“The best of Onalaska”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Ambiance, a wonderful view and a chef who cooks great food. Those three things make Seasons by the Lake a great restaurant. For ambiance, you have a dining room with a beamed cathedral ceiling and flickering sconces on exposed stone walls. For a view you have windows and an outdoor patio that overlooks Lake Onalaska. And to the chef, kudos for sea bass over risotto, porcini mushroom ravioli with truffle sauce, cioppino stew and pork chops with a strawberry reduction glaze. Our entrees were delicious!

The restaurant is located in what is considered old downtown Onalaska, away from the chain restaurants by the interstate. It sits perched high across the street from the lake, and offers some wonderful sunsets.

“I haven't been to restaurant with such amazing food in a long time.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

The restaurant was overall amazing. With a view of the sunset, the amazing service and food, and great prices, it was a great place to eat. Everyone in our group of four loved what they ordered, and with a wide variety on the menu we all could get something new that interested us.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

It was nice that they had a varied price range of items. I liked that they had some very, healthy unique offerings in addition to traditional items. We sat on the porch which overlooks the water. It was was a little noisy due to being by the road but worth sitting there for the scenery.

“Good Choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Casual, great view of Mississippi River & MN Bluffs in distance on The Great River Road, Hwy #35. Good food and reasonable prices. Especially recommend: deep fried cheese curds - very nicely done, not over-breaded. Took group of eight there, included two just turned teens & 6 adults. Service was OK, if a bit stuttered between two staff - but worked out. Recommend the Tex-Mex Burger served topped with good guacamole. Dined on the porch on a beautiful summer day. Never got indoors. Bloody Mary was very good with adequate spiciness and a bottle of Tabasco standing nearby for extra heat as needed (needed!). Beer chaser was perfect, honest Wisconsin drink.

“Great menu selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

Good new restaurant in the Onalaska area. A lot of choices on the menu. I had three awesome dishes. Chilean shrimp appetizer. The Cobb salad. And the Seabass entrée. Portions are generous. Service was quick. Food was awesome!. Outdoor seating is a bit noisy with the highway. And tables were a little uneven with the floor surface. I would definitely return to enjoy the rest of the menu. Great for families.
