Been here a few times and food is always good and a pleasure to be on the lake. The drive in is fun- especially in a sports car with the top down!

Perfect place. Out of the way, food and atmosphere is great and prices aren't too bad. Service has always been good and what's not to like about eating, watching the game and watching the sun go down over the lake. Just spectacular. Don't dress up...More
