We had dinner at Atwater's while staying at the Herrington Inn. Service is on point and extremely attentive. The baramundhi and duck were delicious! Creme brulee was a great end to the meal.

nice that it's often not overly busy so you can enjoy the good food, good setting along the fox river, and still get to enjoy the company of the guests since it's not loud from too many others. Also would want to rent out their...More

Very good--the ambiance--this is a very handsome place to dine. Good--the service, which was professional, and the cocktail, which was well made. Wasn't to our taste--the food. The presentations were quite creative, but, on the whole, they didn't work out. In particular, the halibut entree...More
