Excellent food in fun surroundings. You have to like it noisy . Fish fry is my favorite and worth the travel. Sit on the screened in porch and enjoy the lake view.

Stopped because of the WISCO fun run book. Not impressed. People did not even know they were a stop in the book. Not very friendly and seemed quite confused about what they were doing and how to serve patrons. Unless I had a reason to be in the area I would not travel there just for a stop, a drink... More

Just happened to be driving by and saw the sign for breakfast. Wonderful breakfast buffet. Served 8-11 on Saturday and Sunday. Everything was hot and fresh. $15. Includes a coffee bar. Service was outstanding.

Stopped in at Willies on Saturday night. We ate out on patio. Service was prompt. Typical Bar food but some higher end entrees on the menu as well. Reasonably priced both food and cocktails.

Great bar food and atmosphere! The Bloody Mary's are fantastic, too! We go there fairly regularly and love the porch in the warm weather.

Food was average. Long Island ice teas were the bomb. Service was outstanding! Love the screened area. Outside without the bugs.

Willie's has very good food with daily specials(it is connected to Calamari's restaurant). It has a ton of up north nautical atmosphere, and why not?, it's across the street from Lake Geneva with a screened in view of the lake and parks. Oh yea, they have a really good Friday, all day fish fry, with a very large fillet of... More

Very casual place to go for a perfect spring day. Indoor and covered and screened outdoor seating with views of Williams Bay. The food, service and atmosphere are a terrific mix. The smoked ham and Swiss sandwich was a real treat. Really good flavor on a well-chosen bun. The waffle fries were cooked just right. Nothing too fancy but the... More
