Great view of Lake Freeman! There are public docks at which you may park your boat while you come in & eat! It is family oriented, yet has a full bar for cocktails. Recently renovated. They offer seasonal al-fresco dining on the deck along the lake, and on certain nights, live entertainment.

We went at kind of an off peak time. Staff was very friendly but preparing for dinner service. The outdoor eating was excellent. Food was good with generous portions. We will definitely return!

Overcharged for items on bill and just paid them because service was the slowest I have ever seen. Food just barely edible. Not worth the price for sure! told mgmt. about our experience and they just made excuses... More

Nice and relaxing after a day of driving. Sat on the outside deck overlooking over the water. Had drinks and yummy appetizers. A very pleasant surprise in this little town.

My son had a birthday recently and wanted to go out for dinner before he played at the Skyroom that evening. He was in the mood for Mexican food but no Mexican restaurants were open because of it being July 4th. We found this place open and glad we did!! It's first come, first served, no reservations. But it was... More

About only place around here where you can set on the deck next to the lake and eat or drink. Good lunch at moderate price large inside and outside dinning.
