    Steak and prime rib were tough, ribeye should not be so hard to cut. Sides were bordering on cold. Unfortunately we were seated next to a extremely loud table of women who clearly had no idea they were ruining other peoples dinner with their loud obnoxious and profanity laced conversation.

    The view was amazing, but the food was just okay. The wild rice was not cooked properly and had very hard pieces of uncooked white rice in it and the raspberry chicken was not a good piece of chicken. My husband had the salmon (which he said was good), but had the same undercooked wild rice.

    We were a party of 4. The ribeye steak was very thin (probably around 1/2 inch thick) and not much on flavor. The fish tacos were mediocre. The cilantro lime coleslaw didn't have any cilantro that we could taste or see. I had asked for corn tortillas and they came out in flour. The Hawaiian chicken sandwich had a larger piece of pineapple than it had chicken. The last item was an olive burger. It literally had 3 pieces of olive on it. Very disappointed as we have been there one other time and had really good food (Spring menu) and great service. It was so disappointing this time as we had brought another couple with us and had bragged up the food.

    In previous years, the food at Bay Pointe was wonderful. However, our meals were really small and poorly prepared for the price. We could have gotten the same meals at any local sports bar with higher quality, more quantity, and a much lower price. Here’s the specifics: The caprese salad had sparse portions of the listed ingredients and had little flavor. The fish and chips had very small portions and was lukewarm upon delivery. The fried cheese curds were outstanding, but the portion size was very small for the price. With such a beautiful lake setting and such nice staff, we hope they resolve the quantity and quality issues with the food.

    Food was delicious and the waitress was very attentive. The ambiance was superior amidst the construction that's taking place as the Bay Pointe gives the entire restaurant a face lift. All in all an extremely pleasurable evening on a beautiful night at Gun Lake entertaining friends for dinner. We are simply spoiled to have such convenient access to such a fine restaurant on the lake.

    While there were plenty of tables available, there was not a table actually reserved for us. On the reservation form was a place to identify what event was being celebrated and I checked anniversary, but no mention was made of our anniversary. I commented that it was our first time to Bay Pointe but again, no mention of it. Food was plentiful but meat was not tender or flavorful. Not all the desserts on the menu were available and we had to change our selection. First impression was not good and we won't be back anytime soon.

    The hostess was EXTREMELY rude. Tried to cram 5 of us at a table for 4 (and my kids are TALL). There were plenty of open tables. We did finally switch. The service was slow &amp; it wasn’t busy. She was nice and still tipped well as we were unsure if there was any staffing shortages. Ordered the Father’s Day special Bloody Mary. Was no where near worth $15. The only “fixings” we got with it was a piece of bacon and one olive. My entree salad was very small with very few toppings. Glad I added Ahi Tuna to it. Husband got the Ribeye. It was extremely thin so it was overcooked. We’ve been several times and this was our “worst” overall experience.

    Ordered a hamburg well done. When they brought it to the table I cut in half, it was raw. Waitress took it back to the kitchen and they made another. Again…raw. How hard is it to cook a hamburg patty well done? Waitress took $10.00 of of bill. I won’t be going back.

    The website did not indicate there were be a limited menu. The food was fair. We were placed in a table in the sun, and it was very hot. The server was okay, she seemed very frazzled. Guess she was doing her best in the heat and limited help. Was charged for items that were not indicated there would be separate charge. Checking out...issues with process, and had to go stand inside it was so hot. Not the best Father's Day.

    It seemed like the kitchen was inexperienced. We ordered the prime rib and they asked how we wanted it done (isn’t prime rib supposed to come medium rare?). We also ordered the salmon and weren’t asked about how done we wanted it and it came rare and cold in the middle (and was not sushi grade). The prime rib was supposed to come with a horseradish cream sauce but they were out, didn’t tell us they were out, and then when we asked they sent containers of plain horseradish.

    What a disappointment compared to our first visit. I want to find something positive to say about the experience but it’s not possible. It took awhile for the food to come out, (not necessarily a huge deal) but the (ribeye?) was over done and cold when it finally came out (so cold the butter they top the steak with didn’t melt). The fish and chips were heavy on the breading, and also cold. We would have let our waiter know but we barely saw him. We still decided to get dessert because our first experience was good. I love crème brûlée, it’s usually my favorite… The crème brûlée here needed a couple of fresh berries, and was barely caramelized. Raw sugar was all around the edges, nobody wants to eat raw sugar. I didn’t finish it! We also ordered a peach cobbler, we were informed 10 minutes later they were out. It was extremely cold inside and if we’d known there was construction we definitely would’ve chosen the deck instead. I don’t think we would come back.

    Food was great… our server did good for her first week off of training.. raspberry chicken was tasty, but, the skin on the chicken was not cooked long enough and it was rubbery. My mom in law had the same dish and the same problem. But it tasted very good. The other issue I had was that I was not aware of the construction. We sat inside because of may flies, and all the windows were covered in paper as to not see all The construction equipment. There wasn’t any info given about the construction, and it was just a bummer . Of course we will be back.. just may be a while

    Spoke with the waiter and asked to be moved because we were celebrating a 80th and 83 year olds birthday and it was to cold in our seats. He came back and said it wasn’t possible. The male waiter was terrible but new. It was the worst experience there ever. My wife’s ribeye was salty like someone dropped the salt shaker on it! We put in our comments what was special about our visit and no one recognized there special birthdays not even a bowl of ice cream. I’ll have to go somewhere else for special occasions but do plan on call their management team on Monday!

    We had been here in the past for a Thanksgiving meal, and it was wonderful. This time.... First let me start by saying for $45 a person, we were shocked. For that amount, there should have been prime rib being sliced for each guest The only meat they had was like a pot roast beef that was dry, and chicken breast in a sauce. The variety of food was basic. The desserts we also dry, like they'd been sitting out for a long time, and we had an early reservation. Honesty, I'm not normally a complainer, and I always try to look for the best to give good reviews, but this was a difficult one. I feel this needed to be said. Eight people, (three were young teenagers that eight basically nothing) two glasses of wine, two manosa's, after a tip, the bill was almost $500.
