We had been here before but thought we would try it out for a Badger game. It was a blast! They had drink specials , good bar food, free giveaways. Even though the place was packed the service was great. Loved our visit.

This was our first visit to Curly's last Friday. The atmosphere was inviting and were quickly waited on for our beverages and food order. Our selections of a perch and baked cod dinner were promptly served - hot and ready to be eaten!! Both were excellent - came with cole slaw, marble bread and choice of potato. They have specials...

Went here for the pizza based on a recommendation. It's a very local's kind of place. We grabbed a seat at the bar and got a feeling that this is definitely where all the locals hang. It took a few minutes to settle in, a bit uncomfortable at first. I felt like a fish out of water. We started a... More

When family is in town Curly's is the place where we eat. Great view of the lake, food is always very good, and the staff is great. You really can't go wrong.

This restaurant and full bar is clearly a local favorite with friends meeting up all evening. It was busy on a Saturday night but we got a table for 2 is about 10 minutes during peak dinner. There was no outside seating, just for smoking and lake gazing. They are known for burgers and did not have a bean burger... More

I visited in late fall so maybe I just didn't get the full effect of the water front. This is a typical sports bar with TVs and decent pub food. Lots of those in Wisc but I guess waterfront counts for a little extra.

The place has an OK feel to it. It's better with a big crowd. The bartenders are nice and mix a generous drink. Bar food. It's OK!

This is a clean, well designed bar/restaurant with an enjoyable atmosphere and simple delicious menu. A great place to go with a business associate for lunch especially if it is a casual meeting or after spending time on the lake or golfing. Also a great place to take a date or go with friends for lunch or dinner. You can... More

We went to Curly's after not being there for a year. Their food had gone down hill and we just quit going there. We decided to give it a chance and went to have pizza. I ordered a mixed drink. When it came, I said it was not made right and could I have some more cranberry juice. Well, when... More
