Our family party of 7 was seated next to a larger, much louder family. We asked to be moved and were quickly accommodated and seated in a quieter area. Service by Nancy was outstanding; she was ALWAYS smiling and pleasant! Food served was warm and delicious, as always at Weisgerber's.

We visit The Golden Mast frequently and have always had exceptional food and service. We were there for dinner on Tuesday, October 1, 2019. It was quite busy and there was a party, too. The three of us were seated in our favorite window table in the bar and enjoyed a leisurely dinner and drinks. We all tried a new dinner item and the duck, filet and walleye were great. The Golden Mast homemade soups are always delicious. Our server, Laura, was extremely busy, however, she was attentive and always smiling. The menu is varied with so many options. Big dinners, burgers, appetizers and a fabulous bar! We will return soon. Thank you for another wonderful evening.

Our food was so rushed, we had to cancel an appetizer we had ordered because they brought out our entrees before we were even does with our soups, much less the appetizer. VERY disappointing!!!

Bar was nice and friendly, waitress was very professional and friendly but food ( duck) seemed more like reheated banquet food not freshly prepared. Also veggies over cooked and lacked flavor. Soup and salad were very good.

Food and service were very good. Not very busy on a Tuesday evening, had a table at the window overlooking the lake, very nice. Drinks prior at the bar were also very good. Friendly bar tender and table server.

Our waitress Laura was terrific! She was very friendly, attentive, and helpful. It was helpful that I was able to increase the size of our party from six to eight just before our reservation date. It was our 50th wedding anniversary so after we had eaten, we were surprised when Laura started delivering desserts. None of our guests admitted to ordering them. Laura checked the order form and when she saw the name, we knew that they were from our daughter. Before we left Laura told me that I made her day when she heard me say that I should have known it was our daughter because she would know which desserts I would choose. That means that Laura did a perfect job! She obviously put some thought into her choices. We all appreciated her!

Was hoping to have a "Great Night" with our son who was on leave from the military. Had reservations for 5:30, had cocktails in the bar, 6:00 still waiting to be seated, went up the hostess asking about our table she said go to the table by the window in the bar. We sat and waited for a server, he finally came but we still had no menus, brought us 1 menu for 3 people said they were running low "WHAT"!!!! 6:30 still waiting for server to come back , we had no drinks and ready to order, he came back took our order for drinks and food. Still waiting for drinks we don't see him at all, comes back and say's there's a back-up in the kitchen, o.k. but where's are drinks???? 7:30 Our food comes luckily it was hot, at this point we weren't expecting much. The food was excellent, the lack of service and staff is unacceptable, what was suppose to be a great night with our son was pretty much ruined by the time we left at 8:30, 3 hours for dinner?????? Very Disappointed!!!

We took our granddaughter to the Golden Mast for her 18th birthday, as she had never been there. We were able to get a table by a window overlooking the lake which was beautiful. Overall, everything was wonderful, our waitress was very efficient and cordial, but not overly friendly. I love the black raspberry lemonade, which our granddaughter had too and loved it. Our granddaughter always wants to try new things, so she had the Mushroom Ravioli and did not care for it. I thought the flavor was very good, but I'm not a fan of the different squashes that were in it. I had the special which was ribs and they were very tender and delicious. My husband had the wiener schnitzel which he always has at the Golden Mast and as usual, it did not disappoint. The salad is always so fresh and delicious, as is the bread. The waitress did bring our granddaughter Schaum Torte with a candle in it for her birthday and it was delicious. All in all, we will definitely go back, as we have never been disappointed.

Every year we come here for my wife’s birthday because she loves this place. However this year the service wasn’t the best. First the table we were seated at had crumbs all over my wife’s seat - we wiped them off no big deal. Then my wife’s spoon had old food stuck on it - I brought it up with the waitress and she didn’t even bring a new spoon out. Finally, it was my wife’s birthday which I mentioned when I booked the reservation on open table and called to confirm earlier in the day. Every year they bring out a birthday desert with a candle, this year nothing. To make things worst the table next to us has the birthday desert with a candle. The whole night we felt like we were the after thought to the larger group sitting next to us even though we were paying $50 a head for dinner. To their credit the food was excellent.

We love the Golden Mast for any occasion. This one was a birthday celebration and we ate in the bar and ordered from the main dining room menu. The view from a window table is fabulous. Braxton was our server and he was excellent. The food is always wonderful and portions are large. Usually enough to take home for leftovers!

We will return frequently!

The restaurant has old world charm. Very exciting menu with American and German favorites. The "small plate" menu was a surprise. Great atmosphere right on a beautiful lake...and a boat launch and dock on premises.

WE have been to Golden Mast many times over the years, and went to celebrate my daughter's birthday this time. It wasn't busy for a Sunday evening, yet took an hour to get our food from when we ordered. It just seems overpriced for the value. My baked potato was over cooked (seemed it had been sitting under a warmer for a long time), and our steaks were cooked to our order, but just lacking in flavor/seasoning. I don't feel you should have to order a side sauce for your steak to make it taste good. The waitress was fine/nice and did offer my daughter a birthday dessert when she found out it was her birthday, but it was after we had finalized our bill and my husband had gone outside. We had a prime window seat for dinner watching people bring in their boats, so at least that made the time pass. I don't know if we will return anytime soon given options for a great steak. Golden Mast can't be beat for the views, and I guess the location is built into their pricing. You can get a better steak elsewhere, but maybe not looking at water.

Golden Mast is a beautiful restaurant in a beautiful setting.
However, the service was poor: We waited 10 minutes to get menus, half an hour for appetizers, and our main course was served before the appetizers were completed.
The food was poor: the duck dry and overcooked, the fish poorly seasoned, the fish chowder under seasoned, the baked potato cold (the oven didn't have its heat on, according to the waitress.)
The ladies room was not well maintained: there was no soap in some of the dispensers and the hand swipe towel dispenser did not work
The woman at the front of the restaurant was dismissive of my comments.

I would have given an excellent except that there was arguing going on in the kitchen. We could hear it from our table. It took away from the excellent ambiance. We went on the 4th of July. The Golden Mast in an excellent place to watch the fireworks on Oaukachee Lake. The restaurant allows it's patrons to sit on their patio after dining to watch the show. The also have a more casual menu for the evening so it doesn't have to be pricey.
