“Best of both worlds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

The Lake Street Cafe has something for everybody. Start on the tavern side for a great selection of beer and spirits. The atmosphere is interesting and lively even in the middle of the day. Return for an evening of evening of superb diners in the dinning room. Everything we ordered was done to perfection. The combinations were creative, without pretense. A must to take in when in Elkhart Lake.

“Interesting menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

I love restaurants that offer something a bit different than the usual fair. There was some of the usual fair, but my grilled salmon served with mussels and bok choi was outstanding. The bar is very casual (you can eat there), but the dining room is more formal. The menus are glued into recycled hard-covered books. You might get a child's book, a gardening book, etc. Our service was very good and might drive the hour back to Elkhart Lake just to take my mother there to eat one of these days.

“Best Meal in Elkhart Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Best meal-have never been dissapointed here, and our group east here every year we visit. Food is excellent, consistent, and delicious! Don't miss the Lobster Bisque-which we all have at every visit!
