“Awesome! Can't wait to go back!!”

We have found our new favorite restaurant. The food was to die for, the timing impeccable, the staff patient and helpful, we ended up enjoying ourselves and our meal more than we could have imagined from the time we set out.

“Romantic - quite - beautiful scenery .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

A minor wait time to get seated . Hostess was on a break - not a big deal. Had a table outside with a view of lake & bridge also a boat marina. It was right at sunset - outside lights & candles lit - very nice. Perfect food & service . Plan on this becoming my "special occasion " place.

“Pathetic Service!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

We were a group of twenty two people. The reservation has been made about three weeks before the visit to the restaurant on a Wednesday night. We were seated immediately on arrival on the porch and had five tables. Then nothing happened for about twenty minutes. The restaurant was not busy. We were there at about 18:00. There was one table with diners on the porch and about three tables with diners on the inside. One of our group members went inside to look for service and a one young man came out to take the drinks orders. Yes, one waiter for twenty two people. He is probably the slowest and most casual waiter I have seen in my whole life. He was later joined by a more energetic young man. This snail and uninterested pace set the tone for the evening. My starter the crab cake (do not bother, worst I tasted in my life) was served after all the main meals were served. Two others at my table did not even receive their starters. The service is slow and pathetic.

It is a pity as the restaurant has great ambiance and they could have probably sold at least another or two more rounds of beers as we were out on an excursion to the nearby caves for the afternoon.. The verdict on the food was mixed. Most thought it was OK, but for most the food was served to slow and some food was cold.

I would not recommend this restaurant. Their attitude and poor service will be their undoing!

“Great atmosphere but smoked out!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

We came here with some friends who love the place, we really loved sitting on the porch but the smoke from the burn barrel in front was killing us. The workers kept putting in cardboard then it would smoke up come right at out table and had to jump up and go around the corner. Big PC's of cardboard floated on to porch. The ceiling fan did not work. Another couple came and they moved. The food was very good. We would go back and check it out again.

“Don't bother unless you are a local or regular.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

I was really looking forward to eating here having heard good things from a couple of people. We arrived at 8 on a Friday night and the place seemed fairly busy. When we went in there was a couple ahead of us and a group of three that came in at the same time as us so we went to get our name on the list that's when a problem became clear, they ask you to wait when they have plenty of open tables because they have four servers waiting on about 40-50 people and one of those 4 is also the one who manages the waiting list. So we waited around 10 minutes to get put on a list that we were the only ones on (the other two groups of "locals" had already been seated) then we waited for 30 minutes being the only ones waiting with a restaurant full of open tables to be seated in what we were told was a room all to ourselves so that we wouldn't have to wait any longer but was really a (we seat you in a completely other part of the restaurant and you are alone and forgotten). After waiting for another 15 minutes and not even been acknowledged again let alone brought drinks we left. I would wait an hour or two for a nice dining experience but this is not it. The atmosphere and the decor of this restaurant is really lacking for what is supposed to be a nicer dining experience and the prices they charge its no wonder you can't find a menu online even on their website. I had seen some trip advisor reviews that said the service was bad but the thing that I hated most about this place was that the whole restaurant staff seemed to care only about locals and regulars and it wasn't just us others they would just ignore while they stopped and chatted for minutes with locals instead of waiting on people. I really had looked forward to going here for a long time but I won't be back.
