Good was good service little slow considering we were the only ones there. They did both have our first choice for drinks or food so that was disappointing. They should let you know that ahead of time since 1 was a tap beer and the other a Rueben sandwich. Menu is not that big .

The food was good. I think it was a little expensive for what you received, but otherwise good.

My friend and I went to the restaurant for our birthdays. We ordered two entrees because we had a buy one get one free card. My friend's meal was overcooked and not edible. They gladly replaced her entrée with another. The staff went out of their way to take care of the situation. We will be back.

Priced high. One partys steak was tough. Ala cart salad serving size was small. Waitress was great and outgoing.

After patronizing the Radisson RBG on a regular basis, we were exited to try the Waterlin. We stopped in on a Saturday for lunch and were pleased with the new menu. Both items tried were great, and Allison was an exceptional host. I made reservations for six for the following Friday to try the fish fry and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the dishes. We tried the perch, walleye and the blue gill special; all three were absolutely excellent.

Will be returning often.

Really Just ok
Service was slow
Flatbread with pear would have been better with feta instead of Gorgonzola and dressed arugula placed just prior to serving

Great to have a one-of-a-kind dining destination in Menomonee Falls! We had a very large party and the accommodations were comfortable and the staff was very attentive. We all found the truly Wisconsin menu delicious. Loved the decor - a nod to the village's river roots. This will be our go-to place to dine with out-of-town guests.
