Good food, friendly servers and a nice setting. They have docks out by the Tiki bar where you can bring your boat and just tie up and walk in

Thanks for writing, Ann. We've made significant upgrades to our fryer system to avoid just these things, but they cannot remove human error. We've built a popular fish fry and plan to remedy this immediately so we can keep it that way.

Nice and friendly atmosphere. Great place to stop at on a nice summer day out on the pontoon. Staff is friendly and the food is good

Thanks for the feedback and we appreciate you returning for another try! Unfortunately, in the craziness that is the Tiki Bar, new tables occasionally get missed. We've tried a couple methods to curb this with some success, but it still happens. If you ever wait...More

Gilligans has by far the best cheese curds I have ever had. They have two kinds, and it is the GOURMET cheese curds that are absolutely delectable. Fun and casual atmosphere.
