We made a reservation for 8:00. They told us the table was not quite ready yet upon our 7:55 arrival. We were told to wait in the bar and they would come get us when our reservation was ready. (There were plenty of open tables at 7:55). In the bar we met a few people that were waiting for their 8:30 reservations. I went back up to the hostess at 8:15 and was told to continue to wait in the bar as they were not quite ready. At 8:30, after the people we met in the bar had been seated, and the people in front of us in line whom just walked up to the counter with no reservation were seated, we were given one of the open tables right next to the hostess stand with no apology or care for the fact we were being seated a whole half hour late.

Our waitress, Carole, was great and the food was excellent! This made the experience a little better, despite my POINTLESS reservation.

Stayed at the Abbey for 1 night and ate at 240 west. We opted for the prime rib buffet, which included crab legs, both of which were delicious! Been coming to the Abbey for years. Its a great spot, lovely room and pianist with fireplaces and pretty views of Lake Geneva! Ate here from breakfast too, both of our servers were outstanding! Very attentive and bought us drinks on the house! We'll be back!

The food was very good, our server was very friendly but it was a very slow meal service. It took two hours and that was without apps or dessert. I’ll be back but will make sure it’s when I have nothing else going on.

We started off with a great experience, but as the restaurant got busy our waiter was not following up and we through last part of dinner and desert without a check in. Missed having coffee with my desert ended up just getting check with was a long process as well to get and then also to wait for paying.

I get it’s busy but it’s Saturday should have been staffed properly if that was the issue.

We were here for the breakfast buffet on Christmas Day and considering the reviews, we were a little dissapointed. The food was okay - typical breakfast fare (sausage, bacon, hash browns, scrambled eggs) and then prime rib, fruit and vegetable salads, belgian waffles and cakes. The prime rib was great. Also enjoyed the omelette station. The guys serving the prime rib and waffles were a hoot and looked like they were having a jolly old time.

The restaurant was amazing! Such a relaxing atmosphere. Elegant yet comfortable at the same time. Our waiter, Edward, was professional and knowledgeable and very accommodating to special requests. We will definitely be back again to try some more of the menu!

We have been dining at this location for many years, we decided to return for Christmas Eve dinner. The on-line menu listed full menu plus a select 4-course meal. When we arrived we were told there was only the 4-course meal (and children’s menu). The service was slow and painful, the portions were meager at best and the staff informed us, after the menu switch, there was not bread service. What?

It was Christmas Eve, no options to leave, so we endured two hours of poor service and food.

We celebrated our 40 anniversary at the Abbey. Decided to eat at 240 West having never been there. We were so pleased that the food was delicious, reasonably priced and the service made us feel special. Our server was amazing. She even brought us 2 glasses of champagne! I would definitely recommend!

Came for the oysters and seafood on the Saturday night buffet. Loved everything - only thing is the oysters could have been a little fresher. Still, it was most enjoyable, and relaxing. Our waiter was the best waiter I have come across in a very long time! He knew the menu like no other, along with offering specials and upselling, and was most polite, very nice, proper, helpful, and I wish I knew his name to tell you because he should be commended. I know how difficult it is to get good or even great service these days so keep this nice young man - he's one of the best, you're lucky to have him! We sat by the window, a table of four which included a four year old girl and our whole experience was terrific. Thank you!

The Saturday night Prime Rib Buffet was fantastic, and I never even had any Prime Rib. It was all good, but my most favorites were the salt encrusted baked potatoes, crab legs, salad bar with the fresh walnuts and the Best Pecan pie I’ve ever eaten.

We make an annual trip each year to this restaurant for Sunday Brunch to see Santa, listen to the amazing piano player ( who can play the piano and trumpet at the same time), and have a great meal. It's our family tradition before heading out after brunch to cut down our Christmas tree at a nearby place. The brunch has always been delicious with a variety of foods including an omelette station, carving station, sweets table and hot and cold entrees. Santa is there to talk to the kids in a relaxed atmosphere and each child receives a candy cane from him too. I can't speak about brunch at other times of the year. Menu options are also available as well as the brunch. The dining room overlooks their harbor and Lake Geneva which is pretty.

We were celebrating our anniversary & were looking forward to a slow paced dinner. When we arrived at the hostess stand there were 3-4 young staff members engaged in a personal discussion. It took several moments to get their attention. Our waiter was very nice but wanted to rush us through our dinner due to the late hour, 8:00PM, of our reservation, the restaurant closed at 10:00PM. We informed him that we would like a few moments to enjoy our drinks. The drinks were watered down w/ little flavor. My cosmo had so much water in it that the water was actually floating as a layer on top. We ordered the Prime Rib buffet, which included snow crab legs, fish, baked potatoes, pasta, salad, cheese bar, oysters on the 1/2 shell, & dessert bar. The lettuce was wilted, the cheese had been out so long that it was dry, the oyster bar had barely enough ice to keep the oysters cool, the items on the main buffet were barely warm & the desserts were dry & tasted old. The prime rib itself was good & the gentleman at the carving station was very funny.

