Last Friday I ordered their nachos as it noted "spicey cheese" and I thought perhaps they got rid of the velveeta. Nope it was velveeta cheese and little toppings. Yech!!!! Last night I had their fried perch with roasted potatoes... More

The service is always fast and friendly, this place has great atmosphere and I their burgers are so good and at a reasonable price! Very fresh meat and generous portions. I would not recommend the crab cakes though -- I got sick off of them when I tried them. Could have just been a bad cake but it did not... More

Zukey Lake tavern is a very nice place with lots of atmosphere. The food is good and the scenery is better. The tavern is located on the Lake which is a beautiful site during any season.

Great place to go out. Main area is huge with lots of TV's. Cool shirts to buy. Just an all around great atmosphere. Big menu. The only reason they are stuck at 4 is there pizza is not good (sauce taste like tasteless tomato paste). Overall good food otherwise. Cool outdoor deck too with bar!

It took awhile for us to get seated and served. It was not crowded. There were A LOT of staff around, but they... More
