This place is a gem! Like taking a step back in time! Except for the food, the food is fine dining. Almost didn’t go because of many recent bad reviews. I don’t know what was their problem, we had an amazing time and yummy food. Hope to be back next time we visit.

The brunch menu was extremely limited. Only two selections for the entree. This is not well advertised on their site or when booking. There also are no exceptions if you have people in your party who cannot eat certain things. Our waitress was very nice, but you could tell was too busy. The food was good what we had, but I’m not sure I’d come again, especially at that price point with limited selections.

Server asked if we were celebrating anything, and we told her our 20th anniversary. I thought she was asking for a reason, but we didn't hear anything more about it after that. We weren't looking for anything extra, just thought it was odd that she asked and didn't mention anything more about it during the dinner.

If you're on the fence about whether or not brunch is worth the price, make a reservation. This is the most amazing brunch we've ever had. Will definitely plan to go again the next time we're in the area. Service was excellent - Mimosas just kept coming. The view of the lake from the porch area was beautiful.

Lovely and historic place..very special..we loved the Ice Bar..
Wine list is very limited..missing a good non New Zealand sauvignon blanc..live entertainment was too loud..not a big fan of Hooty and the Blowfish! All that said, the staff was great and it was fun..I will return

Greeter and the Waitress was rude and took a very long time. We didnt even get a chance for brunch because she never came to our table. When she finally did we asked for the bill and left. Such a shame too! We were hoping for a fantastic time so we could go there the following weekend for a girls brunch. Place was beautiful tho.

This is a lovely quaint setting and I've been here before and have thoroughly enjoyed it. The service though was not up to par and if I hadn't been entertaining my family members after a long hiatus of not dining out, I would have spoken to the manager. Soup and salad came after the entrees were served. Sides were barely warm. Had to ask for soup spoon several times. Not an inexpensive place and they just were not on their game. Wish them well but would have a hard time thinking about going back.

Ambiance was unique. Service was okay. Nothing really stood out as exceptional. The quality of the food was, unfortunately, not exceptional. I ordered the Chicken Angelica. The chicken was dry and the provolone cheese was a piece of deli cheese melted over the top (which was dry and crusted) My husband ordered steal and said there was not much flavor. Potatoes were dry, too. Definitely not worth the prices.

Honestly we did not think that is was worth it for the price. The waitress was great but they had a person singing way to loud and we could hear each other. Had filet mignonette for myself and my wife which was not cooked the way we asked. Also did not have a choice for the vegetables.

So many COVID Violations - staff not wearing masks, staff wearing masks incorrectly, staff pulling masks down to answer the phone. No social distancing, tables are not 6feet apart and guests are crowded in hallways and lobbies waiting for their tables.

Great food and drinks, very disappointed and distracted by how unsafe and uncomortable we were with all of the covid violations happening.

We were in Lake Geneva for the Ice Sculpture event.
It was our first dinner at the Baker House. Service and food was excellent.
The House is so cozy and so much history.
We will definitely visit again.

Beautiful setting. So fun switching out wearing different hats that are there for your enjoyment. . We were seated at the Roulette table and really enjoyed using our drinks and water goblets as markers for our “bets” fun way to kill some time while we waited for appetizers and meal.
Service was great and food was excellent.

We loved the food but the only thing that we didn’t like that night it was live music the dj choice of music it just didn’t fit the atmosphere that this restaurant is trying to put you in
Not the best choice of music
Definitely will not go there again if they have live dj playing

Going downhill
Used to be really fun. Funny hats great decor good service
Seated on front porch in a corner despite a reservation several days ahesd. Blazingly hot or freezing depending on the heater vent
Not waitperson fault but they are understaffed
. WP had several tables to tend and service suffered. Order duck $34 and prime rib $38. 40 mins after ordering dood arrived - duck was hot prime rib barely warm. Yech.... due to short staffing. Asked for salt and pepper and almost 10 minutes went by before it came to table “ I forgot” was the reason.
Background thump thump thump ‘music’ competing with attempts at rap music from sloppily dressed “dj”.
Duck and nest eye good but Warner would have been nice. Crowd was mostly he’s lit drinking and demanding younger crowd who waitress was more interested in spending time at those tables
Will try another night sometime without the crude music attempt being there

We had an outstanding experience for our first indoor quarantine dining experience. We were substantially far from the other occupied table in another room. The atmosphere was warm and cozy. The server went out of her way to please. The bourbon manhattan was a wonderful start to the evening, as well as the Tortilla soup and superb Caesar salad! The crab cakes were delicious and full of crab, not fillet, and the chicken entree was perfectly prepared. Put Baker’s House on your list.

Very cute and different styles of restaurant. Hats can he tried on! I didn't know that. The baked cod was delicious. The NY strip was cooked correctly. The white chocolate Raspberry cheese cake was to die for. Wine selection was good! I definitely recommend to try it out! It's was a plus that it was connected to the Bella Vista.

Service was slow, food came out cold. Limited seating fixed menu due to Covid; seems like it should not have been too difficult to provide good service and hot food. No reason to go back
