Pier 290 - Year 2The restaurant is lovely and the newer outside dining area is wonderful. Although I miss the small, medium, large plate concept that the restaurant initially opened with, my guest and I split the arugula salad and an order of tenderloin with diver scallops dressed in a potato, cauliflower and apple ragout that was delicious. We each added a reasonably priced glass of wine and were fully satisfied. I am so glad to see that Pier 290 is coming into its stride! Except, now reservations will be even harder to come by!! And being able to arrive by boat is the best! We'll be back very soon.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDominic ZacconeNice job guys!

Those of us seated on one side of the table had a clear view of Lake Geneva, very pretty. The wait staff was extremely attentive and knowledgable. The food very good. My trout was seasoned well and cooked perfectly. Everyone at the table was happy.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNeeds a food fixWould be such a great place to drink & eat apps, but the
App menu is so limited and not impressive.
My short ribs were drowning in some sauce that tasted
like soy sauce. My friends got the special skate and were
both extremely disappointed. Our arugula salads were ok.
The wine was good. The waitress seemed to be very new
to her job and didn't really know about the food.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a treat!Celebrated our daughters high school graduation. Missed our reservation because the ceremony went long. We were still able to enjoy ourselves and listen to great music!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous Lunch!We had lunch at Pier 290 on Saturday, June 1st and it was a memorable experience. The atmosphere is great inside and out and the food was delicious. Our server, Brian, was top notch! This was our first visit, but it will NOT be our last.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful restaurant on Lake GenevaPretty views, great atmosphere, excellent food! The restaurant is full of character and nautical themes. Really fun! Highly recommend!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLadies Night OutA group of five of us (celebrating a couple birthdays) came to Pier 290 on a Monday night and we were running so late for our reservation, having driven in from Chicago. We called to make sure they could still take us and they welcomed us with open arms. Instead of feeling rushed, we felt like celebrities and had the best service we've had in quite some time. The food was amazing and between all of us, we tried almost the whole menu. Amazing oysters, great martinis, fantastic surf and turf!
We were only in town for about 24 hours, but managed to come back the next day to sit outside and enjoy a few bottles of wine. Any place worth revisiting the next day, must be pretty spectacular. Hopefully we can still get in next time we're in town!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEvening with friendsWe dined with our oldest and dearest friends. Our lives are very busy and we do not get together often. This was a perfect evening out. After eating we went outside and sat and talk around one of your fire pits and watched kids play in the sand pit. It was such a lovely eveing and we will surley return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPier 290 was a real treat,Pier 290 was a real treat, very nicely laid out restaurant with gorgeous views of the bay. The food was perfectly prepared, cooked & presented. The service was very good, a tad bit slow (in comparison to some other restaurants in the area) but they were very crowded & it is a large area. It is however quite pricey so save it for a special occasion, unless dropping a hundred per head (for a lovely dinner with wine ) is not an issue for you.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a fabulous time.

Each time the service is outstanding and the food delicious. We have never been disappointed. The location on the banks of Geneva Lake offers a gorgeous scenic view that everyone is sure to enjoy. The half baked chicken with pomegranate, mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts are a must try!2/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
