Good food

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... read more

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

The food is always great here. No need for salt and pepper. I had the kitchen sink burger and my wife the steak, well I had some of the steak too. The food is soooo good! Well worth the 5 minute drive from the touristy places. Monika our server was such a pleasure and quite funny too. Monika made suggestions... More

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
