When you pay $9 for a hamburger you would hope you could get something along with it other than a small tub of coleslaw or potato chips. Your interaction with the staff is very mechanical as they give only the bare minimum when they interact with you...We ate our food and were ready for our check...

Just ok. Nothing special. Burgers were good tho. A little on the expensive side but every restaurant around that area seems to charge at least $10+ for a burger with chips only.

Definitely a bar/restaurant with tons of TV and noise. A fun atmosphere with friendly staff and pretty good food. A great place to watch a game.

Went for fish at Harpoon Willies, the friday night special. However,t here was nothing special about this "special". The price was pretty pricey for the meal they served. They have a prime location in Williams Bay, so, with that in mind, they are popular with tourists since there is little competition in Williams Bay. As a local, I'll drive to... More

Monday night and whether or not nobody could be bothered I don't know but it wasn't great. Food was average fair with decent pub grub but nothing memorable. Fries were actually near cold when they arrived. Server was not happy from day one and she was "having a bad day". One of our party asked for a entree to be... More

Ate here with my wife and a few friends. Typical Wisconsin bar with an outdoor screened eating area across the street from the lake (not a great view, though). I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was flavorful even without any additional bbq sauce but the portion was a bit on the small side. Wife had a burger and... More

Such a cute atmosphere with all the decorations. Service was quick and the food was wonderful. No kids menu options but they do have grilled cheese, mac and cheese and the burgers are amazing!

First time here. Sat on enclosed porch overlooking the lake. Great service . Best pork chop I have ever had served with garlic mashed potatoes. Will definitely be back

Was here on Friday night for their fish fry. It's not an "all you can eat", but a fairly good size portion of walleye, a VERY delicious potato pancake, applesauce and cole slaw for $13. If they would serve it with a slice of rye bread, it would be even better. Either way, I'd return.

We just stopped in for an appetizer and a drink. We ordered the fried calamari which were greasy and very tough. Bloody Mary's were very good.
