Great music venue,but not friendly to customers. Food is rarely good. Cold or burnt. Their response is that's just the way it is. Service is slow to non-existent. Don't complain to Kris. She doesn't understand what customer service is about. Unfortunately we live nearby, but we will be taking our friends and family to more appreciative businesses on the water... More

We have been going here for years to grab a drink and watch the sunset before heading elsewhere for fish fry. Drinks and good and inexpensive, service is fast and you can't beet the view. Younger kids will enjoy the giant sand box.

We have been to Lakeside several times. It often takes forever to find a waiter or waitress. They always seem understaffed. For Mother's Day, the restaurant was quiet in the afternoon. However, we could not get anyone to wait on us. When the bartender finally delivered our food, she commented, "this is my last delivery for the day". You can... More

Lakeside offered a good all around menu with something for everyone. Salad bar is in a bit of a crowded area but works. Family friendly as long as you are out of the bar before 9:30.

One of our favorite spots to have drinks and dinner and watch the Badger and Packers with our local friends. Friendly staff and service can be iffy, but worth it.

We recently stopped here for dinner. Our waitress, Val, did everything she could to make our visit memorable. We had great steaks and salads. A very good meal at a good price. The place has a great view of Lake Wisconsin. There is also a nice bar area and outdoor seating.

Very good food... Try one of the wraps. On Fridays, I particularly like the broiled haddock topped with Japanese breadcrumbs. Cole, the cook does a very nice job and if it is not too busy will join you in a friendly chat. Oh, try the mini tacos with a drink at the bar. Yum!

Brought Labor Day guests here and were embarrassed by the food. We brought them here two years ago and they looked forward to eating there again. We were so disappointed. It will be a long time before we will return.

Have stopped here several times while out on our Harley. Really do like the outside bar that overlooks the lake while enjoying there appetizers and cold beer. There is also live music most weekend that is setup outside for all to enjoy. We keep saying that we are going to have to try having dinner here some time in the... More
