My extended family of 4 had lunch there. The food was excellent (3 of us had salads) and portions were more than needed. A sweet potatoes side was enough for all. The service was good, it was early in Covid reopening, so things like having...ask for pepper (packages came, not a shaker on table) was a bit strange but the staff handled it well; especially considering it had gotten quite busy. Also having to walk the entire way around the building to use the rest rooms was odd but it is the world we live in. The location is wonderful. There was a bit of changing weather and wind on the lake and it was fun to watch.More

My family has been here twice and we've loved it both times! I highly suggest the calamari. Great views, great music, great staff, and they're being careful during COVID-19. My sister is vegetarian and my mom is gluten free and they both found things to...eat that they enjoyed.More

If you want a great place to watch the sunset this is your spot. The food was decent (I got the fish tacos) but there are certainly better spots in Burlington. The couch seating was relaxing and our server was very good.

Great staff, great food, and great atmosphere. Vermont has reopened for dining in, but it was extremely tough to find a place that offered that. It was in the mid 90s and AC was much needed. My daughter, sister and I decided to walk along...the water and one of us noticed spot on the dock. Upon a google search we noticed that you must reserve a table online to secure your seat. There was only one slot available so we took that. We chose a seat under the deck, which had a great view of Lake Champlain and a nice breeze. As an appetizer we got the Queso Nachos which was very good. The meals were the Beyond Burger, the Cloudbreak Salad, and Livin the Dream salad with Chicken. Everything was terrific and I would highly recommend again.More

The Half Moon Chicken Salad was really good. The Black Bean Burger was tasty. I can’t believe that they came with potato chips instead of fries. Tacky. I wanted to have the fish tacos but am not a fan of Tilapia. Again a tacky menu...item. The service and the overall experience was good.More

We visited this restaurant twice last summer and enjoyed it both times. The food is pretty good. It's a pretty crowded restaurant due to its location. You can't beat the view! It sits right on the dock on Lake Champlain in Burlington. There is a...bit of a wait when the weather is nice and they don't open if the weather isn't great.More

I had a great meal. Beet and goat cheese salad with citrus dressing and sweet potato fries. Salad was delicious. Fries were nice and crispy but not at all greasy. My friends had the turkey burger special and both thought it was disgusting. They left...the burgers on their plates after a couple of bites. While the restaurant was not at all busy the service left a lot to be desired. I hit my salad but the server didn't “know what happened” to my fries. About 15 minutes later she brought them to me. This restaurant is right on Lake Champlain but so is Splash. I would definitely choose Splash over this place.More

Had lunch here one day after a great bike ride. Sat outside under the canopy (have sunny or shady spots) and a good meal; simple - nothing too elaborate, but it was tasty. Nice way to kill the afternoon, lakeside....

Best place for a summer night sunset dinner. Hurry before it closes for the season. Once it's October, it's all over. Try the fish tacos- they let you choose grilled or fried. The lobster rolls are also huge.

Loved the location, especially sitting overlooking the Lake for dinner and a few drinks. Food was fresh and good. Excellent value and the staff were nice. Toilet area left a lot to be desired I’m afraid. Great place to relax after our 20 mile cycle.
