“Overrated”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Not impressed. They are trying to be an upper class restaurant. Pork chops undercooked. Couple with us done before our meal returned and still not done correctly. In this case in any restaurant a manager or owner should be stepping in. Never saw one. No concessions given. Won't be back.

“Family reunion group”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Nice view--spacious. Beautiful patio if you are there in warmer weather. We had a group of 20. Service was good except one meal mixup. Our group was generally pleased with the food and the wide menu selection.

“The best of Onalaska”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Ambiance, a wonderful view and a chef who cooks great food. Those three things make Seasons by the Lake a great restaurant. For ambiance, you have a dining room with a beamed cathedral ceiling and flickering sconces on exposed stone walls. For a view you have windows and an outdoor patio that overlooks Lake Onalaska. And to the chef, kudos for sea bass over risotto, porcini mushroom ravioli with truffle sauce, cioppino stew and pork chops with a strawberry reduction glaze. Our entrees were delicious!

The restaurant is located in what is considered old downtown Onalaska, away from the chain restaurants by the interstate. It sits perched high across the street from the lake, and offers some wonderful sunsets.

“I haven't been to restaurant with such amazing food in a long time.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

The restaurant was overall amazing. With a view of the sunset, the amazing service and food, and great prices, it was a great place to eat. Everyone in our group of four loved what they ordered, and with a wide variety on the menu we all could get something new that interested us.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

It was nice that they had a varied price range of items. I liked that they had some very, healthy unique offerings in addition to traditional items. We sat on the porch which overlooks the water. It was was a little noisy due to being by the road but worth sitting there for the scenery.
