Ate here with a group of six for lunch. One of the meals we ordered never arrived and our waitress disappeared. After 30 minutes she reappeared and acted like somehow it was our fault that she forgot to put in the order. She was like,...More

We have been here several different times. It never disappoints. If you don’t want to sit outside there is still inside seating with views of the lake. It’s a fun place to go on UT game day! Fun place for drinks!

I just like restaurants on the water. I never expect much. The food here was good and the view was even better.

Lakeside dining is nice. We enjoyed it especially because we are from Florida. Sun and water are always a good venue in our opinion. The food was good but not great. The service was average. The kids enjoyed watching turtles and fish before and after...More
