“Good homecooked meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

Just like home with hearty portions. You won't leave hungry. Try to leave room for a shared dessert like 8-layer chocolate cake!

I have been to the place many times over the years and the food is just average. If they didn't have cocktail service in a dry county they would be out of business. The owners are some of most rude inconsiderate people I have ever met. I would rather eat a dirt sandwich than dine here.

“Great Food, Great Desserts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

we have been to Janssen's Lake Front Restaurant a bunch of times as we go to the lake every other weekend during the summer months. The food is always good and i have not had anything there that was bad. the waitresses are always very sweet and happy to be there. The salad bar is included with most meals and is very nice, not too big but very good dressings that I assume are homemade. The desserts are very good and all homemade, make sure that you get there early enough to get the Carrot cake before it is all gone, you can even tell the waitress when you get there to reserve you a piece and they will!! the other desserts are good to chocolate cake, and various cheese cakes. If you go there during the summer make sure to get there early if you don't want to wait, the place is not that big and it fills up very fast. If you care to they also have a boat slip that you can use if you decide to come right from the water!

“Best kept secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

in the state of Arkansas.. The steaks are as good as you will get anywhere. The green beans are very good. The homemade mashed potatoes are exceptional. Worth the drive--and the view of the dock and part of Greer's Ferry Lake is so nice that people don't mind at all either waiting till they are seated or eating outdoors.

“Go to the Sunday brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012

There's an all you can eat Sunday Brunch and it's worth the drive. The location is gorgeous and the food...I'll be dreaming about the food until my next visit. I can't wait to go again.
