Love Joy Smith at the piano bar (and Wayne Mesmer)! Really enjoyed the ribs, grilled shrimp, pork chops, bratwurst!

This is an old-time Wisconsin restaurant. Don't expect gourmet dining, but do expect good, down-home cooking. We hit the Friday-night crowd. Awesome Walleye! (You're in Wisconsin!) The sides were good. The waitress was delightful! The entertainment provided by Joy (and some of her friends) was truly enjoyable. Joy has been there for 28 summer seasons and plans to return next...

Mars Restaurant offers a predictable menu that provides a hungry diner with a good choice of steak, ribs and the obligatory Friday night Fish Fry, but the real attraction awaits just inside the front door, at the Piano Bar. The entertainment is headlined by the great Joy Smith, a veteran of Chicago's Rush Street golden era days on Fridays and... More

It is right on Lake Como, and has a beautiful sunset view. Service good, food was okay, nothing to say to go back for food, but must go back for sunset. Food a little on the pricey side for what you get. I had shrimp and it was very good. I was there with 7 of my sisters, they charge... More

Tuesday's they do a fried Chicken special that my family loves. The chicken is crispy and delicious! The service is always good here and the view of the water is beautiful. I like that is old Wisconsin style with a piano bar. They also have a nice patio area.

Love their atmosphere, service and food. View of Lake Como is always nice, no matter what season. We go here often.

Wait staff was very friendly. The dining room is small, and needs updating. Prices are good, but found the food to be average.

What else can you say. No signs no website. Located at the end of a road, right on Lake Como. Great burgers! Ask for cheese and you'll get a huge dollop of Merks Cheddar spread. They have a great bar and the place is always packed. It's old school in a good way!

Saturday August 16th, my wife and I headed up to Mar's Resort on Como Lake to see the Tony Ocean show and have some fun. We've been up to Mar's many times and the third time for the Tony Ocean show.. As usual we had a blast. I brought my own folding chairs with me and sat outside, although they... More

I was really hoping to have a nice meal because it's such a pretty view. It was not to be. I will say this, their staff is extremely nice and I liked the supper club ambiance. But that was it. Not a very good bar selection and perhaps a worse beer selection. Wisconsin has great microbrewerys, but they carried only... More
