There wasn't a lot open at this time of year, but we ran across this place. They served a nice lunch and were very attentive. If I'm back in the Waupaca area, I would definitely eat here again.

Great meal, great drinks, great atmosphere. The menu had so many choices. The outside deck was the place to be on a very warm September weekend in Waupaca. This was a town that I could get a hotel for the Packer/Viking game. Was surprised at...More

I think most people enjoy the atmosphere and sitting by the water at Clear Water Harbor way better than they enjoy their food. The food at Clear Water Harbor is consistently average. Their menu consists largely of bar or comfort food. Clear Water is a...More

The main attraction is being able to dine on the waterfront deck, but the inside is nice too - natural wood, historic photos of the Chain of Lakes. The menu is extensive, with several seafood options, salads, and burgers. The vegetarian entrees aren't inspired, but...More

Since it is mid-summer, there are a lot of tourists out for the lake cruise rides, so the noise level inside was a bit too much for us. Fortunately, they do have seating outside and it was a beautiful day. However, the service time was...More

We went with another couple and had a variety of their fish meals. Baked haddock, salmon and their cod fish fry. All were very good. Busy, party type atmosphere - a lot of fun.

Beautiful spot on the water, food is average. When I come to Waupaca it isn't the first place I think of to go eat. Don't get me wrong, very popular with the socialite club, but not worth the money or crowd. Tourists love it, you...More

Have been here several times and never been disappointed. Always good food, good drink, nice view of the water. Sometimes the music is a little loud for conversation but quieter inside than out.
