Breakfast was o.k. Eggs were never done properly--ordered over easy and both days they were over medium to hard. The food at dinner was good, but the wait staff were a bit slow and disorganized. Could be because there is not enough staff for amount of people to wait on.

We each had a large sandwich and salad. After that, we enjoyed an inexpensive dessert which topped off the meal.

Nice place on the lake. The view is beautiful. We ate out on the deck and watched the boats go by This was our thrid time back and we really enjoyed it! The food was very good, although the service was a little slow. But you are sitting out on a deck and the view of the lake is spectacular.

The owner is rude and hostile, the kitchen took nearly 2 hours for salads and grilled cheese sandwiches. And as you can see, the ketcup bottles had mold growing in the lids!

I love outdoor dining by the Lake in the summer. This deck was right over the water, beautiful view. The food was good and they often have musical guests. We will go back!

Tried two times to get wings...Showboat has a policy between 5-8:00pm Friday & Saturday wings are not available, which is crazy because this place makes them really quite well. Unfortunately my family (fiancé, sister, her hubby, her grand daughter & myself) decided to go for dinner, a couple of people in the group wanted wings but it was after 5:00... More

We had stayed here in the past and enjoyed the outside dining area. As we were staying just down the road we went for lunch. It has a very casual atmosphere and lots of boat dockage. Good food.
