Great atmosphere for dining and cocktails in a recently renovated building. Large menu selection and fast service. Overlooks beautiful green lake!

“This hurts”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

The newly remodeled place is ok, but the last two experiences have been disappointing, especially this visit. The menu is typical bar fare, nothing spectacular but with enough variety to meet most needs.
The problem this time was with the kitchen. My wife ordered the Angus beef sandwich and it arrived with the beef cod. She asked the server to send it back, it came back cold again. The shift manager came back and assisted, but it still came back not hot. At that point they had no solution or plan and we just kept it. Even the au jus was cold.
The service was fine they tried to accommodate, but that night the kitchen failed the rest of the team.
The last time the food was so-so. It will take a while for us to try again.

“O'Neil's Worth the Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

We lunched here on Memorial Day following a long hike along Green Lake. The service was good. The food was great. We had a burger special that had on it bacon, blue cheese, and jalapeño peppers. The spice on the fries was good. The only two criticisms- and I had to dig to come up with these - are the décor is a bit cliché, and the waitperson did not ask how we wanted the burger cooked. Overall, an outstanding experience. We shall return!

Great new building with nice outdoor patio. After Melvin's sold to Zorbas a nice restaurant with a larger menu was very welcome!
