Met another couple on a Tuesday at the Waterfront. The atmosphere was relaxed, yet lively. Service was very good, we took a booth for nearly 2 hours, and we never felt pushed. The menu was very nice, there is something for everyone. Food was prepared...More

This is a good stop and the wings are food, they have a good menu with some good specials. The service is hit an miss but friendly. Sports games they also have good offerings. Worth the stop.

It is on the water but there is a busy street between the restaurant and the lake. With that said, this is still a great spot for a steak or an impressive burger or a unique salad. They run daily drink specials- Sunday night tall...More

The view of the lake was really pretty. The food was delicious but the service was poor. Do not drink the tap water.

Nothing to write home about. The food is average. I wouldn't go out of my way to go back. Service was also average. We were there on a previous occasion and I ordered prime rib. When the waitress served us I asked if I could...More

It’s been awhile since we have been here. I ordered the chicken schnitzel sandwich and I was completely underwhelming. If you want a small chicken tender with a bit of Gouda go for it. My husband’s MKE burger was much better.

We used to really love The Waterfront. The last few times haven’t been that great and we wrote it off due to new ownership. We went today for lunch and the waitress was really nice and accommodating. However, the food was absolutely awful. The minestrone...More

Drove up for a ski weekend. Good variety of food for kids and adults, casual but nice and friendly. Numerous TVs to watch the games, side room with pool and ping pong table and a claw game, pinball. We all enjoyed the food, decent variety...More
