“Stay Away”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Read the reviews and decided to try it - yuck! Should have turned around when we had to walk by the smelly trash containers. Not busy at all. The waitstaff was not on their game. We ordered the crab dip - $9, there was about 1/2 cup of something in the dish with stale chips. The Ahi Tuna had viens in it - they did offer to replace it. The catfish was good. Baked potatoe tasted like it was frozen and nuked. The chicken dish for $19 was awlful. The food was terrible - certainly not worth the price. Go across the bridge to Fisherman's Wharf.

“The Lake is the Best Part”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

One can sit practically in the water while enjoying dinner and drinks. That's the best part. The cuisine is uninspired. And, except for the lake view, the décor is not much to look at. The day we were there for lunch, there was only one other table being served when we arrived. One would have thought one would have quick service as a consequence, but that was not the case. It took a while to place our order and a longer while to receive our food. All in all, we will not return.

“Great lakeside atmosphere”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We stopped here on Friday, July 5th on the recommendation of our Innkeeper. We decided to breakout of the Bathhouse Row touristy area and start here. We started our "progressive" dinner here for a drink and appetizer.

We sat out back by the lake to view the water. It was too early for sunset. There was only one table of folks so we likely beat the dinner rush.

We decided on the crab dip and chips for appetizer. It arrived promptly and was very appealing. The chips were fresh and the dip had a golden crust on top. It was very good.

This looks like a great place for dinner or a group out back on the deck, watching boats come in and enjoying the sunset.

“Ok with good outdoor lake view”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

The food is just ok but the outdoor dining with a lake view is good. It is pretty good bar food and a view.

“Formerly Doe's Steakhouse”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Went there with a group of girls for dinner and was impressed with crab dip appetizer and several other menu items. We ordered a variety of things from the menu and there were no complaints. We called ahead and even got a room to ourselves.
