There was a long wait-even with a reservation. The room we requested to be seated in was not available. The place is noisy. Service not great. Food was not good at all. We would not return to this place.

This Restaurant has had a recent upgrade to both the dining room and the prices. The food is very good but the Luncheon Specials are much more than before. The Seafood Crepe is outstanding and the Banana Bread is not to be missed. All the food is well prepared and of high quality. At lunch time they cater to a... More

The food was delicious.The menu was varied and had a variety of fish as well as duck, poultry, etc. The atmosphere was lovely...not noisy...very peaceful. The view in the room facing the lake was peaceful and the other room was warm and inviting.

Hadn't been here in years we decided to revisit it. Aside from all the seniors that dine here the menu is not impressive. Same items from years ago.... no excitement at all... way too pricey for a simply average meal.

We haven't been there is 20 years and thought this turned into a spot for the bus haired crowd. They decor was really great but better than that the fish was amazing. Really nice fresh fish - huge portions and great service. We will definitely return!

We arrived at 7:55pm for 8pm and had to wait for 25 minutes however they would not tell us how long wait would be. There was no accommodation or apology for wait. Food was decent.

I went with a party of 7 New Years Eve with reservations for 7:30 at night. BIG MISTAKE. Aside from the food being very marginal, we had to wait an hour to be seated. Remember, this is with reservations. The place was mobbed. I mean you couldn't move it was so jammed. The cloak room could not check any of... More

Service consistently very good. Food in general is very good but they tend to over cook the fish at times

Nothing bad about this place. Great food. Friendly, helpful personel. Decent prices. Wonderful view of pond with birds. Baked spice bread to dream about--until the next time. Have been going there for years
