Today was the second time my husband and I visited this restaurant. We were visiting the Boat Show in Pewaukee. Last year we had such bad service we thought we would never go back. The restaurwnt is right across the street from The Boat Show so we thought we would give it a send chance, we sat outside which was... More

My wife's step mother used to eat and drink here all of the time a few years ago when she lived in Pewaukee. She is friends with the owner and brings us here a few times each year. It's a fantastic little place with excellent food and those summer time drinks you just can't resist! Grab a margarita and a... More

I gauge Mexican places on whether prices are fair: for this place, meh. Chips and salsa free? No Guac is expensive. Slightly rude workers Most of the dishes don't even offer rice and beans as a side.... That's customary. So overall not happy, probably won't return. Ill go to chocolate factory next door. Location is good but basically a little... More

The seasoned chips and guacamole were really good! Tacos were good as well. There were so many people at this restaurant (especially outside) so I was glad we were able to get an spot.

The view is spectacular... right on the beach of Pewaukee Lake. The food is decent. But... the tables are ridiculously cramped, even off season. The servers do the best they can, but it still ends up being lacking and inexperienced (asking if I need a box while there's still a fork in my hand and I'm still chewing?). Mostly I... More

Though snug, the outdoor seating lends the diners a relaxed environment to partake of tacos, burritos, beer, margaritas, etc...delicioso!!! If you're wary, try"Taco Tuesday's" as we did. You will not be disappointed!

Seesters has absolutely THE BEST fish fry I have ever tasted!!! Tasty, not greasy, and ample portions. My husband and I normally share a portion of chips and guacamole then share a fish fry. Perfect portions for us. The best fish fry around!!

Tiny interior with tiny McDonald's type seating. If you like that this is for you. I found the menu to be very limited and the Mexican food average.

Dine outdoors on a warms summer day and you may forget where you really are. The beach across the street, music playing, and smells and flavors will take you on a quick trip without resetting your time zone. Pleasant service and reasonable prices round out a pleasant dining experience. Chips and salsa can be ordered but are not a free... More
