We had lunch at Harbor Lights. Choice of either buffet or menu. We had each and neither was disappointing. Great food at a great price with a wonderful view of the dam area and lake.

Not a big fan of buffets, but this one was great. Lots of fresh fruit and the cooked food had not yet acquired a vintage.

I loved the breakfast buffet. The cheesy eggs were very good, as was everything else. This is a very nice restaurant with a really great view of the water. We usually have Thanksgiving here as that buffet is awesome. Nice place and worth the price.

Had a dozen golfers stay at the resort, probably about the 8th year there. They have stepped up the quality of the food, especially on the buffets, both breakfast and Fri. night fish. Would like to see the Tees and Zees program return.
