Friday night fish fry certainly worth the $12.99 price. Wish there was a lake view, but we had a mess of fish.

Fish fry Friday night. Plenty to eat, fair prices and a nice mix of people in the crowd. Haddock isn't my favorite but they did a great job with it and would go back again. Service was good and with a smile.
