We often come here because of the location but the service has gotten worse and worse each time. We were here on Thursday 7/7/16 for a ladies lunch and the service was at it's worst. We had to ask to be seated at the hostess stand because the host was too busy talking to another employee. Then, we waited for... More

We on an extremely rainy night. We were on the covered patio and no one got wet. Fun on the edge of the water. I had the brisket platter. So tasty and the baked beans were great. I also loved the crispy coleslaw. Definitely a place to go when you are at the lake.

Favorite location is right on TN river with view of marina! Always return for salad with cheesy dressing, hot hot wings, steak with worchershire butter, and tangy key lime pie. Exceptional service and ample portions, but a few dishes are a bit salty. Great bartenders and swift service, standard wine list

Time and time again we return to this restaurant because of the wonderful location. However, time and time again, we have poor service. I am always hoping this will be the time all goes well. Well, it wasn't this time. We arrived during brunch. It took several minutes to be greeted by our server, then several more minutes until she... More
