Friendly place. Nice staff. We sat outside and enjoyed the view of the lake. Food is reasonably priced. Drinks came quickly. They have a stage for live music which we have enjoyed in the past. Bags and sand beach make it family friendly and entertaining....More

Haven't been there since it as Gilligan's. A nice surprise. Average salad bar, but nice selection on the menu, high tops, bar and regular tables! Inside and outside right on the water.
