They had good food but the service left something to be desired. We waited over an hour for our food!! The waitress was apologetic and subtracted a substantial amount off our bill but we will not be going back!

Our baked potato was served to us frozen, lake perch was soggy and cold. We did not eat the food. Paid for our drinks and left. I highly recommend going else where.

Food is fair. Fish sandwhich was mushy. I don't like that at all. Wait staff just looked at me like they didn't know what to do. Finally I said take it back, don't bring me anything else. Watered down drink. No return for me.

Nice place but REALLY needs a lot of work. The Lake is beautiful, but the service is absolutely HORRENDOUS. The management is the problem. Our waitress on Labor Day was in tears because there wasn't enough staff to take care of their busy day. Nice...More
