Haven't tried the food yet as recently left. The help of the staff, however, was outstanding when our daughter (who has epilepsy) needed space and courtesy. Phenomenal. Thank you.

Messed up drink and food order. Cheese sticks were horrible. Steak Burger was ok, but didn't get full order. Wouldn't go back for lunch. Not even really busy!

Friday boat trip stop! The shrimp is always good and the beef kabob was fantastic. The service was good. Bartender served Mai tai's which were delicious.

Nice place to let your hair down. An open "communal" type place. Huge bar. Nice deck/patio area in season. Overlooks the boat launch and lake. Good bar food. It is one of those order at the counter and pick it up yourself. You will not...More

Relax and have a drink and some reasonably priced food, while watching the boats come and go. A great way to relax with friends or family.
