We have been here numerous times over the years; most recently to meet family for a fish fry on a Friday night. In addition to brunch and dinner, we've also been to a number of banquets. Therein lies the problem...it can be very difficult to find a parking spot. They are willing to give large parties separate checks, which is... More

Went here on a Saturday night in December, had reservations for around 20 people--table was ready, they were able to give us separate checks, which I thought was nice. Service was good, no screw ups, given that many people I was surprised. The place was full. Prices were in the high teens to high twenties, depending on what you ordered,... More

I was there with a party for a Wedding reception in their hall on Oct 17th. The guests had a choice of chicken cordon bleu or what seemed to be a excellent NY strip steak. We also enjoyed the bread stick basket and a very well freshly prepared salad with a choice 3 dressings (french - which is what I... More

It was raining and windy on arrival, a drive up entrance would have been nice for my wife. We had the nightly special (Mexican food). Taco bells food is tastier. The hostess and wait staff was very attentive. No management seen.

Our weeknight meal of salmon and steak was very good. The atmosphere was unusual as it is a completely remodeled barn. The decor is elegant rustic. The staff was very good and the food was great. We ate in the bar area which had TV's to watch the football game. It had a nice fireplace and warm decor. The formal... More

Great, attentive service, the fish was very good. Nice portion size. Nice atmosphere for dating. The only thing was there was no entrance off the highway. You have to enter from a side road leading in to a subdivision. The locals seem to know how to get there though, it was packed!

There are not a lot of choices in this area on Sunday nights for a good steak. We decided we didn't want to pay $35 for steak with no side dishes at one of the upscale Lake Geneva resort steak houses so decided on Cotton Exchange. Their New York Strip was wonderful and the price was bearable. Plus it came... More

Every time I visit from Texas, we have the Friday Fish Fry. Awesome. Don't mind the long wait at times. Will wait for this amazing Fish Fry.
