“Nice service, nice breakfast buffet, nice view were all provided at a fair price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2011

We will visit again. I choose fruit for breakfast while my husband would rather have eggs, sausage, biscuits & gravy. We both got our desires fulfilled. Fresh fruit looked great-taste even better. He said the full line of country breakfast fixings were top notch.
The service way fast and friendly.
All a nice touch.

“Stay FAR away”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2011

On a June trip to Lake Ozarks we were looking for a lunch restaurnat with a view of the lake. It had been raining so after choosing Portside we decided to sit on the outdoor deck. upon entering the restaurant there were 2 adults dining inside and no one outside. We also saw no one wroking. We waited a few minutes until someone appeared from the kitchen. We requested outside and while we were bing seated my huband asked "So what are you famous for"? The waiter feebly states "the view"?? There were 4 of us , 2 ordered water and the other 2 ordered sweet tea after the waiter stated they carried sweet tea. The tea arrived....not sweet...once the waiter came back for our order my husband requested sugar. Still no other diners. After 40 minutes I went inside to find the waiter and our order. The 2 diners were now trying to leave but also could not find the waiter. He soon comes from the kitchen with our order. There was a chicken sandwich and burger...both ok..The french fries were 100% cold. The bruschetta and spinach salad that were ordered werecompletely wrong and we told the waiter immediately. SHe asked "what did you order". The spinach and shrimp salad came out as a ham, salami chef salad and the bruschetta was pepperoni on french bread slices...This order was for a vegetarian!! The waiter did not know what to do. He took the incorrect order back to the kitchen and NEVER came back. We waited another 30 minutes then left the restaurant. While leaving there were 3 new customers sitting inside and waitingto order. They asked if the service was slow and we told them to leave right away. This place should be closed. Terrible staff!!! They clearly do not want customers!

Have enjoyed the breakfast buffet several weekends as boat owner on adjacent Marine Max Port Arrowhead Marina. Thoroughly enjoy Tracy as our server. Will definitely return for future dining needs.
