We had heard so much about this place and were excited to eat there. But we weren't impressed at all. I got a chicken salad and it wasn't great, the chicken was funny tasting. They seem to pride themselves in being slow just for the...More

The beer, sandwich, and interaction with the staff and customers was great. I would recommend the restaurant for a meal and/or beer.

Our planned destination was the Lakeshore House during a blizzard. When we arrived they were closed (due to the storm). We knocked on the door and they opened up just for us. Bella and Allie welcomed us in from the cold, offered extremely friendly service...More

My gf and I came here when we thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail. She had a gyro which she liked a lot and I had a lobster roll that was okay, but probably not among the top half of lobster rolls I've had.
