“Not what we expected.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Chose to eat the first night's dinner here. Looking over the menu outside there were several choices to please us both so we went in. My husband enjoyed his seafood sampler plate okay, but my chicken and potato was mediocre. The service and atmosphere were great, but the food was average for an above average price.

“Lower your expectations”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We arrived around 8:00 on Sunday evening. We inquired about the wait and asked if we could sit at the bar. We were told in a very parental tone that we could wait at the bar, "for your table." (i.e. would could not *eat* at the bar). Fine. We took a seat at the bar and received absolutely no acknowledgement for mother bartender until she was ready to wait on us. Not even a, "I'll be with you in a moment." I'd say the service was adequate. Within about 10 minutes we were seated at a table and within one a minute a server arrived with water and asked if we were ready or needed more time. I had barely opened the menu, so we said we needed a minute. Twenty minutes passed, and our waitress came and went, never returning to take our order. At 8:45 we walked out, never even having placed an order.

“Stopped for Breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Good service breakfast was good. The homemade Cinnamon Roles were not good i think someone missed the mark that day. Nice size portions. I would go back again because of friendly service.

“Good food”

We stopped in just for a quick bite after zip lining, the food was good, the chardonnay was cool and the service was very pleasant.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

I had a wonderful lake perch, my husband had prime rib and my daughter had battered jumbo shrimp. We all had a side salad and back potato with our entrée. It was all very lovely and the service was fabulous.
