If you are a vegetarian or vegan, forget it.
The portabella mushroom is the pits, the beans nacho is full of beef and the pecan pie is useless.

We enjoyed a table facing the lake with Sinatra style music playing with a glass of wine. It was too cold to sit outside but was a very nice evening. We expected an older crowd first hearing the music and the knowing the area. It was a young, well dressed couples crowd, which added to the atmosphere.
The caesar salad was good and my lovers soup du jour was okay. I enjoyed the Cioppino with plenty of fish, big shrimp and lobster. My wife enjoyed her fish and we come back to try the lamp chops or pasta. Service was excellent and refills were there but we didn't notice. Desserts were scrumptious and someone could get lucky after a romantic dinner like this.

I went here with a group of friends. We had a reservation on the patio. Fire-pit and heat lamps kept us sufficiently warm. The menu isn't big...but it all looks good! Lobster Crab Potpie...amazing! Burgers were good...Scampi...everything was perfect! They even gave our party of 6 separate checks! We will be back because it was such a pleasant experience!

Go for the onion rings. And the dip for the bread! Nothing relaxes me more than being near water. This spot is a nice, tranquil location, amongst beautiful homes. We always sit outside, around the fire pit. If you're a water-lover like myself, be sure to go before sunset, so that you can actually still see and enjoy the water. We've been for lunch and dinner, and both meals were tasty. It's not too expensive, and maybe not best for a dressed up evening out, but wonderful for your usual date night. We walk our food off afterward by following the path around the lake. It's one of our favorite spots near the valley, b/c we don't have to go as far as the westside to see a large body of water!
