Pretty location by the water, sipped our wine and admired the swans and the sailboats on the bay. Friendly, attentive server. Lovely summer evening on the patio filled with diners of all ages. Generous servings, mediocre food. Would definitely return for the ambiance!

Stopped by to have a cold one, late afternoon, while in Brighton. Very friendly, local place. Had an appetizer with our beer, which was good. The food we saw being served looked good. Didn't hear a complaint. They have been here for a long time for a good reason. Enjoy.

We arrived for lunch with a group of 4 adults and were promptly seated. The location was beautiful overlooking Presqu'ile Bay. The menu looked fantastic and diverse. We were in the mood for seafood and there was lots to choose from. We couldn't decide on one dish, so we ordered 4 items and split them amongst the group. The calamari... More

We went for a light lunch and enjoyed good service, average food and a beautiful lakefront view. This is an enjoyable spot for a lunch.

We arrived around 1pm, 4 adults, and the patio was quite full but there were plenty of tables inside (not an issue). We were seated right away and our waitress came to say hello and take drink orders within 5 mins or so. She promptly returned with our beverages and took our lunch orders. She then didn't return for an... More

We went with a group of 6. The service was average but i felt like the waitress forgot about us from time to time. She was nice enough. The kids food came out well before the entrees which was goid but it was a bit to early. The food was pretty good over all.

Wish the TA rating system did not leap from average to very good as this hostelry was above average but below very good. Would have given it a good. Six of us went for early evening meal and we were a bit surprised that the lady (presumably boss or owner) would not put two tables together inside to accommodate our... More

We went there on a Tuesday night with our 5 and 7 yo children. The only positive point was the patio (very nice setting by the lake, very nice view). We waited 15 minutes before someone came to see us (we had to ask). The kids' meals arrived 30 minutes before our food (again, we had to ask someone), so... More

We arrived around 6:30 p.m. on a Friday evening, and were lucky to get a table on the patio overlooking the bay. It was PERFECT! The service was excellent. The chicken caesar salad was exactly the right size and delicious. Nice wine selection. This is a great spot for casual, relaxed dining.
