The ice cream is from Mullen's in Watertown. Exceptional.
Great place for our kids to gather and play board games!
The Kiltie Drive-In Custard
One of Oconomowoc's treasures. A true drive-in, open Spring through
Fall. Famous for it's Kiltieburger- a sloppy joe, on the spicy side, that
comes with a dill pickle slice. Their Ice Tea is "sun-made." The onion rings
are real whole onion rings! The custard is to die for. Bonnie Banana
sundae is my vice. And for the kids: an animal circus sundae -kid-sized
with animal cookies. A popular hang out. Very Casual. Very Kid Friendly.
Open during the summer. Closed by Labor Day.
Golosi's Gelato Cafe
125 E. Wisconsin Avenue, downtown Oconomowoc
The best Gelato this side of the Atlantic ocean. Many flavors. My
favorite is pistachio and popcorn. They even have Smurf!
Ron's Cozy Corner, Okauchee
Small restaurant but super busy on Fish Fry
Fridays, especially in the summer. Known for
Broasted Chicken.

Fong's Garden, downtown Oconomowoc
The original Chinese restaurant in
Oconomowoc. There are three more, but this
one is "sit down". The others are more take
out or delivery.

Rosati's Pizzeria & Pastaria,
Southside of Oconomowoc / franchise
with a sports bar room. Delivery but delicious
food.

Chili's "franchise" restaurant
Always busy. Not much of a food selection
unless you like hot.

Burke's Lakeside Restaurant
I had high hopes for this one, on the old
Chuck's supper club site - Silver Lake. It's
trying to be all different kinds of a
restaurant/bar. Not kid friendly. My son
"dislikes" the food.

The Chocolate Factory

Southside of Oconomowoc
Known for soups, subs and ice cream.
