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

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
