We ended up here on a Monday during the off-season when most other restaurants were closed. There were a few people in the bar, and no one in the dining room. The service was fine, and the food was ok- nothing special

We visited for lunch during Harvest Fest, had football games on and seating at the bar. Lunch menu included soup and salad bar and entrees range from 8.95-10.95. Supper club menu such as liver and onions with fries or mashed potatoes, fried chicken meat loaf, you get the idea. It was OK for the price, but not a true dining... More

Bunch of teens working there. Steaks undercooked and had to be sent back. Moscow Mule was horrible. Fried calamarie was not cooked either. Amateur operation. Ever since they changed the menu and decor trying to update themselves it is unbelievably bad.

Well, it is technically Sea Critters Inn at Harbor Lights. New ownership - apparently have the one in Florida. Totally redecorated, which was at least 30 years overdue. Friendly owner. Staff same as before and always friendly. As to the soup and salad bar, it is less than it was. No chicken liver mousse or gizzards. A couple of the... More

6 adults for dinner arrived at 5.45p, seated immediately, The menu very good & varied, especially the one before 6p. Lots of choice, only $8.95 including soup and salad bar. The salad bar is especially good, the best I've found in Green Lake. The owner was present and visited our table. Lots of seniors eating, they obviously know good value... More

We decided to stop here to try their $14.95 prime rib on a Saturday night. There were only a couple tables of people and it was Saturday night at 6:30 pm. Not a good sign. The lettuce in the salad bar was not great. But, the "other" items in the salad bar were tasty. The salad bar used to be... More

We stopped at the bar and ordered a glass of wine. We asked what kind it was and the bartender said better than average. He told us Walleye was the special and bragged about how good it was. We got to the table and the waitress also said the walleye was excellent choice. We took a sip of our wine... More
