After a 9 hour drive I needed a beer so I was ecstatic to find this dockside bar and restaurant. I enjoyed the view while enjoying a lager, chips & salsa/guacamole and a Mediterranean salad. All were great!

Very few restaurants can truly say they are right on the water but this one is. Excellent open view of the lake. In facts folks frequently dock their boats and have lunch. Nice sized portions. I had the lobster roll, which was fresh and seasoned...More

Probably better for the views then the food but it's still a place worth visiting. The views were 5 star but the food was probably just average. The service was friendly if a little slow, we ordered chips and salsa with a couple of beers...More

Lunch on the water. Beautiful setting. Below average food. Terrible faux friendly service. Painfully long wait to find our order never went in. A woman at the table next to us was drenched by the waiter, who froze & watched. Poor quality meal. Unfriendly hostess....More

This is an amazing spot to have dinner regardless of what you get. Beautiful view of Lake Champlain. Unfortunately not all tables are well shaded in the early evening. The lobster rolls are outstanding and worth paying the price.

You can arrive at this restaurant by boat. It's very busy and the location is pretty impressive. The people working there are nice, they work hard to keep up with the workload. That all being sad: the food is not really good. It's a place...More

We were told it was a must for drinks and the sunset, and it was true. Very nice people, great views and delicious, well-priced drinks. Definitely recommend it - also note they have areas for eating and others drinking/sunset watching.
