Low quality food with out taste. To many items on the menue for a lake side restaurant. They should find a few items and try to cook them correct rather then try for an expanded menue

Met several couples at Abigails. Had good time relaxing with a few of the lake. Friendly staff and good food. Nothing fancy.
