We have eaten here twice now in the last couple weeks. We had the Friday fish fry and lunch after church on Sunday. Both times were spot on. The views are breathtaking. The service and food were excellent. We will definitely be back!

Restaurant was nice and clean, but when we walked in at 7 pm we were the only 4 there. We almost walked out when we saw the expressions on their face indicating they were hoping to go home early. The service was below average. I...More

In summer you can dine at waterfront and/or looking out over the lake. Variety of true Italian dishes as well as American items with a classy twist presented. Full service bar. Access to lake rental items. Bonfires at night provide classy lake and woodside atmosphere.

One bartender to service 50-75 people. Long waits for drinks. Bartender not smiling...I guess I can see why, but we felt like we were inconveniencing her. Angry people on each side of the bar.

Took family to dinner here. Saturday night special prime rib very good. Grandkids liked the kids menu. Service a little slow with one waitress, but starting slow season after labor day. Nice windows to view the lake while dining.

Great steaks and seafood. I had the seafood trio and it was delicious. You're right on the water with a great view of the lake and the service was excellent. I saw the reviews but we had a great experience.

This review I am writing is based on the restaurant and bar area as we were not there for any lodging, just dinner and drinks. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere with a view of the water, or you can sit on the outdoor deck...More
