Service was pretty good. Food was great. Portion size was great. The place was very clean with a nice atmosphere. Prices are fair. There isn't a lot of menu variety, and that's the only drawback. Location is not bad with a very nice lake view.

I'm local, we eat here very often. The Tuesday night special is our favorite. Never had a bad experience here except sitting on the patio in July, (uncovered section). That's not their fault though.

The food was good but the view awesome. Order the chicken nacho appetizer, delicious!! The waitress recommended steak because they are a steak house but the hotel clerk suggested the chicken nachos, yum! With a steak it was too much food, so ordered a Bourbon Burger. Delicious!!! Didn't have room for Tuesday's $1 deserts but they too looked yummy.

A group of us had a variety of appetizers and dinners and the food was uniformly good. The downside was rushed service--not sure why since it was early and there were plenty of open tables. Dessert was previewed and promoted soon after the entrees came...why? Then, dessert menus were plopped down and dessert orders taken while several people were still... More

They feature daily specials for the evening crowd. It's worth a visit or 2 just to hear the wait staff describe the contents, preparations, sauces and cooking style of the daily features. Great steaks, cooked to perfection, served with tasty sides, full of flavor.

Best food we ate while on our Honeymoon in Burnside (lake Cumberland) Kentucky. Seating & wait staff was beyond nice & attentive. We went the week of Thanksgiving and they had the place beautifully lit up inside with Christmas décor. Beautiful view over the water, this would be a great place for a date. Steak & Potatoes au gratin were... More

We used to go here regularly for their fine food, great wait staff and the view of the lake of course. The last two visits, our last, were very disappointing. Crunchy rice pilaf with the salmon was a very unwelcome surprise. Can't believe the chef let that plate leave the kitchen. Everyone has an off day now and then though,... More

Had the 555 shrimp platter, and the shrimp were deliciously fresh. Judging by that and my friend's plates, the food looked well-portioned, freshly made, and yummy. The service could have been a little better, but it was late toward the end of their business hours. The dining room interior seemed too casual and outdated - more like a diner stye... More

This was our first chance to stop in since the spring, and we left wondering why we had waited so long. These guys never disappoint, but today was absolutely perfect mainly due to our server (whose name, uncharacteristically for me, I failed to write down). She made wonderful suggestions and never once did it feel like "upselling". No, she was... More
