We absolutely love it here! Being new in the area, we've already gone here many times. We especially love eating off the Small Portion menu. Everything has been SO delicious! When family or friends visit we've taken them here and got rave reviews from them, too. We've tried so many restaurants around the region, and this is by far our... More

Nachos were delicious. Steaks marginal. Love that it's locally owned and would come back. Worth a visit! Inexpensive cocktails. Will be back!

I have been to the restaurant 25 times. I always have the Cajun ribeye sandwich for lunch. It is very tasty. They aren't too busy for lunch and the service is usually pretty good. There is a nice view of the lake.

Food was very good except my ribeye steak was undercooked and slightly cold on one end. The waiter did very well, bringing food and drink refills promptly, very attentive. It was a Saturday night and we were seated quickly. We would recommend to others.

One of the best steaks I've had in a very long time. I order the Bourbon glazed ribeye and it was amazing. Our table had a very beautiful view. I think when you make reservations you are given the best view. Highly recommend.

Sat at the bar. Bartender was the best! I read one review that said these steaks were the best he had ever had. Was thinking, "no way". But I have to agree, they were excellent! Spiced and prepared exactly as requested. My only regret is that I should have seated myself outside. The sunset was spectacular!

Nothing really wrong with the food, but - for THOSE prices - I expected much more, in both presentation AND quantity. The "service" was not impressive. Glasses were seldom refilled, orders took forever (I know, it's often the cook's, not the waitress' fault, but she could've explained, when asked - instead of rolling her eyes). I then overheard a waitress... More
