We always gothere for lunch when we travel to Lake Geneva. The food is well above average, the service is excellent, the atmosphere is high end, and the view is spectacular. All this at reasonable prices.

For as beautiful as the Geneva Inn is, this restaurant definitely lacks. The best items on the menu were out at 7pm which is not acceptable considering there were only seven entree choices. The presentation was poor and the dessert selection ordinary. So much more could be done. For the price I would recommend going elsewhere

Thank you for your kind comments regarding the beauty of The Geneva Inn!
We are sorry that you were disappointed with your entree choices; we prepare all of our food using fresh ingredients and it is unfortunate that your choices were limited.
We do hope you will give us another chance, and we hope to win you back.

Without dispute, the lake view from the Grandview is lovely. The large picture windows give pretty much any table in the restaurant a good vantage point.

The Geneva Inn is NOT in the main downtown area, nor is it walkable from downtown. It is located a short drive, maybe 10 minutes, around the east side of the lake. I mention this not as a drawback, but because I somehow assumed it was downtown, and I want other readers to be aware.

We were a group of four 40-something women having Sunday brunch to top off our girls' weekend. We arrived right at 10:30, which is when the Sunday brunch starts. For a while, we definitely were the youngest group in the restaurant by a couple of decades. Eventually, other groups, including families with children, brought the median age down.

Service was fine, though coffee refills were a bit slow. The food, too, was fine - everything was good, but I (for one) didn't find my dish (pancakes with blueberries) particularly memorable. Portions were more than adequate, especially for my friends who ordered the three-course brunch - which comes on top of the glass of champagne and appetizer of fresh fruit and a slice of a sweet bread with strawberry cream cheese. Everyone was stuffed by the end.

Thank you for commenting on the fact that our location and panoramic windows feature amazing views from any table!
We are located 2 1/2 miles from downtown, about a 5 minute drive, and we do have guests who walk from downtown! The hike takes about 45 minutes along the lake, a great way to see the lakefront homes up close.
Our Sunday Champagne Brunch menu offers many great options, such as Croissant French Toast, Vegetarian Quiche, Chicken Cobb Salad, Salmon Cake Benedict, Prosciutto Omelette and Rainbow Trout... and yes, everybody gets a glass of Champagne!
We look forward to having you visit again!

Called ahead for reservations for our anniversary. They had a nice anniversary card on our table, they gave us a complimentary glass of champagne and we had a lake view. Dinner was great and service excellent.

We were very impressed with the service we received. In addition, the food was excellent. We did not eat anything that was not good. While the it is a bit spendy, it is also convenient.

We encourage you to also visit us for Breakfast, with entrees priced $6-$9. We also feature small plate options and lighter fare for a quick bite or more casual experience in our Lounge (open daily year round) and on our lakeside patio in the summer months.
