We headed to the outdoor bar while waiting for a table to become available - it was nice to sit by the lake, people watch, and enjoy our drinks. We were seated at a nice table outdoors, which still have us a great view of the lake. Dinner was delicious - all of us ordering something different, and no complaints... More

Our large family enjoyed our dinners. Each meal was delicious and enjoyed. The service seemed and bit rushed, but friendly and caring.

It had potential. A beautiful setting overlooking the lake on a Saturday afternoon,and a lunch that tells me to never go back, at least not any time soon. I brought a friend from Washington to show her our area, and we decided to have lunch here. I ordered a chicken salad sandwich on a croissant. The chicken salad was dry... More

They seem to provide molasses as a side to every dish on the breakfast menu -- perhaps staff gets stuck in it? The Restaurant is extremely reasonably priced for breakfast, especially for a hotel, and the views are wonderful. There's plenty of time to enjoy the view as service is insanely slow if you sit outside. Breakfast menu was delicious... More

We visited on the 4th of July with a reservation. The restaurant was packed and so was the sand bar. Our food took over an hour a half and was not that good when we did receive it. Our server, Dana, was extra accommodating and had the manager (we did not get his name but he was very tall) come... More

This was probably the worst meal I have ever had not to mention the service. The food was horrible. We had to send one plate back and we have never done that before, Our waitress took a partial order then took another 20 minutes to return for the rest of it. She herself never served us a thing. The only... More
