No doubt this restaurant has great views on the lake, but after that it's all downhill. Food quality is average to poor. Service is ok. We have eaten there on two separate occasions this summer only to be disappointed twice. It's really not that hard to make great burgers and fries, just ask five guys.

Dined there with a party of 8 and were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good and the service was as well. Apparently, they have different sections to their restaurant which include fine dining (tablecloths) and informal dining downstairs as well as informal outside on the lake. The outdoor menu was very reasonable and we loved eating outside overlooking the lake.

We had lunch at the outdoor patio called the Bayfront Bar & Grill, same location same Kitchen, different name, the seating looks out over Lake Lure, a nice craft beer selection, the chicken club and the spicy veggie burger were good but the Crème Brule for dessert was served cols and was a bit watery but that was my only complant.

Great place to eat lunch or dinner. Reasonably priced. Sit outside and enjoy the views of Lake Lure. The service was good and staff helpful and friendly. Having eaten here several times. the food is consistent. Its worth the trip if you haven't eaten here.

From the outdoor bar on the water to the inside dining room - dinner here is always a pleasure. A little hard to get in and out of by car, has a few boat slips too, but the location is very handy.
