Not bad seafood

Good food, lots of options and of course the location on the water is great. A little pricey, though.

Love to go there one summer eve for dinner overlooking the lake and boats. A comfortable place to eat a good meal and enjoy the scenery.

We came here with a large party for Sunday brunch and they were able to accommodate us. I had the shrimp and grits...and I could have had more. In fact I finished off my mom's Biscuits and Gravy because it was too rich for her. They make both with a bit of She-Crab soup in it and it was tasty.... More

Came for Sunday brunch as we passed through Columbia on a road trip. Great stop. Sat on the covered porch, with lake views. Got the fried green tomato blt and the bacon and egg burger...both very good. Split sides of potatoes, grits, and fruit. Yum!

Delicious food, but not a huge menu. No draft beer. Great service. A nice spot on Lake Murray though, with live music playing.

I have been here several times and first of all the indoor portion is the more "fine dining" experience. Outside at the quarterdeck is the outdoor, more laid back people coming off of their boats, live band side of things! Either way they are both great experiences for me! At quarter deck loved the frozen sugar cookie drink and Reuben... More

We called ahead and had boat parking for our boat. Assistance parking and getting off boat. There was a band playing on the deck. Due to the temperature, we chose to eat on the deck of the restaurant. We thought it was going to be okay...could hear music and see the water. Unfortunately they do not have bamboo shades to...
