Supper Club on Lake Como

Mars is an old fashioned supper club on the shores of Lake Como. Simple, reasonably priced supper club fare just a few minutes west of Lake Geneva. The food is relatively ordinary but the proprietors are friendly and it is not as pricey or crowded as downtown Lake Geneva.

This is a hidden little gem right on the shores of Lake Como. It is one of our favorite places to go. There is a good selection of food on the menu and it is reasonably priced. They specialize in their Ribs, and they do have daily specials with seafood as well. We like going for dinner and and the... More

Have been here a few times for lunch and dinner. The building is an old resort but has character. Food is good and prices fair. Kind of a homey and friendly "cheers" atmosphere. Don't know why the negative reviews. I think some comments expect the ritz for a cheap price. If they want the ritz go downtown Lake Geneva to... More

Had pretty dull ribs and chicken that must have come from a frozen bag at a discount store. The wine was just a bit better. Not cheap for cheap food. If I go again, it will be just to have a beer and look at the lake. At least there's something positive going for the place. I do appreciate that... More

I will never go back to Mars for lunch or dinner. Food was completely overpriced for boxed chicken and ribs that had been sitting too long. Dry. Awful. Never again.

The setting was nice, service was great. Food was terrible. I wanted to try another fish fry and found out it was not all you can eat and they served 2 tiny pieces of fish that were dry and no flavor. The potato pancakes were frozen style hash brown patties. The person I was with had grilled chicken sandwich that... More

If you are hanging around in the Lake Geneva area - do not miss this classic dinner club nestled up to Lake Como! If you stop in on the weekend early - you will see a good number of locals hanging out at the bar enjoying excellent cocktails and really good consistent food! Happy hour is always a great time...

Mars was recommended by a friend who lives in the area. If not for that I never would have known Mars was there and it would have remained a secret! It is a small older establishment but as soon as you walk in you feel at home and you been a patron for years. We were met at the door... More

The food was good and great water views from the deck or dining area. We enjoyed the ribs and entertainment.
