We stopped for a beer on our way to Eldora Speedway for the world of outlaws race. The view of the lake from the upper deck was great. The pretzels with cheese dip went along with our beers. They had a solo guitar player...playing some...More

Great location overlooking the lake! Friendly staff, food is okay, parking available on both sides of restaurant. Boat dock available. Good place to hang out, relax, and grab a bite and/or drink.

The signs now just say "Dockside" and "Saloon", no more "Big Bamboo's. " But it's the same delightful, weathered, open to the breeze, waterfront dive; a taste of the islands amid the corn and soy fields of western Ohio. On a slow, sleepy, hot and...More
