We were there on Memorial Day weekend. Saw a great live band, Classic Fix, and enjoyed the lobster fondue appetizer, along with a couple of sangrias. Our waitress was wonderful and ever present. We finished off the main course, lobster/crab mac & cheese, slowly; it's served on a really hot skillet, and needed some time to cool down so we could eat it. No faux crab or lob here, the real thing. The taste was exquisite. Not cheap, but all quality.

My husband and I stopped here on Saturday to have dinner and see the band. There are a couple of new things on their menu this year; we had jumbo shrimp and mahi-mahi - both were excellent and reasonably priced, although we had the cheaper "baskets" and not the full dinners. The staff was so friendly and the band was excellent. I would highly recommend this as a super-fun place to spend a Friday or Saturday night, or a nice Sunday afternoon, as they have bands all 3 days, and no cover charge! (7 to 11pm on Fri/Sat, and 3-7pm on Sunday). Bands play outside on the deck when its warm enough, or inside in the bar area if its cold or rainy. It does get a bit crowded when the band is inside though, so get there early if that's the case. This is one of our favorite summertime spots to go - we love to sit outside and listen to the band, and the food is never disappointing.

It is one of my favorite places to go in the Summer. Great food and people. Nice enviorment with views of the Lake. I can't wait for them to open back up for the summer.

The food was good, but not exceptional...or outstanding. And it's VERY pricey. Nice night out for two, but the family bill will take you to the bank.

We live nearby and have tried a variety of items and drinks over the past four years. Favorites: Perch sliders, Walk of Shame (ridicuolous bloody mary w/ a burger on sat pm), roasted red potato rather than fries, and nachoes that would feed a 3rd world country. A favorite hang out-That was until the food poisoning kicked in w/in the hour last week on a wednesday night. Management denied it in person and owner wouldn't return my phone call. reported it to the health department ASAP after the perch. Really bummed w/ denial as I didn't even ask for a refund. Go for drinks on the deck and enjoy the view and the music, won't matter if the staff follows food safety regs.
