Courteous staff took great care of us. We had arrived late due to the flights and the saff at the Inn on the Lake told us to go on in and we were served.

Eight of us dined on the gazebo surrounded by gorgeous hanging baskets. We ordered six different dishes, each one lick plating delicious. There are several gluten free options as well. The server was very attentive and met our every need. Would definitely recommend.

We ate there 2 times as we were frequently out and about--both had good servers, food prep a little slow but well served, well prepared. A little pricey but good quality. Attractive restaurant as well as sharp pub.
