Great place!

Went here recently with another couple and enjoyed it very much. Had a great retro, rustic feel to it but still kept up and warm and welcoming. Food was good. We had burgers and they were good. Fried vegetables not the best but great atmosphere and great voice on tap beer. We'll be back for sure... read more

Ribs, Burgers ,Chops and Chicken are can't miss items at Mars. You will come back again and again for the food and atmosphere. Stunning sunsets and a old time piano bar make this a must stop. Outdoor Music on Saturdays during the summer months....

When you walk into Mars Restaurant, you step back in time to a traditional Wisconsin supper club. They even have a piano bar! Gusts are encouraged to sing along or make requests. Situated right on Como Lake, the views are wonderful. We saw a hot air balloon drift by once. We've eaten here several times. The ribs are great! The... More

Great food in a supper club atmosphere. Great to sit outside on a lovely evening or inside in the winter, watching the ice boats on Lake Como. Good burgers, sandwiches and ribs. Turn off of Rt 50 at Pesches and Mars is at the end of the road on the lake.

What a great find. Will be returning whenever in the area. Had the BBQ ribs and Bloody Mary's which were amazing. An old Wisconsin supper club still slaying it!

We love going to Mars! It's a terrific local place - nothing fancy or stuffy- just good food with a nice view of a lake Como. Really good burgers, nice sized salads, husband LOVES their ribs. On sunny days, it's great to sit outside.

I'm going to give it another try as everyone talks about the ribs. We went on a Friday for the fish and we're not going again for that. No baked potatoes on Fridays....only deep fried everything on Fridays. Ok so we tried the potato pancakes and they were awful...think of hash browns out of a box and then think of... More

My wife and I had read very good reviews of this restaurant and were so excited when we found it open on a Sunday evening and still serving. Little did we realize that even though we walked in ahead of a group of 14, we would be the party that had to wait almost 45 minutes until the larger group... More

Mars Restaurant is a great dining spot off the beaten path in the storied resort country of Lake Geneva, Wis. We have been frequent guests, and we always look forward to our visits. The ribs can't be beat, and other menu items won't disappoint. During our most recent visit, our waiter, Rich, didn't miss a beat when he pulled out... More
