What a great idea! This hardworking group of individuals runs a small restuarant as a way for students to learn about hosting, serving, cooking and creating. If you enjoy a place where menus change often, you realize the experience can vary as students learn, but you are always in for excitement at a reasonable deal. You will love this! I... More

The atmosphere is elegant and the service is a learning environment. The students do everything from seating, serving, cocktails to cooking. It is neat to be supporting an education while being served a meal in courses.

The food was both beautiful and delicious. The service was excellent. Institute students are the service staff and chefs. The prices are great and the ambiance and view are memorable. The only sad thing is that they're only open three days a week during school. Go online to see their menu for the week and make a reservation. It is... More

The selection of food was very diversified. Not your average brunch items. I enjoyed sampling most of the dishes offered. They were very good. The crêpes were the best I have ever eaten. This is the second year I have partaken of the Bunny Brunch. It is now going to be an event I frequent yearly.

When our non-profit was choosing the menu for our banquet, we stressed that our budget was limited. But Bill Gottsacker and Nate Meinert said "Go ahead and pick the fancy dishes! Our students work 'for free' and love to be challenged." Yes, "Lakeshore' is a college and the 'Institute' is a breeding ground for future Master Chefs. "Culinary" tells you... More

A little tolerance is necessary. These kids are learning. It's a school. But nowhere will you get such gourmet food at such low prices and such an enthusiastic group of people to serve you. You'll be delighted to join in the experience. Not only do you order and eat but you can watch your food being prepared on television screens... More

When in Sheboygan this is a must and unique dining experience. Charming young student chefs prepare and serve your meal. You are presented with a menu of student chef creations and select a three course meal from four courses. You can either watch the presentation through the open kitchen or sit at your table and view the preparation on a... More
