We went for dinner and was seriously disappointed especially after reading the great reviews. Our appetizers came fast but everything else was really slow they messed up my son's food and had to redo it (burnt food mmmm) and apparently my food sat under a...More

We always eat at this restaurant after an afternoon of boating at Winthrop Harbor, Lake Michigan. The food is pretty good, but what keeps us coming back is the location, decor and 'feel'. Frequented by locals and those coming in after a day of boating...More

This is a beautiful place right on lake Michigan. The food is decent, a bit pricey for the quality, but a very nice beach type ambiance in the restaurant , reminded me of a Florida beach restaurant. Service was good which is a big plus.

We visit here quite often because we enjoy the view and because it's one of the only places to eat that's right on the lake between Winthrop Harbor and Kenosha. There are other restaurants near the water, but this one is cool because it's right...More

We went to The Tropics for lunch. We've been wanting to go for awhile and finally had the time to go. The day was beautiful and the outdoor setting with the beautiful lake and all kinds of boats gave us lots to take in. The...More
