The restaurant was recommended to us for fish. Salad bar was basic. The walleye portion was generous but too breaded for such a delicate fish. Perch was deliious. Staff friendly and service very good.

Great homey atmosphere! Hard working couple make this a wonderful place. Full bar, great soups, salad bar (Friday and Sat.), sandwiches and dinners! History is that it was a former Inn, horse and buggy days, I think. Resort area, locals love it!

This restaurant has a bar, and table seating. The décor is rustic knotty pine. Windows were open everywhere throughout the restaurant. Service was good, despite the fact it was crowded. Coconut shrimp was the best I ever had. Prime rib was tender and very tasty....More

We spent the afternoon at the nearby Lloyd's Landing public access, then had dinner at the OCI before heading home. Parking is ALWAYS an issue during the summer months. You've got to go over the bridge and park in the weeds on the south side....More
