“Nice view, but beware of going on a busy day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Positives: My first experience at Beavers was during the Memorial Day holiday weekend. The docks are very new, and there were a few girls working on the docks to help tie up boats. Its also in a good spot with not too much wake to knock the boats around. Our server was very friendly, and there is lots of outdoor seating with nice views of the lake near the dam.

Negatives: You would expect a Lake restaurant to be well prepared for the holiday weekend, but Beavers staff certainly did not seem to be. After a while of waiting for our food, the waitress came to our table and apologized, saying that the kitchen staff was "freaking out" over the number of orders coming in. It took over an hour for our food to come, and some of the side dishes were incorrect. The food was decent, but I think I would only rate it as such because I was so hungry after waiting so long. And the restaurant was no where near at full capacity, and many tables were just having cocktails.

I'm afraid of what is going to happen at Beavers during the lake race weekends or other holiday weekends. It would probably be an amazing place if they could serve food more promptly.

“Nice atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

It's fun to eat at the waterside and have the beautiful scenery. The atmosphere was nice. The food was pretty good, but nothing exceptional.
