That's what the sign in front of Seester's says. The food and drinks are great any time of the year, but summertime is when Seester's really shines. Its a great place to eat before enjoying "Waterfront Wednesday" or the Pewaukee Lake Waterski Club practices or Thursday shows. The patio is cozy and comfortable even including a water dish for your... More

This is not our first choice for Mexican, mostly because the price seems high for the quality of food in addition to how tight the seating is. I know this is a local favorite, but I just don't get it. Not really that great of service, the food just is not that good and you pay was too much for... More

Went on a week night in the summer.... This place was jam packed and unbelievably noisy. Conversation was impossible without practically shouting. Place is small, tables were very close together. Tacos we had were average, nothing special. Service was surprisingly good, given the amount of people and noise to hear the orders. I think the location, and views, (across the... More

You normally don't think Mexican when looking for a fish fry, but if you want the BEST fish fry EVER, then try Seester's on a Friday night. The fish is light and crispy, the potatoes are well seasoned, and the salad is wonderful and fresh with a bit of Mexican flair. You'll need to go early, because they sometimes run... More

I love their food -- especially their winter specials like the chicken and spinach enchilada with poblano sauce. That sauce is so spectacular, I'm actually a little embarrassed to admit I have licked the plate to get every last drop of it. Their soups are great as well. The service is always excellent and really friendly. I also love the... More

I love Seester's. The owner and staff are so friendly! Food is always fresh. Love their $2.50 Taco Tuesdays. The fresh cilantro is perfect. Guacamole is terrific and their chip are great, too!

My wife, mom, and I decided to try out this restaurant because of the convenient location in downtown Pewaukee and outdoor seating. We knew it would be busy, but everything at 6 on a Saturday is. Our waitress was great even though we knew she was busy, and promised to get our food out at a timely manner. Each of... More

Wanted to eat somewhere with a lake view and tried this place. Food was pretty solid and cocktails were good as well. The food will not change your life but the location is fantastic and the service was on point.

Outdoor seating sucked. Cheap chairs and tiny tables not enough umbrellas to shade you when seated. Chips and chopped up tomatoes is their so called salsa!! The drinks are way over priced and the waitress was rude. So to sum it up to those of you that are reading my review..... We won't be back.
