Blackboard specials are always easy on the wallet. The coffee hot and good, the servers always looking for half empty cups to refill. Breakfast and lunch at it's best.

Staff was rude, drinks are pricy, food is okay (nothing special for the price). Really thought this place was going to be great but not so much.

One Person in our party substituted tomatoes for their home fries, they charged an extra $1.00. Not exorbitantly high, but an extra charge just the same. The scrapple was... More

Set back pretty far off the road, you could drive right by...Don"t let that happen. This waterside restaurant is a "Gem". It is clean and bright, with a friendly staff, and really good food.
