“Great Food "On The Water"”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

The food here is excellent considering this is geared towards the bar crowd. The service was good and the waitress was pleasant. My wife and I had a great time feeding the ducks and carp which swim directly below the table area. We also enjoyed watching the boaters and jet skiers coming and going from the dock area. The relaxing atmosphere and great food make this a must stop whenever we go to the Lake.

“Shrip n Grits were delicious!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Stopped by on an off day- the place was quiet, which I understand, it never is. From my understanding, it's typically busy all season long. We sat outside which was nice, and had a great waitress. I ordered the Shrimp n Grits, and I'd definitely have them again. Really delicious!

Such a fun, relaxed atmosphere- and good food!

“Good enough”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Fun location. We sat right next to the water and enjoyed the view, ducks, boats and trolling carp. The Cajun food was a nice experiment, but I probably won't order again. I'd go back for the location, if for nothing else.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

Great food, good service and awesome atmosphere. Had a wonderful dinner and then sat by the outdoor fireplace enjoying the warmth of the fire and the view of the lake. It couldn't get any better.
