House rolls down the hill

This used to be a great place for lunch & breakfast but I would not go there again. View & setting is still wonderful but the food is like any greasy spoon. Menu selections are very limited. It's always weird to walk into a once very popular restaurant to find it almost empty. They won't survive... read more

Parking lot is used for overflow from the Watermark, but other than THAT - this place is closed up tighter than a drum! - It would be lovely if someone went in and opened up another restaurant there, The lake view is wonderful!

This was at one time a good place, except for the service. People planning on a restaurant business in any area need to note that the lack of service training was, I believe, its downfall.

This is a nice place to eat. It has a simple but ample menu for breakfast. I had the egg, cheese and muffin sandwich and it was great-hot and juicy.

My husband and I stopped here for breakfast one weekend summer morning and it was really great. Service was wonderful, food was really good and liked the ambiance of the restaurant. Would definitely go back.

The food was good but there was very little of it. We had lunch salads, soup, and one person had a chicken salad sandwich ona croissant. Barely enough chicken salad to see it between the corissant bun. Also I guess we just expected more by way of presentation. Elegant setting with linen tablecloths and napkins but the food presentation left... More

My wife and I stopped as the place looked nice and a great location. We waited at least 15 minutes at the hostess station....no one there....people ahead of us finally just left. We peaked into the restaurant and the "harried waitress" told us to go back to the front and a hostess would come...about five minutes later she did show... More

Food was delicious. Decor is very nice - open and airy. Service was a little slow but we weren't in a hurry.
