We had a delicious appetizer of whitefish pate, local cheeses and meats, followed by a summer berry salad. The highlight was walleye and whitefish. Our server was very nice. The restaurant is off the beaten path - it is well worth the time to drive to it.

Good quality food in a pleasant and informal setting. I ordered a steak rare. My wife ordered salmon. Steak arrived almost medium but I accepted it rather than wait and eat after the rest of my group was done eating. Was still tender and I enjoyed it. Salmon was prepared well. Risotto accompanying the salmon was excellent. My mashed potatoes... More

Wonderful food, tasty, served to delight the eye and the palate. Friendly service with expertise. Relaxing with great music outside. To listen, we just opened the window! It is on the pricey side but worth every penny.

One of the most enjoyable dining experiences in the area. Menu is mostly familiar stuff with a few "different" items for excitement - all prepared and served with excellence in an enjoyable setting right on the lake.

Went here for dinner with friends and the food was great with a pleasant view of the lake. Although they were busy, the waitress ( Kristine ) did a very good job of taking care of us with our dinner and drinks.

At the positive recommendation of a friend, my husband and I stopped here on our way home from a road trip. We were pleasantly surprised by the entire experience. Fortunately we arrived early, otherwise I'm not sure we would have been able to get a table. Their reservation book was full. The ambience was lake side cabin charming. The service... More
