West Bend, WI – There are new owners in place at Silver Lake Country Inn, 5602 Peters Drive in the town of West Bend and have no fear, their game plan is to “not change a thing.”
Bill Driscoll and Ann Pfeffer are the new owners along with Faith Summerfield, Kate Sheffield. The three ladies met while working the past 10 years in the restaurant industry in Cedarburg, WI.
“Kate oversees the bar area and Faith is in the kitchen with me along with front of house,” said Pfeffer.
The restaurant and apartment above first went on the market in June 2021. “Located on Silver Lake in the Town of West Bend is the famous Silver Lake Country Inn. Known for its delicious food, great prices and a fun Supper Club atmosphere. This ”turn key” and extremely successful business is truly a hidden gem.”

A couple of hot-ticket menu items that remain a fan favorite include all-you-can-eat ribs and all-you-can-eat lake perch. “We also have the deep-fried shrimp or peel-and-eat shrimp,” said Pfeffer.
The new owners are looking for more details on the history of the establishment. A few notes from the past are listed on the restaurant’s website (see below), but Driscoll said he would like to know more about when the place was called ‘Hathaway’s or Kuhn’s Tavern.
Hathaways bought the business from Jerry Faber and his wife Carol in the 70’s. They called it JC’s Silver Lake Resort. Prior to that it was owned by Lloyd and Marge Lynn; Lynn’s Resort.
