“Closed.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

We liked the food. The menu changed too often. The service was not good. The management was not cohesive and I was really sad they closed. I feel they wasted a chance. That location is super and someone will make it there. It would be a great wedding location and plenty of room for bands, etc. The place is huge. So much more could have been done with it.

“Promising new waterfront dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Dropped in late (9pm) on a Friday night, parking lot packed, band playing. There wasn't anyone IN the restaurant so the friendly hostess showed us out to the patio where the music was playing.
We had a lower patio table right on the water...very nice, moonlight on the water.
Simple menu with fresh new selections apart from the same old bar food that we ALWAYS get at the lake.
We enjoyed the grilled shrimp & the gourmet sliders like none we've had before. A traditional American, German bratwurst & Mexican with some chorizo & paperback.
Nothing fancy but different & done well.
My friend told me about the goat cheese salad & crab cakes with a spicy remoulade.
Service was friendly and speedy.
We'll be back.

“Great food, great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

This is a new place with terrific food. Prices are what you should expect for waterfront dining with a view. Excellent blue cheese burger and chicken alfredo. Service was good and fast, although it was not crowded when we were there; server was very nice. It could use some atmosphere inside, and it is chopped up as others have said; but that really does not matter to me. Outside is very nice. Big bar setup, new docks with dock girls, gas dock, stage for live music on weekends. Great view of the lake. Beware of the driveway potholes if you come by car. Put more butts in the seats, and I think the rest will come around.

“Expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

No atmosphere at all. Meals were very expensive. 12.00 for a hamburger and fries. Burger was good. None of the silverware matched??
