Took a client to this place for lunch. It smells like a gars age can when you walk in and there are flies everywhere. Our waitress was visibly not happy to be there and did a great job of making us feel uncomfortable. We were going to come back later for drinks, but decided that any other place on the lake would be better. Hopefully, they can turn this poorly managed, unclean restaurant around. I had a great experience there during crawfish season.

This is a very scenic restaurant. Our lunch food was fine. Loved the view of the lake. Our waitress was very green but also trying very hard. We ordered margaritas and asked that my wife's be mail with lime juice and not much sweet and sour. The waitress said no problem but margarita was still to sweet so we asked fir a lime to squeeze in and deluge the sugar. She brought out several large slices and we squeezed them in her drink. On our second round the waitress apologized but was told by the bartender she would have to charge for the extra lime. Really ??? I know the price of limes is high right now but our tab was over $100 for 3 of us. the waitress actually sympathized with us so. Blew it off. By the way $2.29 plus tax for an extra lime. Small minded people do small minded things.

Passed by this place many times, so my wife and I decided to try it out with my wife's brother and his wife. Went on a Friday afternoon, the first day of August 2014 and sat outside because of the pleasant weather. We were greeted with a smile and taken to our table. We did not wait long until the waitress came up and took our drink orders, then came back for our dinner order. The food was very good and substantial servings. We will gladly come back, probably in the early afternoon.

When you enter the front door a terrible odor. Grand daughter wouldn't go to the women's restroom because of the odor. Flies were taking over; couldn't enjoy our food. Chicken was dry, dry, dry. Won't go back.

We have stopped here several times while on Lake Conroe. The wait staff is friendly but be prepared to wait a little. Service is not always that quick. Food is good and the seafood is always fresh. We also like the hamburgers and oh let's not forget the mile high nachos. It says appetizer but holy cow 4 people can eat off those. They pile them high. My kids like the quesadillas. Of course my kids also like the pool table and arcade game. Sam's always has a game or two or three on to enjoy, the bar seems busy every time we come in no matter the hour. Complimentary boat slip on the water so you can eat and watch your boat if needed.
