“Sometimes Great, Sometimes average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

Dined here for three meals on a recent stay at the Osthoff. Our first experience was almost excellent. The food was good, the server was fantastic. We started out outdoors, but the mosquitoes forced us in. The other two meals were also prepared well and tasty, but on each of these occasions our servers left a lot to be desired. Certainly a good choice for families staying at the Osthoff, but let's hope they can get more consistently good waitstaff.

“Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

We ate there twice and the first meal was so good that we ordered exactly the same thing two nights later. We both had the Walleye Pike and spinach salad!

“Not worth the price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

Stopped in for breakfast our first morning and was surprised by the bad service and quality of food. They seemed understaffed and food took forever to arrive. Pancakes were awful and my kids barely touched them.

“Great sandwiches and room service”

Loved the pork sandwich, and the room service was very prompt and courteous. The desserts were also quite delicious!

“Too pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

Food was good, but too expensive. Service wasn't the greatest. No many options for people watching their diet.
