Nothing special here except the location and view. My kids enjoyed giving their dinners to the ducks. More of a bar than a family restaurant. Food was okay. Mango smoothie was great.

Terrific service and cocktails. Just ate nachos and enjoyed the fog rolling in from Lake Taneycomo. Open mic night drew a nice crowd. Looking forward to going back next month.

We go every Tuesday now since we moved to town. We go to the farmers market first, then go get Tacos. I gets busy after 5pm. Tacos are just 1.00. So come hungry. Get happy hour deals. The staff is great. We love this place..

Had 5 people for dinner on the deck. The Fish and chips were great. The Bloody Mary was a treat, with celery, a pickle, a carrot, and a slice of BACON,!! The house Cabernet was very good too.
