We went for our second anniversary and were pleasantly surprised. My wife is german and was a bit sceptical about wether the food would be authentic or not. She was amaxed at the wonderful job they did with the food. The ambiance was perfect and offered us the privacy we wanted as well as giving us an amazing view of the lake. The wait staff was very pleasant. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a romantic getaway, or even just a fun night out. The cost of the food is a little high, but it is worth the price.

The facility, staff and food are all excellent. Lot's of old world charm of a Germanic/Bavarian variety. Nice variety of dishes, with ethnic specialties. Food is excellent without being pretentious. All the wait staff are clearly trained to be attentive. All seats provide a lovely view of the lake.

We waited 45 mins even though we had a reservation due to them marking us down as being seated. We were told we could wait at the bar so waited until we saw others being seated 45 mins later and checked back.

We really came for a good steak and i was so disappointed. My med-rare $40 steak was close to well done. My boyfriends prime rib was too salty (and he loves salt btw) to even eat, most was not eaten and left. $120 later and we had just an awful meal. We are not the type to complain and cause a scene, we just won’t be back unfortunately.

I’m shocked a well known place could mess up meals this badly.

We took clients from out of the country mostly for the food. The food is ok. The view is everything. I would go there for appetizers and drinks and sit on the patio.

Main course was poorly presented. French Fries were overdone. Shrimp were reheated and not freshly prepared. Salmon was ok, but spinach burnt. First time in over 30 yrs we experienced a less than satisfactory dinner.

We had father's day brunch there and it was delicious! Originally our plan was to sit outside, however, the weather didn't cooperate and we were pleasantly surprised to find they had moved our reservation inside!

The Golden Mast is excellent! Food is fabulous and service is fantastic! Celebrated our anniversary there. Love the setting with the huge wall of windows overlooking the lake. Just beautiful. We both had the select your own surf and turf. This was really nice as you could customize your selections and steak size. Plus, it was delicious. Can’t wait to go again soon!

It was well worth the drive. Something for everyone on the menu. Great service. Great food. Great Drinks. We were treated like we were part of the family ( in a good way). The worst part of the visit was trying to chose how much you could eat and not crawl out.
Save room for dessert! Better yet, maybe eat dessert first.
You can choose from full meals or make yourself a meal with starters, soup , salad and dessert.

My sauerbraten was excellent with the red cabbage and spaetzl; however, I regret to report that my wife's pork chop was rather dry and not too tasty. The recommended red wine was exceptionally good and the ambiance was great for our date.

We ordered the German specialties, Wiener Schnitzel, and the combination plate, which included small portions of several German specialties. My Wiener Schnitzel and the accompanying spaetzel were somewhat too cool and dry. The vegetables were cooked and seasoned delightfully. The spinach salad with hot bacon dressing was very good. We were treated with a wonderful Schaum Torte for dessert to celebrate our anniversary. We had a table side window view of the lake--nice.

Made a reservation but still had to wait 56 minutes to be called. Went for mother's day brunch. We were going to wait four more minutes before we made the decision to leave. Then we were seated at our table and sat a good 5-10 minutes before we waived down a person clearing off tables to question him how the buffet works? No server came to our table to let us know how everything worked. When getting to the buffet line there were only a couple tiny pieces of salmon left and the beef was gone. Pretty disappointed.

We seated immediately when we arrived, it did take a while before our waitress, Karen came for our drink order. It was 6 pm, so prime dinner hour. The dining room was quite full and moving through the tables was difficult for wait staff. Our drinks were as ordered. Dinners were as expected and the accompanying soup was hot and good. Next time we may reserve for an earlier or later time to avoid the rush dinner hour.
