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

If you are staying a Welks and do not want to drive all over looking for places to eat then you only have a few choices. Found dinners to be very good and the breakfasts were acceptable. First night had looked at menu online saw the dessert menu included carrot cake but when we got there they had new dessert... More

This is the restaurant at the Lawrence Welk Resort and we only ate there once for our brunch which was included as part of our theater package deal. The service was good and the food likewise. They did have a large variety of type of foods for the meal and the quality was above average. In summary, a nice place... More

My wife and I stayed at Welk Resort and found this place nearby. Average food in a nice venue. Food on the buffet was average and the ribs in the Grill were just good. Service was okay. Nice place if you don't want to drive elsewhere and haven't stocked your refrigerator yet.

Enjoyed the buffet dinner here, lots of vegetarian choice as well as all the meat choices for those that eat meat. Yummy desert selection. We sat in the atrium so it was more bistro seating. The 'real' restaurant has table cloths on the table and one can order quite a selection from the a al carte menu.
