Have dined here several times and always pleased with the food and service. The menu has a selection to please everyone. Wait staff are pleasant and attentive. Be sure to save room for dessert. I particularly like the Lemon Cream Cake.

We enjoyed a pleasant dinner at the bar. We've been there twice and find it to be a wonderful family-owned and operated restaurant. Their wine by the glass is a perfect offering after a day on the lake. I enjoyed a side order of meatballs and spinach, perfect portion side. My husband enjoyed his shrimp scampi with angel hair pasta.... More

We've eaten here three times for dinner, brought our family here when they came to visit. Food-service are always good, and the bar area has a nice atmosphere. We've also heard they have music on certain nights but we haven't tried that yet

We live in this great town, travel a lot. We had just returned from the Bahamas for a birthday trip for my husband, didn't want to cook so went to one of our favorite restaurants.
