We went to Lake Street Cafe without a reservation AFTER calling twice and being told they didn't take reservations. We were told there was seating outside so the group starts to head outside. The outside was empty and it was awful. It was plastic tables and chairs, overgrown weeds, and just plain nasty. We came back inside and informed the... More

The service was prompt. The pizza was done well and to our liking. We have eaten here numerous times over the past 5 years.

This is my favorite restaurant in Elkhart Lake. Every time I've been there, I've had delicious food. Whether sitting outside or inside, it's always a treat to dine there.

Reserved a table for 7 people on a Saturday for my birthday with my family and was pretty dissapointed. I was so excited to eat there as I was told the food was great but when we arrived it was packed and so loud! There is a tavern area and a dinning room, so was glad I made a reservation... More

Comfortable, casual atmosphere. Great service; food is even better! Wanted to try everything! Boudin ball app just like NOLA! Big wine and beer list. Must give this place a try.

How about bacon and broccoli pizza with horseradish cheddar cheese, red onions and garlic on a crispy crust? Delicious. Cuban sandwich served as a quesadilla -- on appetizer list but nice size for lighter entrée which would not leave you hungry. Plus we were able to share a crème brule with Grand Marnier for dessert. Always items to select for... More

Busy place in downtown Elkhart Lake. Food was delicious and the drinks were tasty, too. Was a bit crowded but our wait wasn't that long. We grabbed a seat at the bar with a window view out onto the street. Great time!

This isn't your average pub/bar with pedestrian fare and drinks. The wine list is off the charts crazy with unreal prices. The verticals alone are worth the drive from Milwaukee (or Chicago for that matter). The lobster bisque is sublime. Pair that with any of their exceptional whites and you'll be in heaven!!! Menu ranges from soups, salads etc. to... More

Driving through Elkhart Lake is always a pleasure, even on a gloomy day in March. Hungry for something new and interesting, we parked in front of Lake Street Cafe and was greeted with happy smiles and bright blue chairs! A large mural in bold colors glowed even though the skies outside were grey. The staff was pleasant and accommodating even... More
