As friends we have visited here many times over the years for group gatherings and small romantic evenings. Yes, the facility was dated but the service and the meal was always excellent. Now the facility is upgraded to a nice modern interior but the experience lacks the pizzazz to make us want to return. Gone are the white tablecloths. Gone... More

We stayed at the inn and had an anniversary dinner that we ate at the restaurant with our two small kids. The portions are small compared to other places in lake Geneva. The trout I ordered came with a smattering of potatoes. We ordered 2 risotto with extra shrimps and a linguini also. Without alcohol, and two desserts on the... More

My husband and I have been regular patrons at the Geneva Inn and the Grandview Restaurant for the past forty-five years. Our recent breakfast in the newly remodeled facility was less than overwhelming. About the only thing that remained worth the time and price was the always spectacular view of the lake. My husband's Geneva Inn breakfast arrived cold, and... More

The view from the restaurant did not make up for the food. One of the gentlemen in our party ordered the pork chop for $24.00 and that's what he got: a pork chop. Another ordered the bouillabaisse for $24.00 and the portion was the size of a small plate order. On the other hand, the risotto was delicious and the... More

Our family had dinner at the newly remodeled Geneva Inn restaurant tonight in Lake Geneva. It has been a few years since we were here. The service and atmosphere was good, but our entrees were sparse and over priced. Two of us had salmon, a bit undercooked, over an under cooked grain and 4 green beans. My husband had the... More

Although we did not stay at The Geneva Inn during our recent trip to Lake Geneva, WI, we did stop there for lunch after a friend recommended it. They have a lovely, newly remodeled restaurant with amazing views of the lake. My daughter and I had the short rib panini and truffle fries which were wonderful. The server was very... More

I've been coming to this restaurant for many many years, and have always enjoyed it very much. But this visit greeted us with a new decor and a new menu. Sad to say, it was hugely disappointing. The menu was very limited and the food was only mediocre. Please give me back my old favorite…

The restaurant has been remodeled. It is now cold and modern. The warmth and charm of years past is gone. I had a burger with brie cheese and caramelized onions and my husband had a grilled cheese sandwich with pear and brie cheese and caramelized onions. He thought his sandwich was very good, although at the bottom of his side... More

Was anxious to see the remodel, and I liked it - lovely views of the lake and a very comfortable bar area perfect for drinks and conversation. Our group had the burger, the chicken sandwich and the caesar salad - all delicious with large portions and attractive presentations. The french fries were excellent - crispy with a wonderful aioli. The... More
