Nice People, Good Food

My wife heard they had a shrimp scampi pizza so we went one night to give it a try. The place is bar, nice but nothing fancy. The staff and other patrons were very friendly. The pizza was very good- shrimp, cheese and garlic. They have a good beer selection and my wife found a nice chardonnay... read more

Moved back to Williams Bay and never realized what I missed before. We enjoy going at lease twice a week and it never disappoints. We enjoy the staff; the food and the music they play. Don't miss out on the appetizers - especially the Calamari. Their smoked meats they do now are full of flavor and the meatloaf they have... More

We went to Harpoon Willies to get away from touristy Lake Geneva. In the past, the burgers, sandwiches, and service have been excellent. For years, It's always been a favorite place. Sadly, not this time. Despite a small crowd (yes, the Packers were playing) it took awhile for the waitress to come to our table, and even longer for our... More

Just a cozy bar serving excellent food. Good service. They do have a screened porch for more table dining in the warmer months. Just a comfortable place.

We ate lunch here when we couldn't get into Pier 290. What good karma that was! The place is busy as both a bar and eatery. The atmosphere is genuine--no huffy hostesses, efficient waitstaff and patrons wanting to have a good time while watching the Green Bay Packers on big screens. We shared the daily special--triple sliders with a different... More

Stopped by for an early lunch in a visit to the Lake Gen area and boy were we surprised, not only was the staff really friendly and accomodating to our every need the food was top class too. Definitely a must return for dinner

The outside is unassuming but worth the drive and dine. They have a smokehouse for their meats; ribs, pork beef. They didn't have ribs when we were there but my wife had a smoked pulled pork sandwich and I had the smoked beef brisket sandwich. We also had an appetizer of calamari which was very lightly breaded and perfectly fried.... More

We had a very tasty meal at Harpoon Willies and would go back for another. After passing through a very crowded bar that looked like fun (without the kids), we ate in a nice, screened-in porch area with some fire pit tables overlooking the lake. Beautiful setting! Great service. No kids menu, but plenty of kid friendly menu items like... More

All six of our party had great lunches here. This long-established bar-restaurant is conviently located on the corner, and across from the beach. It has great boat/fishing themed decor, and we had very good service. this was only my second or third time here over several years. We don't get to be regulars, but the experiencce has been great each... More
