My husband and I had soup and salad, then fried fish and potatoes. The taste was pretty basic for the soup and salad, and the fish was only ok. The look of the restaurant was also only ok, and the cost was too expensive for what you get.

We are picky about our Broasted chicken so we were dubious when our friends suggested we go there. Started with a great Bloody Mary with homemade mix that they sell to local markets. Cheese curds were hot and fresh from the fryer and plentiful to share among 4 of us. Dinners come with soup and salad bar and a potato... More

We both had 3/4 pound of shrimp dinner with salad bar and it was terrific. Took some shrimp and baked potato home because it was a lot of food. This is a neighborhood sort of place and friendly and homey. Give it a try.

The owner actually stopped and asked me how my food was. It was all great! Our table had pulled pork, pulled ham (yes, pulled ham), and chicken. It was all amazingly good. Nice quiet setting by Lake Zumbro. We boated to the dock from the lake. Great times and great service.

Lived in Rochester for decades and never been out to this great little restaurant close to Lake Zumbro. Terrific service, delicious broasted chicken, fresh salad bar and just an overall great evening. A must do visit if in the area looking for a good meal!

Service is always friendly and the food is good. It's a good place for families or a group of friends to meet. The atmosphere is very laid back which makes it comfortable for people with kids. If you are looking for a romantic atmosphere, this would not be the place for you.

Out of the city, could boat to their dock (across the road) off of Lake Zumbro. Try the Bloody Mary's and pulled pork sandwiches! VERY good! The atmosphere is fun, tiki/beach theme. Check it out! They serve grill food, or dinners, and have a salad bar on the weekends. Fun place to watch your favorite sporting event on tv.

I have been here several times and it has always been good. They usually have specials and prices are very reasonable. We came in with a big group 10 minutes before kitchen closed and they kept the kitchen open and took our order. I'll definitely be back.
