We visited this restaurant with friends and loved everything about it. The building, service and food were all great. We went for lunch and had only appetizers that were all very good. We'll for sure go back when we return to the Leland area.

This place has been around for longer than the 43 years that I've been eating here, every summer staying @ my family's cottage and coming here for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner. sometimes for a snack or just dessert. Many dishes to choose from.

I can and do cook better tasting perch and bluegill at a fraction of these prices. Don't waste your time.

We stopped in for a casual dinner in the pub area. You could also order food off the resturant menu as well as the pub.we tried and shared a pizza. We notice a large number of people carrying out boxes of pizza so we thought we would try one. Very tasty,lots of toppings to pick from
