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

The Chef has a unique talent for different sauces with steaks, fish & past dishes. The crab legs are done just right!

After a review from TA we opted to try Jannsen's & glad we did! After a short wait on a busy Sunday morning, we were seated. Eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles & biscuits/gravy. Also had roast chicken-in a wine sauce with rice or salmon. $ was reasonable and servers were super nice. We will go back.

If you're looking for top of the line food with great service all with a view of the lake Janssen's won't disappoint. I've been many times and they continue to impress. The best cheesecake I've ever had! Great job once again Tim and Beth.

My husband and I played golf for 12 days at Fairfield Bay. We ate at Janssen's every day they were open! The food is fabulous, very reasonable, with excellent service! The Sunday brunch had a wide variety - all of it delicious!!

We ate at Janssen's twice during our week at Fairfield Bay. The Sunday brunch was very good ($14). Portions were good too. Janssen's also serves alcohol, which is a big deal, because most don't (dry county).

A little bit of a drive from where we were staying but worth it. I had the beef tenderloin. Nice seared outside and pink inside. Fresh mashed potatoes from red potatoes. Ask for table by the window to see the lake. Crowded on weekends.

My wife and I went for a nice dinner. We weren't disappointed. The prices may seem high compared to other places, but the portions are huge. Well worth what I paid for it! The staff were very friendly.
