The restaurant has an open feeling with screened windows so you can hear the waves from the lake. The music is wonderful, calm but fun. The menu has something for everyone, including this vegan. I really liked the tofu dishes and the hummus. Highly recommended.

The restaurant had some delicious options including lots of fresh fish which my husband loved. I ordered hummus, which they had just run out of, so they made more fresh. Nice seating inside and out.
