“Flies buzzing!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Well this restaurant is directly on the shores of a lake so you are gonna get a few insects. That's not unreasonable. What didn't work for me was the lack of screens in doors and windows to protect against this obvious annoyance. I spent more time chasing Wisconsin flies off my burger than I did chewing and this was inside seating. This place is a hot-spot for dancing and all things watery though so if you're young at heart and want some fun this is the place for you. It's a seasonal treat on a hot summer night complete with full bar and ice cream stand next door. Events all summer long. Always a crowded parking lot.

“A great time on the water!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Clear Water Harbor is a staple in The Chain O'Lakes area. Great food, great service and you are on the water. Take the boat tours and have a sandwich followed by ice cream afterwards. Slushies for the kids and adults. It gets very crowded during the summertime, but that's all part of it.

Take a paddlewheel out on the Chain of Lakes and then come back for a great meal and music. Great fish fry. Nice outdoor seating.

“Great party bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Have been coming to the Harbor for many years. Great food, good music and love that they provide boatside service at their dock. They pour a good drink, the beer is always cold & fresh and the service is great. Can be difficult to get a deckside table but that's just the sign of a great place!
