This casual but beautiful restaurant offers a little of everything. First best burgers anywhere. Love Wednesday night pasta night. Surf and turf was delectable! If weather permits you can sit outside looking at the lake and enjoy your meal.

We recently had our second pasta night (Wednesdays). My boys love it. They can get ant sauce and pasta they want. View is super and you can boat there.

Thank You for your review. Yes- we continue pasta night during the summer and it starts at 4 p.m. every Wednesday. Our chefs enjoy making the customers happy with the many selections of fresh local vegetables and house-made sauces.

Great view and great seating choices but the food is average. And not too much to select from. This place could be the top restaurant in the area with some tweaks and improvements in food preparation, quality and better menu selections.
