I attended here as part of a work dinner. The views are just fantastic and the outside terrace is well worth sitting on. We ate in the dining room in a cordoned off bit and this was good. It was a set buffet and this was fine. Serving staff were efficient and friendly.

Highly recommended and I would return

I recently visit this location for a last minute met and greet.

We made no reservation. It was a Monday night around 630 and we were able to get a table outside where the view of the lake was just amazing. The menu is very limited and a little costly. I was a short meet and greet so we had a very good salad.

I would not consider going with the family.

We went with family on a Sat. night. It was so loud that conversation was impossible. The food was mediocre at best, and they never served our appetizers. Management was apologetic and gave us free desserts. The best part of the meal was the cocktails. I doubt that I would go there again for dinner.

Great for lunch, especially outdoors in good weather. Wonderful bar scene, but food does not match the quality at their Jersey Shore locations.

After making a reservation, we asked to be seated outside. The informed me that the wait should be 1 hour because my reservation didn't count outside. The food is average and the servers are inexperienced. The spinach artichoke dip is terrible. The bread is stale.
