Not what one would expect with such exorbitant prices. When the ordered dishes finally arrived at the table it became immediately obvious why our party of four waited so long. The meals were overcooked and unflattering to the pallet. The only explanation I can offer is that the regular chef must have called in sick. Will not consider to dining... More

Tried this place for the third time hoping it would be better than the first two times. It wasn't. The employees here are incredibly rude. We ordered bloody Mary's to start and I asked for mine with only olives in it. The waitress rolled her eyes and sighed!!!! Then the other two friends with me ordered bloody Mary's and asked... More

the service was ok, but the food was below average - no creativity. don't think the menu has changed in 20 years. the place is for sale, so maybe that accounts for some of this

I love this place. Have been going here for a long time when we vacation in Oconomowoc and this is one of my favs. Awesome seafood atmosphere on the inside, feels like a nice cruise ship. The food is fantastic and the most important part is that they have spotted cow. If you sit in the back you'll get a... More

We dined for lunch (four couples) at a good table overlooking the lake. The service was slow and the food unremarkable. We ordered a broad variety off the menu from salads to meatloaf. There was a general negative consensus among our group regarding the food taste and quality.

Visited with an out of town guest. First time here for all. All of our food was good with nice selection offered. Looking forward to the renovated patio dining opening with new screened in outdoor seating.

We hadn't eaten at Spinnaker's for a while and frankly was shocked at how much the prices had gone up! We waited to be seated for at least 5 minutes and finally had to go into the bar area to ask for someone to seat us. The food was good but not outstanding. Probably would not be our first choice...

Went with a group of 4 of us for their fish fry. Three of us got the fish fry and another family member had their chicken parmesan which she said was really good. We had the fried eggplant as an appetizer and each of us got soup or salad (for $1 more with fish fry) which was good. We also... More
