We were lucky enough to be able to sit right on the water overlooking the lake and mountains! The pan seared scallops were the best we have ever had. Definitely recommend dinner there!

Location is great. They need to up their game on the food. It really is average and I'll never eat a burger there again. Great place to sit by the lake or watch sports on their TV's and drink, not so much to eat.

Eat here and sit outside by the lake. The food is great and the views are worth the trip! After you eat, you can sit down on the dock and enjoy the peaceful lake.

Food is ok, service was good. Don't like having to walk down the stairs to have lunch. Prefer eating upstairs.

We tried this restaurant on a Friday night. Very good and nice wait staff. We tried their ribs on the recommendation of one of the hotel staff. The ribs were slow smoked for 8 hours and were fall-off-the-bone tender. Very tasty and came with fries....More
