On the plus side, the view from here can't be beat and you're eating in a restaurant designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, which is a perfect way to end a tour of Taliesin. It is located in the visitor center and the tables by the windows are best. Our waitress June was very nice, unfortunately some of the food wasn't... More

Perfect place to have lunch after our tour. Great views; went during the week so it was busy but serene. Prices are very reasonable and food is really good . . . definitely top notch ingredients. Great service! No reason to drive anywhere else for lunch after your tour.

It's hard to know from the outside that this is a restaurant, but go in! We really liked the design and layout of the facility. Every table has a nice view, but the best are adjacent to the windows and closer to the entry as these have the best unobstructed view of the river and sunsets. Our service was excellent... More

I know that the view isn't everything but THE VIEW from this place is just stunning - almost any time of year. It's located in the Taliesin Visitor Center and there's just a little sign outside that says "cafe" so is easy to miss and I can never seem to find any promotional info. about it - it has changed...

A small quaint restaurant that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright over looking the beautiful Wisconsin River. I order the sirloin it was excellent. The house side salad is topped of with their homemade lemon vinaigrette which was yummy! Stop by and enjoy wonderful food served by pleasant servers. Dress is casual.

This is a NICE place to dine out in Spring Green. Very good steak, nice wine, beautiful view of the river. Plan accordingly for slow service, though!

For our annual Friends Weekend (3 couples) in Spring Green for the American Players Theater, we usually try to enjoy one night out at Riverview Terrace. The last 4-5 years have been excellent, but unfortunately we could tell right away that the restaurant was under new management. The menu shrunk by at least half, and our favorite walleye was not...

We ate at this wonderful restaurant nearby Taliesin and American Players Theater prior to attending a show at APT. It is located at one end of the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center, which is a beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright prairie-style building on Hwy C near Taliesin. The restaurant overlooks the Wisconsin River and the view from the restaurant is quite... More

We arrived promptly for out 7:30 reservation. The first thing that we noticed was a strong musty odor upon entering the restaurant, as if we ever entering someone's basement. We stood at the "Please Wait to be Seated" sign for a full 10 minutes without anyone so much as acknowledging our presence. Even though the place was practically empty, the... More

We heard that local foodies had opened it this spring after years of so-so corporate management. They source locally and the heritage pork tenderloin was THE best pork I've had in my life and I'm an old man with tons of restaurant food consumed. The walleye was also delicious. The beef carpaccio appetizer should be shared, more than you want... More
