Overview

The Abbey Resort's very own Waterfront restaurant is known for its casual, laid-back vibe. It's the perfect place to unwind, either on the patio or indoors, and serves lunch, dinner and drinks. We use the techniques of award-winning Pit Master Matt Whiteford to create specialties like Smoked BBQ Quesadillas and the BBQ Beef Brisket Sandwich. But our menu doesn’t end there, try the Bloody Mary Burger or the Parmesan Panko Mac n’ Cheese. The Friday Fish Fry is a fun and delicious Wisconsin tradition, especially when there's live entertainment. We also offer a full children's menu and take-out. And did we mention drinks? Pair any item from our enticing menu with a craft beer or one of our signature cocktails, and you're in for a one-of-a-kind experience.

The service was good but the food was tasteless. We had a party of 6 and none of us were happy with our food. Would not go back.
