Amazingly delicious and generously-sized broiled Mahi sandwich served on marbled rye with an ample side of yummy fries. A quiet lunch retreat where we weren't rushed and could talk without a hovering busser or server interrupting. Always a lovely experience, our menu items were delivered...More

My wife and I eat at the Channel Marker everytime we visit the lake. Their food is always excellent and very reasonable with an incredible view of the channel if you are lucky enough to eat outside.

Ordered 2 Ribeye's, zero flavor, literally no flavor at all. I doubt they even seasoned it. I had to drench it in A1. $60 bill. We will not be back.
