Have dined here several times and always pleased with the food and service. The menu has a selection to please everyone. Wait staff are pleasant and attentive. Be sure to save room for dessert. I particularly like the Lemon Cream Cake.

We enjoyed a pleasant dinner at the bar. We've been there twice and find it to be a wonderful family-owned and operated restaurant. Their wine by the glass is a perfect offering after a day on the lake. I enjoyed a side order of meatballs and spinach, perfect portion side. My husband enjoyed his shrimp scampi with angel hair pasta.... More
