Stopped in for lunch. Hostess was unfriendly and unaccommodating. Waitress was downright cold. Browsed the menu and found nothing appealing - unless you are in the mood for greasy bar food. Settled on chips, guac, and a beer - and went elsewhere for a real lunch.

Stopped in for drinks and appetizers while camping near by. The bartender, Sara, was delightful and drinks were good. Nice place to hang out when is raining. Band, drinks and chips and salsa were perfect. Did not eat any other meals here.

Granted it was a holiday weekend but: 1) They refused to allow us out to the deck without explanation. There were people out there and open tables. 2) We chose to sit in the bar area and while they were friendly enough, service was slow and disorganized. 3) Food was mediocre at best.

I've wanted to try this restaurant for a while, since it's the only one on the main street with a view of the lake. The first thing we noticed was the "for sale" sign on the front of the building. We asked for a table on the patio, but instead of putting us at the one with 4 iron chairs,... More

Our food was not good at all. We let the bartender know and they took off 15% (big deal). We would definately not go back here again.

Stopped in for happy hour and while there wasn't much of a crowd we still had a good time hanging with some of the locals. The nachos and queso was awesome and by far the best old beer can collection I've ever seen on display!

Just needed a quick lunch. Chicken fingers, they were good, service was good. Chipmunks begging for food outside. Convenient to the Marina.

The service was slow and the food was no very good. Kind of disappointing. They don't even serve carne asada there. We go to Grand Lake a lot and I would not go back here.

While sitting AT the bar, it took 45 minutes to order a drink and then when she did take the order, she only took 1 (there were 6 of us). Mind you this was at 1:30 on a Wednesday. When we finally did get a table we had to wait again then when we order we were told, sorry, we... More

We had a party of nine… And that was a little bit tricky to seat us all together...we ended up sitting in a booth and a table.... The food was good… One thing to be Wary of.... There is a gratuity added to your check… No matter what the size of your party.... We ended up double thinking on one... More
