Love this restaurant and on a very bad weather, snow and ice evening it didn’t disappoint.
We loved the view of the lake and the food was great!
Pier 290 was a great place for us to have lunch before visiting the Yerkes Observatory. The French Dip, Fish Tacos, and Breakfast Burgers were great. Great food and service.
This was not my first visit to Pier290. I would go back and would also recommend this restaurant for others. Pretty view of the waterfront and the food was good. Disappointed in our service the night we were there, however nothing a catastrophe. Had to remind the waitress of drinks ordered but not received, ask for water refills and silverware but the food was warm when received.
First time here. Very friendly staff and great service. Food was very enjoyable. Will definitely return..enjoyed the sunset and lake views.
Wonderful Easter lunch/brunch with family. Nice variety on menu, waitstaff very knowledgeable and friendly. Beautiful view of lake on sunny day. Will be back!
A perfect place for ALL occasions! Excellent food, wait staff, views, ambiance!
The smokey grilled pork chop is delicious!!
Great spot to watch March Madneess but be able to retreat afterwards wonderful atmospheric sphere in the dining room for relaxing dinner.
An LG favorite for us:)
Our waitress seemed a little on edge, but otherwise the food was great!
Will be a returning customer for sure!
We all enjoyed the all you can eat fish fry. The boiled and fried fish were both excellent. We loved the potato pancakes! The service was outstanding, wonderful view, great ambiance.
Great location. Staff attentive but a bit intrusive. Decor kitschy but with some great early photos in hallway.
Steak average and average value. Bluegill fish-fry touted but average.
My wife's meal was nothing like how it was described in the Menu. Food was very overpriced.
Over-priced for mediocre food. Not impressed. The atmosphere was good, but food, service and cost did not meet my expectations.
Food is overpriced for what you get. Service was good, had to send one dinner back because it was very fatty. Could tell just by looking at it.
We had a great time at this amazing place, great service, great food and excellent ambiance... will go back there again.. highly recommend...
Food was awful sent back cheese board and tuna tartar was fishy definitely not fresh. However the lobster was on special and it was good
Appreciate being able to choose between lunch or brunch menu on Sunday. Friendly service and helpful with menu choices. Want to go back and try the Friday Night Fish Fry!
We love Pier 290 and the food this time was fabulous and great knowledge of cocktails!
Enjoyed a lovely weekday lunch at this very attractive lakeside restaurant. Fireplaces in both the dining room and the bar area create a cozy, comfortable feeling. We had the Friday Fish Fry (or broiled) special served with fries (or potato pancakes), cole slaw (or applesauce) bread and butter and delicious brandy old fashioned drinks. We can't wait to return.
Wonderful atmosphere and great food. Service was very good!
Very good. Will be back.
I found the clam chowder to be watery and over seasoned. I did not eat it and the waitress did take it off the bill, which I thought was great customer service. I had the tiger shrimp which were very tasty. The atmosphere was great. I really enjoyed the old photos in the hallway.
Pier 290 is a wonderful dining destination you have to experience. It is located on beautiful Lake Geneva in Williams Bay Wi, also home to Gage Marine. The restaurant is decorated with many antique nautical piece and the view is Second to none. finally, the reason to go there is the food and drink, which is superb to say the least. During the summer you can dine outside or inside. This is a must do if you are in the Lake Geneva area, consider a reservation at busy times !!!
Amazing diner, top quality ingredients resulted in an amazing meal. Dan, our waiter, was attentive without being intrusive. Great dining experience!
A culinary experience your taste buds won't forget! Carefully hand crafted food that explodes with unique flavors. Definitely my top restaurant in the area (Rock & Walworth counties). Atmosphere and lakeside dining is an added bonus!
This is a go-to restaurant for me. It's a bit of drive from home (Woodstock, IL) but is like going away for a mini-vacation. This time we were entertained by 2 eagles - yes, EAGLES - swooping and fishing and landing to lunch on the ice in sight, then fly within 30 feet of the windows to their nest nearby. The food is outstanding and as locally sourced as possible. The prices are a little high, but for the experience, food, service and ambience, well worth it. I lost a bracelet (fairly valuable and to me priceless for memory) which when I called to see if it was here, had been turned in by the worker who found it and was ready for me to come back and pick-up when I could. Honor, ethics and morals are wonderful things to see and experience. Thank you Pier 290! They never told me the worker's name so I could personally thank them, but I left them an envelope thank-u.
I was very disappointed that our reservation wasn't honored, even though we did speak with someone that afternoon to confirm. We were seated in the back area with the plastic sheets and luckily were by the fireplace. We enjoyed our meal and the evening but the ambiance was not nearly as nice as the main dining room.
Great for a family night out for dinner. Staff very friendly and attentive; including the Manager that night. Stopped by our table and was very pleasant.
Came to town for the Winterfest. Loved our experience at Pier 290 and will be back! Food was delicious.
Fantastic food and service. Don't miss out on the "brunch burger".....amazing! View of the lake is gorgeous, even in winter.
Wonderful. Such attention to detail. Beautiful room & table. Great bar and live music.
Great food and the service was great as always!
Our second visit to Pier 290. Date had lobster mac and I had the Beef Stroganoff. Somehow my dish had a large potato in it. Not sure how. Just average food. View great service great. There seems to be an official "children's section" to the far left in the main dining room. Second time we have had screaming kids during the entire meal - even though we were on the other side of the restaurant it is still annoying to let your kid carry on like that. As the mom of 4 there are solutions. Bar is always busy here and this was a winter visit - summer is quite different - very busy. Location here will always draw people in, but better food would seal the deal for return diners.
I have eaten at Pier 290 4 or 5 times and I am never disappointed. The food is always hot, tasty, and creative; the services is excellent; the drinks don't put you on your face, but they are well-crafted so you don't have to Uber it home. I try to have a different entrée every time I go. We brought a couple friends with us who were also impressed. I will keep coming as long as the quality stays as it is...excellent on all fronts.
Went on New Years Day for the Polar Plunge it was very fun and the restaurant is very nice bar area too!!
New Years Eve 2017. Good food and service as always. Only hitch was when we arrived we were seated in a tent like area with heaters for warmth . Unfortunately with a temperature of -3 degrees and a steady wind of 5 mph people were eating with their coats on. We asked to be moved inside and after a few minutes we had a high top table Inn the bar area. I was disappointed that when we made the reservation we would have been told about the possibility of the seating arrangement.
Dinner was delicious and the booths are very comfortable! My steak was perfectly cooked, veggies savory and wine excellent.
I know it is very very cold outside, but it was also a bit chilly inside. We were hoping the fireplace in the dining area would've been working. We did receive a very acceptable explanation of why it wasn't on though and understand the circumstances. We did, however, enjoy the fireplace near the bar area - that was very enjoyable, cozy, and liked the seating available. This was our first time here and we would definitely come back again. Our server was very helpful and friendly with a great personality also. The food was good and your restaurant was clean and welcoming! Thank you!
My Birthday at Pier 290 was perfect in every way. Food, ambiance, service, the view of the lake and best of all my good friends joining me.
The chicken pot pie seemed to be the winner although the beer cheese soup was excellent as well. Not too heavy, just right.
They let us bring our own cake which was a nice touch.
My husband and I love coming to Pier 290. It is attractive inside, and the food and service are great. The bar is fun with live music--great atmosphere! Keep up the good work.
