Party of four... Shrimp basket and grouper fingers were great .Cole slaw and tartar sauce bland and oily. Unfortunately the terrible server brings the rating down to average. She claimed she was new. Did she mean at this place or had she never waited on a table. First she bought skunky beer, we sent it back. She should have compt'd the beer but didn't. Asked for different beer, she had to check to see if available. . After 2 more failed request he went to bar himself to see what WAS available. Food arrived in good time, unfortunately one order was completely wrong, other orders served to wrong people, same with drinks. Didn't bring part of items listed and we had to ask for them. . She was almost threatening when she came back to ask if thing were "finally" okay. The place was not crowded so its not that she was overwhelmed.
This lousy service was unacceptable .. but we still enjoyed our meal because the food was good. By other reviews it seems they have a problem with personnel and with providing food on menu. Yes we would go back and hope for better service.

A great summer evening - We were with another couple and loved that we could bike to the restaurant. Any time we can combine guilt-reducing exercise with beer, we're happy! We read bad things about the service, but our service was great! Waitress showed up fast, knew about the food and beer to guide us. No issues. The guitarist was not too loud, often a problem for us post-college age guests! We'll definitely go back when we want a summer rooftop evening.

Went here with my wife recently on the recommendation of friends. We went on a Sunday afternoon in between lunch and dinner time. The place was not very busy at all, however, it took about 20 minutes to get out food out to us after we ordered. We ordered a burger and a wrap, so it shouldn't have taken long to make. The food was good and the ambiance of the place was what you would expect from a lakeside bar and grill. I would have rated the place higher if it wasn't such a long wait to get our food when they weren't busy. I can only imagine longer waits at peak times.

Meet friends here for diner. They have a nice selection of fish, normally four or more different kinds. Service was good and all eight of us enjoyed our meals. They also have a rooftop diningroom. Complete with bar and music. You can see Lake Lansing from the rooftop. One of our favorite fish restaurants. A block east of Marsh Road across from Lake Lansing Park.

Perch basket with fries was tasty according to my husband. The Salmon had an unexpected flavor kick with its spicy mango sauce.yum. The Viking Voo Doo drink was a cravable dessert rum drink that was reminiscent of a orange creamcicle. My husband drank half of mine, so just go ahead and order 2 :)
