Stopped in on a Friday night. Resort had 4 weddings booked for the weekend and there was one, maybe 2 servers. Cheese curds appeared freezer burnt. Should be a crime in this state. Chicken fingers obviously cooked in same grease as fish. Kids wouldn't touch them.

Three of us decided to smorgasbord for a light dinner, ordering wings, Caesar salad and nachos. All was freshly prepared and appropriately hot or cold. The nachos were especially good, piled high with toppings and cheese sauce......not like most that eave you with mostly dry chips after the first few. Service was prompt and efficient.

There is a good bar with a fire pit outside. There are many outside tables so you can eat outside weather permitting. There is just a small basic menu.

Don't get me wrong. We had a great four-day, three-night vacation at the Heidel House Resort. But there were so many things that could have been so much better had the resort managers really listen to their guests and the past reviews. For instance, The Boat House Pub had a really crabby bartender Monday afternoon. You can just tell she... More

This is a place that, in good weather, serves either outside on the patio, or inside. Either way, you can't miss the spectacular view of Green Lake. Linda and I ate dinner here twice, the first night of our stay, and the last. The food, although not particularly imaginative, was well prepared, tasty, and plentiful. I had very spicy wings...

See review of Heidel house to see more detail. Bar service seemed slow, food was less than stellar (although my husband didn't mind it). Not sure about kids menu but considering adult (regular menu) options I wouldn't see MY kids being pleased dining here.

We stopped here for supper as we saw online that it was Tiki Tuesday. The male server who seated us - did not leave us with menus, did not say a word about "Tiki Tuesday" - no mention of specials - nothing - just put us at a table. Eventually our server came over - her name was Katrina -... More

Great view of the Mississippi. I have several place I wanted to eat but being a Monday most were closed. We checked this place out and the food was delicious. My husband had the cheese curd burger and said it was amazing.
