Golden Mast Ratings and Reviews

When we were here for dinner, there was a small wedding reception (22 people) in the dining room we were in. Our server was also assigned to the table of 22 people but we were never forgotten about. I imagine it is normally a lot quieter when no large parties are there but it was still good.

We like dining near the water and especially in an upscale restaurant. The Golden Mast fit the bill and our experience was very satisfying, enjoyable and pleasurable. No complaints and the food met with our expectations.

Golden Mast is off the beaten path for those not living or vacationing in the lake country north of I-94. It sits on the water, which is unusual in that exclusive area. Half of our party was delayed 40 minutes due to road repairs on Hwy 16, but we didn't lose our table. The hostess was very considerate and we were lucky that it was a quiet night. While waiting, I had a Bloody Mary in the bar--it was very good and garnished with a large shrimp! Of all things to note in a restaurant review, the Ladies Room was a highlight!! The ceiling must be three stories high--don't miss it! As for the food: I started with the wild rice cream soup, which was really poor. There were very few grains of wild rice to be found in my bowl and overall, the soup had a floury taste. I had the Weiner Schnitzel. It was only ok. It was a large portion, but not as tender as I expected. Others in my party had Sauerbraten, duck and walleye. No one complained, but they didn't rave either. The desserts were good, however, so the evening ended on a high note. The space itself is attractive and well maintained. It is very large, so not the place for an intimate dinner. Unless you need to meet up in that area, which we did that evening, I would not go out of my way to go there.

The food was OK - salmon was a bit dry. Unfortunately, the service was very slow. Waitress had to be flagged down numerous times to get drinks or bring the bill.
We watched a man lose his Land Rover into the lake while trying to pull out his boat which added lots of entertainment to the night for us, probably not so much for him.
Very good food and environment. Despite ...
Very good food and environment. Despite reservation that was confirmed had to wait over 30 minutes for a table. Waitress was visibly flustered and taking care of another table with greater attention than our party. Hoping it was just an off night for them.

My husband is disabled and we have a service dog. We were abruptly told we could not bring him in but she could seat us outside. She made it very uncomfortable for us in front of the other patrons. We were there with 2 other couples and I would have left but it was difficult enough for my husband to even get to the restaurant in the first place to then move him again. I told her it was against the law to refuse us. She said she would seat us BUT that dog needs to be under the table out of sight and if anyone complains it would be on me. Rude, disrespectful and overall inconsiderate of a disability. I hope she never has to deal with a disability. It is a horrible way to live much less have to deal with ignorant people on the subject in a professional setting.

The Golden Mast is a very fine restaurant. Nice view of the lake but is a little busy outside because of the boat launch.
Fine to watch.
Great service, food is very good, only a little bit on the pricey side, but bring your wallet and enjoy.
I t was my wife's birthday and she had on a corsage.
They asked what the special occasion was and we received a free strawberry schaum torte for dessert without asking for it. Not too many restaurants do this kind of service and attention to the customers .
Our waiter had us and three other tables of couples and a table of about 14 and the service was properly timed.

We came for a birthday celebration on a weekday so there was not a lot of people. The food was really good and the service was commendable. My wife liked the clam chowder and the tuna salad. The calamari was fine. The steak was good enough though the rub was a little salty on certain sides.

We had attended a wedding at the Golden Mast in mid May and the food and service was outstanding. We decided we would celebrate our anniversary there even though it is about 40 miles from our home. I looked at the menu on line and discovered the wiener schnitzel and that sealed the deal. Our food was outstanding and the service was attentive without being obtrusive. We even had dessert which was yummy, too!

I would have given this an overall 5 star rating but the brunch was under par, offering no salads or even veggies of any kind let alone much in the way of healthy food choices except for fruit which was not good.
The setting and ambiance is spectacular especially sitting on the patio overlooking the lake and would recommend going for that alone. Service was exceptional as well. We were there for Fathers Day brunch , a buffet which wasn't great but there could be better food options when ordering off the menu during the week.

Our family of twelve had a wonderful brunch at the Mast. Great service, delicious food, and a gorgeous place with unbeatable views of the lake. We have dined at the Golden Mast many times over the past 30 years and are never disappointed! A gem in the Lake Country!

We celebrated my husband's 49th Birthday! He ordered the "all you care to eat" Alaskan King Crab legs. He was not even finished eating the first platter of legs when our waitress brought out another full plate. He really enjoyed his meal and this was his first time at this restaurant! My son had the Tenderloin tips and I had the Duck! Very tasty and we had leftovers. For my husbands Birthday they brought him out a Strawberry Schaum Torte on the house. Our waitress was friendly and very attentive. This restaurant is a beautiful place on Okauchee Lake! This was my second time! We definately will go back!

