Reviewed 22 January 2017 via mobile

Was there last pm with a date. I live in watertown and the setting and view is great.
First i ordered a old fashioned ...whatever it was...... was not a old fashioned. (Wi traditional drink right)?????
Limited menu ...salads, sandwiches pizza...i expected more supper club type foods.
Asked bout prime rib sandwich...told like a french dip. Yikes...meat tough on toasted sliced bread.

Very disappointing.

The owners are very welcoming. Love the Northwoods lodge feel of the place. Prices are decent, but the food really is just average. Nothing to brag about. But, it's good if you have a big group or want to sit outside in nice weather.

We were here on a Friday night and all had the "all you can eat" fish fry. The food was great and the service was even better! We'd go back again in a heartbeat.

One can tell a great fish fry place when it's packed. this place was fairly empty for a Friday night. we were offered the deck seating for the view, although it would have been better if they took care of the landscaping. The waiter for the tables was also their bartender which made for very poor service. The table behind us had a waitress, but she didn't tend to us at all even though we were the only two tables with people in the room. Our food was cold when we got it. The cold potato pancakes were doughy, too much flour, and the worst I have ever had. The baked cod fish portion was tiny, and for its small size one would expect it to at least be cooked all the way thru. It was not. It was ice cold, not flaky, and inedible. The waiter/bartender lowered our check to the 7.95 Pollock fish fry price. No manager to talk to. Should have just charged for the coleslaw, it was the only thing half edible on the plate. This is on my worsts lists. I would suggest others put it on their avoids list and save your hard earned money.

We stopped into this restaurant and headed directly to the bar recently for drinks and some snacks. We were very happy!

Our table overlooked the water and the AC was nice and cool on a 90 degree Wisconsin day. The bartender was also waiting tables and he was quick and efficient.

The specialty drinks were delicious and cheap. $6 for a martini?
The beer list was a mile long. $5

We had the creamier cheese curds and the fried pickles. They were both delicious.

Some folks at our table shared a huge prime rib and it looked like they loved every bite. We had a wedge salad which was uneventful and the iceberg lettuce looked old and tired, ate most of it anyway.

$90 for 5 folks. We had 7 alcohol drinks from the bar, one soda. The food was the queen (24oz) prime rib, 2 wedge salads and the pickles and curds.

Definitely was a great time and we definitely would go back if we are in the area.
