We stopped in a few days ago. I had a special request for the preparation of my walleye. The chef came out and asked for more details. My food was fabulous ( spicy but not over blackebed). It's also a lovely place to eat, relax...More

We went here on a Sunday afternoon and dined in the restaurant. The pizza was great, service pleasant, but the pizza had the wrong toppings. When we were told that by the server she offered to have it remade or just have the missing olives...More

Their alfredo sauce tastes like flour & pasty. Surprising for an Italian restaurant. I have eaten here on several occasions, each time trying something new because I was unhappy with what I had ordered previously. They do offer large portions, but the food quality is...More
