The food is great, as is the view of the Lake, and the service. Their Happy Hour is the best on the Lake, but, lunch or dinner are great choices as well. Try the French Onion Soup and any seafood on the menu. Our server was Kelly. She was informative and very attentive with a wholesome, pleasant personality.
