We have been here twice and we left both times. They actually would just watch us walk out and not ask a word. I eat out a lot and they were not busy during both visits. We just sat there and sat there, then left....More

Had lunch on the "outside" section, over looking the harbor. The lunch menu was significant and the food was very flavorful. The service was excellent.

We were driving by Kenosha and wanted a place near the water. This was the perfect place. I had the salmon tacos, which were great and my husband had the trout trio, which was AWESOME! Service was great!

Got a great burger and craft beer here. Friendly and attentive staff. Nice view of boats. Fun rustic nautical theme going here. Blew off some steam with co-worker over some drinks and dinner. Very affordable. Good for kids and large parties.

Good food and good fun. I went with the bf for trivia night and got a few appetizers and long islands. Food was alright, while service was a little slow and forgetful.

I booked an event for 20 people 2 months in advance and also confirmed the day prior to our visit. Upon arrival, there was no knowledge of my reservation. They did accommodate us, however we waited for 10 minutes while they set up a table....More

The place was not busy, but we waited forever for someone to bring our drinks out, bring our salad/soups out, and when the food finally came, both of the plates of lake perch were cold. It was not impressive at all, the only good thing...More

I had the Perch recently, and yes, little slivers and cold. I was very disappointed.

We were there on a Friday for lunch & they did have it. I can't remember if it was on menu or a special.
