We live nearby and have visited here 3 times and won't again unless it has new management. Two of the three times the servers were slow or snobby (we didn't go when it was very busy.) I ordered an item with avocado- I love avocados- and it came without avocados! I guess they were out but didn't bother to tell... More

This past Labor Day weekend in Lake Geneva drew large crowds with waits up to two hours at restaurants. Because of 5 young children in our party, we chose this restaurant as the parking lot was not filled. We should have known then. Our nachos were burnt but the cheese curds were great. Of the six adult meals only one... More

We haven't been to the waterfront in a year or more and what a change. The booth was in disrepair. The table finish was coming off and the seat was full of tiny cracks that pinched my legs and I had to put my sweater on it to be mildly comfortable. We ordered beer and they ran out of one... More

Home is a northern suburb of Chicago. Traveled many times to Lake Geneva and Delavan area. Stopped by the Waterfront. On Sunday. What a wonderful find. The Bloody Marys are well prepared and come with lots of munchies. However, its followed by a beer chaser! Yes, you can choose one of their offered beers and low and behold you receive... More

Was looking for a spot to take my mom for lunch and decided on the Waterfront. It was a Tuesday and the restaurant was not busy, but the service was slow. I ordered a fish sandwich that came with more bread than fish and had so many bones that I could not eat it. My mom ordered an appetizer that... More

Had pleasant service and a tasty meal. If you're looking for appetizers and beer...this is a good place to stop. Not sure I'd come back.

The food here is good and prices are reasonable. Watch out for the door as you're leaving-it's a single door that one of my party mistook for a double and ran into a window!
