We eat here regularly and the food is very good. The catfish is outstanding. The fish taste like the legendary catfish of Finchers from a few decades ago. The fried shrimp are also outstanding. If you don’t like fish and seafood, the cheeseburger is thick,...More

Good breakfast after an early morning boat ride. Plenty of boat tie-ups and a nice "Back Porch" to dine on overlooking the lake. Service was good, but extremely slow with only one waitress at opening. Eggs and hashbrowns were very good. Wife had pancakes that...More

We arrived about a hour before sunset an sun was blinding (no shades). Service was prompt and friendly. Food was very good. Couple of blinds and dinnerware that's not disposable would be a great improvement.

They were closed when we got there for dinner at 5:30pm. They were supposed to be open. Seasonal? We traveled miles to get there!

A wonderful restaurant right on the water. A pleasant atmosphere with employees with a great attitude. The food is fresh and cooked quite well. This is not a big restaurant, but it's big on taste and attitude.
