food was ok, view was decent, service was average

The food here was OK. Being right on the lake, it could be a fun place to eat and watch the ducks and the boaters. I gave it a poor rating because of their smoking policy. There is no place there where you can sit and not be surrounded by smoke from all the smokers. The non-smoking section is inside... More

this place can be very dead at times we did have a good Saturday here but during the week it was boring and the food was decent but was a little over for the quality!

Very relaxed place to eat and have a drink! The view is awesome, wait staff is very attentive! You can enjoy the water and pull up in your boat at the docks. Great place to bring friends!

My wife and I came for an afternoon away from the kids. There was a band playing and we had good service. It was a great summer day out.

The back porch of the eponymous restaurant was a good place for a burger as the sun went down. Tag-team servers were very efficient.

They have a new menu coming out next week. Prices have doubled. I ordered a quesadilla that is 5.49 on menu. (4 small triangles with no sides). On the new menu next week, it is $10.99. DOUBLE!! They tried to charge me that, but did change it when we complained. Waitress was nice, but prices will be outrageous.

We walk in and every table looked like they dont have anyone who cares to clean tables. Of the dirty tables we selected we proceeded to stand by that table waiting to be serviced and watched helpless as waitress after waitress walks past us. After relocating to the only clean table on the patio after more failed attempts at flagging... More

We've been here a number of times. When it's nice weather on the lake and you want to eat, you can usually get a table quickly vs Sams boat or Wolfies. We've always known that the service is usually not stellar and just accept it and the food isn't anything to yell about... Today, the service was better than usual,... More
