“Great atmosphere. Not so great food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

Stopped by for q weekday lunch. Ate outside at the No Wake Zone, because the resteraunt up stairs was too food and it was a beauty of a day. NWZ only had bottled water, where we were just getting two glasses of water upstairs when we decided to go downstairs-??? Anyway, I had the spinach salad. Bagged baby spinach from the Food Lion with a FEW cranberries and walnuts sprinkled on it. No Bacon, as the menu promised. Blue cheese was served in a separate cup (yay!) to add or not. $7.50...not a great value. Hubby's BLT was ok, but he wanted a fried egg on it and was told they don't do breakfast items. Probably a great spot on weekend nights, but other than eating by the water, NWZ doesn't have much to offer.

“No Wake Zone is the outside part of Lakeview”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

No Wake Zone is a fun, extremely casual outdoor spot right on the lake. Waitress was great, friendly, efficient. Had vinegar based pork BBQ, GREAT! Didn't care for sugar on my sweet potato fries and wasn't asked if I wanted it. They were cooked to perfection though. Husband had the non vinegar pork BBQ and liked it, too. Son had wings, liked them.

“Good Food, good views & cold beer !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We have a place at Lake Anna (on the warm side) and this restaurant is not exactly close, but we always try to get there 3 or 4 times a season because the food is always good, the beers are cold and the help is always friendly. Sitting out on the deck when the weather cooperates, is a nice way to watch the boats going by, slowly now though, since the "no wake" rule went into effect.

“I woke up on an Island....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

No Wake Zone puts you in a mindset of a tropical island vacation. I've eaten there three times and never had a bad meal. I've had the burgers, the Reuben, and the steamed spice shrimp, all for a good price and done perfectly. Two out of the three times that I have gone has been with a crowd of five or more, and we were in the mood for some cheap eats, drinking some beer and enjoying people watching and No Wake Zone offered up all three in their downstairs outdoor area. It's great that is dog friendly especially for the folks who come by boat with their dogs in tow. I would never bring my poochy because he is too much of a scrapper and a begger, but most dogs that I have seen there handle it well. The servers bring them a bowl of water and they also serve doggy ice cream. If you are looking for a place with the feel of key west where you can relax, have some decent food and a few beers, this is your place. I will be a regular of The No Wake Zone.

“A nice friendly place with good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

My wife and I eat here frequently and we almost always get the snow crab legs ($13/lb on Friday nights). She gets a salad from the unlimited salad bar, I get crab soup which I will put up against anyone's. Wine comes by the glass and is adequate. The place is friendly, full of families, just a pleasant place to eat. It is a great lake side place that serves good food.
