The service is hard to beat. The food, on a scale of 1 - 5 is a 4-1/2. It's not the best I've ever had, but it's damn good. If I lived closer, I'd go more often. And the view is beautiful! Prices are very reasonable and portions are generous.

This place has you covered no matter what kind of dining atmosphere you're looking for! The upper level has a bar room adjacent to a fine dining atmosphere with a lake view. The lower level has an informal bar with tables for casual dining which also leads you to the outdoor bar level for drinks and appetizers and that section... More

The Waterfront has a great dining room, but during the summer, it's nice to enjoy the patio on the shore of Browns Lake. There was live music while we dined on a Sunday evening that added to the very pleasant atmosphere. It was a perfect volume so we could carry on a conversation while listening to the music. The food... More

LOVED it! Wished we could have sat outside, but patio isn't open until Memorial Day weekend or afterward. Gorgeous view overlooking the lake, great food, fun bar. Will return so we can try other things on the menu. Would recommend. Heard they have music Friday and Saturday nights and on Sunday afternoons on the patio.

Consistence food and view of the lake to enjoy. Eating upstairs is fine but the patio downstairs also has a great view and better vibe. Nice fire bit and live music occasionally.

This was recommended to us by locals. I expected much more in quality. Service was good I had almond crusted Walleye. It had a maple flavor which I did not like. The side was a scalloped potato casserole. It was not hot and heavy on what I thought to be Allspice. The other vegetable served was very forgettable Very disappointing... More

The Waterfront was recommended by a member of the hotel staff. It was a pleasant experience. The restaurant overlooks the lake so the view was very nice. The selection was broad and all the food was well prepared. The blackened salman was to dark for my taste but my companion thought it was great.

Love this restaurant! Can't wait for summer to sit out on the patio and enjoy great waterfront dining. Great food and great service. Excellent crispy thin crust pizza. Love the fresh salads and delicious sandwiches. Everything with candied bacon is delicious. If it doesn't come with candied bacon ask them to add it. Friday fish fries are so well attended... More
