“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

We were recommended this place by a bartender at our resort so we decided to check it out. He told us it's kind of hidden off the main road and he wasn't kidding! My boyfriend said "where are you taking me?" as we drove in on a small windy road, but when we got there it was well worth the adventure! It's typical bar food at a really cool location. Our waitress was super friendly and happy to give us suggestions on things to do on our vacation.

“Amazing view, overpriced food, and bad music”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

We visited Paradise upon the recommendation of a friend. It is located on a beautiful bend in the lake with great views in both directions. There is plenty of outdoor seating. There are lots of steps to get down to the restaurant, so if you have trouble with steps, you should avoid it. Unfortunately, the food is way overpriced for the quality that you get, so you pay for the view. We went on a weeknight, when they were holding "Star Search" night with open mic. We were enjoying the view until the music started, and then it was just irritating. Maybe it's a good place to go if you're younger and like to party and drink. Not really good for families, even though there is a kids' menu.

“Great food, fabulous atmosphere”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

We visited this restaurant with our three kids and another family of four on a Saturday evening. The drinks were cold, the food was very good and there was a live band playing. We ordered everything from Shrimp fettuccine to nachos to the "mcdizzle sizzle"....the entrees were large portions and delicious. The service was pretty slow, however, they were really busy. Overall, it was a great evening. We will definitely return!!

“Great Casual Atmosphere, Plus On The Lake”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Recommended by our hotel as a good casual restaurant with reasonable prices. Beautiful lake view as restaurant is right on the lake, good very casual atmosphere. Our server Anna Marie was very friendly and gave us excellent service. We both had the crab cake entree which was very good. Do not expect Maryland style. Get good directions or have a GPS if by car. IF U R in a boat they have good docking facilities. Live music on some evenings.
