Friendly staff. Somewhat pricey menu so I ordered a black bean burger as the least expensive item which was really tasty and moist which was a pleasant surprise and served with super crunchy homemade chips. Did not go in the restaurant proper so cannot comment on that. I would go back next time we are in the area and recommend trying it!

In a lovely setting adjoining the lake, guests may choose to dine indoors or outdoors. We opted for indoor dining, as the evening was quite warm. Service was prompt, pleasant and helpful. Their martini was fine; the extra olives were most welcome. A cup of seafood chowder was very tasty, as was the small Caesar salad. The fried lake perch was superb-- perfectly done, as were the fried potatoes. No grease whatsoever, and truly delicious. My host spoke of the calamari salad with superlatives. A wonderful evening!

This place was recommended by hotel staff. Nice venue with a water view. Somewhat overpriced, but decent food and service. Popular place for tourists with families. Had the fried perch, which was not bad.

We enjoyed a lovely summer evening on the water with great service, good food and remarkable music performed by the talented Rachel Curtis. She is a versatile, charming singer who incorporates multiple instruments while her voice soars through the summer sky.

I thought the prices were a bit high but the restaurant has live music and dining on the water..white fish for $32 and pizza for $16 are overpriced but the food presentation and taste I would rate as high. My son enjoyed the Korean beef sandwich. Not a great place for a family if you want a reasonably priced meal. service was average but friendly..
