Very good food

We have been up there quite a few times and everything we have had was yummy! From steak to pizza it was good and service was very good also.

We had whitefish and perch with waffle fries that was delicious. Service was attentive and friendly. Waitress gave us a discount on our bill and coupons for their other restaurant because this location was going to close for the season and they were out of the beverages we first ordered. They had a good selection, so it wasn't hard to... More

The service was pretty good considering that a bus came in just after we ordered our food. I had the olive burger and my boyfriend had 1/3 lb black angus burger. Both came out just as we ordered them. I had an iced tea and my boyfriend had a diet pop. The waitresses were hustling to get the bus served... More

Restaurant was busy. Food was really good, but our waitress was the best I have ever seen. She handled our group of 10 with a great sense of humor and ease that you don't see everyday. My daughter and myself told her we thought she was outstanding. I'm sorry I forgot her name. She was fantastic.

The service was excellent, the waitress was very helpful when deciding on what to try. My husband and I tried the fried pickles, ribs, and lake perch basket. Best food I've ever had. The fried pickles are a must, I've tried fried pickles just about everywhere, here they were the best! Thanks for making our night after a long day... More

Horrible service, we waited an hour for our food and walked out as it arrived. We complained to manager who could care less, Everyone around us were complaining too. No idea how they are still in business.

Not much of a variety on menu. Very small dining area. Waitstaff were very nice and polite. Need more healthy selections on menu.

It was close to the motel so we tried it for supper. A lot of fried food on the menu and since I had fried fish for lunch I had to search to find something. I ended up with a hamburger and it was good. Good service, small, with beachy decorations. It was ok.

Gator tail app was great. I had the whitefish sandwich which was good, my daughter ordered popcorn chicken which she liked, but my aunt's burger was thin and dry. On the receipt we noticed he put it in as "well done" which we never asked for. That may have been the problem. Otherwise a good option!

Waitress was pleasant, told us of some places the locals go to get good prices on firewood, groceries, etc. Food recommendations were pretty good too.
