Everything was great as always!! Only issue is that Open Table told me I couldn’t get pts for my reservation with no explanation as to why?

Six of us went to Golden Mast to celebrate my husband and my 34 year wedding anniversary. We began with a drink in the bar where was a fire burning in the fireplace and two lovely gentlemen entertaining us. We then sat down in the dining room near the large bank of windows and enjoyed a delicious dinner. The waitress was attentive and brought us a complimentary strawberry shortcake for dessert. We had a very enjoyable evening at the Golden Mast.

Everything was excellent except for the roasted duck my husband had and I had it with the German plate. The duck was very dry and wrinkly.

Love the building and the environment there. The food is good with a German flare. Prices are higher than you would expect for a restaurant this far from the beaten path with good but not outstanding culinary options. What leaves to be desired is speed of service: it does feel like you’re in Europe with how slow everything is... We do still like this place; possibly a nicer destination during the summer to enjoy views of the lake from the dining room.

We cannot say enough about the service and food we had last night. My wife had the prime rib and I had the Valentine's Day special of beef medallions with scallops. Everything was cooked to absolute, melt-in-your-mouth perfection. The service was superb especially considering the server had to go up and down the stairs for our tables and others in our area on the balcony. While she was rushed she was always pleasant and always patient to check in on us and see if we needed anything. This was a great choice and experience for our first Valentine's Day dinner as a married couple. We will be back!

We were celebrating St. Valentines Day early. Food and service is always very good. The only negative comment would be regarding the Schaum Torte. They didn’t use fresh strawberries and instead used frozen, thawed out, mushy strawberries and there were maybe 6 in total poured over the ice cream and schaum torte. In this day and age when fresh strawberries can be purchased daily, I have to say that the mushy ones that we were served was a big miss.

We were greeted and seated promptly upon arrival. We loved that we were seated in a separate dining area overlooking the lake. They weren't super-busy when we were there, but they did seem to purposefully space-out their dining guests. The food was expertly prepared and nicely presented. The wait staff was very attentive without being over-bearing. We'll definitely be back!

I requested a brandy old fashioned sweet with olives, husband requested vodka Tom Collins. Hostess brought drinks, said one was a margarita and returned order. Brought correct drinks. I ordered second cocktail about 2/3 way thru dinner. Didn’t receive til I was done. Was old fashioned with fruit, no cocktail straw. Requested olives-not fruit. Waited for server to return to request change. She brought me a soda straw and 2 olives on a napkin!! Tacky! Food was good, service was okay: waitress obviously had more tables than appropriate. Hostess took our order. Better schedule more help for valentines weekend!

The reason I gave a poor review is because the online system allowed me to make a reservation. However when I arrived at the restaurant they were closed. I made a date with my girlfriend, we got dressed up and were ready for a nice evening out just to arrive at an empty building.

Worst experience to date. Kitchen was backed up and our server explained this to us so we were fine with that. Quality of our steaks were poor. Most of our food was cold. Vegetable of the day looked like it was scraped from the bottom of the pan. Vegetables were from a frozen bag, not fresh! - We expect more from a fine dining restaurant. Very disappointed.

We order a bottle of the house Cabernet wine and was now real pleased with the taste. It was a very watered down taste. Also had a glass of the next up Cabernet which was better but we have enjoyed better wine than that as well. All in all our visit was very good. We will return again.

We went to the Golden Mast for New Years Eve dinner. The food was fantastic, but the cocktails were terrible. We switched over to beer and wine, thinking one can’t really mess that up. Service was ok - there was extensive wait times in between ordering appetizers then dinner. When we got our soup/salad course we had a question regarding the soup ingredients (I’m a vegetarian and wanted to make sure there was no meat in the soup) and by the time our waitress came back to our table, the soup was cold and inedible. My son and husband ordered the steak and the were in heaven! Said it melted in their mouths!

This is a great date spot and just a quick visit out of the city. It also offers that different experience with that special touch that you just can not get at any downtown Milwaukee dining spots. I highly recommend this as a date spot it has amazing ambiance and character. The food and drinks also are on point and the service is what you would expect for a great dining experience. Check it out for yourself and enjoy!!

We love spending time eating and chatting at the Golden Mast. This time we reserved a window table in the bar. It was a quiet Tuesday night and the holiday decorations (inside and outside) were beautiful.

Service is always excellent, food fabulous and atmosphere wonderful. I recommend the Golden Mast to anyone for a perfect casual or dressy place to visit. Food has never disappointed.
