First, well done on the fish fry! Too many restaurants serve an oily batter on their fried fish, but this was perfect! Also had the veggie lasagna with really rich cheese-delicious. You could taste the alcohol in the cocktails which is always a good thing :) Keeping in mind we were there on an early Friday night in late fall, the lake view was great. I can imagine this place is a lot busier in summer.

Love the new winter comfort food menu at Pier 290. Sat outside at the bar and had a great time. The fireplace had a great fire going and the drinks were terrific. The bartender Patti was awesome, she walked through the new menu for us and made great recommendations. Hope management knows how terrific she is! We had the beef stroganoff with mashed potatoes and it was delicious. The Old Fashioned's were tasty too! Great atmosphere to have lunch or dinner and watch a game! Will definitely be back to try another new menu item. My only wish is that the chicken piccata was still on the menu, but I guess you can't have everything.

Great view, great food, good service , good drinks, unique environment for lunch or dinner!

Maybe be crowded at times but worth the wait!

Set aside some time and just enjoy the experience !

It is a little pricey but worth the price!

Drink & dine ON the beach (toes in the sand) or just off the beach around 2 large gas fire pits, or on a deck above the beach, or inside. Views & food were excellent, service friendly.

Pier 290 is a great place to have dinner with a view. Unfortunately it is quite noisy and wow! expensive. Over $40 for an 8 oz filet with mashed taters and a few string beans. The restaurant is popular, especially the outdoor area with a faux beach with Adirondack chairs. The good thing is that it is away from the chaos of Lake Geneva, but they should revamp their menu. Mixed drinks were okay, but nothing to write home about. I enjoyed their gift shop, oddly enough.
