We waited for close to an hour for our food. When it arrived, we were missing parts of the sandwiches that the menu listed being on them. Two of us ordered fish sandwiches and after all that time waiting they came out raw. The waitress was very kind and kept apologizing. None of this was her fault, she was at... More

Terrible Food and terrible customer service. Some unhappy people leaving tried to warn us but we had already ordered. Took forever to get our food and then half of it was raw. Manager had an attitude and really didn't care if we were happy or not. We won't be back and would not recommend it to ANYONE. There are too... More

The rooms were clean but in great need of tlc. The owners were fantastic! They were very friendly and welcoming! The food would have been great if the cooks were better trained so that everyone's food came out at the same time and the order was correct. We mentioned this to the waitress and she spoke with the owner and... More

Stopped in here for an extended lunch break with the kids on our last visit to the lake. We arrived early on a weekday and were promptly greeted at the dock and had someone help tie us up. then the kids hit the waterslides until lunch. For $10 each I think it's a pretty good deal. After a couple hours... More

We have done all of the above, and have a wonderful time each time. The owner, always greats us with a smile,... More
