We currently don't take online reservations, please call (262)275-9000 for availability.
The Abbey Resort's very own Waterfront restaurant is known for its casual, laid-back vibe. It's the perfect place to unwind, either on the patio or indoors, and serves lunch, dinner, and drinks.
We use the techniques of award-winning Pit Master Matt Whiteford to create specialties like Smoked BBQ Quesadillas and the BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich. Our menu doesn’t end there, try something new and unique with our Chimichurri Sirloin or Salmon Waldorf Salad.
The Friday Fish Fry is a fun and delicious Wisconsin tradition, especially when there's live entertainment. We also offer a full children's menu and take-out. And did we mention drinks? Pair any item from our enticing menu with a craft beer or one of our signature cocktails, and you're in for a one-of-a-kind experience.

    The bar area was fairly filled with football fans to watch the last game of the season. Our waiter was attentive and had recommendations for myself, my daughter and her friend. He also reminded us of the half-price appetizers for that evening which were a bargain. The crab cakes were delicious, and the nachos, quesadillas and fried platter were also very good. My one complaint was the temperature in the restaurant. It was a cold evening outside, but the heat should have been turned up. Most of the adults kept their coats and sweatshirts on. Our food got cold very quickly, but overall we had a very nice experience in a fun atmosphere.

    We were traveling and staying in the area. Because of the waterfront view, we decided to try the Waterfront at the Abbey - the girls were pleased with the view and the guys liked all the televisions for sports viewing. Our server did a great job suggesting food items to try and describing flavors.

    I understand that restaurants like this are typically staffed seasonally for the summer prime months with younger/less experienced wait staff. However, we were pretty disappointed in the service. Because we stayed at the hotel, my husband and I ate there twice with our two kids (young toddlers). The first visit was ok, nothing to complain about except for a high chair that looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. The second visit, however, was terrible. The waiter "lost our drink order" - it was three waters and a beer.... couldn't you remember that? For such a nice hotel, we would have expected much better.

    Very noisy place although not even half full. I had requested table not close to a door that is being used and guess what they walked me right to a table by a door that was constantly used. Since there were so man open tables we could find another on away from the door.

    Nice dockside restaurant at the Abbey Resort. Good selection of burgers, sandwiches, salads, etc. Kid friendly with a decent menu for little ones. Prices are reasonable.

    It was simple and basic. We were looking for a fish fry and got it. Have been there several times over the last few years as The Abbey is a bit of a childhood memory thing. This restaurant area could improve a bit. We will keeping coming back.

    BBQ is excellent as well as the fish tacos. We loved the food and the apple crisp dessert was amazing!

    Food was pretty good, but the service was pretty bad. Took forever to even get a waiter or waitress, and it didnt get any better after we ordered our food.

    I just have to say that the Manager and Waitstaff was AMAZING! We had 30 reserved seats and all of my Team Members were raving about the food and service. They said they definitely felt like they were VIP. Thank you so much!
