“Very Nice Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

I was walking from the Osthoff and checking out the town. I am so pleased that I walked into this restaurant. The food was very good, nice atmosphere and great service. If I am ever in town again I will definitely return

“Unexpected pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

This local bar and restaurant does a respectable food business. There is a standard menu, with pizzas, sandwiches, soups, salads, entrees, etc.. This menu includes a very diverse array of salads, soups and sandwiches. The specials sheets add an even greater dimension to an already impressive offering. I had a lobster bisque that would have done any native Mainer proud. Being one, and being a fair cook as well, I can assure you that they know what they're doing in that kitchen.
This is a place to go if you have need of eclectic food offerings. It will always be at the head of my list for Elkhart Lake.

“Awesome soup and salad for lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

The chicken peanut soup was wonderful. They will split their large entrée salads and pair that with a cup of soup for a perfect lunch

“Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is a plain looking storefront that used to be a U.S. Post Office. The inside looks like a bar with tables and games. The food, however is the real surprise. Elk, Pork Cheeks, many varieties of fish, salads, pizzas and more! There were six of us. We all had different meals and all were well prepared, served promptly and not only looked good but tasted great. This is a very unprepossessing place but if you are nearby it is well worth a stop.

“Not horrible, but disappointing.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

To start off on a good note, the elk and scallops were cooked perfectly, the pizza was not very crisp and lacked salt (and I'm not a huge salt user either). The service however was a different story. I specifically asked if we should order everything at the same time b/c I didn't want an overlap. The waitress said not to worry. Our drinks, what we ordered first, came AFTER our app. My main dish came during the app. We had to wait for our check. All in all, if you can get over the service, I'd recommend getting a meat/fish dish as they seem to know know how to cook
those.
