You take a succulent chunk of lobster and dip it in a delicious corn batter and fry it. Serve up 4 on a plate with an incredible stone ground mustard...I can't even explain how much I enjoyed that! Oh and there was some kind of a relish in a small cup in the middle of the plate that was pretty... More

Sunday brunch (with a reservation) was poor. A large group had been in earlier and left the place dirty, overwhelmed and poorly staffed. Food average. Décor was terrible dated.

We really liked this place and ate there twice...great view of the lake if you eat outdoors, which we did one of the nights. They offered vegetarian options, which I needed and both meals were very good. Staff was friendly and service was good!

Food was okay....not bad but just ok. Would suggest the outside terrace have the option to completely block weather elements as rain does happen and can spoil the night.

This restaurant has a great view of the lake, and a very comfortable atmosphere. The food is very good, although they were extremely slow in getting the food to you. Also, the service in general is a little slow on drink refills, etc... Not sure why things were slow, because it wasn't that busy in the restaurant.

We went for Mother's Day's brunch, expecting a wonderful buffet. The meal was just OK and they ran out of food and did not refill. The hostess was supposed to give out roses and when asked, it was obvious that she forgot or couldn't care less.
