“Meh...”

Clearview Supper Club
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Located at a rustic site on the north shore of Big St. Germain Lake, the Clearview Supper Club proclaims on the front of its menu that it has been serving customers since 1918. I wish I could report that like a fine wine, the place gets better and better with age, but a recent visit couldn't confirm that notion. I had walleye and got a small piece of minimally seasoned fish, served with a cup of melted butter for $18.95. The accompanying wild rice was bland and mushy. My wife's experience with the night's shrimp special was similar. She was somewhat taken aback by the small size of the bowl her garlic mashed potatoes were served in. Service was fine. Located on the backside of a condo development with the lake barely visible through the intervening hodgepodge of buildings, the view from the restaurant is not as dramatic as one would hope. On this night at least, we thought about other choices we could have made on our last night in the Northwoods for the summer.

The nostalgia and beauty of this place is great. We ate early on a Sunday evening. I wouldn't recommend the food at all. Hopefully this was a real off night with maybe a substitute chef. The ribs were quite chewy and barely any sauce, a bit porky tasting, the ahi tuna was supposed to be cooked medium and while I like mine a bit to the medium rare this was still cold inside and the vegetable bed it sat on was soggy and over cooked. Chris at the bar is an asset to the place. I would say it was worth stopping into for the decor and nostalgic feel, maybe have a glass of wine but in the future we will take our dinner dollars elsewhere

Been going to the St. Germain area for 30 plus years. Twice now have had horrible experience at Clearview. This last trip we went in only 4 people in bar and dining room half full. Were told by hostess it would be a 15 minute wait only two in our party. Ok, no big deal went to bar sat down ordered a drink. Three other groups come in after us all are seated immediately. No big deal thought maybe other groups had reservations. Three more groups come in 2 are parties of 2 and one party of 6. They are told there will be a 15 minute wait. At this point we have been waiting 25 minutes. The hostess then comes out and takes one of the other parties of 2 and the party of 6 back...while we still are waiting. Asked she responds your still on the list now sitting at 35 minutes. OBVIOUSLY it is who you are and who you know in order to get a table! Another thing the place smells very musty NOT a place to go if you have allergies!

WOW, what a memorable dinner my wife and I had at this restaurant. The pork that I ordered was wrapped in bacon and was as tender as butter. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly. Dinner rolls and salad were outstanding, we plan on revisiting CLEARVIEW many times in the future.

We head over to Clearview each time we are up North. This time we had a disappointing experience. They do not take reservations. We sent two members of our party of nine ahead to put our name in. Apparently, just before the balance of the group arrived the table was given away, so we had a 15 minute wait. Our group was split into two tables. Our daughter's fish was fraught with bones (the waitress said "it's fish, so you have to expect that" and her fiancé's fish was undercooked. She did not reappear in a timely fashion for it to be sent back. Given the many other dining options, not sure we'll be back.
