We drove out to take the lake boat tour and ordered a quick take out lunch from this place to take on board the paddlewheel boat ride.

I was there on Friday night, eating outside on the deck. The servers were all extremely busy, but there were four or five girls standing at a hostess table just talking to each other--didn't appear to be servers. Not sure about that.

I loved the indoor/outdoor seating. The menu has enough unique items to make it stand out and the prices were very fair. The food tasted great and seemed fresh.

This is a regular stop for us when we want Friday night fish that is anything but average. The perch is great, but so is the tuna steak and grilled salmon! Where do you get that in Wisconsin? And not have to pay a fortune for it? We also love the gyro. The onions are grilled and take the bite... More

Chain Bar has great food and their Friday fish is also great. They have something for everyone on their menu and a vast selection on craft and local brews.
