eh

The service was good, the food just so-so. The seafood itself was good but the accompaniments were less than stellar. We ordered the Lobster Bisque which was definitely not a bisque at all. If that is what you are looking for, don't bother.

We should have turned around the minute we walked into this run down restaurant and found it completely empty on a Saturday night. Unfortunately we stayed and the food was beyond terrible. The "lobster bisque" was anything but. I'm not sure what was in it, but it definitely wasn't lobster and bisque it was not. I thought I'd be safe... More

My husband and I have been going out to Geneva on the Lake for several years and had always wanted to try this place. This past Thursday we gave it a whirl. I regret it. First, it took our server about 10 minutes to even notice we were there (and there was only us and one other couple in the... More

My wife and I went there Labor Day 2014 and I had Never been there before. Had the mushroom burger, which was excellent! The service was great and the young red-headed bartender was very friendly.

This is not a fancy restaurant, but had a lot of character. The bar area has a big old shooting gallery from an old carnival, and they set it off every once in awhile. Loved it. The mushroom burger was to die for. Chunks of mushrooms with onions, no meat, and just delicious. Homemade potato chips also very good!

Couldn't wait to try this place because I love seafood. The menu choices left a lot to be desired, and I finally decided to try the special (perch). Received a few small pieces that had so many bones in it that I left it on the plate...and no taste or seasoning, along with pasty potatoes with melted garlic butter on... More
