Let me start by saying the food is GREAT.... The Salmon Ceaser was to die for. I ate there twice in 1 week and ordered the Salmon. The second time was even better than the first. Perfectly cooked and juicy.., the waitress was Brandi and she was the best waitress I have had in a long time and we eat... More

The view from the deck at sunset is nice but service is beyond bad to just rude. We got there and the place was not very busy, maybe 5 or 6 tables of people. We sat for a long time before our waitress came to take our order, she didn’t offer to take our drink order. My husband asked if... More

My husband and I come to Geneva on the Lake and the Lakefront restaurant twice a year. We love their seafood and the deck overlooking the lake! Easy parking too, as they have their own lot for customers.

This was a very nice restaurant with a great view. The view is probably the best part of the restaurant sitting on the lake and their food would have to be amazing and i reccomend that lots of people go to this restaurant for your stay at GOTL atleast oncee to try their yummy food and enjoy a nice old...

We visit GOTL several times a year but never have eaten at this "restaurant". We were there during Thunder this past weekend and we were all sick of bar food so we decided to eat here because I have heard about the deck. We got a table almost instantly and our first drinks, but that was when things went down... More

I have read some of the reviews here that are terrible but our experience has always been very good. Our hiking club comes to Geneva-on-the Lake every September because it is less crowded and the weather is so nice. After hiking in the State Park we head over to this restaurant because the view is so nice - there is... More

Spent a few days at GOTL for a little rest and relaxation. We had several nice meals during the trip but The Lakefront certainly was NOT one of them.The only positive this place can boast is the view. The deck is directly on the water and the sunsets are amazing. This place is a perfect candidate for Robert Irvine's "Restaurant... More

On a very busy summer's evening, we were able to get seated quickly on the enormous outdoor deck, which we enjoyed all evening. The wait staff were terrific, quick to get orders placed even though the place had some very large parties. There is a good variety of dishes, especially if you like seafood and Italian. I opted for the... More

We were very impressed that you could sit out on the deck right on top of the water and the view was very pretty but it took us over an hour to get our food. We had people on either side of us come in and order after us, get their food and be almost done before we even got... More
