“Food OK, restaurant needs a face lift,sunset on the water great”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

Go for the ambiance of a water view on the patio; interior really needs some TLC. 18 beers on tap from Grampa Jack to Lilja's Heifer Weiizen. More than two dozen craft bottles. Steak was tender with tasty glaze. Pork chop was generous sized and tasty.

“Multiple Visits”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

I've been here multiple times int he past couple of years, be it for a reunion get together, lunch and dinner. Great view, connected to a long pier and boat dock. The interior is badly in need of updates and is teetering on a sort of grungy feel. Food could be better, average stuff. Service has been okay and friendly. Bar is small and at times elbow to elbow making it tough to get a drink. Music quality a tossup, not sure what bridge they find these guys under. Room for improvement. Survives though due to the lack of choices in the Lorain area.

“Great way to end your day”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Great view, good music, good food and drinks and awesome service. We went on Sunday evening June 23. Shayna was our server, she was great, with good suggestions. Lobster bisque is so rich and delisious, could use a little more lobster. Chicken quesadillas weren't very good, very little chicken,cheese and vegs. Blackened chicken sandwich was great, spicey and juicy. I drank a Cosmo, it was a little weak, but I like my drinks strong. The view from the patio can't be beat. Beautiful sunset over the lake. Hope others enjoy this restaurant as much as we do.

“Good food and atmosphere.”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

We visited this restaurant late on a Saturday night. It was busy, so the service was slow(as to be expected). The food was great, and reasonably priced. We would definitely eat here again. If you go, sit outside! It's beautiful, especially at night.

“Good views, good service, decent food”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

We had great service for our family of four on a Sunday afternoon. The perch was average, but the mashed potatoes and lobster bisque were very food. Reasonable prices. The building itself is getting dated and can use a facelift but is clean. Note that the restaurant is not right on the water but you do get good views both east and west.
