“Doesn't quite match up to its promise”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

Lovely setting and interior but the service was a bit impersonal and the food was OK but not special. Not really good value as it wasn't the cheapest.

“Pleasant atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Dinner was quite pleasant on the deck on a warm evening while the sun was setting. Food was very good and fish was served hot. Excellent flatbread. Halibut was very good but a bit pricey.

“Worst ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

Could not find a restaurant on Saturday night, but came upon this one and got right in. Should have been a clue since all others were full. Waitress spilled red wine all over my daughters white north face jacket and table. Brought her a glass of soda water for us to clean. After a bit the table was cleaned. No apology, no break on bill ( a $236.00 bill to boot for 4). I asked to see the manager and waitress wanted to know if there was a problem with the service. Then one glass of wine removed from the bill, but no manager. So I asked again. The manager visited and noted accidents happen.... What more did I want! To top it off it turned out to be a 2 hour meal and passable food. Not a good experience.

“Lunch with a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

The view of the lake from the two patios and the main dinning room are spectacular. The menu is simple and effective and tasty. They have a good selection of alcohol to enhance your meal. The waitstaff seems to be all College kids, but they are nice, knowledgeable and attentive.
If you want to have a nice meal with a great view in an historical building, this is the place.

“Didn't live up to the recommendations”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Our meals were very disappointing after we had been told by several "locals" that this was THE place to dine. The fish was very over cooked. The view from the lower patio is of an old boat warehouse. Very over priced for the value.
