Our first time at The Waterfront Restaurant on Browns Lake in Burlington, Wi. Beautiful restaurant, great food, exceptional service and full length windows overlooking the lake. We will definitely be back again and very soon!

We went to the Waterfront on a Friday evening to take my sister and brother in-law for fish. They miss fish frys in their world travels and are always happy to be here on a Friday. We were very pleased with the service, welcoming attitude, and the delicious meal. The baked fish is one of the best in the area.... More

My family and I had a lovely evening at the Waterfront. The setting is lovely, the views of the lake were very calming and relaxing...even though it was snowing like crazy outside. The service was top notch and the food was delicious. Definitely one of the best spots in the area.

Nice, casual, family friendly restaurant. Very nice views of the lake. Service good be a little better, but that won't stop us from returning.

The service is hard to beat. The food, on a scale of 1 - 5 is a 4-1/2. It's not the best I've ever had, but it's damn good. If I lived closer, I'd go more often. And the view is beautiful! Prices are very reasonable and portions are generous.

This place has you covered no matter what kind of dining atmosphere you're looking for! The upper level has a bar room adjacent to a fine dining atmosphere with a lake view. The lower level has an informal bar with tables for casual dining which also leads you to the outdoor bar level for drinks and appetizers and that section... More

The Waterfront has a great dining room, but during the summer, it's nice to enjoy the patio on the shore of Browns Lake. There was live music while we dined on a Sunday evening that added to the very pleasant atmosphere. It was a perfect volume so we could carry on a conversation while listening to the music. The food... More

LOVED it! Wished we could have sat outside, but patio isn't open until Memorial Day weekend or afterward. Gorgeous view overlooking the lake, great food, fun bar. Will return so we can try other things on the menu. Would recommend. Heard they have music Friday and Saturday nights and on Sunday afternoons on the patio.

It's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed everything about your visit with us, and I'm so glad you loved the food and the view. Hope you've been back to see us since to try some more things on the menu! Music on the patio starts soon! This year "Tunes on Tuesday" from 6pm - 9pm and on Saturday evenings and... More

Consistence food and view of the lake to enjoy. Eating upstairs is fine but the patio downstairs also has a great view and better vibe. Nice fire bit and live music occasionally.

Thank Craig C
