We enjoyed a fabulous meal here as a surprise discovery on our East Coast odysee. The venue;the food and the whole experience were all first class. Definitely worth a diversion!

This restaurant (as well as the rest of the hotel), is very nice and traditional! They serve very good food there. Also, they have many window seats that have a nice view of the lake!
