This dive (meant in the kindest way) overlooking Pewaukee Lake offers almost no place to stand comfortably when it’s busy, but you stand, awkwardly, near the bar or the wood-accented, nautical-themed dining room, and just hope that someone gets up and leaves soon. It’s all worth this period of limbo. The crust is like a round, uniformly thin piece of lavosh lavished in toppings that improve when you add “super,” as in Super Special. That’s pepperoni and sausage, black olives and onions, green peppers and mushrooms.
Entertainment, Friday Fish Fry, Open For Lunch, Outdoor Dining, Gluten Free,
Serves a completely plant-based menu in eco-friendly surroundings (bamboo floors, walls painted with nontoxic paint). Wines come from organic, sustainable vineyards. Vegan, raw and gluten-free options available.
The sizable Japanese menu is at once kind to lovers of raw fish and the theatrical hibachi. Spring for tempura (veggie and/or shrimp), sushi and sashimi, special maki rolls and any appetizer from the sushi bar. Wash them down with a cold Sapporo.
The motto, “exceptional dining that’s casual,” extends to the idea that we need to respect the land from which our food comes. The menu is organized not by course or by the labels “meat,” “fish” or “vegetable.” It’s organized by price – not outlandish digits, either.
