My husband and I have been there 2 times this week. He had ribs both times-very tender, fall off the bone, with a medium sweet sauce. I had Lemon Chicken pasta with capers - very good, and even had leftovers for lunch! Cesar side salad was great. I tried one of their special cocktails, which was interesting. The second time...

My family and I wanted to grab dinner outside of downtown Lake Geneva and so after driving past The Waterfront for 18 years, we decided to give it a try. If you are looking for a nice bar atmosphere this place is great. They had a great bar and it was open and airy with a fantastic lineup of beers... More

Went there for dinner for a date night and had a terrible experience. I remember going there when the old owners were there and the prices and food were so much better. What we had tonight, pasta, I could have made at home for half the price. The $7 wine glass was about as much as a Dixie cup. Sorry... More

Nonetheless, we are still serving the same dishes prepared with top quality ingredients that we always have. If you wouldn't mind, I'd love to speak with you about your experience... More

We recently ate dinner at Waterfront Pub and Grill in Delavan on a Friday night. We had been wanting to try the Friday fish fry here for quite some time, and we had a gift card from Christmas to use. This was our first visit to Waterfront, and we would return again many times! We arrived just before 5:30 in... More

This is a nice place, right near Lake Delavan, off Hwy 50. They have specials that are quite reasonable. We are locals and have gone here a few times, mainly with guests. The food is tastie --esp the burgers, and the selection is okay; however, I do believe it is a bit pricey...that said, probably the tourists coming from the... More

I've wanted a good burger for a very long time. My husband and I ordered the cheeseburger. It was half pound on a toasted kaiser bun. It was cooked exactly as I wanted it. The homemade fries were delicious. They weren't smothered in salt. What a wonderful change. Exactly as I would have made them. The waitress was very friendly.... More

Had the Mc and Cheese with sundried tomatoes. Yummm. They also have excellent burgers and an out of this world BLT! Fun interior. Although it's called the Waterfront you really can't see the lake as the trees and shrubs block the view in the lower restaurant.

We ate at the Waterfront with some other couples. It was a little noisy but the food was good. Lots of TVs around to view sports.
