Food not as good as 2014

Update on last years review. New owners. The food, although is acceptable, is not near as good as last year. They must have a new chef. The shrimp is OK but nothing like last year. Still a nice view of the lake.

We make a trip to this restaurant almost every time we visit the north woods. The location is great to stop by during a ride on the lake. Great view and easy to park the boat. This weekend our group of 3 families was extremely disappointed and will not be visiting again. It was a holiday weekend, so we understood... More

I live in this area so this is one of our stops while boating. It can get pretty busy....and at times there is a back up of boats waiting for a spot to park their boat. At times it can be my favorite----the food can at times be excellent..............then..........it can be so...so! Maybe they have different chefs. It's a fun... More

Stopped here for drinks while boating. Great spot to stop for a drink and enjoy the view. Can't speak to the food since only had drinks. This was in Sept after Labor Day so service was no problem. Sat out on Deck and enjoyed best Bloody Mary with all the trimmings. Highly recommend for a drink.

Stopped here twice while on vacation on Lake Tomahawk. My mom said their crab cakes were the best she has ever had! All the food we had was great as was the service.

Poorly trained staff, horrendous food, stomach-churning sanitation practices (coarse hair in your dipping sauce, anyone?). We ordered the lobster mac and cheese thinking it's hard to go wrong with only three ingredients, but we were oh so wrong. Lobster dumped out of a can on top of undercooked noodles and tasteless sauce. Staff couldn't answer the most basic questions about... More

On our visit, we needed to wait about 40 minutes to be seated, which was decent for lunch time. Our server took at least 15-20min to bring us our appetizer. Finally after waiting almost 45 minutes, our food was brought. The buns we were soggy, the waffle fries were luke-warm, and our server only checked with us once. Everyone seemed... More

So for $10 I got a handful of packaged romaine lettuce sprinkled with Parmesan cheese from a container and a plastic cup of dressing from another container. Are you out of your mind? Needless to say I didn't pay for it. Seriously, how can you own a place and serve that? Locals do not go here and everything they serve... More

Best shrimp I have had outside of New Orleans. Service could have been better, waitresses got slammed with a busy crowd on Friday afternoon. Very nice lakeside atmosphere and view!

We waited over 45 minutes with still no food while others that arrived after us received theirs. As others have stated-no visible management noted as well as understaffed. Finally left when "our food ticket got stuck in the printer" and the food was never prepared 50 minutes after arriving. I am confused on how they stay open.
