Nothing special here. Service, drinks and food were all OK. The munu does offer a wide range of selections. I tried the French Onion soup. It was served piping hot and taste good, but was loaded with salt, too much. Prime Rib for dinner was OK, fatter than most, but had a good taste. My wife tried the fried white... More

Had lunch with a family group on a Monday. What a great menu to choose from plus several daily specials that all looked delicious. Ended up ordering the broiled haddock in special butter wine sauce was absolutely delicious and at a very reasonable price. Everyone in our party was happy with there selections. Defiantly recommend eating at this restaurant.

Great atmosphere great food. The blackened haddock was amazing. Fun to have something different in an area where fish fries are so common.

I had the most wonderful and juicy Lamb burger. It was fixed to perfection. My husband had a Cajun prime rib dinner and had to take some home. Waitress was very friendly and we were seated in a room with only one other couple. It made for a nice quiet evening.

Met the family for St. Patricks day dinner. The meal tasted like it had been reheated and the vegetables were mush. Even my brother in laws hamburger was bad. Service was a little slow, and we haven't been back.

The best restaurant in Waupaca, WI to go for a fantastic meal. They have been around for years and that is the place to go for steak, seafood, and all sorts of fish. You will not leave hungry and I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!! Full bar, fireside dining, outdoor seating, and yummy desserts.
