The food was very well prepared. The escargot, and coconut shrimp were tender and extremely flavorful. The soup of the day fish chowder was amazing. The Caesar salad was also very flavorful! The main course dinner portion sizes were much more than expected. The rub on the strip steak was great, a little over done for my liking if a... More

If you are looking for gourmet dining, this is not the place. If you are looking for GREAT All-American food...THIS IS THE PLACE!!! Rib Eye done perfectly, as requested (medium rare)...perfectly seasoned. Salads, sides, and desserts are excellent. Quality food, fairly priced. DO NOT MISS THIS PLACE. Be sure to have reservations.

This is a lovely place, perfect setting right on the lake. In short, the food and service were top notch and made our visit very enjoyable. My colleague had a seafood dish while I had the ribeye. Both dishes were perfectly prepared and served nice and hot. An appetizer of smoked trout came on a platter with chopped red onions,... More

The menu is very diverse. The baking is outstanding. The portions are huge. They cook things the way you ask them to...as in walking PRIME RIB

This place is wonderful. The food ranges from steak to wonderful seafood and duck. I had lobster pie the first time I ate here and trout the second (I had spent 2 days trying to catch one of those guys, so I needed to taste one). My friend had steak both times. The wait staff was excellent, the bar is... More

Superb food and beverages in a casual Northwoods atmosphere, unpretentious, friendly. We have never had a bad meal here. There is a reason why the place is packed every weekend. Our favorite restaurant.

We had tried for 2 years to get in here for dinner. I'm not sure what the fuss is about, but it is good food. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Nice location and cozy surroundings. I'd rather just go with my husband next time, rather than bring the kids. We would go back.
