    Three of us enjoyed your Sun. brunch last week. Everything was hot and well presented. We were so pleased not to have to stand in line for our choices! Tasted food have never before enjoyed, namely lox, etc. The buildings and surrounding areas are beautiful and certainly an experience we plan to enjoy again!

    we were there for a Sunday brunch at 1 p.m.. Those in the party who ordered from the breakfast menu had positive things to say about Their meals. But for those of us who ordered brunch the meats such as the bacon, sausages were overcooked. However the omelette Island was very good.

We had the following meals and everyone seemed to enjoy theim: Wednesday special, Walleye Almondine, Sauer Braten, Prime Rib, and Wiener Schnitzel a'la Holstein.

    I had the wiener schnitzel and unfortunately the food was between luke warm and cool. The veggies were very cool, the spatzle and veal were both luke warm. I was disappointed to pay the price we did for this meal and have the food be luke warm. I did have the raspberry mouse cup and that was excellent. I know that I could have sent the food back but when you are with friends that isn't always a comfortable situation.

    We (3 couples) were celebrating our wedding anniversaries. When I made the reservation I requested a table overlooking the lake and we were seated per my request. Food was delicious and our server was very helpful and friendly. They demonstrated why the Golden Mast is the best restaurant on Okauchee!

    Everything exceeded our expectations. Drinks, food, service and ambiance were excellent. Lake view from the bar and dining room was gorgeous. Artichoke-spinach dip was yummy. Rack of lamb was very flavorful and done just right. My wife's Filet and crab legs were also very good. Wait staff was very attentive and served us well. They acknowledged my wife's birthday with a free dessert and sang happy birthday.

    The restaurant is lovely, the view is breathtaking. Skip the French onion soup, there is almost no flavor, just blah broth with cheese on top. The crab legs were great!, good size not those tiny legs. And for all you can eat more than a great value! The steak was good a little over cooked. The schaum torte was outstanding but, the crème' Brule did not have that wonderful crunching caramelized sugar top. Overall we will go back, more hits than misses.

    Sunday Brunch was, as always, delightful, delectable, and divine! The architecture and ambience, lake views, service and menu choices are incredible. Each time I've brunched at Weissgerber's Golden Mast, I've been pleased. I continue to visit with family, friends, and a variety of social groups. I repeatedly recommend this venue. Everybody leaves satisfied and insists on returning. Brunch is served elegantly and in a relaxed manner. Champagne, juice, and coffee are included. The feast (except for omelets and dessert) is served family style. The blintzes, New York Strip, and shrimp are my favorites. Desserts are fresh and numerous. Bananas Foster and Cherries Jubilee are prepared by the dessert chef while you watch. Spectacular!

    I had heard great things about Sunday brunch and was excited to try it for myself. The atmosphere was very nice and the outdoor seating was lovely. The service was also really nice. But the reason you go out for a meal is to enjoy the food and it just fell flat. Nothing tasted fresh or homemade. I think it would have been worth saving the money and just making half of the items at home instead. While I loved the ambiance and the lake setting, the quality and taste of the food was enough to ensure I will not be coming back.

    waitress was a bit pushy. It is served family style so you have to reorder what you want,thru the waitress. After two times of bringing small portions she was not letting us get a word in edge wise to reorder and was speaking over us pushing the desserts.

    Last Sunday our girls' group celebrated birthdays at Weissgerber's Golden Mast. From the start we were provided with attentive service. Shortly after being seated we were served champagne before the family-style feast began. Muffins, croissants, fresh fruit, bagels and lox were only the beginning. Eggs, sausages, and bacon followed, as did large, tasty shrimp, prime rib, and other tender meats. A well-stocked omelet station led to an exquisite dessert table which offered tortes, cookies, creme brûlée, and even fancy made-to-order flambes. All this (and more) was affordably priced. We had a great time and have photos to prove it. We will be back for brunch and dinner too.

    My wife and I found this place when her workplace hosted their residency graduation in their banquette hall. A large, open room with lots of light and beautiful architecture and decorations. There was a terrace overlooking the lake. Since then, we have been back multiple times for brunch and dinner. The food has always lived up to or surpassed expectations, but do not skip desert. Golden Mast has the best desert table - often (maybe always?) included with brunch. The dining area is just as beautiful as the banquette hall with stained glass windows, elaborate woodwork, and huge windows overlooking the lake.

    We celebrated fathers day at a tough time because our grandfather was recently placed in a physical rehab facility and therefore could not join us. Family really enjoyed (and needed) the relaxing setting on the patio overlooking the lake. Food was great. It took all of our minds off of some of the stress we're facing.

    We've eaten here before, but not for a Father's Day Buffet. Food was OK, mostly the usual Sysco type food done with class. So if you're looking for an adventure in culinary delight, this isn't the venue. If you would like to sit and look at the water while eating with decent food, you will be pleased. I recommend that you make sure not to be seated in the bar area for your meal. It is very noisey and hot.

    The food was very good but the food could have been warmer when it got to our table. There was orders for rare prime rib and both were too rare. They didn't look like they had even been put on the grill and browned on the outside. It took quite a long time to get our main meal.

    We came for our 23rd Anniversary because it has always been great previously. Do NOT use on-line website to make reservation! Requested a window table for 6pm - 3 open tables, but people were seated 15 minutes to 1/2 hr after us. We were told none available. Guess no one reads the special requests box. However, the Wienerschnitzel was out of this world, as usual! All food was great. Service was miserable. Waitress had to other 9 & 7 person tables versus 2 of us. They were well taken care of while we waited 12 minutes for our drinks. Other tables received theirs just before us, but sat down 5-10 minutes after us. 9 person table was eating their desserts as we were finishing our main courses. Obviously, group tables, larger tips! Sad!!
