We have been to the Grandview Restaurant here several times in the past, usually to enjoy the Sunday brunch. After a recent renovation, the brunch menu is no longer available. Instead, there are a number of individual breakfast and lunch items on the menu. While the ambiance and the view are still very attractive, our group in general found the... More

The Geneva Inn offers a breathe-taking view of the Lake while offering a cozy feel within the walls of this quaint "little" inn. The Restaurant at the Geneva Inn opens up that beautiful view while receiving excellent service, hand-crafted cocktails, a thoughtful wine list and delicious cuisine. It was a great experience from cocktail to dessert. Juan made some awesome... More

The setting, the building and the lake itself are a great place for a return visit with our friends from Milwaukee. We all had something different, the presentation and the food was lovely. Our server was a charmer and had good ideas for ordering the daily offerings. If you want a relaxing, peaceful experience this is the place for you.

Due to the cost of rooms, it was prohibitive to stay at the Inn, however we did attend the morning after wedding brunch. The view right over the lake was amazing, the food was yummy, and the service was quite good. Given the opportunity, we would visit and eat there again.

Outstanding food with a gorgeous view of the lake. We have eaten here several times and have never had a bad meal. Our server Joe was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wines that would pair well with what we had. This time I had the duck which was the best I've ever had, a simple preparation but... More

Very disappointing menu choices and poor service. One waiter almost slid the sandwich into our laps and he had no idea who had ordered what. The sandwich was greasy and the fries not at all crisp. The waitress would not bring the dessert menu and tried to get us to order dessert before everyone had even finished. What a change... More

Replacing the flowery tea room decor with sleek and simple decor was a great move. Unobstructed view was spectacular. Strange that bussers left unused place settings on all tables. As it turned out this was helpful for us when my partner dropped his fork---waitress took it but didn't bother to replace. Signature hamburger was gussied up with house made tomato... More

We arrived by boat Sunday evening. The weather was beautiful and the lake gorgeous. We were seated at a table right near the window. The service was outstanding. We asked several questions regarding the menu selections and the waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. My husband had the seafood chowder and I had the buratta with heirloom tomatoes. Both were excellent.... More

When we entered the restaurant, the hostess had told us the establishment had just undergone $3M worth of renovations and it's WORTH it!! My husband, an electrician, noted that they put can lights close to ceiling fans, giving some lighting a strobe-like effect - but really, if you weren't in the industry you never would have noticed. The food was... More
