Great food, and the best service around. This is a historic landmark in Clear Lake, and they have done their best to keep it preserved and working. It is an asset to the community. We went to one outdoor concert toward the end of the...More

This is a fun place for families to enjoy everything in one stop...good food, drinks, water, sunset. It isn't fancy, but is fun.

The onion rings are my favorite. My wife loves the tenderloin. You can drive a car or drive your boat over and dock

Thank you for the review, we make both our tenderloin and onion rings from scratch each and every day. Also, thank you for mentioning our dock, visitors to the lake will appreciate the local info.

This is a festive venue on a marina. Food was bar food at best and nothing seemed homemade. Wait staff was friendly and accommodating, but the place seemed under staffed as refills were slow to come. We got cheese curds, nachos, a burger and chicken...More

We didn't use the Tiki Bar, but we don't remember seeing one. I did some research and as of a couple of years ago, they didn't have one. You might try calling them. The number I have isn't the right one. Sorry!

We are open from mid-May until Labor Day. We serve lunch and dinner in an unique setting, under big, beautiful mature oak trees, next to the lake with grass as the flooring. You will be waited on by one of our friendly servers at one of the many picnic tables. Our restaurant does not have walls but we do have indoor seating for those who choose to be inside. PM Park was built in 1914 and has served breakfast every season since then, with a full menu you will find something everyone will like. We do have a quite a few items that are gluten free and will accommodate any special needs if possible. Children love this place, they have a beach, a pirate ship. a frisbee for a plate and all the space they need to run and play.
