4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

A fun place to wine and dine right by the lake side, a very good atmosphere. The food was fine and service good.

“A Very Pleasant Outing[s]”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Have been to this place several times and the service is always friendly, the food is good and the view from the "Back Porch" in summer is lovely. Will be back. Have never encountered anything but friendliness even at their busiest.

“Gluten allergy”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Not many gluten free options. They used to have a great salad but do not offer it anymore so stopped going.

“Best patio in Burlington”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

If you can get a table on the patio on a nice day it's an excellent place. But if you end up having to sit inside it's just an average restaurant. Food is fine.

Great bar food, and great views! We love this. Restaurant more in the summer when we can sit on the back deck!
