Little Place Worth Stopping At

Met some old friends on a Thursday night for cocktails and dinner. Drinks were good, barstaff were helpful and friendly.

First thought was when we walked in the hostess was sitting at the bar taking up 2 stools rolling silverware, that is potential income you are NEVER going to get. Roll silverware some where else. She got up to seat us only after the bartender asked if we were dining. It gets worse, the server was horrible, checked on us... More

I would not recommend this restaurant. The location is nice but the food is terrible and the service isn't much better. Prices too high for what they serve.

Great food and service. Sundays, always ordered the walleye and eggs. Never had a bad meal there whether it was breakfast, lunch or dinner. Great view of lake and sunsets. Can be noisy and crowded at times but order a drink and sit on the patio. You can also eat on the patio if weather permits.

We went here the other night with another couple. The restaurant itself is rather dated. The view of the lake outside is nice. However, when we were there the water smell was not great. The menu was varied enough that we were all able to find a choice that satisfied us. I had the shrimp dinner. It was ok. The... More

This restaurant is on the water which is always a plus with outdoor seating. Service was excellent, but they were out of two entrees and had to send one of our entrees back to be rewarmed, as the vegetables and rice were barely warm. We also had salmon and prime rib, which was good. We would give them another chance.

This restaurant has the best walleye. On Sunday they have walleye and eggs which does'nt sound appealing but it is great along with their hashbrowns.

This typical Wisconsin restaurant has beautiful lake views and service. Great breakfast and fish fry. They also have some decent drink specials. Very friendly service and decent prices. If you like Walleye you will enjoy theirs.

I visited The Beach House with my husband and kids. There isn't a whole lot for young kids to do, but older kids might enjoy walking out onto the pier and looking around. The restaurant is small and usually busy, but service is fast! They have a pretty good selection on their menu and Friday's fish selection was great! Lake... More

We stopped here for breakfast. It was very busy, but we were able to get seating. Service was fast and accurate. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was diner food, but very good. For how good the food was the price was even better. We had 2 full meals and also a blood marry, and it was... More
