“Terrific view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2011

This is a great location and a great restaurant atmosphere. Very laid back (sometimes too laid back; e.g., when you want another beverage) but a good vibe. Frequented by travelers with whom stories are exchanged. Two for one happy hour before 6 pm. Dinner was pretty good. BBQ ribs were not like anything in Kansas City but, for where we were, they were quite good. The mixed meat plate recommended in other reviews was just ok. The refried black beans were very nice, particularly with the salsa served with the mixed meat plate. Overall, very good experience. I'd go back.

“Best pizzas & parrillada chapin on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2011

I've eaten many times at this restaurant and have never had any bad food or service. The home-made pizzas are very good and the parrillada chapin is a delicious mixture of grilled meats. The service is very good and the view of the lake is exceptional as well. I would definitely recommend it to others as it is one of my favorite restaurants on the island.

“TERRIFIC LOCATION ON THE LAKE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2011

We were a party of 10 and had a table directly on the lake. Portions were large and the food was great. Service was slow. Each of the servers had an earpiece and a mike so the kitchen can tell them when each tables food was ready. Lots of BBQ stuff so it took a little time. When you are with a group a little extra time does not matter. I would highly recommend this place, it was a lot of fun. It was a nice view of the lights across the lake.
