My lady and I stopped in early 2012 as we were passing through Lake Geneva. The restaurant is attached to a hotel and is just across from the lake. Beautiful scenery and a really nice place. Rather busy on a Saturday afternoon but we were seated right away. Plenty of beers to try as I believe they have 18 beers available at all times and about 25 throughout the year because of seasonals. A little hefty at $5 a glass but it was worthy the experience. They even have a beer club thing you can join to try all their beers and get a free shirt. Definitely will return if I'm in town again.

This is a good place to take the family. The food has always been good to me and pairs well with a good beer. If you're not in the mood for beer (why?) or have kids, they also brew some phenominal sodas. It seems to me like this place is always very busy, but the location right next to the lake and in town is prime time. I've always consumed Sprecher brews, so I can't comment on their selection of other beers. My favorites are Black Bavarian, Abbey Triple and Citra Bomb. Sprecher brews are not overwhelming to me, but this place is quite a nice place to land in the Geneva toutist trap.

I've been here a few times, and look forward to it every time I do.

Sprecher's has a nice variety of their beers on tap, and the food is interesting, and constantly changing. Beers aren't the most avant guarde in the world, but there's something for everyone. Has a nice "old world" charm to it, and the prices aren't too bad. Definitely a place to check out if you're in Lake Geneva!

I stayed at the hotel attached to the restaurant with a bunch of other "dumbasses" from Illinois. There was an Octoberfest event so we stopped by. There was a large crowd, the Wisconsin Badgers football game was on the TV. The Badgers were winning so the crowd was into it. It was extremely load, so loud you couldn't talk. I wasn't crazy about that. What good is having a few beers with your friends if you can't talk with them.

We didn't eat, we only had a few beers. There is a large selection of beers to choose. The bartender was very helpful and attentive even with the large crowd. We saw a few people walk out with growlers.

I had an IPA that was average at best, the Dogfish and Ranger at other establishments in town were much better. My friends were drinking wheat beers and Octoberfest beers. They said they were OK but nothing special.

My overall opinion, if you are in town and happen upon the restaurant stop in you'll have some fun but I wouldn't go out of my way.

Stumbled upon this place in Lake Geneva looking for a good bite to eat and came to realize it was also a brewery. I was not familiar with their brews, only their root beer and cream sodas. I must say I was pleasantly suprised. I tried their Abbey Triple and IPA.

The waiter recommended the hot pretzel sticks that came with 3 different dipping sauces which were phenomenal. We also shared the cheese curds ($7) and quesadillas ($10). Although they were a bit overpriced, the fact that the beers were only $5 made it easier to swallow.

All in all this is probably the only place in town to satisfy a beer snobs needs, and it didnt dissapoint. They have plenty of fresh brews on tap to satisfy any taste bud. Took home a growler of the Abbey triple, which stays fresh for up to 7 days after opening it but I only needed 2.

I stopped here last weekend.

It is a decent-sized place near the lake. It is rather numb inside, it looks like a ruby Tuesday or something.

You can make your own flight which is what I did. There was like 13-14 things on tap. The beer was well-priced so if you are coming here to try it don't worry.

On the other hand this is Lake Geneva after all. I happen to live not far from it but all I can say is it is catered towards dumbass Illinois people thinking they are going "up north". The food prices reflect this. My measly portion of sauerbraten with some benign carrots and spaetzle was like 16$. The sauerbraten and spaetzle were both great but the Sauerbraten was a small portion (4ozish).

The service was decent, though they didn't know much about the beers and forced me to put these tasting cards down even though i could have easily figured out each beer without seeing the reference.

Overall this place is okay, they do have growlers for take out. It is kind of what you would expect for Lake Geneva.
