The hostess refused to put 2 tables together for our party of 8...Even though we have eaten here before and this request was accommodated previously. Took over a half hour to get our food, although most other diners were finishing up and there were empty...More

We sat right on the water. Food was good. It was the atmosphere that was enjoyable. Watching the boats.

I was here 2 weeks ago and had a great time. The food and service were both top notch. We will be back for sure!

Stopped by here for some drinks this past weekend. The hostess and service staff are somewhat slow. The beer here, at least today was semi-cool. Did not order food, but things smelled and looked good coming out of the kitchen.

Went here by boat., dockage was right in the front on the portage river. Awesome view of the river, and boats. The service was fast, and the food was great! Have to try the seafood lasagna, amazing! We'll be back.

My husband and I enjoyed dinning there. The gentleman that seated us (possibly the owner/manager) apologized in advance that they were busy and short staffed. However, our server promptly took our order and our delicious food arrived in a timely manner. After dinner, we enjoyed...More

I guess our waitress was having a bad day. Rude and not friendly at all. Won't be coming back. Nice location on the waterfront but shame about the waitress. Food over priced too in my opinion.

A very expensive establishment possibly due to the location. Food was fresh (Walleye) and service was reasonable. Salad initially looked good but ultimately was disappointing as only lettuce beneath the top dressing of tomatoe, onion and cucumber. Would I visit again, NO as I have...More
