Good outside view

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... read 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

They have by far the best fish fry in the madison area. If you like fried fish that does not have a heavy coating on it and is not greasy, this is the place for you. If you want an awesome breakfast, try their walleye and eggs. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

My son frequents this place after hockey and said nobody has ever had a meal they didn't like there. He always orders the walleye and eggs which is served all day/everyday. I had a French Dip sandwich.The walleye was big and cooked just right. My French Dip was tender and loaded with cheese. It was actually one of the best... More

If the GPS wouldn't have gotten me there last evening, there isn't anything that stood out to invite me here. It seems like a local hangout from days gone by. Which a lot of times can fool you into missing some of the best food - if you judge a book (restaurant) by it's cover. Even after pulling into the... More

First off, you need to know that McFarland has some really weird, ridiculous restrictions on serving alcohol outdoors. So, in order to be able to serve alcohol outside to please its patrons, the Beach House had to put a huge fence around the portion of the dining area connected to the bar. It's strange, but it's not their fault. The... More
