That's right folks, if you are on Lake Hamilton and the sun is really starting to get hot you can park your rig right at this restaurant and go in for a cold one or some really good food. I had the crab legs last time I went, way good. My husband had the walleye, a little overcooked but hey,... read more

Go early. Was busy and we waited over an hour for outside seating. Food was good. Had fried shrimp and husband had fried fish. Boiled potatoes were the best part. Tried the speciality drinks. Not a fan. Enjoyed the view while we ate. Nice breeze. Wish people didn't smoke out there but with the breeze it wasn't too bad.

We took some friends to eat here and it was terrible. The most expensive beer and food in Hot Springs. I was completely disappointed with the experience. We have been going here for years and have sen a steady decline, but this trip did me in. We usually go by boat and this is the nice thing about the restaurant.... More

We have eaten here many times on business/pleasure trips. They have a wide variety of food to choose from. Delicious. Tonight I had the grouper with a Dijon cream sauce. Very light and tasty. Great view overlooking the water. Relaxing and fun place to go with friends. Eating areas are inside and out.

Started with some really nice sized oysters on the half shell. Good start. Then went to a pretty average popcorn shrimp dinner. Sides were good. Service was excellent.

One of our favorite places to eat when we are in town. We thoroughly enjoy the patio. Service was a little slow, however we were there at 6:00 on a Saturday night on a nice day.

Went with a group of friends this week. Experience of being on the lake was a plus. We wanted to dine on the deck but weather wasn't cooperating. I had one of their platters and my husband had the crab cake dinner. Mine was good but I thought overpriced for the amt of fish. Husband said his crab cakes were... More

Food was delicious! Staff were friendly. The outside seating area is really cool, right on Lake Hamilton. There are candy dispensers filled with pellets you can get to feed all the beggers- birds, ducks, geese, fish, and turtles. Wish I lived closer so I could go again!

We came here on the advice of the owner of the B&B where we were staying. We were looking for casual and good food. We sat outside and were lucky not to have someone smoking near us. We loved watching the kids feed the ducks and the turtles. In fact we enjoyed our meal so much we went back the... More