We had not been to the golden mast for some time. Someone had commented to my wife that they had a very good experience there recently. The ambience was wonderful, the food was great, and we also enjoyed happy hour in their bar
We had a Friends and family get together at the Golden Mast Inn. The staff was very friendly. The food was delicious. The view of the lake was beautiful. The atmosphere of the restaurant and the decor was amazing. Lots of stained glass windows.
Always exceeds our expectations
We dine here several times a year for special occasions. However, it's been quite a while since we've had brunch. It was wonderful. You cannot leave the table still hungry. The food is very high quality & there is a great variety of food. The staff is very friendly, helpful & welcoming. The view is beautiful. It is directly on the lake. The ambience can be for a special occasion or a little more casual. Many locals come here & some come right from their boats. Highly recommend.
Pleasant Dining Eperience
Our first visit to the Golden Mast to celebrate our anniversary. We had a reservation for 7:00 and had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated. While some might find this annoying, we were out for a leisurely evening and didn't mind. We were seated at a window table with a nice view of the lake. Our wait staff was efficient and attentive without being intrusive. We enjoyed a fine meal, nicely presented and were surprised with a complimentary dessert in honor of our anniversary after our waitress overheard us toasting each other; a thoughtful touch. We anticipate dining at the Golden Mast again.
I took my wife and 7yo daughter here the weekend after Mother's Day as we missed our brunch on Mother's Day. All of the food was amazing and the view over the lake made it that much better. I will definitely be coming back for brunch a lot!
A fabulous experience as always, my wife and I have dined here many times and this time we brought friends and business partners who are from England. We requested a table for four with a lake view and Mr. Weissgerber accommodated us by seating us at what I feel is their best table. Our guests were thrilled and the food was exceptional from the appetizers to the entrees to the desserts.
When you want that special meal you should place the Golden Mast at the top of your list!
Great Mother's Day Brunch!
We went as a group of seven, celebrating Mother's Day. The brunch was very plentiful and delicious. We were the last seating (2:00) but we all felt like we got plenty to eat from the buffet, and we weren't rushed. Matter of fact, it was kind of nice because it was busy and noisy at first, but got better as other people left. We were seated outside under a canopy with a gorgeous view of Okauchee Lake!

Generally we really enjoy the Golden Mast. Unfortunately or Mothers Day experience was very poor due to seating arrangements. I understand management is maximizing seating capacity for a Mother's Day brunch, but the seating accommodations ruined a special meal. In order to accommodate a very large family there were several tables end to end, but it was still necessary to put chairs at the table ends. Our booth/table with 2 additional chairs (along with booth seating) forced my chair to be back to back against the chair of the large tables end chair. Unfortunately the only pathway to and from the buffet was between my chair and the chair at my back. Most people had to turn sideways to get between the two chairs. There was absolutely no way to create any more space between the chairs because of the awkward setup. At times a small line of people formed waiting to pass in each direction. Conservatively I would say my chair was bumped at least 100 times. Our young waitress apologized several times as I'm sure she could see how disruptive this was. We had already waited long past our reservation time so I didn't want to wait for another table. But for a $150.00+ brunch, I consider this to be unacceptable.
Mothers' Day Celebration
Seated promptly at time of reservation by the owner. Flowers ordered were at the reception desk and ready to be placed on the table. Requested window table was accommodated. Waitress was cheerful and met every request in a timely fashion. Buffet was easily accessible and food was very good.
My daughters and I had a 12:30 reservation for Mother's Day brunch. We checked in and when we hadn't been seated after waiting 20 minutes, I checked at the hostess stand and they'd forgotten to transfer our name to the "list" from the reservation book. We were finally seated at a two-top which had been made into a three-top - very tiny and right under a drafty vent! The waitress explained that champagne was included, so one of my daughters and I ordered mimosas, thinking this would be included as well. If we'd gone to the brunch line and gotten glasses of orange juice and ordered the free champagne we would've been ok, but when the bill came, I was charged $14 for those 2 drinks. Which I paid. The food was pretty good, but the coffee was not hot and service was slow. Would not recommend.
Mother's Day 2016
Our wait was longer than expected. Reservation was at 12:30, we were not seated until 1:15. It was a little frustrating because we had children with us. However the food was excellent and the wait staff were very pleasant and attentive. Great value and beautiful scenery. Our group was impressed with Golden Mast, it was their 1st time there for a majority .
Not all dinners created equal
Ordered the Elk dinner & was bit disappointed in portion size. Cost over $35, & not enough meat to justify cost. Should have ordered steak, or prime rib. Will know better next time! Still a wonderful place for special celebrations.
