Diner Reviews
  • "The service here is quite variable. Two visits ago the service was very slow. Last time it was spot on. This time we're back to slow. Both slow service visits were when they didn't have a big crowd. The filets were well prepared to a nice medium rare and were tender and juicy."

  • "We went to the brunch because we got a gift card for a wedding present. It's a long way from home so ... it's not something I'd make an hour drive for...but if I were local the brunch is good, almost too much food, but it was nice. Contrary to many of the comments, the service was good for us. It is definitely focused on events, not regular dining - so that does affect the atmosphere. And...they should stay away from crab cakes...they were very fishy and being from back east - crab aren't fishy so it was definitely filler. Either have the crab or not, but don't advertise fish as crab."

  • "Seated comfortably at a window table, we started with coffee and bloodies. Coffee kept pouring, and bakery basket arrived warm and scrumptious. Sandwich was huge and tender. Servers had an incredible sense of humor while being seriously attentive."

  • "Met friends for dinner hoping for a sunset (Mother Nature didn't cooperate). Restaurant wasn't busy - sat at the bar first for drinks. Bartender tried to pull a fast one by taking cash for a drink then charging for same drink on credit card. Had the place been even remotely busy I'd have given him the benefit of doubt, but we were 4 of 6 people at the bar. Seated for dinner - the menu is a bit dated, but the food we ordered was good. Waitress seemed out of her element - and service was average (again the place was not busy). With so many good restaurants around it is unlikely we'll go back to 7 Seas. C"

  • "We find ourselves returning to SS again and again. Special family events, summer Fridays on the terrace, best Sunday brunch anywhere...the food is fresh and delicious and the setting spectacular."

  • "We went on a quiet Monday night and really enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and view of the lake. The food was superb! The formal diner menu was on the higher end, but we expected that."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "The ambience has always been a major attraction point for my wife and I as the restaurant sits on the shores of Lake Nagawiki. We especially like sitting outside and watch the sun set. The service was very good and friendly. The meal portions were well prepared, appropriately sized and arrived in a timely manner. I would gladly recommend Seven Seas to any of my friends."

  • "Our meal was fantastic. Steaks are the best around. Special dinners (fish specialties) was wonderful. All the sides were very tasty. Service was a bit slow although there were a couple of larger groups that took a lot of the waitress time. A-1 rating given by us - always. That is why we go back for special occasions."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "My wife and I were unimpressed with the hostess in that she didn't seat us and give us menus with a wine list when we arrived. She basically told us to seat ourselves. The waitress needed help and needs training on what a great dining experience should entail. The food was great, and the views are worth a million bucks. We had fun regardless because of a wedding that was taking place on the terrace adjacent to the dining area. But either ownership or management is neglecting the business, because it was missing a key component of a great dining experience."

  • "Our dinner was delicious, and we had a "super" waitress! Not only was she efficient, but so very personable. Greeted us with a big smile and even commented on the color of my dress. Drinks were very good and only 6.00 each, which we thought was reasonable. Crystal gave us the specials, I chose to stick with the prime rib, but my husband opted for the stuffed orange roughy. All in all, a great evening and we will be back to try their fish fry, which we hear is great too. Try their brunch which is also very good."

  • "First time there, and the food was delicious - the scallop appetizer is a must, as in the French onion soup. The wiener schnitzel was thin and crispy as it should be, and my husband found his prime rib perfectly cooked. The service was first class. However, the tables were so very close together, the noise level grew quickly. One younger couple next to us acted like they'd never been at a nice restaurant, and the group of four older people on the other side obviously were so happy to be together, but their conversation level was off the charts. We were only halfway finished with our meal, and we just wanted to go. I wish the restaurant would space tables out more. The loud conversations spoiled our romantic dinner!"

  • "I have only been to the Seven Seas a handful of times. Two of those times were for a wedding and a work banquet. The place is great for a reception or banquet, but dining out is a whole different experience. I felt the decor was outdated from the nineties as were the menu options. The food was expensive and the meal was just not fine dining. I might have given it another chance as it was a relaxing atmosphere with a beautiful view, but the pricing is out of what I was willing to pay for what I got out of the experience."

  • "Ordered the tenderloin filet and it was delicious. The menu was a little limited, would have liked to see more options. Overall food and service were excellent."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "The view was great, atmosphere good, food was good but, service was lacking. Hostess was not professional and seemed to interact with the bartender w/ language not so dinner or kid friendly at one point. Probably need a manager's presence to help with service and professionalism to raise the bar here. Overall, nice evening."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Our meal was lovely and the view was absolutely gorgeous. Make sure to ask for a table where you can see the lake."

  • "Fine food and a GREAT view make Seaven Seas a special dining experience!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "The outdoor dining is by the far the best part of this restaurant. Their view is spectacular, especially on a cooperative evening in WI. However, the inside of the restaurant is very outdated from the silverware to the chairs and more. I'm happy to pay for a good meal, but would like the ambiance to meet the same standard as the meal."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "If you are in the mood for some great dining, try the Seven Seas. The food was very good, the service was enjoyable, very upbeat wait staff and the views terrific. All in all, a very enjoyable evening!"

  • "Were there on a Tuesday around 6:00PM - not many people there at that time. Made a reservation online & asked for outside dining. When we arrived, the host proceeded to the dining room. Had to tell him about our online reservation. He didn't seem to have a clue about it. Sat outside - beautiful night. Waited a bit for the server (no big deal). We each ordered a glass of wine and when the server came back with the wine, we ordered an appetizer along with our meal. Appetizer didn't arrive for 30 minutes and 5 minutes later, we received our entree. I had ordered a salad - never received it. Wanted another glass of wine - had to flag a "runner" down. All in all, very disappointed..."

