“One of the best prime rib I've ever had”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

I travel the world and have rarely had a better prime rib. Tender and very flavorful. The breaded fish my wife had was also very good. Not at all greasy like most Wisconsin fish frys. Facility looks newly remodeled. Tables widely spaced, not too noisy like many restaurants. Manager was very friendly and stopped by the table to chat. Ask for a table on the patio if the weather permits, the view is great. Waiter could have paid more attention to our water glasses. Otherwise, highly recommended. btw, did I mention this was one of the best prime rib I've ever had?

“Impressive salad bar!”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

For the $14.99 price I was worried as it is at the top of the price range for a fish fry but there was plenty of food -I needed a take home box. The salad bar and soup were delicious with options and flavorful dressings. The dining room was large which caused it to be loud and our waitress took awhile to get our second drinks to the table, although she was training so I will give her some slack. We will definatley be going back!

I am so happy you enjoyed your Friday Fish Fry and large assortment of items on our salad bar. Because of the summer season recently starting, employee training was taking place. Thank you for understanding that situation. Hopefully we will see you again soon for another Friday Fish Fry! Take care and thank you for the review!

“Outstanding food in a beautiful restaurant with lovely golf course views”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

We arrived at lunch time as we like to have our big meal in the afternoon. Only golfers at the bar, but we were accommodated at a table with a lovely spring view. Our server was very gracious and happily handled all our needs. We had the fish fry which is more upscale than most. Soup or salad with choice of dressing, pretzel style roll with butter, choice of fried or baked fish and choice of baked potato, fries or jasmine rice with a delicious sauce and green onion tops. Asparagus spears for vegetable. What a great meal! We will return. Thanks

“Beautiful large Resturant with very good food”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

Large Restuarant at a golf cource with very nice atmosphere. If it's nice out you can eat outside with view of beautiful golf course. Best deal in town is there Friday night Fish Fry. For $12.99 you get an excellent meal in a very nice place. I have had both the baked and fried fish and they are excellent. The meal includes choice of Potato or Jasime Rice with veloute sauce. all are very good you can even get sweet potato fries. You can choose between a salad and soup. The clam chowder is very good as is the salad. The meal also includes a unique Cole Slaw with Crassins, and pretzel bread. Drinks are a little high, they have 2 for 1 happy hour 4pm -5:30pm
