This was our fave spot to dine at last summer. Staff was friendly, the sand area inside for kids was perfect and the food was delish! They even made off menu customized dishes for us, had such a blast and can't wait to visit again...More

Food was overall very good. Excellent sides with creamy coleslaw and wave fries. Sampler platter started things out in a great way. Burgers and chicken sandwiches both excellent. Service very friendly but tad slow. Not to worry there is cold beer and lake view.

Warm beer weak drinks owner defiantly does not care. About only place to sit outside by the water and watch the boats go buy

After seeing ads for this place we were excited to go. This place has high potential but they seem to care less. The food was "ok", we had the fishermans platter basket. The waitress (only one in the whole place) was truly bothered to have...More
