“Yummy Stuff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

My husband and I ate here on a Sunday while touring Lake Winnebago. The restaurant is small and cozy, half dining room and half bar. There is also a large outdoor area with tables. It was a beautiful, sunny day and we had a lovely, unobstructed view of the lake from our table inside. The Packers were playing and the locals were gathered around the bar cheering. The waitress was attentive and polite and we did not have to wait long for the food. My husband ordered the beer battered fried cod and was quite pleased with it. I ordered the beer battered fried lobster... It was wonderful! If I can't find this at home I'll have to make a trip all the way back to Wisconsin just to get it. With the great food, picture-perfect view and the "cheeseheads" to entertain us, Wendt's on the Lake was a happy experience.

“Filling!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Apps were yummy. Perch was yummy. Everything was deep fried, but if that's what you like then it's perfect! Lots of food for the money and servers very friendly.

“Deep Fried Lobster!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

I guess this restaurant is known for it's fried Perch but I had to try the deep fried lobster and it was delicious. I've never had it deep fried before but I would definitely order it again! Prime Rib was also on the menu for Saturday night the other three folks in our party ordered that. It was tender and juicy. The twice baked potatoes were good but could have been a bit hotter. The total bill for 4 people (plus beverages) was $88 and we thought it was a bargain. The restaurant has limited seating and can get very busy but we had a reservation.

“Great restaurant on the lake.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

WE got there around 5:00 pm. We were seated right away, but it started getting busy.
service was good and the staff very friendly. The only downfall is they do not accept credit cards.

“Super busy... super good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Great Friday Fish Fry! The service is inconsistent, but generally friendly. Fun place to see the big Sturgeon weighed during Spearing season in February! Very accommodating and casual atmosphere for fishermen, snowmobilers, and boaters. The harbor is generally very busy, and unforuately it has a waiting line :(
