Excellent food, service, and atmosphere! Salmon was wonderful and tasty. Sat outside and it was beautiful! Would highly recommend this restaurant!

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

Great atmosphere. Beautiful lakeside restaurant located downtown Oconomowoc. We have been customers for 20 years and it is our favorite place whenever we are in town. Cozy lounge, great food, and the outside lakefront patio in summer can't be beat. If you want "fine dining" this isn't it, but if you like casual lakeside dining with great food, give it... More

My husband and I met my brother and sister-in-law at Spinnaker's for a Friday fish fry. After reading some reviews we weren't sure what to expect. We all had the combo fish and shrimp fry. Three chose to have potato pancakes with the dinner and one had the german potato salad. Everything was excellent. In addition the restaurant was clean... More

I've never had a bad meal here but then again I've never had an excellent meal either. It's always been good with a nice view and atmosphere. Service has always been good, too.

Spinnakers has a lot of potential with it's location, but the quality of the food is average and the choices are uninspired. Had the grouper which was surprisingly good . But I think butter was literally poured on it as it left the kitchen - that seemed to be true of the dishes my dinner partners ordered as well. Iceberg... More

We had reservations for Sat afternoon and sat out on the enclosed deck over looking the lake. We found the staff to be very attentive, fast on the pickup, and appreciative of suggestions. We shared an appetizer, then both had the prime rib, ordered to different doneness, and split a piece of key lime pie. The artichoke dip was slightly... More

Oconomowoc has quite a few large, expensive houses and even the small houses appear to have been newly painted and well maintained. So, it looks as if the community could support an upscale restaurant. However, we have spent several days in the area, trying diverse restaurants and we have not found a restaurant that stands out as having especially good... More

Not sure why all the negative comments,we've always had excellent food and the service as well. Have noticed a decline in customers ,usually have gone on a Sat. night and the place is pretty much empty, with it being in prime area on the lake, a lot of negative comments must have gotten around. We have tried a variety of... More
