It was a horrible experience even trying to find the place. The private rd to get there was under construction and filled with huge potholes. It was miles of this to only get to a gate that wouldn’t allow us to go any further. No signs for the restaurant and very dark. We were beyond disappointed.
Birthday. First time at this restaurant in the club house of Geneva National golf course. The food was amazing. We tried the squash maple sausage soup, the whitefish dip, the smoked chili, the harvest salad, the blacked whitefish tacos, the smoked brisket sandwich, the smoked pecan pie and the door county cherry ice cream. All excellent.
Spent a weekend at Lake Geneva and dscovered urf.Smokehouse on Open table so gave it a try. We had such a great lunch on Friday, we returned Sunday for another go. Both days were great. Great views and wonderful, freindly staff made it apleasure both times. Recomend the brisket but the ribs were very tender as well. Having a choice of BBQ sauces at the table is the way its supposed to be! Even the salads were excellent. Don't let the ongoing road construction deter you!
Great flavors and loved the smoky bbq. Order the brisket tip bruschetta for sure. Gluten free knowledge could have been better.
We had a lovely time! The food was fabulous and our server Jennifer was very helpful. We highly recommend the cheese curds and anything with the brisket! We will definitely be dining here again!
A hidden gem. Good food and drinks. Not too loud.
The bread used in the appetizer and sandwhich were oily and tasted odd. Food was overpriced. The atmosphere was decent.
The food was excellent and their barbecue sauces were top notch.
Food and atmosphere was great!! We don’t live in the area but we will definitely be back! It was laid back and relaxed. The food was so good and you got a nice portion for the price. We visited on our anniversary. I requested a “happy Anniversary “ drawn in chocolate on our dessert plate and they did that. The only thing that could’ve been a bit better was the service- the waitress didn’t really go above and beyond at all or even say “happy Anniversary “ to us at all. She wasn’t very personable,Which I guess is a personal preference/suggestion- nothing against the restaurant! Highly recommend.
We had reservations at 7:00 for 8 people. We were not told the kitchen closes at 8:00 and the waitress did not ask us if we needed anything before the kitchen closed. So no dessert. Out bill was 360.00 with gratuity; which I would not have had a problem with if the service was better. There was only 1 other table with a large group and 2 small tables being used. This is our 2nd time here and I will wait a while before we go back again. The food is fantastic and the place has a great atmosphere; hopefully the service will get better.
Delicious food. Great view. Will be going back every time in area.
GREAT service and food was very good. Looking for good BBQ in Lake Geneva area - this is the place. Was a little loud when the golfers came in but they offered to move us and honestly ended up being a great experience
We had a small issue with our server. She told us we could choose any side, we didn't ask she offered that information, but she didn't mention that changing the sides costs an additional $4 each. She also overcharged me for my wine by $4 which is partially my fault because I didn't catch it until I got home, so two sandwiches and a glass of wine cost me $51. The service was fine and the view was beautiful but I felt the cost for two average sandwiches was exorbitant.
Sat outside on deck, gorgeous lake and golf course views.
All tables were dirty, lots of flies and bees.
We had checked breakfast menu in advance, called and double-checked they were serving breakfast. There were THREE items only. Very disappointing, breakfast burrito was decent, sauces helped..
Server very friendly.
Get the All About Smoke tray--phenomenal and you get a taste of everything.
The smoked whitefish dip is out of this world.
However, as much as we all really liked this place, I had put a special order in for a small desert to be used as a birthday cake. They were surprised (even though it was on the reservation) and came up with something at the last moment. Good thing I brought the candles.
We had a nice dinner with some friends. The view was incredible, the service took a little long but the food was worth it. For the cooler evenings, it would be a nice touch to have some blankets available for people who prefer to sit outside due to Covid.
