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

food = good bar food, although locals rate their steaks and dinners high! We loved being able to canoe cross the lake from our cabin, rent a jet ski, and then sit up on the viewing deck (in our boating clothes) lingering over a staggered lunch as members of our party took turns taking the jet ski out for some...

Hi! Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. We are glad you enjoyed your visit. We are definitely one of a kind on Lake Delton with our lake front volleyball court. We plan on opening our tiki bar next summer, so please come back to enjoy music and a drink lake front. More

I don't know why people go on vacation and go to a normal restaurant. This is on the lake and has good bar-type food. Great place to go that you probably can't go to at home.

We use to go to Port Vista on a regular basis when we stayed at Aloha Beach. The food was amazing and they had a great deck to eat and enjoy looking over the lake. But, for the last several years, they have had a very large group of people that took over the Bar/Grill and we no longer felt... More

Hi- Thank you for you reply, we appreciate the feedback. We are sorry that you were bothered by the large crowds in years past. Our establishment is not very large, so it is hard for us to accommodate very large groups (30 or more) and we have made this our policy to not do so. Please come and see us... More
