This is one of my favorite resturants! They have a lot of really good food on their menu. You can eat inside, or outside, and when your all finished, you can go to the beach right next to the restaurant!

Was given a gift card for the place with the description that it was a 'joint' but had the best ribs in the state. I'd say that was pretty accurate. The staff was friendly and the service was wonderful. We actually ate lunch there one day and went back for a rib dinner another night. Prices were good, it is... More

Somewhat small place, so it tends to get crowded quickly. We arrived just at 630PM on a Tuesday, so peak time. One table was remaining and we were seated quickly. We did have to wait a bit to get drinks and menus. Once ordered though, the food came quickly. Unfortunately, my husband's fish sandwich did not turn out well, but... More

The place is a little outdated but WOW what great food at a very good price. The ribs and the burgers were some of the best I have ever had! If the weather is nice you can eat just off the shores of the lake. Outside bar in the summer. If you are staying at Geneva Ridge you can pretty... More

Good, solid supper-club-type place on Lake Como just a few minutes from Lake Geneva proper. It's Saturday evening and early- 6pm and there's an hour wait for a table and the place is packed with folks having drinks waiting for their tables. The bartender gave me proper attitude when I asked her to run through what beers were on tap.... More

This was our first visit to Mars; got a very warm welcome. Restaurant sits on lake shore and view was lovely. Questions answered easily. Menu includes dinners, sandwiches, specials - plenty of choices. Food came quickly and was very good. Will definitely go back.

If you need a break from life to forget the work week and enjoy some beer and a great fish fry, then this is where you need to be. Amazing service and great food. Ribs are to die for to! Great hidden gem!

These are the best ribs in southeast Wisconsin. We ate during the Packers victory over Dallas in the 2017 playoffs. Our poor waitress was a wreck because of the very exciting a close game but still provides excellent service. What a fun time and great food.
