Kewaunee is a great place to have access to Lake Michigan and all the gorgeous scenery without all the hustle and bustle of the city or Door County. It's gorgeous bluffs with a whole lot less people. Have a spectacular steak with stunning views. Located at N110 WI-42, Kewaunee, WI 54216.
3. Al Corso Restaurant - Collins
Perched right on the edge of Collins March State Wildlife Area a little west of Manitowoc, there's pretty much no other view like this anywhere. You'll never know what wildlife you might see out the window. To top it off, this place has a stellar menu and folks rave about a meal here.

4. Copper Dock - Hubertus
Another awesome option just a short drive from Milwaukee, Copper Dock on Friess Lake comes with some pretty awesome bluffs alongside the lake views. And they've got a stellar patio and tons of windows to let you enjoy it. Located at 1474 E Friess Lake Dr.,
Hubertus, WI 53033.
5. The Dirty Oar - Nekoosa
More stunning lake views, this time facing west so you can enjoy the sunset. Add in some old school supper club charm and this place is pretty much perfect. Located at 1682 Apache Ln, Nekoosa, WI 54457.
6. The Edgewater Supper Club
A unique location right off the Rock River makes dinner here charming and relaxing. Folks liken it to hanging out in your (very cool) grandparents' basement, and they say the seafood is top notch. Located at 3522 Co Rd K, Jefferson, WI 53549.
7. The English Inn - Fish Creek
This gorgeous, stately supper club is on Door County, but isn't the typical lake view. Instead, you're surrounded by lush vegetation and feel like you're far, far away from it all. Located at 3713 Hwy 42., Fish Creek, WI 54212.
8. Florian II Lakeshore Supper Club - Bailey's Harbor
These are the kind of views you come to Door County for. The bar is huge, the vibe is 70s and the Prime Rib is must-try. Located at 8048 State Hwy 57
Baileys Harbor, WI 54202.
9. Four Seasons Supper Club - Arbor Vitae
Not only is this place on Big Arbor Vitae Lake, but it's on a little peninsula that juts out, giving you panoramic views. Just a few tables and no reservations taken on Friday nights do mean a wait, but the patio alone is worth it. Located at 10338 Big Arbor Vitae Dr, Woodruff, WI 54568.
10. The Hob Nob - Racine
For more than 60 years The Hob Nob has been serving up classic supper club realness along Lake Michigan in Racine. Now it's adorably kitschy and retro and basically the quintessential supper club experience.
11. Mazurek's Buffalo Lake Supper Club - Montello
When the lake is so calm and the sky so blue that you're not actually sure where the reflection is, you know this is one heck of a gorgeous spot. Go for a full supper club meal experience, or just stop in for a burger and the view. Located at Co Rd C, Montello, WI 53949.

16. Sunset Bay on Solberg Lake - Phillips
