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 stopped per recommendation to check out the Happy Hour Specials and we enjoyed our visit very much! Bernie the bartender was entertaining and fun! The views from the bar were really peaceful - we relaxed and enjoyed our visit very much!

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).

We were at the Grey Rock for an outdoor wedding for 200+ plus people. The background view of the lake was simply stunning. Music speakers were great. White chairs for sitting were fine too. Would have been helpful if they would have put wedding signs in the ground with directions saying this way for wedding so and so. Was a... More

The prices and amount of food received are not in line. I ordered the Trio, which is advertised as three appetizers for a meal. I received 1 scallop, 2 medium sized shrimp, and a small bowl of maybe 6 mushrooms. The scallop was delightful, and I am sad I only received one. The shrimp were tough, unflavored, and dry. The...
