We sat outside on the patio but it was a bit chilly. Food was good but skimpy salad. View was excellent. Service was good. Skip soggy fries and go for onion rings 2$ extra. Much better then eating in town Lake Geneva.

Food is just plain lousy. too greasy, not warm, seemed reheated. even the kids hated the food. waitresses were indifferent, and lazy. Horrible service. The worst restaurant in the Geneva area.

My husband and I arrived at Mars and waited on their outside deck having drinks while waiting to be seated, about 1/2 hour, and were given a table inside by the window. Table for 2 fits 2, very tiny, but no big deal. The food...More
