“Yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

I found the restaurant when searching online for gluten free menus. It looked nice in writing, but was much better than expected in person.

Being cheese lovers from the east coast, we started off with the Wisconsin cheese platter, it was great. We both had salads that were creative and tasted winderf. For dinner one of us had calamari (it was phenomenal) and the other had the filet (he said it was very good but not the best he had). The filet came with asparagus and mashed potatoes. We split the panna cotta for desert--don't skip the panna cotta, it is amazing.

We were thrilled to find a restaurant that had numerous gluten free options, and staff who were very knowledgeable about their food and didn't hesitate to get our many questions about cooking methods answered. To top it off, the staff was customer focused, efficient and extremely friendly.

The only semi-negative thing I can say it that it was loud. The ceiling looks like painted tin, the floor is hardwood, and the walls are solid, so sound just bounces. It wasn't unpleasant, just a bit loud.

We wish we were here longer so we could enjoy another wonderful meal.

“You won't be disappointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

We had a wonderful, scenic table right at a window alcove in which to enjoy a beautiful night. We started with generous sized cocktails. We ordered the Wisconsin cheese plate as an appetizer. It had a wonderful array of local cheeses; blue, Brie, cheddar and a smoked Gouda(?). Served with grapes and baguettes. Following several cocktails, we then ordered the spaghetti bolognaise which even had bologna in it. Very flavorful. A nice restaurant within short walking distance of both the Osthoff resort and Siebkins and several other smaller places to stay on Elkhart Lake. Our server was very attentive without being pesty. We'll be back!

I ate at this restaurant with my parents tonight. We were fortunate enough to be seated right away. Our waitress was very nice and made us laugh so it was very enjoyable. We got our appetizers (skinny fries and grilled broccoli) very quickly, and they were both delicious. You get huge portions for the appetizers and they aren't very expensive. Our entree took a little longer than we would have liked, but it was a busy night so we were just happy we got a seat right away. The waitress misheard my dad's order, and when he told her she was very apologetic and offered to fix it. He was happy with what he got as long as he wasn't charged for the more expensive one that he originally ordered so everything was good there. I have to say I was surprised at how small the portion was for the price, but we all enjoyed our food. The plates were a lot bigger than the food they put on them so I think that made the portions seem smaller. Our waitress gave us a free dessert to make up for her error which was also excellent. All in all, this is a nice place to go for fine dining.

“Two very nice dinners here!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

They seemed a bit understaffed for two busy nights, but the food was very good! Try to get the front dining room, "back dining room" on the second night had us squeezed between the kitchen and an open garbage can near the wait station. Blech. They were very accommodating to make a pasta dish without egg for me, and my husband enjoyed his meal of pork shoulder on our second night! Very limited kids menu (no burgers?), but fun set-up that includes a salad or fruit plate, entree and ice cream sandwich for dessert.

“Another excellent restaurant in Elkhart Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

The Paddock was another surprise. It is right next door to Lake Street and is every bit as good as its neighbor. We went there with friends and new friends twice and enjoyed almost everything on the menu. Excellent service, wines and drinks as well. What's not to like?
