The Walleye with a light breading, seasoning was absolutely fantastic. (They will bake if you prefer). It was very mild and a generous portion, and even the tartar sauce was delicious. The french fries, coleslaw, all of it so tasty. Blackberry cobbler for the win:)...Sophie was a wonderful waitress.More

My wife and I went to Lazy River Grill last Friday evening based on Tripadvisor reviews. Turned out to be the first time that I’‘ve been disappointed by Tripadvisor reviews. I genuinely feel bad that I can’’t honestly give Lazy River Grill a favorable review,...but the food was totally forgettable. Not bad, just unremarkable in every respect other than overpriced. My wife ordered a steak. I ordered the special: Chicken Oscar (chicken breast with crab cake and hollandaise sauce on top), which the waitress told me was fabulous. To call it average would be generous. Wasn’‘t even warm by the time it was served to me. The best thing about Lazy River Grill is the décor. The location is a neighborhood strip mall. The clientele was predominately a senior crowd - appeared to be locals who prefer not to drive far from home. The people seated at tables nearest to us mostly ordered hamburgers and sandwiches.More

We have been coming to Lazy River for nearly 15 years and rhe quality has remained high. We decided to visit tonight after the Covid dining restrictions were relaxed. Amanda, our waitress, has provided consistent high personal service for years. Our go to meal is...the Shore Dinner which is a fresh water fish breaded in their special breading. It is not deep fried. It comes with a house salad, steamed vegetables and a corn/black bean relish. Their frog legs are tender and not stringy. I highly recommend Lazy River Grill.More

We had a coup so we chose to go to LRG for my wife's birthday last night. We made a reservation in advance because of limited seating due to Covid 19. We were seated immediately with table spacing. Our terrific waitress, Kim, let us know...that they were offering "Festival" specials for either their luscious Walleye or very good alternate "Basa" fish. They cost $15.45 or $13.45 each respectively with their terrific house dressed salad, slaw and potato medley. BTW, we opted for the salad upgrade. Since the festival specials were discounted, we could not use the coup we brought. NP! Kim brought us their cheese and crackers upon request. They made my wife's birthday super by taking and framing a picture of us along with a piece of tasty cheesecake. Thank you so much Lazy River Grill. We'll be back with or without coupons. You made us feel so welcome and filled us up with tasty well prepared foods.More

We returned to LRG for our group's weekly lunch outing, since we all had a taste for fish and used a groupon we had purchased. We were well served by Stacey, all enjoyed our Basa breaded "shore" lunches priced at $10.99 with a side and...find the place comfortable. Note: You need to ask for crackers and cheese spread that is VG. Always an enjoyable experience.More

First visit. Had some gift certificates from a recent charity auction. Interesting decor with fishing gear and other decorations over every inch of the wall. The selection was good. The crab cakes were the best I have had, even in comparison to much more expensive...restaurants and those when I was living in Baltimore. The walleye sandwich was enormous and cooked perfectly. We had a cobbler with extra ice cream for desert which was great. No draft beer, but good bottle selection.More

Nice local restaurant with friendly service. It has been in this location for a number of years and has a solid client base. The menu is not extensive and the decor is getting a little tired, but the food (particularly the walleye) is always good.

Great place to get Good Walleye. The menu is small and simple but it’s all tasty. I miss their apple butter pork chop. They have good burgers too. I like the mushroom Swiss. Everyone was happy with the food.

They don't have a gluten free menu but there are some items on the menu that are gluten free. Don't eat the french fries if you're gluten free.
