“Cool place”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

We drove up on our jet ski and it was easy to dock. Went in the middle of the afternoon so it wasn't real crowded. It has a great atmosphere, and the service was wonderful. We had appetizers and a couple of drinks, the whole time it was fun.

“Awesome food!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

My husband and I had great service and awesome food. I had the prime rib french dip sandwich. The bread was toasted, the meat was tender and flavorful and the au jus was the best! My husband had the blackend burger that had the best seasoning on it. Fries came with both sandwiches and they were nice and crispy. The view from this place is just spectacular. We sat for a while and enjoyed watching the boats, ducks and fish. We hope to come back next year!

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

The gator bites and coconut shrimp are really good but for the price you don't get much food. Its right on the lake so it's a nice little lunch spot.

“Could have been much better”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

The food here was mediocre and overpriced. The service was also nothing special. When you come with a group of seven during a time when its not busy you expect to be taken care of, not left wondering if your waitress left for the night and forgot about you.
