Amazing food, average service. Had to hunt down our server more than once, and had to chase our bill. Then to get someone to take our credit card proved painfull. If the service matched the food, this would be the best place to eat in the area!

The view and the lakeside patio were the high points of this bar/restaurant, but the food was good too! The server was not very well trained, which was quite obvious, but the atmosphere, location, and vibe of this place really overpowered any annoyance we may have experienced from the server's inexperience!

This is a pub, so the decor is pretty basic as is the menu. We were there on a windy and kind of cold day, so sat inside. The decks have glorious views if the weather is good. The menu is pretty basic--burgers, barbecue, etc. the quality was very good. the staff are very local and very very nice. We... More

The food is just ok. The views are great and is very family friendly. We've been many times and keep going back as it's just great place to have a couple of drinks with great views while the kids run around the dock. The service has always been friendly.

Wow. This place needs some serious help. From them moment I walked in servers seemed overwhelmed. Maybe setting up a host to welcome the guests and help start a wait list rather then allow the guests to battle for tables and poach other people's tables who are still eating. When we finally found a table we sat with dirty dishes... More

We ate at Raven after our kayak ride and was recommended to us by our guide Jolie. They have two decks to eat from if you want a lakeside view when you eat. You can listen to Carribean music while you enjoy your food. They were out of bread for the Ranch Yak meatloaf sandwich we wanted so we opted... More

Unfortunately, I am not in college, but instead on a family trip. The place was very busy...no place to sit, and the outdoor seating area had wall to wall people. I couldn't get the waitress to correct my order, as she was too busy. Food was ok...but the place was not relaxing AT ALL!

Stopped by on a holiday 4th of July weekend. No place to wash your hands since the bathrooms were down and porta potties had no sanitizer. After waiting over an hour with no drink refills and a disappearing wait staff we left. Won't go back for a long time. Yes - love the view but would hope they would get... More

(which is saying a lot considering our view of the lake) we ordered the Pad Thai & Baja Fish Tacos... More

Everyone on here seems to talk about the great view at the Raven. They are right!!! Stayed at the Islander hotel across the road (see separate review) and came in here to get a late supper. I knew it was going to be good just based on the number of locals that were eating at the place. Boats from all... More
