We stopped in after a day in the Spa. The menu was mainly bar food but due to their own smoker out back, the chicken I had and my husband's brisket sliders were very good. We were seated in the back along the windows which would b great in the summer. They ended up having a party in the bar... More

Resturant/bar in a resort. We stayed for 2 midweek days at the hotel. Resort pricing, as expected. Beautiful harbor view, but we did visit in winter. Wednesday late afternoon. Drinks and burgers. Great beer selection. Burgers were 5 star. Get the sweet potatoes fries. Thursday night for cocktails. Not crowded being during the week. Waitress was far from accommodating, which... More

Wanted something simple for the evening, had a lot of choices, had grilled fish tacos, very good. Sister-in-law had beef brisket tacos, a little unusual but she said they also were very good.

This is the Abbey's casual restaurant. We came during President'sDay weekend and the place was packed on Friday night. Great place to bring the kids. Prices are more reasonable than 240 and I don't think the food quality is any less. So we ended up coming each night for dinner!

I would visit this restaurant even if I weren't staying at the resort. The service was attentive. The salmon salad was grilled well and juicy. It had great flavor and the romaine was crisp and fresh with the right amount of dressing. The BBQ ribs and angus burger my husband ate were cooked perfectly (and my husband is a very... More

Description
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 or drinks. We use the techniques of award-winning Pitmaster Matt Whiteford to create specialties like the Waterfront's famous mouthwatering barbecue, salads and wraps . The Friday Fish Fry is a fun and delicious experience, especially when there's live entertainment. And did we mention drinks? From Wisconsin's own Spotted Cow beer to signature cocktails like the Bloody Mary with a touch of bacon (yes, bacon!), you're in for a one-of-a-kind experience. There's also a full children's menu and take-out.
