Great food, great staff! This is a semi casual restaurant, this is NOT California (black tie); unless you have at least 50 in your party, or you want to stand out. Like Zsa Zsa Gabor from Hooterville. 🤗

We ate lunch here with some of our family which included younger children. The waitress seemed a little flustered because our grandson has some food allergies, My food was good (walleye) but others found the sandwiches were average.

The food, atmosphere, and service is always consistent and top notch. Many of the area restaurants are very busy on the weekends - this is a great place to avoid all the tourists; although you still may want to call for a reservation. We usually...More
