Visited this restaurant for the first and last time. Food was good, but service was absolutely horrible. The establishment was not busy at all when we stopped by for lunch. We seated ourselves at a table we considered the least dirty. When our server finally stopped by she immediately asked for our orders ignoring the dirty tabletop until we asked to have it cleaned. They have glass tabletops and you couldn't even see through it to the floor. One of our party ordered a frozen drink and when it was delivered it wasn't frozen at all. When we brought it to our servers attention she said the bartender wasn't that great (nice thing to say about a co-worker) and that it would probably be better if our guest when it and spoke personally with the bartender. She did and it turned into an argument with our guest showing the bartender that she just needed to add more ice to the blender to get the frozen consistency. The place has a great seating area around a pool that looked appealing, but we hesitate to go back and see if our experience was a one time thing because we don't want to waste our money a second time and embarrass ourselves in front of friends again.

The pool was great and the nachos were amazing. Great service! A wonderful place to stop off when you're out jet skiing!

Living here at the lake we go to many places during the summer months by boat, so we don't go to any one place all the time but we do come here a few times and mostly during the week. The service has always been good and not a long wait as I saw on the other review. It is not a large place at all but they do have both indoor and outdoor seating. They have a pool outside to sit around and sit up on a hill so you have a nice view of the lake and marina. This is located at Village Marina at the 3MM. The bar is very nice and the place is very nice and clean. The owners or marina staff is often there and will greet you.
There are many places to go on the lake but this is the only one where you can get covered boat parking and be in calm water. They also have fuel right on the dock should you need any and a little store. The prices are a little high but food quality is high.

We have eaten at this place several times. We own our own place at the lake and we go here strictly because we are usually in a boat with someone who chooses to go there. It would definitely not be the choice of myself or my husband. We usually eat on the outside patio and there are many issues to mention. First the food is priced high for the way it is presented. Usually the outdoor tables are never clean when we sit down. The quarters are very tight and it is hard to get into your seat next to the patio railing at times and the covered seats are sort of dirty. The service is very slow in coming to your table and once they do finally take your order prepare for a LONG wait. The food itself is not bad but overpriced. I would not recommend this place to someone who wants to go somewhere by boat. I would recommend so many other lakefront restaurants first that are reachable by boat.
