It was a busy summer evening, and we had tried a few other places, but wait times were too long, so we went off to Williams Bay, and found this place. It is across the street from the bay, so lake view. Although the interior looked very nice and spacious, too, we chose to sit outside on their patio. This... More

We stopped in here for a drink and apps at the bar on a recent Sat night. It was very busy, and the bartenders were very friendly, and made really nice renditions of the WI- classic brandy old-fashioned for the hubs. I had an excellent standard VT, and we ordered some fried Calamari, which came to the bar so fast... More

Excellent food service and atmosphere. Menu was extensive with reasonable prices for this quality. Not only was calamari awesome but lobster bisque soup one of the best ive devoured in a while. Will go back for sure. Great to get away from the lake geneva options.

Have been here several times and we are never disappointed. Food and servive were excellent. We both had the nightly specials - seabass and a steak. Both were delicious and cooked perfectly. We had oysters rockafeller for an appetizer. It was the best I have ever had!

All around good. The bar service really needs to notch-up but table side it's a nice experience. Don't forget your money.

Have been here several times and have always had good food. They also have a nice wine selection. The pasta is good and they have a couple nice shrimp dishes as well.

We soooo enjoyed our evening meal at Cafe Calamari! I have celiac disease and they offered a gluten free menu. The staff was knowledgeable and my choices were great and delicious. We would definitely plan to dine here again!

Thank Danielle B
