While the view was good and the band sounded great!! That is allll i can say was good. I had to ask for water 3 times before the manager brought it out, we ordered chips/salsa as an appetizer that didn't come out till after our meal again by the manager.

Great Lake view and that's it. Dirty, understaffed and very average food. Wings were dry. Fries not noteworthy. I probably won't return, not even for view.

It's a lake bar/resto - great place to hang out by the lake - when bugs are in season [ crawfish] they do a great job on'em - beer is cold, servie a tad slow, but staff are noce , burgers good,. Very much a "locals" joint, but worth the stop. Not as pretentious as some of the other lake... More

Unimpressed! We have eaten there three or four times and it's always mediocre. Wait staff. Favors the regulars. The burger was okay, bug not great. Salads are flat and boring.

Have visited several times, generally with friends. The service is really, really bad. We once sat for more than a half hour AFTER drinks were ordered while watching our server bounce around from lap to lap of various male patrons. We finally gave up and left after it was obvious she wasn't going to wait on us. I refuse to... More

My friend and I decided to stop by the Back Porch for lunch. When we entered, we met with the smell of cigarette smoke. We did not realize that smoking was allowed as we did not see a sign to that effect. Nevertheless we headed through the main area and went to the porch and sat down --thinking the smell... More

Great hamburgers at an icehouse type location on the lake. Indoor dining and patio dining are both available. Casual environment with good food.
