Not sure what happened here but one of our dinners was missed. It seemed the kitchen was completely disorganized. It threw off the entire table as we all waited for that plate to arrive which resulted in cold food for all. Given the high prices...More

Great food and drinks. The outdoor patio is located under the lighthouse at Harbourtown McCrackens Landing. There is a different magical sunset every night over beautiful Stony Lake. You can arrive by car or by boat as the restaurant is located at the Harbourtown Marina.

I agree with the last reviewer. Food was awful and rediculasly over priced ($30.00 for one piece of fish and a few chips). I ordered ravioli which was a very tiny portion even for a petite eater like myself but that was ok because the...More
