Great brunch! My wife and I love the feel of this place and really enjoy the food and the service. Try the Shananagins. You will not be disappointed!

We dined here on Valentine's Day. I picked a late reservation time so we wouldn't have to wait. We had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. The food was very good. Our waitress wasn't overly attentive.

We arrived for a late dinner on Friday, Valentine's night. The food was average. The walleye was too heavily breaded. The Fillet Oscar my Partner had was prepared very well and she said it was delicious, however, her side dishes were cold. She had to send them back to the kitchen to be reheated. When our server brought them back to the table, she set them down on the opposite side of the table. There were no apologies, just put them down and left without a word. The same happened when she ordered another glass of wine. The server put the glass down on the opposite side of the table, once again.
After dinner, we sat down at the bar, and experienced a totally different vibe. The bartenders were great. They handled a very large crowd on Valentine's day really well. No one waited long, they were polite and efficient. When the crowd thinned out later that evening we had a great conversation with the two bartenders. They gave us a history of the restaurant, let us in on some of their favorite dishes, and invited us back again. That treatment alone will bring us back to give them a second chance.

Went for valentines dinner. Ordered off their Valentine’s Day menu and really wanted the prime rib which was on the menu but not available on that day. That was irritating because it was in the Valentine’s Day menu. Wound up ordering the surf and turf which was way overpriced and didn’t even come with a soup or salad. Food was good but service was slow.

We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating my wife's birthday with a Sunday Brunch here that was amazing. We had a group of 8 and the service was excellent, food was delicious - highly recommend the Chicken and the Egg, Shenanigans, and any of the awesome drinks - highly recommend the Bourbon Mary! Nice vibe and atmosphere overlooking the lake with a Northwoods feel.

I met a few colleagues after work for dinner and the restaurant was not busy. We had an appetizer, drinks and dinner. The service was terrible. Our server did not seem to check on us at all unless we flagged her down. We often had to reach out and ask for an additional drink, extra napkins, silverware, etc. When we placed our dinner order - there was a very long delay in being served. A very nice lady came to our table to apologize and indicated that she was sorry the service was taking so long. Overall the food was just average and nothing really stands out. There are lots of good places to eat and we do not plan to re-visit Bass Bay a second time.

We had a reservation and our table was ready on time. Food was good, service was good. However the place is really loud! Having a table of 10 made it hard to converse at times. We will be going back as the food is really good.

On Sunday mornings, many families visit here with their young children (babies) and the walking areas can become congested with baby strollers and seats. Might be wise to ask to sit closer to the entrance if anyone in your party has any physical disabilities.

Food was average and overpriced for what we had. Pork Chop and Cauliflower was dry and overcooked.

Bass Bay continues to be a family favorite for weekend evening dining - the atmosphere, while overly loud at times, allows for our family to just sit back and have a good time along a restaurant full of others who are just enjoying life. The service and food quality have never disappointed.

We went there to relax and not rush for Dinner. Ordered an appetizer, salad, dinner etc and asked the. To bring it out in stages and not to rush. All of our food came at once and wasn’t right. Ordered salad without croutons, came with croutons. No water was ever filled up, had to ask twice. Service was not good.

The steaks were not cooked as asked and the chicken fried chicken was over done. Everything tasted good but for the cost everything should be perfect.

Delightful experience as the server was full of energy and charm. She was attentive and always smiling. The food serving has been an issue in the past as the food is not served by the initial waiter/ waitress but we got the food we ordered. Half way through our brunch another serving arrived but I assured the food server that we did not order a second brunch and then he found the correct table. He was not as peppy as the initial server that took our order and attended to us. He had no energy and was difficult to understand as it sounded like he was muttering. All in all, it was very good again.

We chose to make our first visit to BBB this past Sunday. We stopped in for Brunch after hearing about it from friends in Muskego.
My wife had the Eggs Benedict, and I chose the Cherry-stuffed Cream Cheese French Toast. The presentation was done well and came out quickly for a Sunday that got busier as the meal progressed.
The Eggs Benedict had shredded ham rather than a plain, thin, ham slice. This touch was appreciated in every bite of egg and ham,
The French toast was not overly juicy with cherries so I appreciated the flavor of the fruit inside. The toast was not Texas-style but generous slices of bread.
I had grapefruit juice myself but I tasted a nice Scottish brew that invites us back for a future Friday fish fry.
The grounds have been improved according to a friend so patio dining outside next summer should be really attractive.
We will be back long before next summer!
