Busy and full on Friday night but a great fish fry! Quite loud inside. Nice servers and staff! Since we don't live too far away, we plan to return often.

We had the fish fry which is the Friday special and it is excellent in quality and value. The potato pancakes that are an option are interesting in a good way and I recommend them.

Staying at the Abbey here and needed quick place to eat. Good food and if you're here early enough some good atmosphere with live music. Service was friendly and quick.

We stopped in after a day in the Spa. The menu was mainly bar food but due to their own smoker out back, the chicken I had and my husband's brisket sliders were very good. We were seated in the back along the windows which...More

Wanted something simple for the evening, had a lot of choices, had grilled fish tacos, very good. Sister-in-law had beef brisket tacos, a little unusual but she said they also were very good.

Description
The Abbey Resort's very own Waterfront Restaurant is known for its casual, laid back vibe. It's the perfect place to unwind, either on the patio or indoors, and serves lunch, dinner or drinks. We use the techniques of award-winning Pitmaster Matt Whiteford to create specialties like the Waterfront's famous mouthwatering barbecue, salads and wraps . The Friday Fish Fry is a fun and delicious experience, especially when there's live entertainment. And did we mention drinks? From Wisconsin's own Spotted Cow beer to signature cocktails like the Bloody Mary with a touch of bacon (yes, bacon!), you're in for a one-of-a-kind experience. There's also a full children's menu and take-out.
