They take reasonably sized groups - we had 16 people. So it is good for socializing. The food is standard, and okay, nothing to rave about, but good for the money.

Excellent food with your choice from a burger to a full course meal! Food is always delicious with a warm atmosphere and seating overlooking the lake and great areas for sports fans to gather to watch their favorite team.

Just have to say, the food and service was excellent. Wednesday we had the fried fish and fries for two. The special of the day. Loads of fries and plenty of fish. So much fish we could not finish it all, so we took it home

Relaxed atmosphere with a wide variety of foods. The chowder is excellent and my brothers can't get enough of their Buffalo style frogs legs and gator bites. Its almost always 2-1 drinks and the food is very well priced.
