We ate outside, very nice! I had the Best Burger I can remember in a long time! It even had Cheese Curds and Bacon on it! I'd go back just for that!

Generous portions and good flavor. We had the nacho appetizer overflowing with toppings, BBQ sliders and pulled pork grilled cheese with chocolate martinis. Also a fun, boating atmosphere overlooking Green Lake.

The food was wonderful and the service was speedy and attentive, but I was disappointed with the ambiance. The rest of the resort is so interesting, but the pub is somewhat plain.

The food was plentiful, very reasonably priced and very good. I would highly reccommend eating here if a person stays at the Heidel House. The service was very quick and the waitresses are very attendant.

Service was good. Don't recommend the Nachos. Globs of cheese with soggy chips. Hardly any fixings. You can eat outside. No mosquitos but a spider issue. We ate their twice. Once inside and once outside. Relaxing atmosphere and nice music. Great view of Lake outside.

The picture shows how the restaurant looks, no customers. The food was disgusting . Grilled roast beef on rye was old pot roast on whole wheat toast, gross.

Fantastic food and great salad bar and friendly staff. The atmosphere is older but very nice. The food is outstanding and like the soup salad and bread with dinner. Great supper club.
