Busy and hopping every night! Good food and nice staff. Outdoor seating is lovely, dark inside. Lovely wine and beer selection and pork ribs were amazing!!! Plus high chairs and coloring for the kiddos. After dinner a stroll down by the water. Very nice

In town for wedding. If the weather permits, sit on the patio. Wonderful view of Lake Mitchell. Nice atmosphere, helpful staff, good food. Can’t ask for more than that.

Owner Kevin Hall provides a great dinning and bar experience. Excellent dish options, and a beautiful patio right on the water front. A great choice if you're visiting Cadillac West any time of year.

We have been here many time and prefer, by far, to sit in the bar/lounge area. Very warm and comfortable. If the weather is nice the outdoor seating is wonderful. Great menu, good beer selection, very good food and service. It's a go to place.
