Wonderful food. We had the restaurant special (pork loin) and it was simply delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant. A "saving grace" at the Heidel House which we would not recommend.

We enjoyed a number of delicious cocktails and loved spending time with Bernie. We did not eat in the restaurant because it was booked, but Bernie was such a hoot that it didn't matter. The other patrons were fun, too. Bernie is one of the only good things this resort has going on. If you stay at the resort, make... More

I dined here with some friends on August 27th. The ambience of the dining room overlooking the lake was wonderful. I knew going in that the prices were quite high, but we wanted a nice night out so we tried it. We didn't have appetizers, so I cannot comment on that. I had the Caprese Chicken. It came on a...

My husband loved the Trout special but, now, it's probably off the menu. Do not get the Walleye. Mine was so hard, full of thick batter, don't think it was Panko, I would know the difference. Returned that and had the Scallops, a much better choice. Had the supposed Peach cobbler in a skillet and don't think the peaches were... More

The food was very good. Salad portions had about 10 little leaves and portions were small for the price. Much better for a celebration dinner or special date.

We just dropped in for a drink before dinner and were underwhelmed. The bartender seemed befuddled and overwhelmed even though there were only a few people in the place. The appetizers were unappealing; I'm not even sure what they were...just globs of something. We won't be back.

We were very disappointed in our service and food quality at this restaurant. My daughters chicken fingers were really good. It is not fine dining when you wish you could trade in a filet for chicken fingers! The steak had a huge ribbon of fat and was flavorless. It arrives in the shape of a hockey puck. The salad of...

On my first visit to Green Lake I was fortunate to find Grey Rock. We had a wonderful experience--great food, atmosphere, and service. The brunch combines made-to-order menu items with a buffet. Complimentary mimosas were a nice touch! Look forward to returning on our next visit to the area.

We've had dinner at the Grey Rock several times over the years, and it never disappoints! The food was excellent and the service was great! It's the best steak I've had in a long time (I would say comparable to Murray's in Minneapolis).
