Stopped during bike week. The food was excellent starting with the hot out of the oven rolls. Prices were reasonable. Would recommend it to everybody.

I am very disturbed by your review. I am also confused as I don't know what you mean by "free times treated as a regular" - we do accept and encourage reservations in our dining room. We are quite small and seat only about 40...More

One of my favorites on the lakefront! Its a cozy restaurant with a great view of the lake! My husband always gets the roast duck when we come here, but I get the fish and chips. I really like the fries.
