Atmosphere nice. Good service. Food less than average. Ordered the fish and it was like eating rubber. The salad was just lettuce and radishes. Lettuce was woody and brown.

My family loves this place but the pocket book can only take once a vacation. Usually it's a dock up the boat lunch. Order with caution as it gets pretty pricey for a family of 5 with meals, pops and an appetizer. Enjoy it once for sure and then decide if it's worth the tourist restaurant prices. Known for their...

Ate with my husband and baby this week. While it wasn't super pricey for a resort restaurant, both meals were so bland. The view was nice, but I wouldn't return.

This place was incredible. Had a 7:15 p.m. reservation. Got sat right away. Beautiful seating over looking the lake by a nice fire pit. Our waitress was great, super attentive and speedy. They do not charge for water (at least any more) as other reviewers state. The food was incredible and could not have been better. I got shrimp tacos... More

The views and atmosphere are fun and beautiful.... the bill, not so much. To be fair, we went for lunch with the family. Everyone ordered burgers, boneless wings. I believe the burgers were around $15 - 18 which included fries. Burgers were obviously previously frozen patties (dense, perfectly round, dry). My teenage son who ordered boneless wings was served a... More

This place hits my trifecta, great location,food and service! On a recent stay we visited this restaurant and the cocktails and food are simply epic! One can't beat the location and view along with the staff being very family friendly. The prices are what one expects from such a destination but well worth it just for the experience. As an...

Food was ok, service very slow and unorganized. They seem to have lots of servers, but they didn't seem to know what to do. Food pricey for value. Nice on the Lake, but needs some sun protection

This is a favorite in the Iowa Lakes Area. The outside tables and views are great. The food is good but spendy. They have a big bar area. It is a fun party outing.

After some time on the water a group of us stopped here for dinner and drinks. Being a boat access restaurant I expected a bar on the water with simple bar food. Drinks were good, the view was good and the food was good. We started with some Pow Pow Shrimp and Cheese Curds. The Shrimp went over especially well... More

I enjoyed the food very much. The menu was easy and offered me food that I didn't have to alter to suit my taste. (I don't like cheese.) The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. When the wind picked up during a lunch that we were having, they worked very hard to make sure that the guests were taken... More
