  • Great for Brunch

  • Special Occasion
Join us for casual, small plate dining & fireside cocktails in our decadently furnished 1885 mansion. In the spirit of the great lakefront "cottages" of yesteryear, the BAKER HOUSE has recreated a world of Gilded Age living where grand entertaining is experienced daily and lavish parties are thrown nightly. Sing along at the player piano in our music room, play poker in the game room, savor fine wine in our library and dine fireside in our parlor. Instead of traditional restaurant seating, guests are served in plush wing backed chairs and overstuffed fringed couches throughout the mansion.
NEW MENU IS BEING POSTED!
Our menu of small plates is conducive for lounging and sharing & features many regional items such as Wisconsin artisan cheese boards & charcuterie, seasonal fondues and heartier favorites like Salmon Wellington Style and Braised Short Ribs. For an extra special evening, book a second floor mansion hotel suite!

We went there for the fist time and were a little concerned about the price point but we were very pleased with all we received. The ambiance was beautiful. The food was amazing. The service was outstanding.

Very cool. We were looking for a Sunday brunch date and this was a sweet find. Any other place I would have said this was overpriced, but the atmosphere and ambiance , service and selection just made it an over the top super morning and totally worth it. They really so keep the champagne coming. Generally I don't take time to write a review but this place really is a sure thing for Sunday Brunch

Great location, good food, hospitable staff. The staff should maybe mention all the hats on display can be tried on and maybe encourage the patrons to have some fun and take photos with them. Our host and server didn't mention this to us.
