Quality Issue

We have eaten at this restaurant many times over the years and the quality of the meals always met our expectations. This time, I ordered the filet mignon and found it tougher than it should have been. I do not order that steak a lot but most of the time I can cut the steak with a fork. This... read more

I thought it funny that the "light" menu had options with cream sauces! My lamb chops from the light menu were nicely prepared, but under-seasoned, which surprised me as most restaurants over-salt their food. The salad was insipid, and the ham vinaigrette dressing novel but not particularly tasty. It would be nice if the menu had some more interesting options.... More

Quiet with a beautiful view of the frozen lake. Warm and inviting on a bitterly cold afternoon. Our friendly and attentive waitress "Jackie" recommended the Cobb salad which was delicious with the grilled shrimp. My husband enjoyed the Beef Tournedos. We'll definitely recommend this place to our friends. We had fun touring the "Winter Fest" snow sculptures in Riviera Park... More

Yet another great meal at Grandview. We changed our reservations, no problem, since we were running late from the dancing horses show.

I have eaten many times at the Grandview and the price keeps rising but not the quality of the food which is average for the high cost. Had lunch yesterday and now you are charged to have rolls with your soup or salad, $3.00 for three and a scoop of butter. I don't understand how "nickel and diming" your customers... More

Grandview offers a spectacular view of the lake looking northeast across Button's Bay toward the town of Lake Geneva. Although not west facing, sunset is a magical time of evening at the Grandview Restaurant. We always enjoy the scallops and the duck entrees. The food is solid but not as outstanding as the view, however, it is still worth the... More

It was our first time here and we totally love our stay. It's a small place but very well kept. We ate at the restaurant we both had a steak and it was so good! The beautiful view is a plus.

Celebrated on a Saturday night watching it snow outside. A romantic restaurant which was not crowded, piano player in the background, and a table with lake view was offered. A "shrimp martini" appetizer was offered with an odd number of shrimp, but the waitress offered to add an additional one for a small charge so we could split it. The... More
