Three of us revisited this restaurant and it seems to have gone downhill since we were there before. The conch fritter appetizer was $9.99 for which we got 6 small fritters that were tasty but had no hint of actual conch in them. Way too expensive for what we got. Our daughter ordered the fajitas, a special that day, priced... More

We go here off and on as the view of the lake is beautiful and the food reasonable. We went on all you can eat fish night as my husband likes their fish fry. Food was good, but my catfish was a bit over fried. My sangria had more fruit then beverage but when I requested no fruit on another... More

I called and made a 'reservation' to give them a heads up of the number of people that would be coming and approximately what time. They stated that it would not be a problem especially due to the rain. We arrived 15 minutes later that we told them and they were closed. Not even a note on the door telling... More

The food is okay at best but the staff is great, and the location is perfect (right on Lake Jennie Jewel).

I've driven past this restaurant hundreds of times and I always wanted to try it so today I took my family. The lakeside seating gives you two choices true lakeside on a back patio made of pavers. Then they have a raised patio covered in thick flowered vines for shade they smell amazing. We had calamari for an appetizer it... More

I ordered the mahi tacos and my wife ordered the mofongo grouper. She ended up eating my tacos and I ate the grouper. The mofongo was good and had all the necessities. The mahi tacos were also good but they tended to break up and made it difficult to eat them. Wasn't bad for the money. Hope to go back... More

It is painted in murals all over in and out. It is lakeside. You can sit in the shade and look at a beautiful spring fed lake. There is some traffic noise which is annoy in what is otherwise a great place to relax. The menu is not huge but the choices are varied. We were there at late lunch... More

Still serving average tasting food, it's at least better under its new ownership... better service and food quality. The setting is nice overlooking a small lake. Regular locals like coming here.

This restaurant is a hidden treasure with a delicious menu. We enjoyed the ambience of dining outside in the back overlooking the lake. It was extremely romantic and made us feel like we were in a countryside atmosphere. The food was excellent and well prepared. The price was reasonable for the quality of food we received.

This place is like a hole in the wall. Don't judge a book by its cover on this one. We had time to kill before catching a flight. Not far from the airport we found this small gem of a place. The outside patio was a perfect place to watch some small water craft and people water skiing. The menu... More
