We ate on the patio for a late lunch. There was no one there but it was nice and clean. I had fish & chips and my husband at the mac & cheese. Good drink specials and fun outdoor bar.

We are now entering our 14th year here in Lake Geneva and i can tell you the Fish & Chips are very good as you say but the Mac & Cheese has been our biggest request this year along with the Cowboy burger. Thanks for the kind comments! More

We chose this place because they delivered to our cottage and the food was very good and the delivery was fast. They have a wide selection to choose from on their menu.

Okay my issue was with the amount of Italian fair. This was an Italian restaurant but there were only 2 Italian entrees. I had spaghetti and meatballs. It was good and was homemade.

Stopped in for lunch, they weren't to busy so we were seated quickly. The food came out quick and was exactly what we ordered. The burgers are big and juicy and my wife had the salad which she enjoyed. I would probably stop back in for lunch.

Stopped on for lunch and decided to sit on the patio. When you focus on the perimeter of this space, it's really cool, with the building exterior being made of lengthwise ripped raw planks from local trees, and the opposite side bounded by the next building and a lower garden wall, both covered with thick vine cover. The menu had... More

A decent place to go. I was fairly generic food. The fish fry certainly wasn't Hand-breaded but was commercially purchased. Service is okay but very friendly. The price is good for Lake Geneva. They Can handle large groups very successfully

We had a staff conference in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin this past weekend June 3-5 We chose Carvetti's because we were going to the Magic Show across the street and walking with 15 people is easier.
