It is a nice atmosphere on the patio sitting right next to the water in the summer weather. If you are in a hurry, forget about it though. We waited an extremely long time to get our food and there were also people who arrived...after us that received their food before us so it made the long wait even more unsatisfying.More

We cruised up to Coody Brown’s outdoor deck in our boat. My wife and I and another couple found seating quickly and settled in. Our table was not wiped down but our server cleaned it shortly after we sat down. We enjoyed some drinks while...waiting for our food. We enjoyed our dinners and the portion sizes were a tad bit small. We had our server changed in the middle of our visit. I plan on returning.More

Good food! And a good variety! Kids LOVE to sit outside on the balcony over the channel so they can feed the fish and turtles.

Very nice pub/restaurant. We all had great meals and service. Bluegill was as good as I’ve ever had others had wings burgers etc.. None were disappointed. Great service and accommodation too for an impromptu group of 12 friends! Several children were feeding fish and turtles...from the dining patio. Very cool!More

I love to sit on the deck overlooking the lake when it is warmer. You can even feed the fish. The food is really good, too! It’s a small town restaurant (with bar and a family room) and fish entree I crave! Salad bar isn’t...bad and service was fantastic. Inside isn’t fancy but it’s very clean and cozy. If you are craving a good fish dinner, I really recommend this!More
