“Food good, decor dark and outdated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile

Service and food good, ok Prices. Decor very dark and outdated. Ribs are excellent and the specialty here. But basics like hamburgers are well prepared also.

“The worst service ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

Maybe the person who wrote the previous review went to the planet Mars instead of this cafe. The night before we attempted to get in and the seating hostess (hostess is doing her more justice than she deserves) took our name and refused to give us an estimate of how long it might be before we were seated. The cafe was crowded and hot with many people at the bar. We politely asked her to give us a rough idea of how long we were looking at and she refused and appeared indignant that the question was raised. We stayed for a short while, asked again, got nowhere and left.

“Nice joint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

Great ribs! Great service and a cool space. It may not be the newest place and may need updating but I feel it adds to the charm. Got to get the ribs

“Back in Time with a Brandy Olde Fasioned-sweet!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

One of my favorite local Lake geneva local hang outs! Definately try the olde fasioned and enjoy good food at a very reasonable price. You'll feel like you walked into 1972 when you walk in, but a great view and goof food!

“Great view of lake & fairly good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

Hostess staff needs much improvement (have forgotten us waiting for table a number of times). But the waitresses & bartenders are usually friendly and the food is pretty good.....recommend the ribs or butterflied shrimp
