Go for a drink and the view.

Lovely views of the lake, good pours on the cocktails. Standard fare for most, but vegetarians beware, the chef is not so willing to be creative for you, and there's only one salad on the menu without meat. A little updating on the menu would be great.

We stopped by for lunch on a hot and humid summer day, but still opted to sit in the back screened patio overlooking the lake for the view. It wasn't crowded, but there were 4 or 5 other tables with patrons on the patio. Our waiter was a young helpful fellow. I had a salad with grilled chicken and hard... More

We have enjoyed having friday night fish fry at Spinnakers over the years. The food quality is good, not great, but a fairly good value for the price. We recently went there again and ran into some additional issues that cause us to re-evaluate our assessment. First, although beyond their control, there is a serious amount of major road work...

As we were doing the walking tour of historic homes, we stopped and visited with a local who gave us this recommendation for dinner. We were very pleased to enjoy a relaxing meal in their screened patio overlooking the lake. My husband enjoys fish and I need a Gluten Free menu and we were not disappointed. We watched the sunset,... More

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.
