Dinner choices and atmosphere are wonderful, as well as the food quality. Had to wait 15 mins. just to get water, then they wandered back another 10 mins. to take the order. 45 mins. for the food to arrive and even then they got some of the orders wrong.

My husband and I loved this place until it moved into a bigger building. They changed their menu, not only with the food but the prices were raised dramatically! They no longer serve breakfast after 2PM which is the main reason we used to go here. We loved their breakfast items. The wait staff was pretty rude the last time... More

Used my BOGO Entertainment book coupon and had pulled pork and grilled chicken sandwiches with baked potato and fries and everything was delicious! Server was very nice and accommodating. Will be going back soon!

My friend and I went for a sandwich and a beverage. We were seated immediately and the young man who waited on us was quite helpful. The food was excellent and arrived in a timely manner. Even though they were moderately busy we were very pleased with the food and the service.

I've lived in east Troy 2 years now and dine out too much! When I first came to town this place was pretty good. I think they have had difficulty properly staffing the place. My last visit about a month ago I was seated and ordered a special that I believe was a choice of 2 items and included a... More

Not a high end restaurant but above average. We've never been dissapointed with the food or service. Breakfast, lunch or dinner; never had a bad meal or experience.

In Wisconsin tradition is the Friday Fish Fry. This place is fabulous. Five different types of fish. Walleye, Perch, Blue gills, Cod. The better half had the pan fried Bluegills and she was in heaven. I had the breaded perch, also very excellent. Large portions with excellent potatoes pancakes, coleslaw and rye bread. Closed out dinner with an excellent grasshopper... More

Extremely long waiting period. 1 1/2 hours since we ordered until when we got food, and in that time only once were we offered drinks. This was even though our group pre-booked before visiting. Staff still expected us to tip. Most of the time in USA we were happy to tip even though not used to it, but not here.... More

We've had many great meals and family celebrations here in the past but the service has steadily gone down. The Grist Mill burger is still the best we've ever had (with gluten free bun upon request) but it still doesn't make up for a waitstaff that isn't well trained and attentive. The decor is tastefull and relaxing, so all things... More
