This is a nice restaurant on the lake with outdoor seating and live music. Lots of room to dine in, good food, very pleasant staff. Overall, a nice relaxed dining experience. Cheese curds were delicious and their drinks are very reasonably priced.

Food is just ok. Drinks are fine although waitress forgot how to make the UV bowl we ordered and the end result was slightly gross. Great outside patio area though.
