I wrote a review on this fine place but I believe it was published under "Hotels" rather than "restaurants" Anyway - we both strongly recommended it for dates - and well, you can take your family there too. Pan seared trout is really the best....More

Pro - Good fishing, great people, relaxation, good place to sleep. Con - No military discount, a little expensive.

We didn't stay at the resort but we ate here for a late lunch on our 40th anniversary. This was right after the Sunday brunch and before dinner time. The restaurant was not crowded, we sat right down by the windows looking over the river....More
