Description: No matter the weather, it’s easy to relax lakeside at The Waterfront on Brown's Lake. Pull up by boat or lounge on our patio when it’s warm -- or stay cozy and enjoy the view from inside in the winter. With daytime specials, seasonal offerings, and holiday menus, we love serving our guests the very best homemade fare year-round -- and from our fish fry to our filet mignon, we’ve got something for everyone in the family, even the little ones with Kid's Day every Monday! Our modern supper club is full of Wisconsin charm and friendly faces.

Another treat in store for you when you visit "The Waterfront" and that is the view. Great views of Browns Lake makes the visit just that much better.

“Don't go hungry...”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We were there on a Friday night (5/24/14) and yes it was a Holiday weekend but that is no excuse for the shoddy service.

Came in and we were told would be about 15 to 20 minutes for a table, not bad, sat at the bar and had a drink, 45 minutes later having seen people come in and be seated before us asked about our table told it would be shortly, another 15 minutes later (having complained to the bartender) he got us a table. Sat at the table for another 15 minutes without a waitress even acknowledging us (a I will be right with you would have been OK, we know they were busy) we left.

Can't comment on the food because we ended up at the local Culvers instead.

Will not be back

“Beautiful view,average food.”
Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

We had heard from numerous people that the view is spectacular, it was breathtaking! I only wish the food had been comparable to the view! The prime rib was too well done thus dry, and while the steaks were OK,there are numerous other places with better steaks to be had for less. The staff tried very hard but their timing was off,we waited 29 minutes for our salads and had barely began eating them when our entrees arrived. Baked potatoes had spent too long under the heat lamps, both of them were lukewarm and dry. I must say when we complained we were offered different sides for our meal and received 10% off our total bill.We will try another visit, as everyone deserves a second chance.

“Substandard at best”
Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

Came in for our anniversary for dinner. The bartender "candy" was extremely rude. Made us feel like we were a nuisance to even bother her for a drink. She made political comments almost the entire time while pouring herself cocktails. The food was mediocre at best and the service was something out of flo's diner. I will never return.

“Nice view”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is situated on the lake. It has great views. You can eat downstairs outside, there's up pizza parlor type area also on the lower level, or upstairs in the main dining room or bar. We opted on a Saturday night, to eat in the main dining room. We were seated near a huge window with great view of the lake.

Saturday night's dinner special is prime red. So we both ordered it. We were very glad that we ordered it rare as it came medium, medium rare. Not exactly what I was expecting. But still it was very delicious.

Somewhere I read, that this was a typical Wisconsin supper club. Well, not really. It has been remodeled and does not have that charm.
