Apart from a mix up in the orders, the service was excellent, the minestrone was absolutely delicious while the burgers were massive and complete. Overall, a very good meal and experience other than the mixup.

We ate three meals here last week: two breakfast and one dinner. For the first breakfast I had banana pancakes and my husband had the breakfast burrito. My pancakes were big and fluffy and I had enough left for another breakfast. My husband has commented several times how much he liked the burrito. We had a breakfast buffet one day... More

I ate here twice while I spent the week at the Welk Resort and I must say, I was very impressed by the politeness of the staff and the deliciousness of the food!

This is the restaurant at the Welk Resort. It gets very crowded as otherwise people have to drive 10+ miles to find a restaurant. The menu has reasonable selection and the prices are slightly high but reasonable for a resort. The food is much better than average.

We are staying at the Welk resort and were given a free meal. We expected it to be fair but were pleasantly surprised. My wife's cod entre was very good as was my sirloin steak.

Pleasant surroundings, friendly staff, helpful servers, good food! Great choices for the grandsons; huge (and delicious!) burgers and sandwiches for the kids; healthy (and also delicious!) salads for us. Plenty of seating available; large enough to accommodate a business meeting. Free parking

Cobb salad was very good and a nice size portion for lunch. Had the chicken sandwich for dinner as I wasn't that hungry. Onion rings good and service was good. They bring you bread but no plates, are you supposed to just eat off the tablecloth? We enjoyed the convenience of eating here as other outside restaurants are far away.

This restaurant is the only sit-down place to eat at Lawrence Welk Resorts. So for people without transportation, they have a captive audience. Maybe that's why the prices are higher. But the food is very good, the service is excellent, and the ambiance is nice. There's a full bar. You can't go wrong with any of the steaks - tender,... More
