First time their, it will not be my last. The food was excellent, order by sleeker, then a very nice person brings you your food. Their burgers are AWESOME, they have the best onion-rings so good. You drive in stay in your car, so never mind those every day shorts or what ever. The view was OUT -STANDING. You are right there looking at this WONDERFUL lake , watching the birds hanging around then come a boat with 4 tubes and 4 kids on them then the skier comes . it so nice to come see for yourself.

Best view and burger in town! The owners are so nice, they even keep it open longer in the season than the previous owners, who closed by early August. Friendly waitress. Great Cheese Olive Deluxe. Mushrooms yummy, fries great and not greasy. Love a cherry or pineapple shake! Cash only but they have an atm on site.

Came in just as they were closing but still got amazing service. I would come here in highschool all of the time and when my wife said she had never been I knew I had to give her the amazing service and experience I had years ago. Keep up the good work, quality products. A good experience and great customer service is key

It's a beautiful view but the food I've tried is definitely a miss. I love local businesses but these guys really just warm up things from Frozen and serve it up.. it is incredibly cheap tho..

Americana in Portage. Great drive-in food, rootbeer, peppy service, and a view of the lake that is spectacular. I enjoyed chili dogs that were hot, tasty, and looked picture perfect. Yum! Can't wait to go back.

The food was just awful. I had the bluegill platter which was mostly breading. The tartar sauce was not fresh. The onion rings were over breaded and bad. The fries underdone and tasteless. The burger was small. The coleslaw was gross with a bad aftertaste. It gets one star for the view.

Price is a little high for what you get. Double olive burger 6 bucks medium root beer 2 bucks, fry is 2 bucks, which isn't bad but I was left him hungry afterwords. Beautiful view, you used to be able to pick up orders for the boat. Service was good.

Basic food but quality product! Wife swears by their Olive burgers, root beer floats. Pulled pork sandwiches, onion rings. Gorgeous view of West Lake too.
