See review of Heidel house to see more detail. Bar service seemed slow, food was less than stellar (although my husband didn't mind it). Not sure about kids menu but considering adult (regular menu) options I wouldn't see MY kids being pleased dining here.

We stopped here for supper as we saw online that it was Tiki Tuesday. The male server who seated us - did not leave us with menus, did not say a word about "Tiki Tuesday" - no mention of specials - nothing - just put us at a table. Eventually our server came over - her name was Katrina -... More

Menu was rather limited but the chef made us entrees that we saw on their full listed menu (from online).

Great view of the Mississippi. I have several place I wanted to eat but being a Monday most were closed. We checked this place out and the food was delicious. My husband had the cheese curd burger and said it was amazing.

I wasn't feeling so hot when we went to dinner but I wasn't impressed. I got a burger which was fine but nothing special and I wasn't thrilled with the service.

Situated overlooking the lake with a deck in open air, this restaurant offers the perfect spot for lunch, dinner, or an evening gathering with others. A fire pit in the center of the open area makes for perfect atmosphere. Inside a pool table is available for guests as well. Food was delicious sandwiches.

We ordered food to come to our room. We had some coupons for free appetizers and free drinks. We were not impressed with the choices or the food, and didn't use all of the coupons. The nachos were covered over with nacho cheese, and not real cheese. The fish sandwich had three very small pieces on it. The restaurant has... More

The 'Pub" has a cafeteria kind of look. Not very warm of cozy. The pool table was not present anymore, too bad since that is a nice way to kill a relaxing evening. The burger was dry and the ceasar salad was the worst I have ever eaten. I am not that difficult but the dressing was very sour and... More
