You’ll enjoy the classic menu featuring prime rib, seafood, and hand-crafted cocktails. With the dining patio 30 feet from the shore of beautiful Lake Winnebago, your three-course meal is served with an unbelievable view. As an added bonus, Jim and Linda’s offers live music on the patio for its guests on summer weekends.
