This restaurant has a great view of Lake Guntersville, and if your looking for fried fish, shrimp or chicken you'll be in heaven. When you order you will be given some tasty cornbread and a bowl of turnip greens. Please be advised that your meal well be huge so go hungry.

This restaurant has a great select of catfish and seafood entrees. Their portions are more than enough for one person. The cornbread, slaw , and onions are complimentary for all guest. They have plenty of seating, so the wait is not too long. This place is a must if your looking for a great dinner spot in the Guntersville area.

This is my favorite restaurant of all time. The setting is beautiful with double lights going all the way down to the lake. we were enjoying our meals as the sun was setting over the lake. It was incredibly beautiful. Our server was great and the food was delicious.
