The food wasn't awful, but I was hoping for fresh pineapple and got canned! The chicken was supposedly marinated in a Mango sauce. I was thinking I might see evidence that this happened.

The food is unique to the lake and it is delicious. But unfortunately the rest of the dining experience here is not so great. Few boat slips is the first problem. So parking will be an issue. Next will be extremely long waiting times for food. Expect to wait more than an hour after you order. Your total time will... More
