“Bump it up!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

We were lucky to be there when "Bump" (formally of Gear Daddies) & local musicians were playing...felt guilty for not having bought a ticket to watch. Great music, good service, and stiff drinks :-)

“typical up north place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

Friendly bartenders, but did not like having to watch a couple's wedding video in a public bar (it wasn't closed for a private function). Would have preferred to continue watching football.

“Great Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

We sat outside and the view was beautiful. It took awhile to get a waitress out to wait on us. And the food took awhile. Just OK food.

“Not the best value.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

Considering the price, the food was a bit under par. There are definitely better choices close by. Service seemed disorganized.
Food was cold by the time it was served.

“Ugg Terrible service but good food.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

Although the food is really good, the service is TERRIBLE! The server even told me there were no managers on staff... Such a great location, captive audience with guests from the lodge hotels, yet they can't keep staff. I am sure they are loosing money, because the math on the bill was wrong. My bill's total was $.12 short, and the server could not account for it... I certainly don't mind paying less, but where did the $.12 go??? No, it was not buried in tax or beverage tax, just gone.
