Friends suggested this location for dinner. They had made a reservation, but when we got there, the reservation could not be found. Seats were available, however. We were given an outdoor table which had a great view of the lake and we were able to watch the people. We had originally asked to be seated inside but I'm not sure... More

Had some cocktails here while visiting, loved the atmosphere & cocktails. Service was great, can't wait to go back! Hopefully next time we get to try more items off the menu instead of just cocktails!

I eat here about twice per month with a colleague. It is our favorite place to meet, esp. on the weekends when they have a brunch menu. The prices are always reasonable, the food can be tailored to your tastes without hesitation, and the atmosphere is friendly and very well suited to view the water jet in the middle of... More

We scheduled this lunch about a month in advance. We had them do a limited menu for a group of what could be 40 people, only 30 ended up showing up. The food was excellent, for my appetizer I had chicken wings and a gyro for my meal. Both were great since they did not have a desert selection they... More

This is a great place for lunch or dinner! The spanakopita was probably the best I've ever had, and my friend and I had incredible service from start to finish!

Grilled octopus and a big salad which they split into two plates was a perfect lunch. Very pleasant to sit outside under the sun sails and look at the water

During nicer times of this year, this can be a great venue. My experience with both the food and service has always been good and the view of the lake (which is one of the reasons I like this place) is so cheerful.

Went there with friends (no reservation). We asked for a high top table outside and got one within 30 seconds. The beer was cold, the food was great, our waiter was great, the only thing missing, was a friendly smiling hostess (for the type of experience that I expected, I would have given them 5 stars, if it wasn't for...

Great value for money. When the weather is nice, sit outside on the patio overlooking Lake Anne. Chicken Souvlaki platter is $10.95 and is served with a side salad and fries. Shrimp entree is 6 shrimp marinated in olive oil, lemon and herbs on a bed of rice, asparagus and a side salad for $14.95. Save big with the buy... More

horrible service - asked for vinegar for my salad and the server returns 1 hour later asking if the vinegar is still needed. No silverware on table. Bronzini was ordered boneless. full of bones (food runner tries to debone and only guaranteed 70 % removal). (this should have been on the house, instead guest pays $10 for rice and green... More