I’ve eaten at Turf several times now, and must say it is consistently mediocre. They are perpetually understaffed, which is a common problem these days. I’d rather see a handful of professional, efficient servers struggling to keep up than numerous servers milling about with seemingly no ability to prioritize tasks and keep busy—I’ve seen both here. The food has always been good or even great, that’s the strong point, along with the lovely view, that keeps me coming back. At this point in time, it is a struggle to enjoy anything because they have a fly infestation that requires diners to either accept that their food and drinks have been contaminated by contact with these insects, or remain constantly vigilant, guarding glasses and plates. That seems like a simple problem that could easily be resolved?
Food was average. For a high end country club, the tables were worn and overall, dining area needs a refresh. Outside there were big chunks of concrete missing on the porch. It did have a nice view. We got to see 7 deer on our way out.
First time at the Turf. We were initially seated outside, but moved to bar because of inclement weather. Food was pretty good. Probably upper middle road smoked bbq. Bar staff was very friendly and on top of things. I wouldn’t recommend booking on opentable here. They had no clue we had reservations. Better call! I would recommend dining here.
No hostess in sight. No menus provided when we sat down.
Excellent service from Evie and bartender Caitlan. Delicious quesadillas and wonderful view
Turf has become our new “go to” place to eat. It is a beautiful setting to relax and enjoy excellent food and a grand view of the golf course. The outdoor patio provides a view of Lake Como in the distance. The smokehouse flavor is infused in everything. The brisket is incredibly well done. The restaurant is hard to find. There is not one sign anywhere as to the location of the restaurant. It is actually located in the basement of the clubhouse and we found it by asking staff around the golf course. We think Turf is not well known yet. When the word gets out we think it will be a winner. We had breakfast there this past weekend. Great unique choices. We will be back.
Poor service, spear yourself the food in not good at all, smoked barbecue? Not even close
Took 20 minutes just to get water and the place wasn't even half full.
Food was excellent. Beautiful views. Service was timely. Very nice
We enjoyed our dinner on the deck outside. There were a lot of flies so that was annoying but other than that we enjoyed our food. There was a fundraiser going on below so that was fun to watch. Service was great, Beautiful view from the deck.
Tons of flies in the dining room. Horrible experience
Their oven/ stove top broke on Father’s Day, we left hungry and upset
The view was spectacular and food were great. This is the club house for the golf course so pretty informal place. Service was not good but we didn't mind with the perfect view.
The setting is superb with views of the golf course. Much of the menu focuses on barbecue. I would love to see other options with less “ smoked “ influence. I would def go back with a fun group. It lends itself for gathering with friends , fun casual
I am a vegetarian and hardly ever find a decent vegetarian meal at a restaurant. I had the Charred Chickpea Tacos, and they were amazing!! The appetizers were not the same old choices that so many restaurants serve—delicious. The meat eaters also loved their meals. Service was excellent and the view is relaxing. This restaurant is my new favorite in the Lake Geneva area.
Jen made our afternoon enjoyable. The view from the patio was spectacular. The items recommended were the cheese curds and Beer Cheese soup and both held up to their reputation.
The food was almost as excellent as the view! Our waiter was friendly and prompt. One of the best spots in the area! HIGHLY Recommend!
It was nice. We sat outside food was cold when we got there but it was still a nice time
I have enjoyed this restaurant many times, and would recommend it for casual affair, however, I was very displeased that my most recent reservation was not honored. Last night, I made a reservation, drove 15 minutes to the restaurant and as I was pulling into the parking lot, I received a call and they told me they had changed their hours and not updated their account
Our waitress was incredible,
Food delicious! Dining area modern with a touch of class. Would make the trip out again
The view was beautiful and the sports on TV were entertaining. The cheese curds were delicious!
Amazing food will definitely return when in the area
It took 30 minutes total for someone to come over to our table to greet us. I had to tell the hostess 20 minutes within that 30 minutes that no one had greeted us. The server who finally did greet us was very friendly and provided decent service. The food was amazing. I wished for a resort of this nature would have had better overall service when it took over 30 minutes for us to be greeted.
