My wife and I stopped here on our way to Fairfield Bay from Clinton. The food was very good, the desserts were excellent.

For a good meal without a lot of fanfare, this is the place. Our waitress was attentive and the atmosphere casual; a local restaurant that features seasonal produce and home-made desserts. We had the special - pork loin with baked sweet potato and green beans. It was very tasty and a nicely portioned meal that was adequate, but you weren't stuffed. A salad bar came with the meal which was very good with a nice variety of items. I sampled a dessert and was glad I did! A chocoholic's delight!! Prices were moderate, which seemed slightly high, considering the distance to travel and the very casual atmosphere. Most of the diners would normally be seasonal campers, and boaters from the nearby park/marina, as well as those from Fairfield Bay Resort, 5 miles away. All of which would be a somewhat captive audience. The menu variety was fairly limited, but covered the basics - steak, chicken and fish. I would have enjoyed a fresh fish entre', being so close to the lake, but they only offered fried catfish. We happened to visit at the beginning of the season, which was too early for the fresh produce as they advertised. They are also only open Thurs thru Saturday, so you need to plan accordingly. It's not a restaurant I would seek out. We tried it based upon it being an area establishment and their advertised "fresh produce." We were a little disappointed. I would give them an A- . An expanded menu would make a world of difference. Sometimes when on vacation you look for a nicer restaurant with special meals - Stringbeanz is not the place.

What a great find. The desserts are worth the trip. I wish we could have eaten there more, but it's only open Thur. Frid and Sat.

Deserts are must here! Food is good service was good despite a full house. Best of all most of the menu is derived from the owners own truck farm. Best part of this place was to be able to go directly from the lake to a good supper
