Stopped during bike week. The food was excellent starting with the hot out of the oven rolls. Prices were reasonable. Would recommend it to everybody.

One of my favorites on the lakefront! Its a cozy restaurant with a great view of the lake! My husband always gets the roast duck when we come here, but I get the fish and chips. I really like the fries.

Food is very good and fairly priced. Small family owned restaurant. The crab cakes are wonderful. Lounge side is a lot of fun
