We had dinner on a beautiful sunny evening on their flower-filled deck. Calamari and salmon chowder were very good. Returned for breakfast, biscuits and gravy were just ok. Biscuits didn't seem fresh.

Cozy cabin right next to the water, and easy located off the main road. Amazing food and staff, definitely recommend one of the pancake stacks! Blueberry and pecans were phenomenal!

The cinnamon rolls are delicious! Breakfast portions are nice and the food was good. Service was a little on the slow side, but the food was worth it.
