About Us...

When visiting Castle Rock Lake, it is always a great time to try some new restaurants... or returning to one of the favorites of locals, Splash Waterfront. Located in a serene bay on the fourth largest lake in Wisconsin, Splash will capture your appetite and take you to the tropics with both their food and cocktail menu. Owner, Connie Carlson has been in the restaurant business for many years and she has raised the bar in terms of quality and ambiance.

The bar is nicely sized and quaint. The dining room has plenty of seating for dining inside and out. Their bartenders are always concocting some new drink to try, so let them be your guide! Splash’s specialty drink menu is so extensive, delicious and fun. It has been voted the best Bloody Mary and Long Island Iced Tea on Castle Rock Lake both 25 oz. of indulgence! How about those 64 oz. bucket drinks? Yes, cocktails served in a sand pail... only on the beach in Wisconsin. Belly up to the bar with your friends and grab a straw.

Tropical plants and palm trees surround the outdoor dining area. The tiki torches are lit at dusk so you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets on Castle Rock Lake. Drive in off County Z to Dakota Lane in Friendship, WI in Adams County or pull up and dock at the piers to experience a wonderful indulgence of food and drink.

Sharky’s Tiki Bar is open on the weekends in the summer and invites boaters and patrons to experience a pleasing outdoor experience sipping on a cocktail and playing volleyball, bags or chatting with others overlooking the lake. 

Connie’s secret is simple. Give the customer a pleasing experience and they will come back again and again. The size of the portions of your meal are huge. You can enjoy a couple of meals on the amount of food served... just ask for a doggie bag.


The almost famous French onion soup will surely warm your heart which is a favorite of many who come just for a taste. The all-you-can-eat house salad is a home run in a large bowl with lettuce, tomato, onion, olives, croutons with house or choice dressings accompanied with a fresh baked, warm garlic bread stick.


The burgers are wildly addictive, so be careful.  See if you can finish the BIG KAHUNA served with 1 lb. of beef and 1/4 lb. cheese of your liking... and then there’s the volcano fries served up with a kick not to mention the homemade Mucho Nacho platter. See if you and five of your friends can finish off this gigantic appetizer served to your liking.


Splash’s menu is extensive and will make your decision a difficult one. Just come back and try them all. You won't be disappointed because Splash Waterfront has the best food and concoctions on Castle Rock Lake...guaranteed!

Every Friday is fish fry which offers a variety of all you can eat white fish lightly breaded or hand dipped beer battered, cod either baked or blackened, along with cold, crisp coleslaw and warm garlic bread stick, choice of housemade potato and green onion waffle (Wisconsin special), baked potato (try it loaded), rice or sauteed beans (you have to try these delicious, mouth watering veggies). Doesn’t get any better than that. Oh wait, yes all-you-can-eat shrimp is also a winner and a favorite of many. 

I am sure your inner carnivore will certainly be satisfied with their Prime Rib dinner special on Saturday night. Slow cooked and served with soup or salad and choice of potato, rice or sauteed beans, your taste buds will explode, especially if you order it blackened. If that's not enough to eat, you can add shrimp to that special. And then there is the seasonal dessert menu...

So join us at Splash Waterfront and indulge in a truly awesome dining experience with friends and family...


We hope to see you soon.


*Just be warned that during the summer months, there is such a high demand for outdoor dining at Splash Waterfront that you may have to be patient and enjoy the ambiance of your surroundings. It is truly worth the wait... taste buds guaranteed!
