was absolutely delicious! Went downhill from there. We ordered the Lake Perch dinner and the fried shrimp dinner.... More

During a recent 2 day visit to Lake Geneva, a friend and I ate at Popeye's twice. Both meals were delicious and filling. The barbequed meat in the outside tent had drawn us in and didn't disappoint us. We especially enjoyed the beautiful lake view while eating. It is interesting to note that the outside restaurant has a separate menu... More

We loved their slow-roasted pulled lamb and pulled pork. Very tender. Good selection of beer. Friendly staff.
