we found the chef to be very rude......isn't that too bad?.....our waitress was excellent.....we dined at the brunch.....there was a nice piece of ham....and a wonderful piece of roast beef.....when we would ask the chef for a slice.....he would give us a child's portion.....why? he had a tremendous amount of meat in front of him....there was NO excuse for this.....

he cooked us both a mediocre omelet......we were just really disappointed in his style......

atmosphere is very nice.....and very clean......just need a chef with a happier attitude!!

“Relaxing, family friendly elegance”
Reviewed July 20, 2010

Enjoyed excellent food at this hidden gem. We had three couples with 8 small children between us and were looking for a place we could enjoy an adult meal while still deal with the kids. The staff here were so accomodating! They have a very cheap kids menu (though it is lite on the veggies) and an excellent gourmet adult selection. Service wonderful. We accidently met the chef in the parking lot and he was so kind.
The resort is older, but still has charm and a beautiful view of the lake from the dining room. You can walk out and take a look while the food is coming. About 15 minutes from lake geneva and worth the drive for a better lake view, food and service. Our meal for four came to $75 with tip.

“Outstanding Buffets - Great Lakefront Location”
Reviewed December 20, 2008

My wife and I have lived in the area for over 15 years and the Frontier Restaurant at Lake Lawn Resort has always been our favorite place to have a fancy buffet - they feature seafood on Fridays, prime rib on Saturdays and bruch on Sundays and holidays. The restaurant also has a solid regular menu and it's always available but in my opinion, although they're not cheap, the buffets offer the best value. The Chef doesn't take any shortcuts and the food is first rate - from the soups and salads to the desserts. The restaurant is inside the resort and has a great view of the lake through a wall of windows that line the space. The restaurant and adjoining cocktail lounge have recently been renovated.
