Very well laid out restaurant, ample parking, beautiful views over the lake, very friendly staff, seating spacious and the look was very good. We couldn't say the food was poor but didn't match the surroundings. It sounded good on menu but was disappointing on arrival but edible.

The dinner was fine but we left with the thought that we might have missed a better dining experience at one of other dinning establishments. They did decline to do separate checks for our party of four couples which wasn't appreciated.

We were seated promptly and the server was generally very attentive. Our order was taken quickly and the pacing of the meal was great. However, my order of the Cajun Mixed Grill was not up to par-the chicken was overcooked and there was a strange aftertaste. Our server was apologetic and she replaced that entrée with a twelve-ounce cut of... More

I ordered the Pepper Jack Melt that said "medallions of tenderloin with onions and mushrooms". Expecting a small, round cut of tenderloin, I ordered it medium rare. I figured it would have some sauteed onions and mushrooms on it. What I got was like a tenderloin tip stew with small pieces of tenderloin in a highly processed, salty gravy with... More

I went here at 7pm on a Friday for dinner and the restaurant was about 75% full. We were greeted right away by the host, but waited ten minutes before I finally had to go back to the host stand to ask where our server was. After that mishap though, we had great service and our server was genuinely sorry... More

This restaurant was a favorite of my parents. Mom still loves to go whenever I can get her out for lunch. The views are wonderful and the waitstaff are all very sweet to her and accommodating with her walker and making sure her order is done well. I cannot find much on the menu that does not taste flat or... More

I love lakeside dining, and having grown up in Oconomowoc, remember when this was not open to the public. So I was excited when we got another choice for food with a view. Personally I had a great experience and would go again next time I'm in town.

Oh my God, what a bad experience with food, service, management and owners. in all my reviews I have never been this negative. Mothers day, kids taking us out. Not serving regular menu, just "special menu" at a high rate. OK, it happens on holidays. Special menu #1, Salmon, sorry we are out. Two of us ordered ribs, sorry we... More
