We visited this restaurant twice during the last year and our dining experiences were dramatically different.
The first visit was in summer and we ate at a table outdoors overlooking the lake. We had a 3 year old with us and were pleased to see that there was a fence between the restaurant and the lake so she could enjoy watching the ducks without joining them in the water. Fried clams were crispy and hot, very tasty, and plentiful. Service was attentive, we were not rushed, and had a lovely luncheon..
The other visit was in November and we ate in the banquet room, which is very large. Acoustics are poor and it was difficult to carry on a conversation in the crowded room. Our server was good. Once again we ordered fried clams but they were not nearly as good as the food that we enjoyed in the summer. In November the clams were soggy and cold. We sent them back and the kitchen re-heated them so they were warmer but they were still soggy Other diners at our table enjoyed the chicken dishes. We should have known better than to order clams out of season.
We would return in the summer for outdoor dining. We would not go back in the winter months.

The food is amazing! Great service, recently remodeled, the owners are always present. This place is huge. The bar is one of then biggest I've seen locally. The outdoor patio area is always clean and packed full of people when the weather is warm. The banquet room has glass on all sides and is big and bright. I'm mostly there for business lunches when it's quiet and then at the bar to watch football. I've never had a bad experience.

I have recently gone with 3 different sets of friends on separate evenings, and we have all had a nice dinner. The service has been very good, the restaurant is nice and clean, and it overlooks the lake. I think there will be outdoor dining next year.
