Dining

Take a bite, a deep breath, and savor the experience of dining at the lake. Giving our guests personalized, memorable experiences has always been what we strive for. We have innovative ways of bringing our fresh, wholesome menu items to you so that you can take your time to reconnect with your families, yourself, and what it means to be at the lake.

Watch the boats from our patio while you savor mouthwatering BBQ or indulge in a farm-to-fork dining experience while you take in the view of the harbor. Sip Starbuck’s Coffee® while watching the sunrise, grab a quick snack by the pool for an afternoon pick-me-up, and end your night with a craft cocktail and live music. Our variety of venues are sure to please every palate. 

Locally sourced, hand-crafted cuisine in a rustic atmosphere 

Much like in life, it’s all about the company you keep.

Chef Joshua North works with local growers and producers to bring quality, sustainable ingredients to your table. This farm-to-fork philosophy shows in a menu featuring fresh, seasonal vegetables, locally sourced meats, and artisan breads and cheeses. Whether you try the Shrimp & Bucatini Carbonara or the Ribeye Spinalis, 240° West will keep you curious and connected to where food has its beginning. Our rustic atmosphere is influenced by wine country, with reclaimed wood beams, rich fabrics and a large stone fireplace, and the panoramic harbor views are not to be missed. At 240° West, we look forward to giving you an exceptional dining experience from beginning to end.

To us, "locally sourced" isn't just a trendy term. Our ingredients come from area partners who share the same passion for high-quality foods and sustainable resources as we do. You can taste the difference in each dish created by our culinary team, from our Chicken & Pomegranate Gnocchi to our Farmer's Market Burger.

Driftless Glen Distillery

Driftless Glen Distillery is an award-winning craft distillery in Baraboo, WI. They are located at the edge of the Driftless Area, a unique topographical part of the state that was missed by the last glaciation 15,000 years ago and that now has rugged hills, deep river valleys, rich prairies, and abundant limestone. This local terroir offers not only prime conditions to grow grains, but also a natural sandstone aquifer, allowing them to source grain and water locally and produce their whiskey 100% grain-to-glass. Share their dream and “Taste the American Spirit.”

Our exclusive Driftless Glen Single Barrel Bourbon was tasted, hand selected by, and bottled exclusively for The Abbey Resort. This small batch bourbon has strong caramel notes that pair perfectly with the sweetness of the Wisconsin maple syrup in our exclusive old fashioned. Try it in that or any of the other cocktails below, or on its own over ice.
