Awesome lobster bisque!

Great German cuisine. The owner definitely takes pride in this restaurant. A nice place for a company lunch, too.

Excellent food and service in the supper club tradition. The music is rat-pack and there's linen tablecloths on the tables; yet the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. Lunches are delicious and specials are featured each day. I had the spinach salad and soup, both were excellent; on another day I had the snapper special with rice and vegetables. Definitely a...

This restaurant has served us well for forty years (with a long intermission of three decades). But the restaurant hasn't changed. It was and is an excellent and reliable place. Especially pleasant old-stkyle Wisconsin fish fry on Fridays. Nothing fancy (if you want that go somewhere else). It is a reasonably priced all you can eat throwback to the Wisconsin... More

Max Meiers has been in Hartland for as long as I can remember. Max passed away many years ago, but the restaurant is still run by his wife and daughter. Although the Swiss decor needs to be updated, the food and service is consistently good. A full menu of favorites. Some, like the fondues are out of the ordinary. Plus... More

We have frequente this venue several times in past three years and have always enjoyed the Friday night fish fry. One of the few places that still offers family style and homemade potato pancakes.

have eaten here off and on for 40+ years since I was a child. the menu seems to be unchanged, and that is ok. Margaret is from Switzerland, so there are some excellent Swiss entrees on the menu. The food is well prepared, and the service good. I agree with the other reviewers that the interior could be updated, but... More

This is a very cozy well established restaurant that my parents frequent. We had a party for about 40 people. The food was exceptional. Panco Pork, Prime Rib, and a chicken dish were right on. Good drinks as well. You get what you pay for here.
