A wonderful place to eat and enjoy Browns lake. Excellent cocktails. If you like thin crust pizza, this is the place to go. They have daily specials also. Fish Fry Friday, Prime Rib on Saturday.

Ordered the special for the day, soup and half a sandwich. The soup was very standard, large chunks of canned tomatoes, potatoes and carrots, along with other vegetables, and a thin chicken broth with very little flavor. There was supposed to be chicken in the soup, but by the "luck of the ladle" I must have missed out. I also... More

While it's wonderful to hear how much you enjoyed the evening by the fire with a lovely view and great service, I'm sad that you didn't find your meal to be up to your standards--or ours.

We had dinner here for our anniversary. They had a special menu for Mardi Gras so we tried the boudin stuffed mushrooms. They were ok. We had hurricanes to drink. They weren't "New Orleans" hurricanes, tasted like they were made from a big batch. My chicken was very good, and my husband said his steak was pretty good.

Thank jconcienne
Management response:

It was wonderful to have you two celebrate your anniversary at our place, and I'm so glad you enjoyed every dish you had. Sorry if the drinks weren't up to the same high level for you, though. We'll work hard to make sure you're impressed with everything across the board next time you stop in! See you soon, Tanya P. More

We went to the Waterfront on a Friday evening to take my sister and brother in-law for fish. They miss fish frys in their world travels and are always happy to be here on a Friday. We were very pleased with the service, welcoming attitude, and the delicious meal. The baked fish is one of the best in the area.... More

My family and I had a lovely evening at the Waterfront. The setting is lovely, the views of the lake were very calming and relaxing...even though it was snowing like crazy outside. The service was top notch and the food was delicious. Definitely one of the best spots in the area.

The service is hard to beat. The food, on a scale of 1 - 5 is a 4-1/2. It's not the best I've ever had, but it's damn good. If I lived closer, I'd go more often. And the view is beautiful! Prices are very reasonable and portions are generous.

No matter the weather, it’s easy to relax lakeside at The Waterfront on Brown's Lake. Pull up by boat or lounge on our patio when it’s warm -- or stay cozy and enjoy the view from inside in the winter. With daytime specials, seasonal offerings, and holiday menus, we love serving our guests the very best homemade fare year-round -- and from our fish fry to our filet mignon, we’ve got something for everyone in the family, even the little ones with Kid's Day every Monday! Our modern supper club is full of Wisconsin charm and friendly faces.
