Lake Street Cafe has the most fantastic food, and the atmosphere is fun. You feel like you are in a different world! Love it.

We parked our bikes out front and stopped in for a delicious burger with house made chips (baby reds and sweet potato) they are not coated and they are cooked in peanut oil and tossed with sea salt. Very, very good. The atmosphere is fun...More

Love this place..especially the more formal dining room. Delicious steaks and service are out of this world! Great selections of wines too! Will be back every year for a fine dinner!

We just came back from a visit to Elkhart Lake. While we were there we dined at the lake street café. I had read that the reviews and when I went in it was not what I was anticipating. Apparently there are two sides of...More

Stopped in Saturday for lunch. Italian panini and salmon salad sandwiches were great, flavorful and nicely done. Casual lunch with great food and homemade chips at a good price.

I've eaten at this restaurant 15 times in the past year. They have great food. I've tried 5 different meals and it's all been great. The steak is a really nice piece of beef. I would highly recommend this place. Great food and great service.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
My family is flying in from FL and we are renting a house for 4 days this weekend. They are native Wisconsinites and haven't been home for over 15 years so they want to go out for a Friday fish fry. Would you please tell me what kind of fish you serve, what is included on your fish fry's and the prices? Do you serve broiled or baked fish also? I want to share the interesting fact that we are all in our 50's and as young children in the early 60's we grew up in Elkhart Lake. We lived above your place! It was an apartment above a grocery store at the time called "Peter's Market". So as you can imagine, your place already has some significant appeal to us so we want to come check your place out this weekend. Thanks for your time.
