When I heard this was the original I was curious. It had a great setting by a lake. The food was good, service was good, everything was very nice.

Made a trip there last summer on the bike with some friends. The food was awesome and the atmosphere was wonderful. I was really saddened to hear that it burnt to the ground as I was looking forward to a trip there again this summer....More

Ate here with special friends in July 2014. We were a large group and shared a few trash can lids. The food was as wonderful as the first time. We sat outside and the weather and the view of the lake that evening was spectacular....More
