We stopped in for lunch and as it was a nice day, we ate outside. Unfortunately, they allow smoking on the patio and even though only one party was smoking, the smell wafted through the patio area. Inside looked dark and so we found an outside table as far from the smokers as possible. Our lunch was OK, though nothing... More

Visited for lunch today with my mom and wife. The service was very good. The food was plentiful, but not great. My mom had one of the specials, my wife a salad, and I had a burger. All were edible, but we all agreed we have had better. Place was a typical bar, kinda dark and in need of updating.

Stopped by today to visit the lake and get lunch. Restaurant is across the street from the lakefront park. The food was good and the servings were plentiful. Fortunately there were only a half dozen tables seated and one table of smokers on the patio. We didn't get smoked out, but I could see where it could be a problem.... More

Everyone had something different and everyone liked what they had. Portions were grand, and the potato lovers were especially pleased. My corned beef was excellent and almost more than I could eat.

AS usual, the food and service was good. The whole place is supposed to be non-smoking (Florida Law). W smelled smoke when we walked in. After being seated and while ordering, we asked the server where the smoke was coming from. He said it was from the outside seating area when the door is opened. While eating, the smoke became...

This is the place! You've had a long day, and you want to sit down have a cold one and laugh it off with your friends and family. Among a variety of beers to chose from you also have a scrumptious menu that includes the basics as well as Tastes from Ireland. I have personally tried everything on the Tastes... More

We had fish and chips and a burger-all excellent. We sat out on the patio and you could see the lake. The service was not bad, but lackluster and the server's attitude projected we were an interruption.
