Ate dinner here with another couple and it was to celebrate her birthday. I mentioned to the waitress that it was her birthday and she gave her a free dessert which was very nice. Love the atmosphere and it was nicely decorated for Christmas which added to the evening. The wine she recommended was delicious! The special was sliced Tenderloin... More

At the lake again for a business meeting. Found this restaurant close to the resort. Husband ordered the special - pasta with steak and blue cheese. Plentiful meal but was lacking in true favors. I order the stuffed white fish - good flavor but fish was overpowered with red sauce wasn't very good. Service was excellent, and meal was reasonably... More

My wife and I had high expectations as we sat down for dinner on the screened porch of this establishment. We had seen the reviews on this site, as well as a word of mouth recommendation from a friend. All in all, our experience was less than satisfactory. Our server, Joanie, was attentive at first, but then abandoned us for... More

Incredible honesty and great menu diversity, along with a great view! We came as a full family and enjoyed a top tier steakhouse experience. I also prodded the wait staff on their menu, and they were very open about what was canned / fresh / etc. the whole works. They offered great service and were super attentive to our table.

Wonderful summer evening sitting outside on the screened porch. Delicious food - including decadent desserts. Beautiful view of the lake with wildlife (deer and wild turkeys) just below. Reasonably priced and friendly wait staff. Would highly recommend.

This is a good place to meet for happy hour. The bar was busy with drink specials and good food deals. The regular restaurant was okay. The food was a little cold, so it doesn't get five stars. I will go here again and give it another try.
