It was medium average in it's day, but it is closed and scheduled for demolition. The biggest down side is another lake side dining opportunity in the Madison area is gone.

Restaurant now sold and new owners have not yet decided what to do with property. Below rating are on current status. Food was very good when it existed and would have rated excellent.

While this had been an average place, it has been sliding downhill the last year or two. We had been getting mildly ill after eating lunch or supper there and the ingredients in the food were getting cheaper. We stopped by and it was closed, they are going to tear it down and build condos. The chairs and tables were... More

If you love fish for breakfast this is the place for you. We have always gone Sunday mornings not earlier than 10am. We like to sit at the bar which has attentive bar tenders. You have to ask to upgrade your bloody which is very good.I can't remember the name but I ask for the special bloody, which isn't the... More

First thought was when we walked in the hostess was sitting at the bar taking up 2 stools rolling silverware, that is potential income you are NEVER going to get. Roll silverware some where else. She got up to seat us only after the bartender asked if we were dining. It gets worse, the server was horrible, checked on us... More

Met some old friends on a Thursday night for cocktails and dinner. Drinks were good, barstaff were helpful and friendly. Our server was exceptionally helpful with menu suggestions and the food was impressive; I'm not sure if I was expecting it to be disappointing, but - it was really good and the prices were affordable as well.. Traditional fried cod... More

I would not recommend this restaurant. The location is nice but the food is terrible and the service isn't much better. Prices too high for what they serve.

Great food and service. Sundays, always ordered the walleye and eggs. Never had a bad meal there whether it was breakfast, lunch or dinner. Great view of lake and sunsets. Can be noisy and crowded at times but order a drink and sit on the patio. You can also eat on the patio if weather permits.

We went here the other night with another couple. The restaurant itself is rather dated. The view of the lake outside is nice. However, when we were there the water smell was not great. The menu was varied enough that we were all able to find a choice that satisfied us. I had the shrimp dinner. It was ok. The... More

This restaurant is on the water which is always a plus with outdoor seating. Service was excellent, but they were out of two entrees and had to send one of our entrees back to be rewarmed, as the vegetables and rice were barely warm. We also had salmon and prime rib, which was good. We would give them another chance.
