As a restaurant literally floating on the lake, I expected there to be fresh fish, caught that morning by local fisherman. No, just shrimp (obviously not from the area) and the same fried catfish you can get from any BBQ joint. Not to sound full...More

Crowded on a Friday night but not waiting for a table crowded. Interesting location on the water where you can feed the fish and water fowl. Good dishes with attentive service. Lots of TV's.

We enjoyed a relaxing meal here after a full day of touring in Lynchburg, TN. Kate was truly delightful! She offered suggestions for our dinner meal. Afterward, we wished we'd ordered what she suggested. The hamburger steak and gumbo was only average. She had suggested...More
