I go there a lot and the food and service are awesome . They have great daily specials and their soups are amazing. Another nice thing about Port Vista is when you go there in the spring/ summer you get a great view of the lake.

What a beautiful view this place has! The food is ok, service was good. We had the big steak which was cooked properly not a whole lot of flavor but for that size what can you expect! A little salt was all that was needed. The fried shrimp was good. No complaints about the service

We have been going to this resturant for quit awhile now. The prices were not bad. Last weekend we were in the Dells so my husband wanted to go there. My daughter picked up this magazine that showed that the price has gone up a few dollars. When we got to the resturant we noticed that the 24 oz. steak... More

From Colorado we decided to ask around before we got to The Dells about a good Friday night fish fry. Not only was the waitress & bartender rude, they clearly are not happy with their jobs! The fish was CHEWY...yes CHEWY...and the salad bar had ONE dinner roll and mostly empty bowls. Seemed busy in the dining room but we... More

We ate there last night. We waited to get our food for about an hour after ordering. My BF had ribs and shrimp. He said his was good. I ordered Prime rib dinner medium rare. It was cooked more like medium. Served with canned mushrooms, which I complained and she took it off my bill as I didn't eat them.... More

We stopped for dinner on a Sunday during the Packer game. The bartender did not have a waitress and was busy, all tables full. The 32 oz. steak for two was OK. A little tough and served with a mushy baked potato. There were a couple of really foul mouthed drunks at the bar. I was surprised they would still... More

We went on a referral from our "Ducks"driver to eat here. We like to eat at the places that are not chain restaurants so this fit. This was nice because it's on the water & it was a nice night. We were here on Wednesday 8/27 at 7pm. It was not crowded at all but looked like only the bartender... More

We all chose french fries for our potato of choice. We also split an apptrz. of mini tacos. (pass on them... More

If your looking to dine overlooking a lake this place is great, but if your main objective is to eat-Beware! Specifically the steak for 2. So much grissle ran through it that you could hardly cut it. What was more disconcerting was that the waitress asked how our meal was and I told her the steak was extremely tuff. Her... More

This is a hidden gem. Small inside, but plenty of room outside on the deck overlooking the lake. We had the steak and crab for 2. Plenty of leftovers. I imagine it would be tough to cook a 32oz steak so tender and delicious, but they have found a way to do it wonderfully. My son who wasn't interested in... More
