Great service and great food. The salad, beef fillet and ribs were all A#1. This was our third time there in the last year and it is always great. Staff and owners are also very pleasant.

It's a small place, almost like a small house turned into a restaurant. The negative...the bathroom is right there... all diners will see where you are going. Good view of the lake from the small bar, outside seating if you wish. Ambiance set aside, this...More
