Great view of the Mississippi. I have several place I wanted to eat but being a Monday most were closed. We checked this place out and the food was delicious. My husband had the cheese curd burger and said it was amazing.

I wasn't feeling so hot when we went to dinner but I wasn't impressed. I got a burger which was fine but nothing special and I wasn't thrilled with the service.

Situated overlooking the lake with a deck in open air, this restaurant offers the perfect spot for lunch, dinner, or an evening gathering with others. A fire pit in the center of the open area makes for perfect atmosphere. Inside a pool table is available for guests as well. Food was delicious sandwiches.

We ordered food to come to our room. We had some coupons for free appetizers and free drinks. We were not impressed with the choices or the food, and didn't use all of the coupons. The nachos were covered over with nacho cheese, and not real cheese. The fish sandwich had three very small pieces on it. The restaurant has... More

The 'Pub" has a cafeteria kind of look. Not very warm of cozy. The pool table was not present anymore, too bad since that is a nice way to kill a relaxing evening. The burger was dry and the ceasar salad was the worst I have ever eaten. I am not that difficult but the dressing was very sour and... More

Generous portions and good flavor. We had the nacho appetizer overflowing with toppings, BBQ sliders and pulled pork grilled cheese with chocolate martinis. Also a fun, boating atmosphere overlooking Green Lake.

The food was wonderful and the service was speedy and attentive, but I was disappointed with the ambiance. The rest of the resort is so interesting, but the pub is somewhat plain.
