We came for dinner on a Saturday night. It was a quick drive from where we were staying (Chase on the Lake) and great for a nice "date night." It doesn't look like much from the outside but they do a nice job with both...More

Decent food. Good waitresses. The place was very clean. I would recommend reservations. Drinks seem to bit high priced even for a basic domestic beer. Dinner plates 17-35$ most around 24-29$

Wow I did not expect the varied menu and quality, not to forget great service, at The Boulders. There is outdoor seating and indoors with large windows on three sides. The martinis were perfectly executed. Our group had walleye, grouper, cassoulet, and ahi tuna. All...More

Restaurants quality ebb and flow but The Boulders has maintained its quality. Prices would be considered very expensive by Walker standards but a great value compared to Metro areas. For a few dollars more than other dinner restaurants you will get some good quality food,...More
