Love this restaurant! I had a wonderful table looking right at the water and enjoyed a fantastic prime rib. Fred, the owner, is a gem! :)

We visited the Lake Front on a mid week evening. It was after dark and it was not crowed. It was cool and we ate inside. The staff were attentive, helpful and very friendly. We were a party of 10 on a golf outing. Everyone...More
