My son, his girlfriend & I went here the other night for an early dinner. He had the full sized crunch burger. LOVED it, nice & juicy he said you could tell it was fresh beef not a frozen patty. His only wish was that it came with onion, lettuce, tomato and side condiments (ketchup & mustard) I had the... More

Usually I order the salad trio special and have never been disappointed. I always have enough left for another lunch. I've taken my daughter and grandsons there and they also liked the food and view. It's fresh and tasty and a little different from anywhere else around the area. The view is very pleasant and watching the books coming and... More

A delicious place to enjoy a great Dells meal! Adult Mac and Cheese is yummy! Garlic tots are a great twist on a childhood favorite! Prepare to wait, but it's worth it!

Everything is so fresh! Tried the chef's choice salad of the day.Nutted wild rice with chicken. Unbelieveably delicious! Blueberry bread on the side. Perfect! Moist and wonderful! This place is just terrific summer fare!

The food was not that great. Like one reviewer said, I could hardly find the chicken in the chicken salad. The patio deck was also no big deal...rather small and not the great view as advertised. Don't waste your time.

The baking bread made my mouth water! The place was packed and we waited in a line to order at the counter, but then we were directed to have a seat and be served. Awesome. Fresh deli sandwiches and salads on a warm summer night, watching the boats take off and come in to dock on a quiet secluded patio.... More

I read a rave review for this place on Yelp I think (one of only 2 reviews so I should've known better than to bet on it), and it was terrible. Several of the items we first tried to order were out and I could see the grumpy middle aged lady answering the sweet cashier each time she went back... More

After we thought all hope was lost to find a great dinner in the dells (house of embers was terrible), we found this place. Great food, great view, loved our romanian waitress. Fun atmosphere.
