“Go Hungry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

My family and I returned to Port Vista after three years and found it hadn't changed much. Which is a good thing. Their claim to fame is their 32oz steak. My wife and I. Oth ordered it and weren't disappointed. The meal comes with the salad bar which was sufficient and a choice of side potato. Be careful when ordering. Add-ins get expensive. We found it funny that the onion and lettuce on our sons burger were added charges that were listed on the bill(25 cents for an onion slice) No biggie. We just found it funny. Portions are huge and the service is friendly. Highly recommend.

“Best food and service in a long time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

After a long day at Noah's Ark waterpark, we went to Port Vista resturant in Wisconsin Dells. It was only a few minutes away but worth the trip. We went after 8 p.m. and the staff was just as friendly and helpful as if it was the beginning of the day. We wanted to sit on the deck to enjoy the lake view so they promptly cleaned a table and sat us immediately. Sheena came by and asked us if we had been helped yet. We told her we had asked for a few minutes to review the menu. She came back in a few and took our order, told us to enjoy the salad bar (which was still fresh at this late hour!), and from there on out service continued to be great with her checking on us a few times to see if we needed anything. The 32 oz steak dinner for two was amazing, cooked and seasoned to perfection, the side of mushrooms and onions were huge (brought out in a soup crock) and the onions were tender yet crisp and so sweet. And all this while enjoying the lake view in moonlight! Would definitely recommend this place to EVERYONE!!

“Good food for the price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

We had the Sirloin for two there and sat out on the deck overlooking Lake Delton. The steak was huge and more than enough for two. It was cooked perfect.This place is a great place to go for food and drink.We have been here a few times and it always good.

“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Excellent lunch on the balcony overlooking the lake. We didn't even know it was there but found it while renting jet-skis. Good pub-grub and kids' menu.
