Very disappointing after reading the reviews. I ordered the pan-seared Walleye, and it was like the chef switched the fish with a cedar plank used for the Salmon and the service was very slow on a lightly attended early evening. The beer was good though.

I had dinner there with my family and each dish was prepared with great attention to detail and aesthetics. Very satisfying with each course. Would recommend this restaurant highly.

I went with my family of four for the Mother's Day Brunch. The food was delicious and there were many choices to choose from. It was the most reasonably priced brunch in the area and a great value for the money.

I met a friend here that I had not seen in quite some time. The restaurant was not busy so it worked out well for us. We were able to visit and enjoy a good meal. Our server, Marie, once she realized this was sort of a reunion gave us the time and space to catch up. When we ordered... More

They have good food and a great buffet. They also have great steaks and fish (though I don't eat fish but others do). We would recommend this place to anyone. Good food for the price.

We have been to this place only a few times. Usually when Red Lobster was full. Fact is if you want this place for a special event you will be ignored and treated not so well. We booked well in advance for a rehearsal dinner. ( This was over 7 years ago. ) But it left enough of an impression... More
