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

I'm not sure why I keep giving this place second chances- I think it is because of the view. I love to eat on the lake. Today was a typical meal at the Inn: wrong food, out of food, two hour wait to receive food, and in the end a pretty tasteless meal. Also overcharged (was corrected). I want to... More

We had a wonderful outdoor table with a view of the lake and all the festivities going on in the tent too. Great apps. Nice waitress.
