View is great! My husband's birthday so he got to pick. Being a northern WI boy, he wanted fish fry. We wound up here and sat on the deck. Basic menu, but everything we had was delicious. Staff was courteous. The view of Lake Delton from the deck is amazing!

Found this place on TripAdvisor and decided to try it out. We waited 5-10 minutes for a table; not a problem, but we were a little confused if anyone was getting a spot ready for us even after we talked to the hostess. We were seated on the deck - nice view of Lake Delton. There was a large party... More

Nice view of Lake Delton. Spin-art dip was ok. Our waitress got our drinks quickly. About half the tables were occupied (4th of July evening.). Our order of 2 spaghettios, 1 grilled cheese, 1 cheeseburger, 1 Reuben took more than 45 minutes. From the deck we could see into the kitchen and watched a parade of folks go in and... More

Very average. If you want extra anything you'll have to pay extra. You do get ONE refill of soda too. Taco salad is huge though.

We had a reservation for 2 at 7:30 tonight. We got there at 7:32 and they had no open tables. We decided to sit at the bar until another table opened up (first mistake ) We ordered an appetizer and then our main courses. I ordered steak medium well, wife got half slab of ribs. We noticed We got appetizer... More

Ate here with my family last night. The food was excellent and the service was impeccable. My steak was perfectly cooked and delicious. Our server was wonderful and made our experience enjoyable. Other servers at other places should take notes from our server, because that was a perfect example of how to serve a table. I would highly recommend this... More

My mom and I ate lunch here last week and thoroughly enjoyed it! We only had appetizers (mini tacos and quesadillas) but they were delicious and enough to fill us up. Our server, Monika, was a lot of fun and really made us feel at home. I would recommend Port Vista if you are looking for a restaurant with affordable... More

We chose this restaurant because it was within walking distance from our hotel. We went back for the view, simple but enjoyable food, and great service. The view from the terrace was very pretty, the food was decent and cheap and my kids really enjoyed it. I don't know why people complain about the food - it's very reasonable both... More

We usually eat here when we go to the dells. Always very good. Except the last time we went, which was summer of 2014. We got steaks and they were so tough that we could barely cut through them, and it couldnt even be chewed. We mentioned it, and they said they had recently changed the people they bought steaks...

While visiting the Dells, I was looking for something special. This place is about at average as they get. Fish was frozen fish tossed into a fryer. All sandwiches come with a bag of chips unless you want to pay extra for fries. My husband had a burger, looked okay and he said it wasn't bad. If you're looking for... More
