Had lunch her in July with some girlfriends. The location and the view are fabulous! Service was pretty good, but the food was mediocre at best. Not sure ifI would go back again....maybe just for a lakeside beverage.

I've never had such a poor dining experience. The waitress, Olivia, verbally attacked our table after we complained about an extremely long wait time for a drink. When asked her name she said "None of your business." But later learned from a manager who she...More

Ben a while since I'd been here for dinner. Hadn't heard good things recently (like the guy that got his cheeseburger with the cheese still in the plastic wrap). A friend loves the coconut shrimp here so we thought we'd give it a try. The...More

This place used to be good. Nice patio. Summer salad does't have the candied pecans as stated in menu - not many berries compired to past . Three taco items on menu, but ran out of taco shells by mid afternoon. Extremely slow service.

My husband and I stopped here for a relaxing casual dinner by the lake. The location is phenomenal!! Everything else, not so much. They changed their Hess Chardonnay to another variety which doesn’t taste as good as the original. When I ordered the shrimp tacos...More

Went here for patio dining. Fun setting looking at the lake. Food was fine, albeit pricey for what you get. You could tell our waitress was inexperienced in how she attended to us. We would go again for the setting on a nice evening.

Terrible customer service with their marina. Check was cashed for a slip, but it took a month to get a hold of someone for the slip assignment (after repeated calls and emails) only to be told we received an 'overflow slip' in a less desirable...More
