I was very impressed with this place...
It sits on a nice area, with large windows overlooking a small dock that links to a bigger lake. You have three sitting alternatives, bar, restaurant and outisde patio.
Service was great (they kept bringing samples until I decided on my beer), food was very good (well above the average) and the selection also quite good. You will not find a lot of imports, but it has a nice selection of local brews, some difficult to find, a lot of them on tap.
I would go back for the place alone, would also go back for the food alone. You throw the beers, this is a great place!
And the prices are high, as I expected after reading the previous review. Food is reasonably priced, and the brews are mostly 3 dollars each.

Great place. It is newly remodeled and looks a ton better than when it was called Waters Edge. When dining try to get a table by the big windows that overlook Lake Wissota.

The cuisine is prepared from fresh locally grown produce. I believe most if not all the meats are organically raised (The tenderloin melts in your mouth). It’s nice to go to a facility that supports its local farmers.

If you’re going to Native Bay to eat expect to pay more if you’re eating in the dining room. It is on the pricey side (for this area) but it is worth it. A great place for an anniversary or if you’re trying to impress a girl. If your looking for more of the typical American fare you can get that off of their Bar or Lunch Menu. These prices I would say are pretty competitive with other Restaurants and Lounges in the Area ($8 and under a lot of the time). They also offer a Sunday Brunch. It’s a la carte but you can get a pretty good breakfast for around 5 bucks.

The Bar features the best beer list I have seen in the Chippewa Valley. You will see Microbrews from Ale Asylum, Bell's Brewery, Berghoff, Capital Brewery, Central Waters, Dogfish Head, Falls Brewing Co., Founder's Brewing, Furthermore, Goose Island Brewery, Gray's Brewing Co., Harbor City, Lake Louie Brewing, Lakefront Brewery, Lakefront Brewery, New Glarus Brewery, Point Brewery, Sand Creek, South Shore Brewery, Sprecher Brewing Co., Summit Brewing Co., Tyranena Brewing Co., Viking Brewing Co. and many others. They also offer some really nice wines and a decent cocktail menu.

Located on Lake Wissota, it is a great place to stop while boating to get some grub, good beer and gas. It is also located very close to one of the areas best golf courses. It’s always nice to stop by for a quick beer or three after a round. I like the fact that the menus (both food and beer) are constantly being updated. And I'm looking forward to this year’s swine and swill beer event.
