Quiet night, good meal

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... read more

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.

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.

My family and I were here for a Saturday lunch. We were able to sit outside overlooking Lake Como (though street address is Lake Geneva). This is an easy drive for anyone staying on Lake Geneva. The interior is what anyone would expect from a 1960's Wisconsin Supper Club. Outside there is a couple of levels of decking. I got... More

Good burgers in an old place, right on Lake Como. Atmosphere is friendly, classic and a throwback from the past.

The terrace and water view was great. We had a fantastic waitress who really understood food and drinks! While not a wine connoisseur sort of place, they had a couple of my favorites, including J Lohr cab at a reasonable price. I ordered the catch of the day (swordfish), and though it was reasonably priced ($14) it had a fishy... More

You can smell the smoke from old patrons. It is a local bar with a great view of Lake Como. The food is really unreliable.

This place was great. Ribs were BBQ, not smoked. Off the bone with great flavor. Went 2 days in a row, had the ribs both days. once with a baked potato, once with Fries. Minestrone Soup was excellent.

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
