Get here early we arrived at 5-30 on Saturday evening and still had a 45 minute wait. We eventually got a table and ordered a couple of glasses of wine,if you order a bottle and don't finish it they will brown bag it for you to take home. We ordered the Ribeye and fried chicken and both were excellent,really wished... More

This place is truly one of the best I've ever been to. Everything is fresh, staff is friendly and brunch is amazing. Along with brunch, they had crawfish etouffee, red beans, shrimp creole, fresh veggies and trout. The salad bar is to die for too. I've never had such a salad as I did from Janssen's Lakefront. Keep up the... More

Great place. There is something great about being on the water all day, docking your boat,throwing in flip flops and a t-shirt, and strolling up the hill for a great steak! Great menu with lots of options for the whole family. Great patio. God service. Just a neat experience to get food this good right off the dock. Get there... More

Went to the Sunday buffet after church...big crowd, but they seated us promptly. Salad bar had enough of the usual toppings, not a huge selection, but it's not the main event. The hot buffet featured a brunchy offering of eggs, bacon, quiche, hash browns, etc, all of which were okay, but the best thing on my plate was their chicken... More

We had no expectations when we arrived other than we had heard the food was real good. It was very crowded and the food was average. The service was OK but not great. It may have been because they were crowded. Just from conversations it can get quite loud. You can get there by road or water on Greers Ferry... More

Great tasting, upper-scale food, but noisy---bad acoustics in the place. Views from some tables face the lake. Has its own boat dock...so you can boat here for lunch or dinner. Open only Thursday- Sunday brunch. FABULOUS desserts!

We have dined at Janssen's may times over the years and have consistently had a great meal. Breakfast, lunch or dinner are all superb. Steaks are always excellent & one of my favorites is the salmon, always done to perfection. Be sure to ask about the daily specials. Their Sunday brunch buffet is particularly good with the chef at the... More

We have a cabin on the lake and we eat at Janssens every time we are there! The most wonderful steaks, fresh fish, crab legs and fresh made cheese cakes and cakes(5 layers) to die for! Beware you may have to wait but it is worth it. Enjoy the view and have a drink!

We took our two boys, had a 20 minute wait, which used a texting app (kinda cool), but totally worth the wait! The menu was diverse with different options of fish and some shrimp. The sweet tea was amazing and salad bar was really good. We had the Wham Bam Shrimp as an appetizer which was delicious! Our entrees were... More
