My wife and I were taking a morning walk near Elkhart Lake's City Center and decided to try this interesting place for a cup of coffee and whatever breakfast we could find. We certainly lucked out here as the coffee was bold and delicious and there was a very good selection of homemade sweet treats as well as several interesting breakfast options including several gluten-free choices. We chose one of the breakfast sandwiches featuring scrambled eggs, deli ham and aged cheddar cheese on a toasted english muffin. The sandwiches were amazing. On our way out we passed the sweets counter and saw a dozen or so enticing items in their showcase. We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing and very satisfying breakfast experience and will definitely be back soon...

You can step back in time in this nicely restored Elkhart Lake historic ice cream shop. You can choose from a couple dozen flavors of hand dipped premium ice cream...cups, hand made waffle cones, or build your own sundae. Delicious!

Sissy's is our nightly stop for ice cream after dinner. They have unique flavors and a single scoop cone is filled from the bottom up with a generous two scoops on the top. The waitress is always friendly and patient while you make your selection.

Paddock Club Restaurant

Reviewed By C0lley - Chicago, Illinois

We have eaten at all the restaurants in Elkhart Lake and this is our hands-down favorite. Creative dishes, great presentation and everything is delicious. Loved that we could order a half portion of the lobster ravioli for our 10 year old - they were great, light and tasty. Other dishes such as gnocchi, chop, and specials were all tasty. Service is outstanding and very professional and well-trained. We ate there two out of five nights on our week of vacation. Enough variety that we could have eaten there all five nights and have been delighted. Highly recommend.

Lola's on the Lake

Reviewed By lscahc - Buffalo Grove, Illinois

We were staying at the Ostoff Resort and decided to try Lola's after reading reviews. We experienced issues with the service (they couldn't find our reservation, the server never told us about the specials, which we wound up ordering, service was not timely). We ordered the trio of soups, which were delicious! We ordered swordfish and salmon entrees. The swordfish was overcooked and the salmon was undercooked. Our server mentioned that the salmon can be undercooked and suggested that we order it medium well, which we did. Still came out undercooked. Based on reviews, perhaps we caught the restaurant on an off night.

Lake Street Cafe

Reviewed By Mark H - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin

Always busy on weekends during the summer and early fall, the Lake Street Cafe is one of two restaurants in downtown Elkhart Lake that I enjoy.

Lake Street Cafe is my choice when I'm looking for a casual dinner and a lively atmosphere in the bar area. Sometimes it gets a little too loud to carry on a conversation and if that's a problem you can be seated in the much more sedate dining room.

On my most recent visit the place was packed with motorheads who spend the weekend hanging out at the Road America racetrack nearby and the Osthoff hotel for a car featuring vintage sports cars.

The lobster bisque soup is excellent. My companion and I both had panini sandwiches, one Italian and the other smokes ham and brie.

If you're looking for something dressier (and pricier) the Paddock Club next door is also an excellent choice.

The only nits I would pick from my most recent visit was the men's room was out of towels in both dispensers and our young served seemed a little green. No big deal.

Brown Baer

Reviewed By GoneOffTheGrid - Vernon Hills, Illinois

I really enjoyed the eclectic decor of this bar. It's interesting in a genuine way (without fake memorabilia like the national franchise bars / restaurants).

And decor aside, they had a nice selection of beers on-tap and very friendly staff. Speaking of which, our female bartender was/is one of the most beautiful women I've ever met. Not in a flashy way (and not "full of herself" in any way either). But just an absolute pleasure to behold (even in the most innocent platonic way imaginable). I'd pay money to just sit there and enjoy her face...:-)

Nice (comfortable) place. I'll visit again next time I'm in town.

Elkhart Inn

Reviewed By Amy S - Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin

We went about 6:20pm on a Friday night. There were only 4 other people there. (Not a good sign). Everyone was friendly but it took forever to get our food. That's odd since the other 4 people got their food soon after we sat down. I don't know why ours would take so long.

As far as the flavor of the food everyone thought it was pretty good. Nothing over the top though.

The Back Porch Bistro

Reviewed By TonyMundain - Grafton, Massachusetts

Spent the day at the track and wanted a casual sit down dinner. The back porch was perfect and not crowded at all for a Saturday night. The pork belly appetizer was awesome, good stuff. I went with the weinerschitzel and my wife had the chicken parm. Her only complaint was that she likes the breading on the chicken a little crisper. Other than that, it was a good time. Our waiter was very friendly and high energy.
