Mars is our old friend. We have been coming here for more than 20 years and have eaten more than our share of ribs and fried chicken, washed down with Miller Light drafts. This place never changes and that's a good thing. This is laid back Wisconsin dining at its best- a hangout for locals who keep coming back and... More

Great view! The food was good quality for a more reasonable price. My duck was a little burned, but still good. My husband said his steak was delicious. Service was excellent. It gets very crowded so we were warned to go later. That worked! It was raining so they couldn't seat outside by the beach and very crowded. It was... More

The waitresses and bar staff tried their best to make it a great experience, but the restaurant is poorly run, wouldn't take a reservation even for a large party, and we were all getting very restless by the time we finally got our food an hour after we arrived on a weeknight.

Four of us went to Mars on a Sunday evening. I was hoping it would be less busy than the weekend. We only had to wait a short time. Everything ran at a regular/reasonable pace. Our order was taken in a timely fashion, drinks and dinner were also timely, as was the check. The pace was all normal at our... More

We loved Mars. Beautiful view of Lake Como. Friendly yet professional service. Supper Club retro atmosphere. I even enjoyed the music. All of us enjoyed our food. They make the best Brandy Old Fashions I've ever tasted. We will make it a point to come back next time we visit this area. Those ribs were wonderful.

Went here with friends and had the worst service ever. Apparently the deal is that you don't sit outside because the service is terrible. And you can smoke outside too! Yuck'. I am sure if we had eaten inside it would have been a better experience. The food was good but nothing amazing. Would go back but sit inside.

Treated parents to dinner. Food and views great. Shrimp cocktail was very good. Ribs and chicken wonderful. Salad good. Husband's medium rare steak was cooked medium well but he enjoyed it anyway. Love coming every year.

We went on a Tuesday, so it wasn't as lively as other reviews indicated, but then we didn't have to wait for a table, either. I had the roast duck, which was great. My husband had the ribs and fried chicken combo; not quite as good as their reputation. The waitress was friendly, but not super attentive. Good beer selection... More

A less crowded hidden gem near Lake Geneva is this little place near lake Como. It has an unpretentious feel with a decent kitchen and good bar.