It was our first visit. We came to celebrate my birthday and were not disappointed. Service was attentive but not intrusive. The server certainly knows the menu and his suggestions were helpful. Everyone enjoyed his or her meal. The Chilean Sea Bass was perhaps the best I've had. It was our first visit, but not our last.

When we arrived we were told that our server would be with us shortly and to be patient because they were busy(the restaurant was barely half full). It took 15 mins for our waiter to come to our table. When I️ asked the server what beers they had on tap he was fairly snippy when he told me they do not have beer on tap. Then seemed annoyed when I️ asked what beer they had in bottles. After ordering, it took almost 45 minutes for us to get our soup, salad and our apatizer. At this point my son(a toddler) was losing his composure so we asked to take it to go and for the bill. Once again our server seemed very annoyed. Finally when I️ tried to pay with a Visa prepaid card I️ was told they don’t take gift cards. Needless to say, I️ would never consider revisiting this restaurant.

My wife and I chose 240 West from the list of restaurants participating in the 'Dine Around the Lake' event in Lake Geneva, WI, and we were very pleased with the menu offerings. We chose different appetizers, entree's and dessert so we could experience all the Chef had to offer.
Everything exceeded our expectations!

We got the Prime Rib buffet. The beef was excellent, but the crab legs were hit or miss. The first few plates my husband got were dry, but when they put out a fresh batch, he said they were excellent. The rest of the selections were very average. I’ve had better buffets! I’m wishing we had ordered off the menu... the food at the table next to us looked amazing!

We spent the night at the Abbey Resort for our 20th wedding anniversary. We spent the day at the spa and didn't feel like venturing out for dinner. We made a reservation 240 West for dinner. Knowing it was a quiet off season Wednesday night, we weren't expecting too much. We were pleasantly surprised at what a great experience it was! Our server was fabulous - top notch. We had a great bottle of wine and entrees were really superb. The chef even insisted on preparing another portion of salmon for my husband after realizing he had ordered it medium rare (even though the first portion was great). They topped it off with a complimentary dessert and two glasses of champagne! We will definitely be back.

Went for an 80th Birthday celebration with immediate family of 8. They put us in the *private room* that had absolutely stunning décor and the ambiance far exceeded my expectations! Our server JAMIE was the BEST OF THE BEST! She was, personable, courteous, efficient and friendly to mention only a few! All 8 of us were impressed - keep up the good work, JAMIE.

When I first called to make a reservation, they mentioned to me that the private room was available, otherwise I would have had no idea - The manager Daniel was also most accommodating . We went in early to put a few decorations up, we were really early as they were still setting up the room, we sat down and the waiter brought us waters while we waited - basically 1 minute.

The Food was great, while having a good selection to choose from - but the staff was absolutely the BEST :)

Manager chased me through the hotel embarressing me in front of my guests and others. All because I parked in a legal spot that was not marked valet only. And manager did not like being told no. Was so pathetic he had to call security who was most polite and saw nothing wrong which enraged the manager. All done for us to aarive for a 6:30 PM reservation with no one else in entire restaurant. You decide, I won't be back.

First and foremost, let me say that this venue is beautifully located on Lake Geneva. We were a bridal party of 6 and opted to have brunch here before our spa treatments. The food was delicious! From the fresh omelettes to the tasty little jams on every table. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. What we did not enjoy was the attitude from our server Samantha. She was inattentive, unwilling to ask if my friend order the Challah bread (even though it was on the menu), and rolled her eyes when we asked to split our check given that there were 6 of us. We literally had to flag her down to get our check because she basically disappeared and started avoiding our table. I do not think anything we asked was unreasonable and frankly we were there to celebrate our friend Megan's wedding. And this experience sort of soured our morning. She basically threw the check down and was upset we asked for split checks. How is this a hard task? How is it a hard task to remotely be nice to your table?

We went for the Prime Rib Buffet on a Saturday night with reservations at 5:00 when the restaurant opened. The cod was good, the baked potato was good, the pasta was ok. The chicken on the buffet was cold, the pork was tasteless, and the prime rib that we went for was overdone. It was almost like it was left over from the day before and was warmed up. A new prime rib was put out and it was medium to medium rare, which was much better. For $30 per person, the value was not there. This being said, 240 West was recommended to us by two other couples who had a pleasant experience. Based on our experience, we will never recommend 240 West as a place to go to eat, rather we will tell people to definitely not go there.

Great waterfront/marina view. The Staff was friendly, though because the restaurant was under Staffed to handle the crowd, we waited long periods of time to place our order, or be served. I should also point out that they were grossly understaffed and the restaurant was only at 50% capacity. The food was basic and nothing special...on par with the average family restaurant. If however, you seek an incredible waterfront/marina view, with slow service, average food, higher prices, and personable wait staff...this is your place. It could have been more in my opinion.

We were on our way to a concert by the lake and gave this place a try. Everything was good to very good. They offer a better than expected buffet which my wife took and I tried some items on the menu. The views are nice and the place has a good vibe. The young server staff is knowledgeable but needs to follow up a bit more. The food and value are a great find. We will go back.
