It's hard to choose whether to have pizza or the cod on Friday night. They are both excellent, and the soup on the salad bar has always been very good. This Friday the vegetable soup did not have its regular exceptional flavor. I think this...More

We visited on a Friday night with a group of 9. The service was fast and efficient. We had their featured Friday night all-you-can-eat fish. It was delicious and the salad bar that came with it had a great variety of offerings. Very much recommended.

A beautiful setting for a great Wisconsin supper club. The menu selection was reasonably priced, large seating area and equally large bar. I had a full rack of ribs and found them to be extremely tender and very meaty. A very nice dining experience.

Yes, they have a bar but do not have a dock for the public to pull up to, as I recall. I believe any docks around there are private.
