True confession - we only ate cheesecake at the outdoor bar so we cannot rate the food. (Decadent cheesecake however!) Bar service was prompt and friendly. The adjacent white sand beach, palm trees and boat dock make you feel more like you're in Florida --...More

We went to the restaurant during the annual balloon fest. The view was fantastic. It was festive and the happy hour was great. Everyone liked their food. The calamari was exceptional.

Visited on recommendation of friends. Really disappointed. One order missed. No apology. Fish very greasy. Stale bun on sandwich. Chowder very good.

Beautiful view of Lake Havasu but one small chicken breast over Chicken Piccata for $23 is a bit steep. Ballgame on the TV screens was so loud we couldn't even have a conversation.

The food at this restaurant is Ok. The best part of the experience is the great view of the lake. They have a really fun outdoor bar that looks like Jimmy Buffet could walk in any minute.

You would have to ask the Manager to know for sure. You might be able to take your dog into the outdoor bar area.
