Another great Saturday night for a table of eight. Meeting our freinds half way between our house and theirs we chose to enjoy a well rounded dinner at Vannelli's By The Lake. Some had steak, others seafood and yet others veal. The young twenty somethings enjoyed grilled chicken and burgers. Very quiet on Good Friday. Too chilly to sit outside but it appears to be ready for the weather to turn warmer!

Ask to be seated in Amy's section! We love Amy! She listens, suggests and provides the best service I've ever had. This is a traditional hang out once a month on Saturday nights. Fun food, great fellowship and terrifice food. Bar or dinning room and even patio seating, weather permitting. Great music. Take a walk by the lake after your dinner, it's beautiful.

We celebrated a birthday here with friends. We all loved it. The place was really hopping on a Friday night, but the service nor the food suffered. Check it out for yourself. Good access and ample parking.

We just moved to town and decided to go find a place to eat. We came upon here. It is also a bar so it was a typical Friday night bar crowd. We went into the restaurant and sat there. Very clean and spacious. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and shared with us her favorite menu choices and other restaurants to go to for different types of food. The food was very fresh and you got it, home made!!!!!! Excellent!!

Have eaten there a few times. Always had to send the food back it was over done or underdone when complained to the owner he made me feel like it was my fault. Like I should eat the crappy food and shut up.
