Great this time

Since we have a vacation cabin here, we visit this place several times a year. This time our wait was 45 min, but when we were seated we were waited on quick . The shrimp salad and gumbo was very good. Sitting on the edge of the lake is always good !!

I can't get the hype about this restaurant in Hot Springs. It is almost impossible to compare with the one in Galveston. The catfish wasn't fresh, way too mushy the grilled one, and the grouper, frozen, is definitely not the same as the fresh one. Fried catfish was tasty and their french fries were very good, same for their mango... More

Busy place, no reservations taken, but even with a 40 minute wait we enjoyed sitting on the dock looking at the lake. The food was fresh and served hot. It was dark in the main dining area, but eating out on the deck was nice looking out at the lake.

Came here for dinner while on vacation. It's a little pricey but the food was very good. You are paying for the views and it's nice. The key lime pie was huge!

Went to this place based on recommendation of our resort manager - we were not disappointed. The wait staff was great, the food was great. We both had the grilled chicken breast with skewered shrimp (different seasonings). The wharf has both indoor and outdoor seating and a full bar. We sat indoors next to a window overlooking the lake.

This place was so dark when we walked in. It was also very busy! I had fried shrimp, red potatoes and hushpuppies. AWESOME hushpuppies and great potatoes. Shrimp was a bit stringy. Service was slow.

Oysters on a half shell, awesome!!!! They also have great seafood, steaks, and pasta. It has seating on a covered patio that looks out on the water. Great place for a date or bring the family. You won't be disappointed by anything you order.

Expect a wait but it is well worth it. The service was prompt considering the place was packed. We will be back on our next visit.
