The restaurant was down the road from my hotel and the staff and patrons were fun, friendly and will make you feel at home. I wish I lived closer to drop in more often. I had a burger and it was excellent.

This is a casual dining spot. Lake Geneva has a number of high end restaurants. The food here is ok- they could improve it for the price. But this place is right at lake level so you really come for the view. Good selection of beer on tap, and a piano player.

Went for lunch and thought about eating outside but with temperatures in the 40's and a strong wind we stayed inside. The Bloody Mary and beer selection were very good. We decided to split a full order of ribs. You have to love a place that gives you a cheese ball and creamy garlic dressing. Everything was tasty and then... More

Hole in the wall bar/restaurant type. I could not find anything healthy on the menu. One time they even tried to put liquid cheese from a jar on my cheese burger. Not good. Come on, Wisconsin is the Cheese state, and they are giving me fake cheese that you are not supposed to cook? Their Bloody Mary's were not the... More

The interior is a throw back to the 70's - which I hope they never change or update. The grounds and patio are all updated and the place overlooks Lake Como. We only ordered burgers so that's all the food I can comment on but they were v. good. We ate on the patio with the sun setting with good... More

Mars Restaurant and Bar is a fun spot for a casual dinner and drinks. The food is good and the drinks well made. There is a piano bar with an excellent performer who plays music from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Best Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake I ever ate!!
