“Location is about all you get here”
Reviewed February 13, 2010

Like I said in the title, the location is great...but this is just a typical bar, serving the same food as any other bar. Go here to drink beer with a bunch of 19-20 somethings at night but don't go here looking for a good meal for a good price. A big problem with it is that its a bar trying to be club...music is way too loud to hear anyone, the "dancefloor" is too small. Everything is dirty or greasy (tables, bathrooms, floors). The consistency has been allover...although most times things are over cooked or burnt or just taste bad. The patio could use a renovation...its falling apart. The whole street this place is on could use updating. The place used to be alright for a roadhouse, but now its just a dump in need or restoration.

“Great Outside Patio and Lake Views”
Reviewed August 8, 2009

Great spot for low key dinning. Casual with great food and friendly service. Inerior is a bit rough and could use a good paint job - but outside patio views are a delight.
