“Gave it another attempt, but...”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

We first attended a function with drinks and small plates. The drinks were very good, but the food was off. The temperature was wrong. What should be hot, was warm, etc. So, we gave it another try. We were the only ones in the dining room and now I know why. The service was good. The waitress was doing her very best, but the food tastes like it comes out of a can. I'm sorry, but it just isn't good. The salad was yellowy, brown lettuce with tired toppings and bottled dressing. The sandwich came with tomato, even after I said that I was highly allergic and tomatoes could not be on my plate, or touch my food. This is a prime boardwalk location and it should be waiting list only, but the lack of a line should be your first clue.

“Surprisingly good food in a plain dining space”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

Loved the menu with the huge range of cajun and creole dishes. The dining space was less than pretty, with buckets placed around the room catching water from a badly leaking roof. Almost did not go in because it looked so bad, but very glad we gave it a shot. We had the smoked salmon with cream cheese and herbs, crab cakes and a caesar salad. Lots of food and delicious.

“Band not able to distract from substandard food and service.”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Steak overcooked (beyond well done). Staff friendly but lacked knowledge of menu and side dishes (served completely different sides than we were told). Drinks served in paper cups and silverware was "grab your own" out of dirty cup on table. Have a beer and enjoy the band but plan on eating somewhere else.

“Long Wait to be Seated”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

My husband and I were visiting Grand Lake for the first time. After a long drive we decided to try and grab a late lunch at EG's however, we waited for over 5 minutes at the please wait to be seated sign on the patio not even acknowledged by anyone. We decided to leave after customers leaving told us not to eat there because the food was bad and that we should trust the reviews. Thank you to the customers who told us to leave while we could as I now read through some of the reviews.

“Need to finish their renovations”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Good, interesting food. Great blues music played on the patio. The inside of the restaurant is still in renovation mode, but we ate outside on the patio and it was fine.
