There are many reasons I find Native Bay Restaurant to be a great dining experience, beginning with relaxing views of Lake Wissota from deck, lounge or dining room. The remodeled dining room is unique and interesting. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The lounge features a large selection of midwestern microbrews and a nice variety of wines. Both newly expanded lounge menu and dining room menu feature local cuisine with an emphasis on organics. Buying locally means that the local growers and producers are being supported and that the menu is constantly changing to incorporate what is currently being harvested. I have enjoyed trying new foods that I have never seen anywhere else and standard fare done in new and creative ways. Native Bay's monthly special theme dinners have to be experienced to be appreciated. I try not to miss them. Whether it's a burger in the lounge, relatives in for Sunday brunch or a special occasion dinner, Native Bay is where I go.
