When will you learn! Please get better quality food and a better cook or cooks. You have a great location, good music, great place to watch a Steelers game but we won't eat here anymore. Grab a beer, drink it and go eat somewhere else....More

This is a well designed bar for after boating in the summer and post skiing recreation for singles. Lots of sports Tv's, music nights, POOL tables. Food is mediocre, overpriced and ordered baked comes out fried.

Cool looking place, Burgers, fish, etc. BUT food took nearly an hour to show up...because the cook was scorching it. My chicken sandwich was cooked to death, Burgers were overdone. It was not at all crowded. Avoid this place.

Hi. My son really enjoyed your macaroni and cheese during our visit to Deep Creek earlier this month. Is there any way you could pass along the recipe for my picky eater? Thanks, Caroline Ellison Philadelphia, PA
