This is a favorite in Sheboygan county. The "bar side" of the restaurant has a different menu than the fancy side. I have enjoyed both, however we prefer the bar side. The entrees are different and delicious, not just burgers and fries or your typical bar food. I always get a wonderful glass of wine based on recommendations of the... More

We have eaten here many times and always enjoy the food. This experience was no different. Our server was quite confused & brought the wrong drinks a couple times but the steak, pork chop & scallops were had were all delicious. The dessert we got was rather burnt but otherwise it was a great meal!

Just stopped in for drinks after a day at Road America. Didn't have time to eat but will return because the menu looked good and the few plates we say being served looked mighty tasty. Cool atmosphere with lots of signs, posters, etc. Looks like a really fun place during season.

A trip to Road America would not be the same without heading to the Lake Street Café. And once again they impressed me with incredible food and service. It can get crowded and they do not take reservations during the busy time so you improvise. We ordered some starters including scallops, Tuna and a Bruchetta that were all incredible. My... More

This café has a lot to choose from and everything on the menu is good. What is cool is that they glued their menus into different children's books, which is fun to read.

We went to Lake Street Cafe without a reservation AFTER calling twice and being told they didn't take reservations. We were told there was seating outside so the group starts to head outside. The outside was empty and it was awful. It was plastic tables and chairs, overgrown weeds, and just plain nasty. We came back inside and informed the... More

The service was prompt. The pizza was done well and to our liking. We have eaten here numerous times over the past 5 years.

This is my favorite restaurant in Elkhart Lake. Every time I've been there, I've had delicious food. Whether sitting outside or inside, it's always a treat to dine there.

Reserved a table for 7 people on a Saturday for my birthday with my family and was pretty dissapointed. I was so excited to eat there as I was told the food was great but when we arrived it was packed and so loud! There is a tavern area and a dinning room, so was glad I made a reservation... More

Comfortable, casual atmosphere. Great service; food is even better! Wanted to try everything! Boudin ball app just like NOLA! Big wine and beer list. Must give this place a try.
