The food was not good. The service was not good either. I would not recommend eating here. I had three other people with me and none of them liked their food.

We were very disappointed by the food at Kona Bay Fish House. The location is very nice and our waitress was very nice but the food was a disappointment. In all fairness there was a wedding at the venue on the Sat. night we visited. However, that is no reason for slow service and not very good food. The restaurant... More

We had one meal here and it was an ok meal but this place is advertised in the lodge brochure as "unparalleled cuisine" and "panoramic views". We had no view and the food was anything but considered cuisine. It was very average and overpriced. We won't be back.

We went with a group of friends who wanted to try it, against our better judgment. Wish we'd needed our better judgment. High prices for mediocre food.

4 of us stopped to stay at the lodge. We decided to have burgers. The 10 ounce Prime Burger (med rare) was probably the best burger I have had for some time. Cooked perfect. We all had them and and agreed that they were excellent. Might even try a rare one the next time. Priced fair based on the quality.... More

My husband and I live in Sturgeon Bay. There were only 2 other tables besides ours that night - who already had their food and yet it took forever to get our meal. Service was terrible - the owner must have known the table that was next to ours as that was the only table that our waitress was worried... More

You can't go wrong here. Josh runs a tight ship at the bar and a nice friendly crowd makes you feel at home. A bit like the "Cheers" of Sturgeon Bay.

The fact that we were the only table in the entire restaurant at 6:00 on a Saturday should've told us everything. And how can you get bad service with one table? Menu states ribs are their specialty. Worst ever! So tough we couldn't cut thru them with a steak knife. $18.00 sirloin steak that was tough and tasted freezer burned.... More

It was handy to stay at the hotel to eat, but the food was not that good. The drinks were good. Staff friendly.

The food and service was good. Their daily specials were priced reasonably and were also very good. The portions were also plentiful. The rest of the menu had a good selection to choose from but I felt most items were overpriced, but they were probably very similar to other restaurants in this area. Finding a reasonable place to dine in... More
