We had dinner here three nights in a row and really enjoyed all three nights. The menu is simple with a good range of selections. Dinner and drinks was reasonably priced and the service was excellent. Staff are friendly and kind. I recommend this place.

You are dining lake side and the lake is lovely. The food was pretty good, but the view is the best. Worth a visit for the views.

The service was great, the food was really classy - for a mid-price restaurant, we seemed to be getting top priced... More
