    Great dining experience as always at Walloon Lake Inn! We dined with another couple and all four of us ordered something different. Each dish was delicious! We ordered truffle fries, calamari, beet salad, fish, pasta and two different steaks. Everyone was satisfied with their choices. Dessert was also great. Crème brûlée and turtle cheesecake are a must. The service was impeccable as usual. We will be returning!

    The Walloon Lake Inn never disappoints. We love this place. The staff are amazing. They all work together to be sure your experience is top notch. The Manager Melissa is always active on the floor doing whatever is necessary for an enjoyable meal. Kate was our server. She was very kind and attentive. Kayla behind the bar always has a smile with exceptional service. Last but not least the legendary piano man “Doc” sets the scene with incredible talent on the keyboard.

    Great overall experience. Love WLI. Really liked the 3/$60 deal and as usual drinks and food were outstanding. Our waitress was very friendly. Only small complaint, it was too obvious they wanted us gone in 2 hrs. Telling us our reservation is only 5:45-7:45 is sort of tacky (that occurred when they confirmed our reservation the day before). We arrived 5 mins early and ended up being done 10 mins early. Looking forward to being back in the summer!😎

    We dine here often, and it’s always exceptional. However, that evenings experience, we were disappointed in all of our courses. The calamari had too much sweet sauce on it and too much batter. My Caesar salad, unlike, my sons had just the dark green tips which did not hold onto the dressing very well. My husband and I both had the whitefish which we’ve had before. This time it was very bland. Not sure if the chef was away on vacation or something but we were overall disappointed in the taste of our food. However, the service was excellent.

    This place is the best! The food was to die for and the service was outstanding. My husband had ravioli appetizer and the filet. I had the ahi tuna appetizer (which was huge) and seafood risotto. We both had creme brule for dessert. We have not had such a delicious meal in a long time. I will definitely go again when we have the opportunity.
