We arrived early for dinner in between the skiing and boating seasons and still couldn't get into the Dining room. Call for a reservation! Full menu was available in the Tavern and the other patrons were friendly and offered suggestions. Food was great.

The food is consistently great, served in a friendly atmosphere by excellent wait staff. We have been eating here for years and have never had a disappointing meal. And, if you like Lemon Drop Martinis you have to try one at the Lyon's Den

Went after skiing for lunch on New Years Eve and enjoyed the incredible potato soup, delicately fried calamari, and perfectly seasoned crab cakes. As a resident of Maryland I never get crab cakes outside of my state but these were delicious. Also loved the hot...More
