Liked the service and burgers with cooked onions. They have friendly staff and lake like atmosphere. There were children and adults eating, they came in from the lake. very close to shops and water activities.

My wife and I have made the 50 trip to come here for lunch several times. We enjoy dining on the screened in porch with a view of the lake. The bar area is cool and has a unique décor. The food is always great. My wife dined on the portabella mushroom sandwich and I enjoyed the grilled chicken deluxe... More

This restaurant was packed during the Women's world championship soccer tournament, however, the wait staff found seating for the big group we brought to the place. We had lots of appetizers and free pop corn along with the local beer and other drinks. The wait staff was efficient and fast despite the crowding.

The food and ambiance were great. The prices were reasonable. Sisco was a horrible waiter but it looked like the other waitresses were doing good job.

We walked here from Lake Geneva and just happened by and decided to stop it. Very cute place, our server, Cisco was friendly and very attentive to our needs. We both had sandwiches and the were very yummy! Would definitely come back again!

For a little bar in Williams Bay the food is great! Super fresh and cooked to order, and the menu is not what you would typically find for a bar. If you stop in and Zack is bartending say hi, he's great!
