Get a little history of the area while having a drink. The bartender is usually good about telling the story of the hidden game behind the wall and will even start it up to show how it works. The food is ok. There arent many choices for actual restaurants with wait staff on the strip and this is... read more

The owners were so nice, and the restaurant was pretty cool. They decorated it very nice. The food was amazing. My husband loved everything about it. The salad was fresh and my burger was fantastic. We will definitely go back again.

We have eaten here several times and it is our favorite restaurant in Geneva on the Lake. We like it better than the 2 'fancy' restaurants here. They specialize in seafood but have steak, pasta, and other things on the menu. We started with their smoked lobster dip. Honestly this might be the best appetizer I've ever had. It is... More

The past 2 vacations we have eaten here and really enjoyed the food and ambiance. The smoked lobster dip is wonderful and Patt, who I mistakenly called Sandy, is a great cook and enjoyable to visit with. You must see the old time shooting gallery that is behind the bar and get some history on it. We look forward to... More

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

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.

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.
