Location and water views are great. That's where the excitement stops. The food is average, at best, and only worth half the price they charge for it. Since there's really no other competition immediately surrounding this area, they can probably get away with being sub-par.

Cute tables with palapas on the outdoor deck. Only disappointment......not a full bar. Beer/Wine only (and beer/wine specialty drinks) however.....my bloody mary was mighty tasty. We didn't order food but did enjoy sitting on the deck with our drinks. Nice waterside alternative to the Lake Tulloch Resort. Good place to people watch!

Thank sulphursister
