“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

I've been coming here two or three times a year for at least 3 or 4 years. Have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. It is about 2 or 3 dollars more than some other restaurants for similar food. Lobster and scallops are good, but friends who have ordered other item rather than seafood have been happy.

“Good view, bad food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Do not order the crab cakes. There was hardly any crab and the filling was mushy bread and tasteless. I had lipstick on my water glass. The server asked if we were in a hurry and after we said no he said good. There were 4 other tables besides us. It was pitiful service and food for a place that was recommended to us. Don't waste your time!

“Great food - good atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

I loved sitting on the enclosed porch overlooking the water. The service was excellent. The food was fantastic! Not a lot of variety though. However, the specials were off the hook. I wanted to try each one.

“Would never go back!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We went for dinner a party of 8. The service was slow but friendly. It took over 15 min.for the waitress to return to take our drink order and over 15 for the drinks to come out. When we ordered our food it took more then 15min for the salads to come out and another 20 min before our meals to appear. To say the least my stuffed sole was full of bones. They replaced it but the replaced was cold in the middle and was all bread crumbs they forgot the seafood. My niece got the wrong meal. My brother in-law steak was tough. They manger didn't do anything to off set all the problems.

“Average Food, Great View of Lake Champlain”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Prices went up while the quality of food has declined. The service has also gotten slower by some of the wait staff. The owner is on premises quite a bit. The view is outstanding, but the food has gone from above average to only average quality. You can find better food at a lower price.