  • "The food was terrific. Service was slow however. They had a big wedding party that night which may have been the cause. Short on wait staff. Our waiter however was very cordial and did a nice job"

  • "We celebrated both Mother's Day and Father's Day with my elderly parents (90 and 91) at Seven Seas last Saturday evening. The service in the bar and in the dining room was super. We were so excited that you had ceviche on the appetizer menu! Also, the catfish special was outstanding! All of our meals were delicious including the variety of bread choices in the bread basket...loved the skinny breadsticks! My parents had dessert, and the portions were HUGE! Of course, they managed to eat every single bite! There was a big wedding outside while we were there, but that just added to our enjoyment. The views of the gardens and the lake were breathtaking and thoroughly enhanced our dining experience. We will definitely be back in the near future!"

  • "The food was wonderful, Sham torte was one of the best I have ever had, the views are gorgeous but due to the terrible service. We waited for long periods of time, were not offered coffee refills until asked and did not even receive coffee with dessert. I do not think we would return. Perfect lake views for pictures ."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We celebrated a teaching retirement with seven casual friends. Drinks on the patio were perfectly embellished by the view of sailboats on the serene lake. We were seated at a large roomy window table once indoors. Every entree was delicious and we had made multiple choices. Really appreciated being able to split some of the larger specialty salads to add to our main entree. We did get the wrong bottle of wine, but drank it anyway and it was good. No doubt that we will return for our next special occasion or celebration with this group of ladies."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Our dinner required us to clear our minds and enjoy serenity and we were able to do both at a lovely dinner on a Saturday evening. Entrees included a special pork trio and a schnitzel which were prepared and presented with perfection. A couple glasses of wine and service with a smile from both the bar area and the dining room. We could not have asked for a better evening."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We had a not-so-good experience at SS a year or more ago (unsatisfactory service and food), but we're so glad we gave them another chance. Even though the dining room was packed and there were two wedding receptions ongoing, our service was prompt and friendly and the filet was so tender and cooked a nice medium rare. SS is definitely back on my rotation of fine places to eat."

  • "We went out with my family for my husband's birthday, and we really enjoyed ourselves at Seven Seas. We've been there many times before, and we are sure to come again. Our server was very polite and attentive without being overbearing. The food was delicious. I appreciate that there are vegetarian options, and there is a nice variety of menu items for the non-vegetarian members of my family."

  • "this is not the first time we have eaten at Seven Seas....we went to Brunch and had more food than we could possibly eat. Dieder, the chef who makes the omelettes, waffles and other goodies is most pleasant and helful. Joanne our wait staff was just superb. Could not have asked for anything else!"

  • "This was my first visit to the Seven Seas restaurant and it was excellent. I ordered the braised short rib which was the special and it was so tender that I didn't need a knife. I wish we would've had a table next to the window for a better view of the lake but we did see the sunset."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "My family loves to eat at Seven Seas and recently tried the Sunday brunch. The variety and quality of the food appealed to everyone in the group. Service has always been excellent. The price is an exceptional value for brunch and we all left happy, planning to come back again."

  • "I've been going to the Seven Seas for about 10 years now and the restaurant never ceases to amaze me. The food is always as tasty as can be, the waitstaff extremely outstanding, and the atmosphere impeccable. Menu offers a variety of options including steak, lobster, chicken, and salads. Each entre is meticulously prepared to your liking every time. They have a way of making their food unique to their restaurant."

  • "When I look at a menu in Wisconsin I invariably think give me a break. If only restaurant kitchens would realize that for some people less is better, and the entire menu doesn't have to be a sauce but have on top of another sauce, etc. quite frankly, it tries me crazy searching the menu for just a simple sea scallops lightly cooked or the same for a Dover sole basically sautéed, and that's it. I'll the items on this menu went too far in terms of additional sauces or attributes on food. A few plane items for the entrée would be very desirable in this lovely restaurant."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The food was Ok, not much taste, needed some pizzazz. If they want to keep customers coming back, they need to step up their game. When we got there to check in the hostess ignored us until she was done organizing the menus. She never said one word or cracked a smile while she was escorting us to our seats. The waitress did not go out of here way to be friendly. Took our oreder and that was about it. I was disappointed in our didning experience other than the view of the Lake."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "While the lake view was scenic, and the wait staff were very accommodating, the food did not meet the quality criteria. The steak was fatty and somewhat tough, had to send the first slice prime rib back, as it was over-done for medium. Potatoes were gluey -- seemed microwaved, not baked. Asparagas ends were tough, not properly trimmed. Especially for the price, not up to par."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We were really looking forward to dining at Seven Seas. The filet was average. The potato tasted as if it had been made in the morning and reheated later. The asparagus was the best food item on the plate."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Sunday brunch was excellent. Build your own bloody Mary bar was stocked to the 9's. The stein is the way to go. From beginning to end the food and service by the 5 of our group had only good things to say and then some. Want to go back when the lake is not frozen."

  • "Sevens Seas was a real nice place to go. The view is fantastic. It's really got a new old-school gentleman's feel to it. Private rooms, private wine rooms, and a very nice bar area. The food was exceptional as well. From prime rib, to scallops, to pork prime rib as the special. Also-the desert was fantastic. I will come back in the late spring/summer/fall to see the fantastic view of the lake and the gardens."
