Really liked this one. Nice bar selection. Try the pimento queso. It is not what you expect but super delicious. The key lime bread pudding is so different and really good. Very nice service with a lake view. Will be back.

Always wanted to stop at this place. Now that I have, I won't be back. The food was less than average. Waitress was nice, but couldn't make up for the food. This place needs a complete overhaul!
