Our server was phenomenal! 3 people ordered the fish fry, and 2 of 3 did not enjoy it. Appetizers of cheese curds and onion rings were very good. Burgers were enjoyed by all, and so was the shrimp scampi. Only complaint would be that we were brought a Anniversary dessert to share, but were charged for this dessert? Would definitely return!

Food was very good. The virus issue seemed to have many customers on edge. The majority were wearing masks when they arrived, just the opposite from a few weeks ago. Hard to think they wore them because Evers said to.

Ate outside on the patio overlooking the water and bar area. Food was excellent, as was the service. Only thing was it did get a little cold even with the outdoor heaters so I recommend bringing a jacket especially this time of year

Michelle was fantastic. She was there when we needed something but not checking too often. She was very friendly and we felt like we were with family. A lot of available seating inside and out (early Sunday morning). We were greeted with smiles and asked as to what our seating preference was. I hate to say it, the food was better than what I can make.

Service was great, very good waitress. Food was ok. Came out room temperature, seemed like it was sitting for a while. We were in the enclosed patio- it was cold in there! If you have a big group, expect to be put out there.

We went for my Mom’s birthday. Every table was socially distant and the wait staff was all wearing masks. We felt very safe. We had a great dinner and everything went well.

Our table was not ready when we arrived. After being seated and ordering drinks we then ordered our food which took over an hour to get to us. When we complained they blamed it on the fact that they had a wedding with over 200 people to feed. NOT MY PROBLEM!! They did comp our round of drinks.

Ordered the beef barley soup. It was quite salty and had just juice not much else. Ordered the chicken fried chicken and the mocha dessert both excellent. Service was excellent. Our only disappointment was the soup. All four of us ordered the soup and all four of us received basically salty beef broth with not much else.

We did reserve an outdoor table but someone in our party wanted to sit inside. They started to seat us in the area near the bar and closest to the windows. I was seated in that area previously and it is extremely noisy. It was not crowded but you could hear the noise level was high. They were nice enough to seat us in the larger dining room to the right of the bar.

We had a delightful lunch other than the disappointing soup. I would recommend.

One of our favorite places. Love the menu and how flexible they are with the menu. We had great staff. The only complaint I have, is how loud it is. We were there on a Thursday evening, and it was pretty busy. It gets loud in the dining room making it hard to hear the person next to me talking.

Went for dinner with 3 other couples to celebrate 1st year wedding anniversary. Prime rib special was delicious. Had a very nice table by the water. Mosquitoes got bad around 9 pm. Outside bar and fire pits nice extra.

The available outdoor seating was fantastic. All servers were wearing masks, even outside.
Loved the pontoon ride with captain Wayne. Very informative & a nice way to pass the time while waiting for a table.
Food was outstanding.

This is a gorgeous restaurant on Big Muskego lake with nearly 360 views of the water plus plenty of outdoor seating. The waitstaff is excellent. I would have given 5 stars however our food took well over an hour to arrive at our table. It was good, but not good enough to justify such a wait. For refence, I ordered the fish fry and my husband ordered the french dip. Two meals that realistically should take no more than 10 minutes to put together.

Our waitstaff was very good. The food was fantastic. The view of the lake and setting sun was everything we hoped for. The only downside was our table was on grass and leaned a little down hill, we fixed it by putting 2 legs on saucers and continued to have a great time visiting with friends.
