“Plenty of Potential”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

Easily one of the best views of any restaurant in the entire Coulee Region of La Crosse, overlooking in the distance Lake Onalaska and bluffs on the other side that. I was seated in a booth of the newly renovated bar area and that view was perfectly framed in a large scenic window, which leads to a great little outdoor seating area during the non winter seasons. The Caprese salad has always been good here, although it is a very simple salad to make. I have had average to good salmon here in the past, and the French Onion soup this time around was just fine but not wow. This is one of those restaurants that you would love to eventually see the food quality rise to match the view and interior design structure. Service very good.

“Almost Perfect”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

A couple of glitches in our service or this would have been an excellent...party of 17 with reservations at 1 pm on a Saturday. This was party I was throwing and they let me customize the menu. This allowed everyone to order what they wanted and kept my bill under budget. The venue is beautiful and clean. Absolutely recommend. Oh - but I don't recommend the artisan macaroni and cheese. All else was good.

“Trying hard”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

Seriously like this place hey significant improvement over the prior stablished. They have all sorts of nice touches that really add to the experience. But at least this one time the food was okay but for the price not really much of a bargain.

“Fine Dining in Onalaska!”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

We have visited Seasons By The Lake on 3 separate occasions and have found the food & service to both be excellent. The food variety is outstanding with a focus on using the freshest ingredients and a wide variety of seasonings along with methods of food preparation that make the eating experience a real treat! I travel extensively on business both domestically and internationally and found the dining experience to be highly comparable to the finer meals that I have enjoyed during my travels. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Overrated”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Not impressed. They are trying to be an upper class restaurant. Pork chops undercooked. Couple with us done before our meal returned and still not done correctly. In this case in any restaurant a manager or owner should be stepping in. Never saw one. No concessions given. Won't be back.
