TOWN OF DELAVAN — The Village Supper Club on Delavan Lake reopens this week, but it may be a while before visitors have a chance to check it out.
Reservations are fully booked for this coming weekend, however there are openings beginning next Thursday.
The restaurant is open from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursdays and 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday’s and Saturdays.
To prepare for the opening, the restaurant had a soft opening a week ago to positive reviews online.
The longtime dining destination on the eastern shore of beautiful Lake Delavan has been totally rebuilt under new owners, Loretta and Allan Kaplan. Their family-owned restaurant promises to offer a traditional and nostalgic supper club dining experience.
“Our vision for The Village Supper Club is to honor the restaurant’s past while creating an updated, yet traditional family-friendly supper club experience,” Loretta Kaplan said when construction began.
Chris and Dave Marsicano sold the business in 2021 that had been in their family for more than 50 years.
The new design draws on the nostalgia of the original club dating back to its opening in the 1900s with additions in the 50s, 70s and 80s.
An asymmetric stone fireplace will be prominently featured at the entry for an unmistakable sense of arrival.
Inside, an expansive A-frame roof structure was designed to hover over the main bar and dining areas to create a spacious interior with an all-glass façade, perfect for enjoying lakeside sunsets.
With plentiful outdoor seating, the design embraces lake life where the dock will lead to a large deck that will welcome boaters and their families to dine in or carry out and relax at their leisure.
The Kaplans say they hope that the new supper club will become a local favorite for families and foodies alike.
