Lakeside food and fun

Hand-crafted cocktails, mouthwatering BBQ & live entertainment overlooking Lake Geneva

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 Smoked Aioli & Cherry Pepper French Dip 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.
