Our party of 3 visited on a Wednesday night - 9/4/13. We did not make reservations and arrived shortly before 6PM. Upon our arrival, there was no hostess at the hostess stand and 2 wait staff. The dining room was not overly busy. We had one of the wait staff pass us on his way to bar and he mumbled that somebody would be with us. We waited a good 5 minutes before we were seated by a waitress. We ordered cocktails and it took 10 minutes for the waitress to get our drinks. Drinks were not the best for the prices they charge. I ordered a Bacardi coke with a lime and I had to ask again for the lime after she brought out the drink. She never returned with the lime. We all ordered walleye, and it was good. We were given an apology for the delay of our food by what I thought was the return of a hostess (but I think she was the front desk person as she didn't stay at the hostess stand very long and was back at the front desk of the hotel). The so called hostess person stayed to help out a bit as there was a party of 6 that came in. But, I noticed from that party that a couple of the ladies had appeared to go up to the bar to get their own cocktails. And, I watched another table where our waitress mixed up their check, and that took awhile to get straightened out. I'm not sure if it was an off night or what happened. We have been going to Northern Wisconsin every summer for eons and this has always been one of the highlights of our trips. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case this year. The waitress wasn't very outgoing and telling us she would be back with what we ordered 'shortly' didn't help matters. And, we always look forward to getting coins to throw in the fountain on the way out. It was disappointing to find out the waitress hadn't given us any coins. We still enjoyed the setting and seeing the two deer wander over to the grassy area was an extra treat. Just wish the service would have been more up to par.
